How to eat your cake without a fork & a plate?

Sweet Life's answer to that question is: CAKEPOP BITES!

Cakepop bites are a mix of delicious chocolate cake & fudge-y chocolate frosting, then dipped in chocolate! These itty bites are so decadent that would make you come back for more!

Cakepop bites are great for cocktail parties... or no-mess alternative to birthday cakes/cupcakes! (I am sure you all are familiar with those Kiddies' faces & hands covered with frosting!)

Of course, these cakepop bites are great gifts too! Forget those boring truffle as wedding favors... why not surprise your guests with these cutie-bites?

Me-Meow! Kitty Cakepops!

Have your ever heard of cakepops? They are the newest craze in the cute food world!

Cakepops are just like Cake Lollipops, we are talking about cake mixed with frosting and then dipped in Chocolate! Not only they are fun to look at, they are extremely fun to eat!

The cakepops are so versatile and can be made into many cute designs! Being a cat lover myself, I of course had to make a batch in the shape of my favorite animal!

Just imagine these cute cake lollies at your next party; they will certainly be a big hit for people of all ages!

Happy Birthday Kingston!

When I was approached by Brandy to create some cupcakes for her little man, Kingston's 2nd birthday, I was urber excited.

Brandy has a blog called Baby Blackbird... a super cool blog about Kids' Fashion, Style, music and her two adorable children - Kingston & Harlow. When you go through Brandy's blog, you would soon realize that Kingston is one well dressed kid! If there was a Sartoralist blog for Children, he would definitely be featured!

Kingston is an animal lover! Naturally I had created Cute Animal Marzipan figures on top of fragrant Vanilla beans Cupcakes with classic butter cream.

Kingston, Happy Birthday! It was so great to finally meet you today! I hope you enjoyed the cupcakes!

Blueberry Crumb Bars

It has been a rainy weekend here, and I got soaked during this morning's farmer's market visit. I have picked up these Ontario Blueberries for these gorgeous Blueberry Crumb Bars.

These crumbly and buttery bars are sandwiched with a tangy Lemon & Blueberry filling. These have brighten up my crummy rainy afternoon.

I also noticed that the edges of leaves are starting to brown and bustles of Ontario Apples are starting making their appearances in the farmer's market. These are definitely signs that Fall is coming! Now I need to start to think of all the Fall ingredient I want to experiment with... any suggestions???

Rock & Roll Birthday Cupcakes: Chocolate Skulls

The birthday girl is young at heart with a rock & roll edge. Her wardrobe is full of black, greys & skull. I couldn't think of anything better than to surprise her with these cupcakes. They are classic golden cupcakes with a devilish Chocolate icing, then dazzled with chocolate skull toppers.

The toppers are hand made with dark & white chocolate. Some thinks Skull is symbol of death & danger... but these skulls are symbol of yum in my opinion!

Once again Happy Birthday to the special lady!

The Essence of Summer: Strawberry Rhubarb Cupcakes

One of my favorite pass time during my summer weekend is to visit our local farmer market. I love the fragrance of fresh herbs, vegetable & fruits from Local Ontario farmers. I truly believe in eating & purchasing from locals, but it becomes quite difficult when cold weather dominates Canadian climate 6 months a year. I suggest all of you to get out to your local farmers to get advantage of the glorious produces out there! there is only a mouth of summer left!

During the past weekend's trip, I had a very rare occasion to able to get my hands on some fresh Ontario Rhubarbs, then I hopped over to the next farm stand for some fresh Ontario strawberries.

With these amazing produces in hands, I rushed home to makes these amazingly fresh tasting Strawberry Rhubarb cupcakes with Strawberry Rhubarbs icing. Top with handmade Berry gumdrops.

Mango Tango

When I walked past the produce section of a Local Asian market this morning, I could not resist that sweet aroma of the ripe mangos.

I love the taste of the Kidney shaped mangos, which has a tangier flavor. The round Red mangos which are more readily available in common supermarket, have more of a honey sweet flavor.

The crisp & light texture of Macarons sandwich with a fresh Mango infused mascapone filling is the perfect sweet treats for a bright sunny afternoon.
