Lots and Lots of Baked Goodies at SnR Alabang

I don’t frequent SnR very often, because (1) I don’t have a membership card, and (2) I really resolved not to to get one because I know I’ll binge on purchases there every time. But before summer was over, I agreed to drive my mom, aunt, and the Princess there so I could stock up on some baon items for school. I was surprised at all the new varieties (new for me) of baked items they had for sale!  Continue reading “Lots and Lots of Baked Goodies at SnR Alabang”

DIY Cake and Cupcake Toppers (2nd Edition)

12 Months of Chocolate Cake

When I was pregnant with the Princess and then with the Baby Ball, I was deprived of consuming what I consider a “reasonable” portion of dessert.  Aside from the guideline that pregnant women should still watch their weight, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes in both pregnancies (boo.). So, when I was finally cleared of diabetes after giving birth, I did what any chocoholic would do: I celebrated with twelve months of chocolate cake! Continue reading “12 Months of Chocolate Cake”
