Chocolate cup cake

Lovely recipe from Ria's blog,recipe here, but I set the temperature way higher than what the recipe called for(my bad!) so the bottom layer is a bit burnt! But the rest was awesome and it looks nice too hey! Will attempt this again with correct settings!Thanks Ria once again!

Yellow cake with chocolate frosting

Among the maiden attempts at baking and frosting. Recipe for the yellow cake is from 'Great Baking' by Good Homes. The chocolate frosting is store bought(Pillsbury). Not a very neat end product but am happy with the result and hope to do better next time!

Allegory of Sight

This one drove me crazy..a beautiful painting and what an awesome puzzle it makes!

This is a 2000 pieces Ravensburger puzzle, 98 X 75 cms, took me around 40 hours to complete!

Loved it every bit!
