Snoozing!

IMAGINE THIS SCENARIO:

You are sleeping. Dreaming that life is wonderful. No problems, issues or argues. Nothing but love, peace, health and wealth.

All of a sudden; beep, beep, beep! Your alarm goes on, telling you that it is time to wake up and get ready for a new day in the real world.

As usual you don’t want to wake up. You tell yourself that five more minutes in bed and five less minutes eating breakfast won’t do any harm. You push the snooze-button and fall back to sleep.

Five minutes later; beep, beep, beep! your five minutes are over. Once again you push the snooze-button but only two minutes later another alarm goes on. You push the snooze-button for that alarm as well.

Three minutes later; beep, beep, beep! the snooze-time of the first alarm is over and what do you do? you push the snooze-button!

One minute later; beep, beep, beep! a third alarm goes on! before you have time to hit the snooze button the second alarm goes on again!

I believe you get the point! and all of a sudden there you are having five different alarms making noise at the same time, and one after another new alarms start telling you to wake up! Seriously! It’s so horrible! I hate it! Unfortunately it is the only way to get me out of bed in the mornings when my boyfriend doesn’t wake me up.

Finally! I’ve been studying, driving with my mum (don’t really want to speak about it, since it was rather… bad!) today. To cheer myself up a bit I will think about oreo-cupcakes for a few minutes, how delicious! Begin by making my basic … Continue reading

“Quoting” Shakespeare? Yes I am!

After having posted about health and training I got a feeling that I had to make it up somehow. Therefore I made cupcakes! half the cupcakes became lovely Oreo-cupcakes an the other half became, not-Oreo-cupcakes!

Tomorrow I will give you a tutorial and the recepie so that you can indulge in these sweets as well!

Paint, colour and that wonderful thing called friendship

Once again I have been painting, colouring my eggs. There may be weeks left until Easter but I want to be prepared. I’ve got lots of eggs to paint and fill with candy and sweet messages before I can give them to my friends when Easter is here.

I’m not anyone that’s got lots of traditions and yearly plans when it comes to Easter except for this small thing. I believe I take advantage of Easter using it as a reason for making my friends happy. Of course I try to make my friends happy everyday but sometimes I want to do that extra thing (for example give away an egg full of candy and a message saying how much they mean to me) to bright up my friends’ day.

That’s what life really is about isn’t it? Making the people you love happy which eventually gives happiness to oneself as well. It may not be “the” purpose of life but among other things it makes up a great part of what I want my life to be about. When it all comes around that is the real purpose of life, the reasons you pick out yourself.

It’s like life is our own smorgasbord with purposes that we spend our time trying to fulfill.

Chocolate cupcakes with mocha icing!

Today’s Cupcake Club recipe is chocolate cupcakes with mocha icing! Even if I personally don’t like chocolate cupcakes I understand these are considered very tasty among you chocolate-lovers! So today Cupcake club made chocolate cupcakes, which will be sold tomorrow at our school and all the money we get we will lend to those who need it through http://www.kiva.org. This recipe gives ~16 cupcakes.

This is what ours look like !

INGREDIENTS: 

Cupcakes
4msk cocoa, 1dl boiling water, 3dl flour, 2tsk baking powder, 1tsk salt, 2tsk vanilla sugar, 100g butter, 1.5 dl sugar, 2 eggs & 200g dark chocolate (70%)

Icing
100g butter, 500g icing sugar, 3-4msk cocoa & 2msk coffee

  1.  Start off by chopping the dark chocolate into pieces and then mix the chocolate and the cocoa with the boiling water and let it melt.
  2. Mix the eggs with the sugar and in another bowl you mix the dry ingredients together before you add them into the egg-mix bowl.
  3. Add the butter together with the chocolate-water and then pour it into the dough. Put everything into muffin cups and then in the oven where they should grow to become beautiful cupcakes, 175C in ~20min.
  4. When the cupcakes are in the oven it’s a good idea to start doing the icing. Just mix all the ingredients together with an electric mixer and put it in the fridge until the cupcakes are ready to be decorated with it and some sprinkles.

These are really easy ones to do and tasty (as long as you like chocolate). If you’d like to reduce the coffee taste one could simply exchange the coffee (2msk in icing) with water and reduce the amount of cocoa in the icing.

Good luck and good night!

Crafting

So, this is what I have been up to lately. Making seating arrangements/placing-cards for a wedding party. I’ve made almost a hundred of them, now it’s just the name-writing process left and then I’m finished!

Firstly me and my cupcake-friends made cakes (hopefully tasty ones!) for another class at school. Secondly we made cupcakes which I unfortunately don’t have a picture of (not even a bad-quality one from my iPhone) but an explanation will have to do for now. Anyhow we made carrot-cupcakes with cream-cheese on top! They’re really tasty I hope we will sell all of them tomorrow!

Back to studying! Wish me luck!
