You cannot protect yourself from sadness without also protecting yourself from happiness.

Strawberry Clouds

Hi! How are everyone's holidays? Mine is coming to an end soon and I'm not really looking forward to that! I've had a really good rest and I don't want to give that up just yet (fine okay I am lazy) Also, the other really annoying thing is that I've lost my pencil case and I really should find it soon before I start school again

Recently my sister and I were baking together and we made some 'Whoopie Pies'! It is this pink strawberry mini cake with whipped cream in the middle so it looks like a macaron, only it has cake instead of wafer pastry on the outside. Personally I think the name should be changed to 'Strawberry Clouds' or something prettier. 'Whoopie Pies' just makes me think I'm baking some sort of clown cake haha!

Look at all that lovely pink batter! I like how pretty the colour is Yay for pink cakes!

One batch of the little sweet and sticky pink dollops ready to make their way into the oven!

Piping hot mini cakes straight out of the oven! I kept telling my sister how the cakes looked somewhat like luncheon meat. Fortunately they don't still look like luncheon meat once we get it properly presented as 'Whoopie Pies' 'Strawberry Clouds'.

Still looks fairly blah even after piping the cream in. I can assure you though, that at this stage despite the presentation, the mini cakes already taste YUMMY~ Time to dust them over and make them look all cute!

Dusted all over!

And finally, the proud presentation of 'Strawberry Clouds'!

We did however, have one batch which was put into the oven for a bit too long and it came out brown instead of pink. At first we thought we'd have to throw it away since it appeared to be burnt but then upon experiment, we found it was crunchy and tasted like cookies with a hint of strawberry to it. Honestly, there was no burnt taste at all. Also I thought they looked similar to a certain famous cookie I like very much I tell myself I'm one step closer to cracking that secret recipe haha!

Our strawberryish-cookies!

And I shall end off my post with a photo of the accidental-cookie! Hmm, I ought to think up a name for it; can't very well call it 'Strawberry Cloud' anymore.

Here, it doesn't look at all that bad does it? You know you want to try this
