Holidays, parties & celebrations
I cook, I shoot, I write, but I don't do the laundry. I don't like housekeeping very much either... more »»
Slices of fudgey chocolate brownies work well too. I usually dip vanilla-ice-cream-chocolate-brownie sandwiches in warm melted chocolate, then blast it in the freezer to achieve a coating of chocolate. (Of course, the sandwiches have to be frozen solid for it to work :p)
Yeah, I prefer deserts that actually TASTE good, and not ones with too much icing/not enough flavor (which seems to have been the trend with Filipino commercial bakeries since time immemorial).
Ok, that’s the next project. Brownie ice cream sandwiches dipped in chocolate. I’ll never lose weight hahahaha
Re icing: Truth be told, I don’t even like icing. I especially hate boiled icing. The only kind I can tolerate is butter icing and frosting made with whipped cream. Cupcakes with icing as tall as the cupcakes themselves make me cringe.
Finally! Thank you for that! I too detest thick most icing–even butter icing; the only icing I love is chocolate fudge/ganache. Whipped cream is good too.
But what irks me the most are those retro 70′s looking sugar flowers that all the kids fight over during bday parties. It just feels so… artificial, and totally unnecessary for the cake.
Anyways, as always, I’m glad to see that there are Pinoy bloggers with good taste
I’m with you on ganache.
What I hate most are plastic toys on top of boiled icing in kids’ birthday cakes hahaha It’s worse when the dedication includes ALL family members including grandparents. Can’t those go on a card accompanying the cake? Do the persons giving the cake have to ADVERTISE themselves like that?
Anyway, we’re going to irk a lot of people with this exchange already, so… enough said.
