Mini Chiffon Cake | “no picture please”

Mini Chiffon Cake

One of those embarrassing moments:

“There is something magically about the word “mini or little” especially when it’s applied on sweets and desserts. Gather all the mini’s around and you can get lovely shots. In Asia, there are a lot of these dessert shops where they sell mini cakes.

So whenever I walk in one of those

KitKat in Japan | Pink chocolate

 

Pink KitKat - Japan

Pink KitKat – Japan

KitKat is huge in Japan; there are tons of flavors – from green tea to wasabi. In Amsterdam we got these “normal” ones. This pink one I got it from a friend as a little gift. I don’t know if you can still call it chocolate, maybe cookie wrapped in a creamy jacket is much more suitable. It may taste like bubblegum, but it is cute. #Sunday snack

Christmas table decoration

Golden chocolates| Christmas table decorations (the easy way)

CHRISTMAS DECORATION – Are you ready for Christmas?  For me, I am still in the middle of preparing my Christmas dinner and that is already taking all of my time. So for the Christmas table I usually don’t do much more than a simple dinner setting – lights, plates and matching napkins etc. However, to have some more Christmas feel, I usually set up the coffee table where the guests/ family are sitting and waiting. Chocolate always does the trick for the young ones, but of course also for you and me.

The easiest and quickest way to have your (coffee) table Christmas proof (and probably also the cheapest way), you will need to have the following:

Afternoon tea | Hello Kitty Café in Hongdae – Seoul

SEOUL TRIP – My first time in Seoul (South Korea) and it was amazing! Seoul is a city where traditions meet the modern. A city that truly never sleeps; you can shop and eat 24 hours.
