Smells yummy! And some monsters came…!!

I did a baking party with two young moms 🙂 I showed how to knead the dough and they did pretty well while also taking care of their babies. Hmm, moms always have multiple tasks to do… they are great!!!

Preparation -kneading the dough

 

TA-DA!!!! We successfully baked melon breads with chocolate chips as well as cookies with macadamia nuts!! 🙂 We all did a good job!! While baking them, they were smelling so good and the entire house smelled like a bakery shop. Yummy!!

The nice smell attracted not only us but also some creatures…!!! Can you guess??  It was the creature who loved cookies a lot… Oh well, it was a baby cookie monster 😀

“Me want cookie!” “Me eat cookie!” “Give me more cookies!”

Why? Why are you eating cookies alone? Can I join you?” His best friend , Elmo, has joined him now.

Can I join you?

 

Cookie monster was very kind so that he shared his cookies. Nom nom nom…

“Oh, this cookie is so yummy!!” Elmo looks so happy 🙂 Is Cookie monster a little bit jealous now?

Both of the cute little monsters enjoy cookies. “Hmmm… yummy!! There are nothing better than cookies!!”

A while after, Elmo was stuffed. She wasn’t interested in cookies anymore. You know Elmo is always curious about everything!! Yes! Curiosity is good 🙂

“Can I switch to be Elmo now?? That looks fun!!”

Can I switch?

 

“Sure, you can use mine!! Here you are.” Oh, she is also very kind!! 🙂

Here you are

 

“Hmmm…I think I should be Cookie monster! I shouldn’t be Elmo! I want to take off this cap!” He tries to take off the cap.

I'm Elmo

 

“Oops!!” He couldn’t take it off…

Oops

 

“Did you see that? Oh I’m shy!” His smile is so cute 😀

The two little monsters played happily together 🙂

Elmo Strawberry manufacturing :)

Let’s decorate your cake with some fancy strawberries!! I’m sure everybody will love them!! Tutorial Elmo Strawberry

Prepare all the ingredients and tools, and let’s get started 🙂

 

◇ Ingredients 

  • Strawberries
  • White chocolates chips (for eyes)
  • Orange button shaped chocolates (for noses)
  • Dark colored chocolates (for the eyes and mouthes)
  • Whipped cream

 

◇ Tools 

  • Knife
  • Baking sheet
  • 2 bowls

 

◇ Recipe ◇

Step 1. Wash strawberries very well. Then, take off the stem and cut the bottom part of the strawberries slightly diagonally (so that strawberries can stand by themselves and they can show their faces).

**In the picture below, you will notice strawberries slightly tilting toward their back.

Put chocolates on Strawberries

Step 2. Put 2 white chocolate chips and 1 orange chocolate nicely on the strawberries, using whipped cream as a glue.

Step 3. Melt dark color chocolates. Put dark color chocolates in a bowl, and you will put a warm water into another bowl below that bowl. (Make sure not to let the water come into the chocolates bowl!!)

Step 4. Roll one sheet of baking sheet nicely into circle so that you can use it as a chocolate pen. It will be better if you roll the edge sharp with just a tiny hole for the chocolate to come out. Pour melted chocolates (made at step 3) into the pen-shaped baking sheet.

Step 5. Draw black eyes with the chocolate pen made at step 4 in the white chocolates. You may also draw their mouthes.

Step 6. You will put whipped cream on your favorite cakes, and put your sweet Elmo strawberries!! Done ♡

Done- Elmo!!

Aren’t they too cute to eat?? It’s a little bit of effort, but your cup cake will look a lot more prettier than just normal strawberries on, isn’t it??
Happy tea time with extra smiles 😀 ♡♡♡

How could you resist him?

Curiosity is good

After Cookie Monster, I couldn’t resist making Elmo!! How do you think of him? 🙂

Elmo Beanie

Here is as usual the cap on my stuffed cow. You know Elmo is really curious about everything. As we grow up older, we may tend not to ask often… In my case, if the topic seems difficult, then I easily give up to know more in detail… Maybe I should behave as Elmo does!!
