The view if the garhoud bridge from the edge of an abra boat. The ride was very peaceful and relaxing as the light from the blue bridge appeared over the boat while we crossed it.

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 🙂

Box park

I looked up and found a lot of containers

Is it the harbour?

No its the box park.

Trust me dubai is really an amazing place. Everytime you look up you find something different and it never stops mesmerising one.

Once while passing al wasl road towards jumeira beach is when I saw this beautiful line up of shops with a container head. The interior and exterior is really unique to me. I sure have seen people living containers but never seen it been made to a modern architecture.  Only the the top is container the bottom is very beautiful shops with a very different design each one of them representing there concept

Look Up

The box park has many restaurants in boutique style from ice cream to cold juices and cafes you can find many stores. Starbucks is one of them and all of them are very cozy that one can get lost in which to choose.

If you are travelling to dubai soon do put the box park in your “to visit” list.

It’s a nice place to hangout with friends and family.

Look up for the containers 🙂
