4.8.10: Manila Toffee Co

8 Apr

My friend Kassy had an Easter Egg Hunting event and we were coerced  asked to participate. So we did.

After being massively pressured about having to decorate a booth, (People who know me, know that I can make a mean cake, but I might be a little hesitant to decorate it, think back to the Cake Decorating with Fondant class wherein I made an clock instead of attempting to make flowery-type wedding cakes.) our booth looked awesome.

Thanks to my quick thinking and my mom’s propensity to keep stuff that might be useful, such as styrofoam flower and grass decorations.

Tada!!! I give you our booth!!

Not bad right?

In the end we enjoyed the event, although not a lot of buyers, so we have some left over!

Truffles and Toffees at P90/box til supplies last! 🙂

4.15.09: The Holy Week That Was

14 Apr

So how was your holy week?
Mine has been pretty normal and steady, and such is the way of spending vacation at home.
Also, being given the chance to be at home, with our cook having her vacation, I found myself with chances to flex mi culinary muscles during this lenten season.
I cooked mainly two things: Chicken Ala King with Homemade Biscuits and Corned Beef Spaghetti with Chicken fingers

Let’s just say, both were deemed eatable by the public, even the biscuits, which I am surprised I managed not to make as hard as hockey pucks. Seriously, I haven’t messed with dough in a while.

So far, the cake business has been picking up and as of today, there are outstanding orders for my chocolates, so I think all good. I should really start doing some fondant, as this is the key business growth, but I’m caught up in the other business side (the resort), it’s summer and things are picking up at that end. All is good.

I really really want to flex my culinary muscles and I need the practice, I’m | | close to peddling my services as a teacher, but I can’t right now, too many stuff to do, although I am getting my teaching fix teaching Jap workers/businessfolk english, but that’s another raket all together.

I hope everyone had a blessed easter, we’re eating somewhere tonight, and I hope there are some pictures!

PS. the crush is giving me baguio treats! ayos!
