Chocolate Chip Vanilla Muffins

Butterscotch Chips Chocolate Muffins

They smell sooooooooo good, but I must control my gluttony.

Got to pack them.

Went to Timmy’s today to get a 12-donuts box (donuts are now resting peacefully in my co-workers’ stomachs).
Perfect fit for 20 muffins.

Bake Pop

Remember my kitchen porn post? I saw this similar product and end up buying it…

First time was bad because I was using home-made cake-mix and they are “half pop”… not expanding enough.

This is my second try… Still not successful because it sticks onto the bottom, 5 out of 18 broke when I removed them from pan… Still need to try again.

Well, they expand so much, they pop-through the top and I end up having tasty cake-cup. So, overall, it’s not too bad.

I will keep trying until they are perfect and I can sell them in my future cafe.

Kitchen Porn 01

Besides ukulele porn (yes, that site exists! Check it out: http://www.ukuleleporn.com/), I also watch kitchen porn on youtube. Actually, they are not really hot and sexy kitchenware. They are just infomercial. I am not sure why but since I was at a very young age, I have been in love with infomercial. Yes, I am a creep.

I really want this one! And I think I have seen it at a local non-as-seen-on-TV-store. I do know that if I buy one, my mom will kill me because I have like 6 baking sheets and countless baking pans… but this one is a MUST if I am really opening my own cafe.

This one is really cute! I know Starbuck is selling cake pops like this. I will buy one for my cafe in the future!

This one is just funny. Not going to buy one anytime soon.

I don’t know why, but since I was a kid, i was very fond of boxes. Every time I go to Ikea, i want to buy their whole box collection. Is it just me or is this everyone’s fantasy – be surrounded by Ikea’s boxes.

Pretty useless, but pretty cool. You can make your home freezy. No more paying for 7-11/Timmy-Startbuck frozen drinks!
