Easter Cupcakes & What I’ve Been Up To

April 11, 2012 / Personal / 0 Comments

I hope everyone had a fun Easter Sunday with family and loved ones!  It’s been a while since my last blog post and here’s what I’ve been up to lately.

I had a half day at work on Good Friday.  Right when I got home from work, I went straight to a grocery store to buy ingredients for Easter cupcakes.  That night, I spent 5+ hours baking 48 cupcakes.  24 Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting + 24 Vegan Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.  The next day which was Saturday, I took 28 cupcakes with me to Park Terrace Senior Living in Rancho Santa Margarita where my best friend, Veronica, plays flute every Saturday during church service (Park Terrace has a small chapel inside the building).  As you can see in the photos, Veronica and I were having a lot of fun (probably too much fun, hehe) setting up the table with cupcakes.

Just in case you’re interested, here’s the recipe for Vegan Dark Chocolate Cupcakes and Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.  Oh, by the way, the Chocolate Buttercream Frosting was a little too sweet for me, so I tweaked the recipe by adding more cocoa powder.  I also added extra milk since I like my frosting on a more creamy side.

I recently created another online portfolio at Coroflot and finally added a couple of projects to my Behance page.  I created the Behance account years ago but never added anything to it until now.  I’ll continue updating my Coroflot portfolio as I update my portfolio here at Daxis Design.  I plan on adding more stuff to my Behance page as I keep working on personal/self-initiated projects as well.

Nowadays, I’ve been busy working on The Sketchbook Project: Limited Edition.  I need to complete my sketchbook and mail it back to NY by April 30, so I’ll probably stay busy for the next couple of weeks.  🙂
