Beautiful Sunday # 6 - Little pieces of happiness

I confess that I'm a grown up who remains to be very kid at heart. Despite the numerous priorities and tasks to be accomplished, I admit that some simple things are more than enough to make me happy. I may have a complicated life but at the end of the day, some shallow things are more than enough to raise my downing spirits and cure my unpredictable sadness attacks.

One thing that never fails to alleviate my drama and self-pity moments is.... FOOD! LOL You see, I told you I'm very kid at heart. A little food bribe is enough to alter another gloomy day. I have an endless list of all the comfort and recovery food I love. But I guess one of my favorites would be sweets, particularly CUPCAKES!

When I was growing up, we never had those artistically designed cupcakes. What we had then was the typical bread cupcakes. If I'm not mistaken, I think Cupcakes by Sonja started the cupcake trend in the Philippines. After it's establishment, bakeshops and other restaurants also started venturing to these cute and sweet pieces. Another confession to make, the cupcake addict in me haven't even tasted a piece of Cupcake from the famous Sonja's. My cupcakes' cravings some days ago made me google some unique cupcakes in the web universe. Hence, I ended up compiling these adorable mini cakes

This looks like a yummy strawberry ice cream topped with Pistachio nuts. A grouchy day can be cured by this piece of pink beauty.

I never saw anything like this in my country yet. The entire cupcake is just covered with frosted icing.

The "cheesy" cupcakes for the hopeless romantic in me.

These cupcakes are for the proud members of the female populace. Though honestly, I would have second thoughts in eating these cupcakes. I already enjoy looking at them.

Why cupcakes didn't become a trend when I was still a kid?

A princess should have her own castle. I find this simple yet very creative. I would never have thought of turning biscuits to miniature castles.

Do you love cupcakes too?



P.S. Calling the attention of my friends from the Philippines! You might be interested owning any of these books.

I'm giving them away for free. See my previous post for instructions.

  16. I don't think I've ever seen cupcakes as creative as you have shown. I loved the flowered ones like the roses and the terra cotta pot with roses. My favorite is the cupcake in a cup. Looks like those must have take a looooot of time to create. In an earlier post, you showed a wonderful infinity type pool overlooking the ocean. I hope you do a post on that soon. I wanted to be swimming in both the pool and ocean!
