Sorry for the lack of updates for the last 2+ weeks. I cannot believe it’s February already. Did January just fly by without me noticing? Still, it had been pretty crazy with multiple flare ups and bed-ridden days but of course not forgetting the many CNY reunion dinners with the lou-hei and steamboats. Dad and mum were sweet enough to drive up to KL for a weekend where we stayed at the Sheraton and since dad was a member of the Starwood Hotels, we were able to enjoy some privileges- free flow of Hors d’oeuvres every evening with pots of TWG tea, enjoying breakfast in the lounge with the lovely view from the top in the mornings. It was a nice break with the family..
Anyhow with all the craziness of Christmas and Chinese New Year, I had not been baking at all so my swollen arthritic hands were starting to get itchy and I decided to get back to my oven and make something special for everyone who had been so sweet and looking after this sick child all this while.
I stumbled upon this Ferrero Rocher cupcake recipe and was thrilled at the idea of cutting open a cupcake and seeing a ferrero rocher chocolate ball inside (little things in life excite me) so I decided to try it. I made 2 batches of 6 big cupcakes and did not realise I had so much remaining batter left! Ended up making chocolate minis (about 46 of them) which turned out to be a terrific idea because the chocolate minis were delish and fluffy.
And of course I wanted an excuse to use the new baby that daddy had bought for me last Christmas!
