Salted Caramels

I finally used the French salted butter that I bought in Paris for this candies and I'm telling you this is the best salted caramel candies ever.

I got the recipe from Inspired Taste. But as what I have said,  I used salted butter and I also added a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the cream and butter mixture.

Lavender Dream

Another project completed! 
This cutie is a birthday gift for my mother in-law.
I made the bicycle as well.
The lavenders are made out of styrofoam beads.
Patience required when assembling a small item like this.

Brussels, Belgium For The 3rd Time

Last weekend we went on a day trip to Brussels, Belgium. This was my 3rd time and I'm still very much excited. We check out almost every chocolate shops, I had a hard time choosing what kinds of bonbon or praline I will purchase. Walk, walk, walk, choose, choose, choose...time has passed and we need to catch our train back to Holland, while I am sitting inside the train I suddenly realized that I only had callebaut couveture, few pieces of Darcis macarons, and the chocolates from Mathilde. Yes that's it! no bonbons, truffles or pralines. Shame on me! 

So...here are a few Brussels photos. Enjoy and drool haha.

I made this Strawberry Ombre Cake for my sister's birthday yesterday. 
Vanilla sponge filled with macerated strawberries and strawberry cream cheese frosting. 
She is really happy. In return she gave me the sweetest kiss and hug ever.
