Friends have been asking me how I am able to do this “professionally” done hairstyle all by myself. Whenever I attend events, dinners, parties etc in this hairstyle, I always get very nice comments on it and often think that I came from a photoshoot because of my nice up-do! So… when I say to them it’s really easy and takes me less than 10 minutes, no one believes me.

This is the messy donut which I prefer for a slightly more casual feel:

Hope this helps you all! It took me some time (a few months maybe?) to figure out this method since I purchased this donut to use. I found the official methods much more difficult and challenging to DIY. Have fun practicing!

It’s the time of the year again! Time to eat our hearts out and feel guilty after…

This year I decided to bake Cornflakes Cookies to add to the new year goodies at home. Didn’t have much time as I just got back from Hong Kong so needed something nice, yummy & simple to make!

Ingredients:
200 g unsalted butter, softened
200 g brown sugar
2 eggs
350 g self raising flour
1 tsp grated lemon/orange rind (optional)
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 150g box of Kellogs Cornflakes, crushed
Packet of mini cupcake casings

How I made it:
– Pre-heat oven at 160 degree Celsius
– Cream the butter & brown sugar in a mixer
– Add eggs one at a time, mix well
– Add vanilla essence, mix well
– Slowly pour in flour 1/3 portion at a time & put electric mixer on low to mix it in. (if you’re using Kitchen Aid Speed 3)
– Roll small balls of batter in your hands n drop it in the bowl of crushed cornflakes.
– My shortcut way is to roll 8-10 balls and place them in the bowl n swirl them around in cornflakes to coat the cookies. Saves a lot of time!!!
– Fill up the baking tray and bake for 18-20 minutes till golden brown.

And… Wah lah!!! Yummy simple cookies for CNY to impress your friends & family!

Enjoy this simple recipe!

And 恭喜发财!!!

XOXO
