CARDAMOM IN CUPCAKES (Birthday Treat for a Special 12 year old)

Cardamom yogurt Cupcakes and Rosewater Swiss Meringue Butter Cream  


                       

When we had moved to Bahrain almost 7 years back we were totally friendless .
After living a princely and pampered life and being showered with the complete attention of her doting grandparents ,back in Kerala, my poor poor baby girl had grown so morose and silent, after being stuck with just her dad and mom for nearly 7 months in her small apartment home in Bahrain. We were so heartbroken see our dear angel silently coping up with her loneliness that we finally decided to move into some new place where we could find her the company of some children .
We finally moved into a beautiful compound were we found out first set of friends in Bahrain and one of our closest!

A DOUBLE BIRTHDAY TREAT FOR MY DOLL!!

Triple Chocolate Cake
Chocolate and Mango Chiffon Cake filled and frosted with mango mousse and dark chocolate ganache

My little doll turned 7 last week and we tried all that is in us to make her day a special one. She had been waiting for this from the very next day of her previous birthday ..hehe yeah!! 
I had almost gone insane hearing her whining about her birthday being the only one that comes so very late in the year and that all her friends parents are really kind to make their birthdays come early, unlike hers ...phew... now how do I explain this to her !!!

PIZZA PIZZA PIZZA.....

Recipe: Whole wheat pizza and Pizza sauce 


We are pizza crazy as a family... but my kids require special mention. And of the two, my 2 year old son, kind of, rips the roof with his pizza passion!!
We just have to pass by a pizza place and the aroma coming in from there would drive him insane and he would abruptly break into his loud pizza song, which goes 'pizza pizza pizza....' NON STOP!!
He's had us embarrassed in quite a few restaurant episodes.... where in, he would start off with his coveted song every time the waiter passes by with someone else's order.
Of course, my daughter is no better, but, she has her trademark trait...pickiness, popping up even with her favourite dish, when it comes to the toppings. But for the son, it just has to be PIZZA and that would do :)
