So I’m kind of failing at blogging now. I used to post once a week, now it’s more like once a month… *sigh* I’m not stopping with blogging though, and definitely not with baking! If you follow me on Instagram you can see my yummy creations.

I don’t regularly eat and make cupcakes as I don’t like buttercream frostings. But for this occasion I made cupcakes! My way. This is a super chocolat-y chocolate cupcake with pieces of chocolate inside, chocolate ganache and chocolate easter eggs on top. Yes, I like chocolate.
I wanted mousse, coffee mousse, so I made it. I found a recipe online that looked awesome, so I tried it. The mousse was very nice and I really enjoyed eating it. The only downside of making this is that you have to be somewhat patient, but it was worth it! So do try.
If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you have seen these rolled up chocolate breads already. I made these about a week ago. I wanted something chocolate-y, but not cookies or brownies. So bread filled with chocolate seemed like the best and healthiest choice, plus I hadn’t tried that before.
Right now I’m busy studying for my exams so I’m not making anything this weekend. It doesn’t matter, as I procrastinated enough last week by making yummy stuff. So there is enough left to post!
My cousin from Canada, who had a stop over in The Netherlands brought me back some macarons of Ladurée from Paris. She definitely reminded me of all the sweet goodness of Paris. Last time I was in Paris was about 2 years ago now, I ate lots and lots of tartelettes. They were like everywhere, so I tried many. Filled with chocolate ganache, lemon curd, strawberry with custard… So last Sunday was the day to make some chocolate ganache tartelettes.
Okay, I was happy with the previous mug cake recipe I put on here. But oh boy, I will probably never make that again! This new recipe needs 5 ingredients less than that one and is way less messy. These cakes are yummy. I have made 9 of these mug cakes in 5 days, which is a lot, I know. I didn’t eat them all. I swear.
Swiss roll cakes are very common in chinese bakeries, but I don’t like those most of the time. The cake is plain cake and the filling is butter cream. I’m not a fan of butter cream, I think it ‘s too heavy. Other than in chinese bakeries, I don’t see swiss rolls in stores or bakeries here.
