Two Toned Frosting

Two toned frosting is one of the beautiful ways to frost a cake or a cupcake. If you want to combine two colors for a theme then this technique works perfectly. Like for instance, if you want to make cupcakes for a sports team which has two colors then this kind of frosting will make your cake or cupcake look beautiful! This is a simple method to combine two colors, you can do the same with three colors too.

Double Chocolate Mousse Cake

I made this delicious melt in the mouth mousse cake for my husband's birthday this year and we totally loved it! The dark chocolate and milk chocolate combination balances very well to give the perfect flavor and taste to this cake. The mistake I made with this cake is that, I added a layer of melted chocolate on top which set hard and made it extremely difficult to cut the cake. Outside of that, this cake was perfectly divine!

Banana Ice Cream

Another ice cream for the summer! So far this summer season, I have made jackfruit ice cream, mango ice cream, vanilla ice cream and this banana ice cream for my nieces. I was not planning to make banana ice cream but then so many bananas were going waste so I decided to add it to my ice cream and it tasted too good! If you love bananas or if you want to make your kids eat bananas, then you can make this ice cream!

How to make a Castle Cake

For my daughter's 7th birthday, she wanted a castle cake, she told me well in advance that she wanted a castle cake so I had plenty of time to think how to build this cake. I don't work with fondant so I had to make a castle without any fondant accents. I went through many images on google and worked out an image that worked well for me. I drew out a simple castle cake design, one that will be easy to make and simple to build.

Chocolate Banana Mousse

Very often I make a banana mousse whenever we have 1 or 2 extremely ripe bananas that no one wants to eat. Sometimes I add some melted chocolate or cocoa powder to it to make this chocolate banana mousse. This makes for an easy and simple dessert for the family.

Kuthiraivali Idli

Millets are a storehouse of health and nutrients. All the different varieties of millets are packed with goodness. Kuthiraivali also called as Barnyard millet is a rich source of iron and fibre, low in calories and has a low glycemic index making it suitable for diabetic patients.


Kuthiraivali Idli

I sometimes add some millets to my idli batter, this time I decided to make an full millet idli/dosa. My previous experience of millet idli is not good. I used to get hard idlis which was not palatable. This time I got some nice soft idlis for the first two days after grinding the batter and then I switched to making dosa. Although the idlis were not as soft and fluffy as my usual idlis made with rice, this idli was quite good and above my expectation. Do follow the steps to make a good idli batter.

Homemade Hing Powder

My parents always wrinkled their nose when they see me use the store bought perungaya powder, if you read the label carefully, there are a lot more additives in it other than the perungayam. My parents use the katti perungayam or the asafoetida block which they say is the purest form but I find it to be be so cumbersome to use it. Until one day I thought of this method and it works really well! It's easy and simple to make and you have clean and pure hing powder to use!
