Wishing the viewers and readers a Very Happy 2015!!!!
I wish 2014 had been a great year and hoping the new year will be more
I really don’t know what to start or where to begin. I was off from this “my space” quite a long time. I know, I’m sorry my blog 😦 . But then lets start this year with great posts . The reason could be whatever but here i’m with some fun, creative, cool posts just for you. To begin with here is a post on my baking for Arya’s school teachers and the class for the Thanksgiving 2014. Arya played a major role in this to deliver the treats to his best. 🙂
I have decided to give THANKS to Arya’s teachers and his class. This is one amazing school with awesome teachers and lovely kids. Hence I put my hands on my very own baking and thought what could be better than home baked gifts. I made Cinnamon Spice Pound cake for teachers and vanilla cake pops covered with chocolate to kids and packed them neatly with Arya’s help.
Firstly, the Cinnamon Spice Pound Cake: Very easy and simple recipe also simple ingredients and just the best way to start you day with this as part of your breakfast with your coffee or can be savoring for your evening tea time snack. 🙂
1 1/2 cups All purpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tbsp Ground Cinnamon Powder
a pinch salt
1 Large Egg at Room Temperature
1 1/2 Cups Unsalted butter at Room Temperature
2 Cups Sugar
1/2 cup Milk
Preparation: Cream the butter for 2-3 minutes on medium speed and then add sugar and mix it well then add the egg and beat it for 2-3 minutes so that the whole mix looks creamy and fluffy. Meantime prepare the loaf pan and preheat the oven at 350F and also the dry ingredients mixture. In a bowl add flour, baking power,baking soda, salt and cinnamon powder and whisk it to blend well. Add this flour to the butter and sugar and mix slowly using the mixer and make sure you add the flour in portions and once the ingredients are blended well, add Vanilla extract and also milk to make it smooth consistency. Once this done, pour the batter in the loaf pan and bake it for 30 minutes. Once it is done, let the cake cool down and savor it.
Once this is done, we have decided to pack in a glass floral bowls (that i bought for his teachers which has a sunflower shape in multi colors). Then I place the 3 piece of cake in each bowl and wrap them with the cello wrap and packed in the a gift wrap tied with a DIY “Give Thanks” message labels that I printed and cut in the shape of Fall leaves. I made sure Arya write his name by himself on each label. And he did it 🙂
You can see some more pics of our crafts.
I also made Vanilla Chocolate Cake pops for kids but unfortunately I couldnt take pictures because I was almost tired and I have make everything ready for the next day Thanksgiving Feast. I will definitely curtain-raise the Cake Pops project soon in my blog. Till then take care and Always a Happy face 🙂 (That’s how I tell Arya when he cries or sad and also he tells me the same – Amma, show me your happy face.)
