NYE Goodies

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a fun first day and has kept all their body parts intact. 🙂

For New Year’s Eve, mom tasked me to make sugar cookies and cupcakes for the neighbors and so I did. I also made Carrot Cupcakes with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting. 🙂

After the night’s festivities and a few hours of sleep, I was up again for another batch of cupcakes and cake making for the celebration with the family. We made Orange Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting and my first kinda successful attempt at Victoria Sponge Cake. I’m not very fond of working with fresh fruits when baking but everything I had made for NYE had a fruit element. The sponge cake had blueberry jam, left over cream cheese frosting and strawberries in the middle, while it was topped with more frosting, apples, mangoes, peaches and grapes. 🙂

I do hope this sets the tone for the year, where I push my limits and try more new things! Hello, 2015! 🙂
