About Me

My photo
Welcome to my small little world of sweet treats. Passionate about baking cakes, cupcakes, truffles and eating them too! Having being exposed to such wonderful home-made treats from a very young age, I hope to bring across my passion and love for baking and creating new recipes through this site. All in all, this will focus on fun as well as healthy baking, decorating and everything else creative (could include my love for painting/sketching as well, so I could divert a little from my blog's title :)). Thanks for visiting!

Truffles to celebrate Egypt's victory!

The Egyptian people have shown a lot of courage and they've been creative at it as well, so I felt that I should do something (it's not so creative though) to celebrate the end of Hosni Mubarak's regime. This is a great victory for the Egyptian people and I had to treat my Egyptian friend, Mohammed, at work. He loves sweets and what's better than truffles!

He's a little camera shy, but he's really happy and proud of his people and country. So am I! Being brought up in the Middle east, I believe strongly that this is something that will revolutionize the way things work...it already has!

So here are some truffles that I shared with Mohammed!

They are just chocolate ganache (caramel and pineapple flavored) balls rolled in cocoa powder and then I piped some more chocolate on them.
