Chocolate Wacky Cake

Wackiness don't just apply on selfies and group shots but on cakes as well. There's a Wacky Cake also! This cake has no eggs, milk, or butter on it kaya wacky, diba? hehe! Don't fret because I can assure you this is really good! It came out moist, dark and delicious.

It's been toasty in my part of the world this couple of months and I swear to take a hiatus on baking to take care of the little bun in my oven, haha, but the inner baker in me can't really resist! Good thing this chocolate recipe is very simple and easy to make.

Recipe follows...

Monster Inc. Birthday Party

It's been a while! You may, or may not have noticed my absence from posting on this blog. After like a forever blog hiatus, I'm back and ready to share! I can't promise there won't be quiet weeks (hehe)  please bear with me because this hormonal changes in pregnancy is making me very tamad! haha! Yup, I'm on my second trimester now. Thank you!

Here's what I made for my son Ryker's 5th birthday at school. He wanted to have a monster themed birthday.

This is a two tier vanilla cake with buttercream frosting. I let my little boy do the frame work. We had so much fun decorating his cake together! This are all edible.

Cornflakes-Pretzels Chocolate Chip Cookies


I love trying new recipes and feed people yummy baked goodies. This cookie is inspired from the infamous momofuku cornflake cookie recipe. I just tweaked the recipe and procedure because I am that lazy baker, haha! I just try to use what's in my pantry. You see, my bag of pretzels have been laying on my table for quite sometime now, hehe. So really this is like a dump-all-whats-on-the-pantry cookie? haha! If you're a fan of sweet-and-salty then this is the cookie for you!


mouse: my favorite food!
