Cupcakes for Marthina's Birthday Celebration

These vanilla cupcakes frosted with vanilla butter cream were for our birthday celebrant. Blue butterfly cupcakes were for boys, pink flower for girls. Each kid was given one. A candle was put on each cupcake and the kids got to blow their own candle.

Marthina turns 4

Our Marthina is no longer a baby. She turns 4 today. She's the apple of the eye of everyone in our group. When she requested a "princess cake"  for her birthday, I said YES right away. Who could turn down a request from an adorable little girl like her?

Her mother brought home the six Disney princesses from her trip to Uncle Sam and I put them all on her cake. I "built"  2 towers to make the cake look more princessy.

Mini-reunion

Yesterday, some of my pastry friends and I met for the first time since we left culinary school in July 2010. One of our classmates was back after a 6-month  stint on Disney Cruise in Florida. We agreed to have a welcome dinner for him at Siam Paragon, a  place which has extensive choices of restaurants.

Choosing a good place for a meal would always result to a never ending conference among my culinary friends as each of us prefer different taste. We couldn't decide  where to eat so we walked around for a bit to check out some places and discuss their menus, a habit we have grown to love. Then we spotted a restaurant  we'd gone to several times while we were still students at Le Cordon Bleu. We figured it would be nice to take a trip down memory lane so everyone agreed to go.

Kate ordered Lad Na, a Thai Rice noodle in gravy. Naung ordered a set of Thai dish. We were so focused on catching up that she finished almost 3 quarters of her  food  before I remembered to take a picture of it.
