For ingredients refer the video.

in a separate bowl beat the egg, milk, oil amd melted dark chocolate together.

I have uploaded a video with the images for a new concept.
This pudding was created after watching the great british bakeoff puddings week episode.
I was so inspired by the history of puddings and how they were made initially using meat and steaming methods. It was a very interesting episode do check it out.
In the meantime follow me on instagram to watch my culinary and travel journey as I explore 🙂

Worlds smallest Battenberg cake, Pancake stack and fondant Rose

World smallest Battenberg cake 

We have all seen the worlds smallest stuff or herd of it. But doing it and experiencing for yourself is really interesting. The joy of making yourself the worlds smallest pancake stack or the worlds smallest 5 petal rose out of fondant is indescribable.

I have been wanting to do a battenberg cake but it has been a very inactive plan most of the time. Sometimes it was due to an ingredient missing or sometimes it’s cos i dint have a square or sheet baking pan.

So i decided to make a small tiny battenberg cake to fullfill my requirements and crave for it. It was super easy to make. In no time I had the worlds cutest smallest battenberg cake. The jam and the chocolate went well together.  I did have marzipan but I decided to use chocolate as a coating as I have a few large blocks of chocolate which needs to go fast.

It can be made smaller but there is no point in making it smaller than this if you can barely taste it hence I made it 1 inch long and 5 cm height while the width was just 3 cm only.

It was cute and delicious.

 

World smallest pancake stack
I made the pancakes with a drop of pancake batter on a pan and drizzled some chocolate syrup on top.

World smallest fondant rose
The fondant rose was made to kee me occupied with the leftover fondant. It was very easy to make 🙂

Life Scars

The faded tears of pain and hurt

The pains of labour rooms

The anger and frustration of taking care

The joy and beauty of being cared for

The joy of travel and food

The happiness is the happiness of kids

The guilty pleasure of letting go

The guilty joy of arguing

Everything from crawling kids

And even the neighbours

Everything in life has a scar

In a form of memory

Or even as an image

The happy scars and the sad scars

The only scars that never fade

Like those ceasar deliveries
