Pizza, who doesn’t love them? I do, a lot!! I really really like the thin crust italian style rather than the thick american pizza hut style, which I thought is an abomination to the original. But I’m not a snob, in the end, it’s pizza for God’s sake! Trough thick and thin, I will always love you dear pizza!
So when I decided to make some myself, the search for thr perfect crust recipe begin. Bleh.. who am I to talk? I just took the 1st pretty looking recipe on the 1st page of google search result, which is this one from thekitchn.com
The result? Perfect thin crust that I can eat by itself, I’m tempted to bake one without even thinking about the topping. Perfect recipe!
Baking breads were always a bit of too much task, at least for me. I’m not the most patient person in the world, and having to bake something that needs hours of repeat proofing of the dough, let’s just say, it’s not my cup of tea.

On these rainy days with heavy rainstorms, I always thinks of a cup of hot chocolate in my hands. Hot chocolate in its own glory is already a winning formula for me, but add with some marshmallows? Yummy!!

Isn’t she cute? This little darling is Keisha, my best friend’s daughter who turned one on March 2nd, 2013. Me and her mother roamed college with all the ups and down, but we managed to stay friends till this day. For her daughter’s birthday, she asked me if I could make the cake, of course I said yes. But then the ideas just blossomed into a whole theme of a party, which is Minnie Mouse, with not just a birthday cake, but also cupcakes, cake in jars, and sugar cookies.
She gave me a link to this free Minnie Mouse party printables from catchmyparty.com to edit and print, so I edited Keisha’s face into it and made cupcake toppers, banners, stickers, etc.
These are my favorite, sugar cookies decorated in pink stripes & polkadots. Cute!
Assorted flavors cake in jars.
And last but not least, the birthday cake. It was double chocolate cake with cookies n’ cream filling, covered in vanilla buttercream.
I think the whole set was so cute, aren’t they? The birthday girl surely loved it…
Happy birthday my dearest Keisha!
