Chocolaty Mess

Some people say chocolates make people smile. Well, not all the time. 🙂

I don’t really like melting chocolates when I’m in the kitchen. I’ve tried to avoid melting chocolates too many times, but I guess I just really have to do some melting here and there if I want to improve and be creative in baking. (This is somehow part of facing my fears/ self-challenging thing for me. )

Labor of love. While melting chocolates this morning, all I could think of was that it was a labor of love for people who are into chocolate making. Then I remembered famous people who work with chocolates. They make a great mess, wiping, sliding, tempering and just produce a tiny ball or heart-shaped chocolate. 

Made these anchors for the Jesus, You’re  the anchor of my soul themed concert this morning.

Is it all worth it? Yes, most of the time. 🙂 I’ve learned that there are many things in life which can only be achieved by working really hard. It may look as if lot of work is being done and yet nothing’s happening. Like working real hard and yet being compensated less. In life, beautiful results come out of extensive hard work. Results may not be seen now, but they will surely appear in the future. Just like when trying to teach kids good behavior. It’s painful at first, irritating often, because of the number of times  you have to do the same procedure. Changes do not take effect instantly, and yet you continue doing it, hoping that one day, you’ll see results.

Well, I got good results this morning with my chocolate.

  1. I haven’t tried using chocolate for cupcake decoration. Yes, you have good results. 🙂 Sometimes, we really need to challenge ourselves to improve our baking skills. Matry nga next time.

  2. I’m sure you baked the cupcakes too, they actually look nice, pwedeng pwede ibenta! Thanks for the words of encouragement! My son is into hitting people with his hand now every time he gets mad or loses his temper. I’ve said it gazillion times already not to do it but he still does it. Yes, I know it won’t be easy, I’ll keep on reminding him again and will hope for good results.

  3. I’ll soon be baking cupcakes, but I’m scared haha kasi my cookies are always a fail. So iniisip ko baka hindi ako talaga pwede sa baking. But then persistence might just get me somewhere? Hehe. I admire your craft. Keep it up! 🙂

    1. Haha. I’ not god at cookies either. I rarely have perfected cookies. haha With cupcakes, it took me some failed attempts as well. =)

  4. The cupcakes looks really delicious! I haven’t tried baking pa, though I really like to learn how to. I think you really have to work hard and persevere so you can the get the best result.

  5. Wow! Your cupcakes looks so yum. I like the designs it looks catchy and I really appreciate your effort. Like you sometimes para akong sirang plaka paulit ulit nagreremind sa anak ko sa mga don’ts but I believe that someday I will reap what i sow. everything may proseso and I know the right time comes at ma eenjoy natin ang result.

  6. Wow! It looks delicious! Anyway, you made me realize that I need more patience in teaching our kids good behavior. I have a 2 year old son which is super kulit and active. I know that as a mom I should be the first person to understand him. I guess I have to be lenient sometimes. Thanks for this enlightenment.
