Ok, so I’ve been making a lot of cake lately. I have to say it is part of my excuse of feeling pregnant, which I am not. But Ive been having so many symptoms lately that I took a pregnancy test to confirm my fears. It turned out negative and so I went on my way. But I kept having unusual cravings, hyperacidity, aching back and nausea that after a few weeks, I took another test. which came out negative AGAIN! So I am just attributing all these ‘pregnancy feeling’ to being psychosomatic because people keep telling me that it is the perfect time for another baby.
Back to my cheesecake, I made another batch for friends who are celebrating their birthday on almost the same dates since they loved the initial one so much. I used the same recipe as the last time and added some walnuts and swirled the nutella right after pouring on top of the crust.
It didn’t come out perfectly. I think I put too much nutella… Oh well, it was still good anyway. Now I have to work on asthetics.
Speaking of baking, I made a chocolate mouse cake last week using chocolate tablea from the Philippines. Tabléas (or tableyas) are pure cacao beans that are dried, roasted, ground and then formed into tablets traditionally used in the Philippines to make hot chocolate (source: http://www.tablea.com.ph/). Surprisingly everyone loved it! The sad thing is, I didn’t take any picture of it. I’ll try to whip up another batch some time soon. I used leftover chocolate cake as a base, crumbled it up and added cream cheese and chocolate fudge. Anyhow, I’ll try to remake it soon.
Cake love <3!
