Mmmmm, those are a nice idea for a Mother's Day muffin basket...thanks Gattina, you're a well of inspiration, as usual.

2007-05-02T10:39:00.000-07:00

Lis, when I just tasted that sicilian lemon marmalade with a spoon, it didn't seem to be that great as I expect. But it's ok in baked goods. But darling, thanks for your sweet words, you make my day :D

Asha, just that sugary taste in buttercream totally over-powering, even from a person with sweet tooth still can't tolerate. Thanks for your compliment my friend!

gilly, quick and easy isn't it =) Glad you like it xoxo

Deepa, you are welcome! :D

Sandeepa, seems to me, we can't go wrong with a heart shape :D

Dilip, oh yeah! You got to let me know whenever you make anything with saffron! I love to see!

Sher, that hot water thing is only my guessing. The result wasn't like 'wow'... but sometimes it is fun to try another method :D Too bad your cranberry conserve long gone, it is what I really want to fill in the cakes!

Helene, thanks! Oh lemon juice/syrup is another great idea, I will bear in mind :D

Peabody, don't worry, cookie cutter does the job, hehee.

Brilynn, thanks babe! I use fruit preserve as I don't like jam that much, you know, chunky, big!

Sushma, thanks for your sweet comment :) :) Glad you tried the basket and like it :D

Katie, as long as lemon or orange goes, I will go digging my spice rack :D

Francesa, grazie! I know the classic likes to add ginger/cinnamon/clove into citrus, since I want to make the cakes look very yellow, so thought of saffron :D

Amrita, thanks for dropping by! Sure, I've linked you up, just my sidebar not ready. You have a beautiful blog, will visit you again later :D

Freya, hehe... can't go wrong with this shape :D

Rose, thank YOU for this wonderful recipe! Really difficult to refrain from eating it right away, but it worths the waiting :D

Pat, we have eye for beauty =) =) Can't wait to see your version *kiss*

Joey, me too! Love fruit preserve or even dried fruit! But not very much fresh one though...

2007-05-02T09:39:00.000-07:00

Oh wow! That is too too cute! I love to use jam in baking...and these little cakes sound so flavorful! :)

2007-05-02T09:32:00.000-07:00

Gattina, do you own a crystal ball or something?? I printed Rose's recipe a few days ago, I can't wait to try it!
We are in sync, aren't we? :)

I love the hearts you made out of jam, so adorable!

2007-05-02T09:22:00.000-07:00

WAOUUUUUUUU Yours just look GORGEOUS. I love the heart shape and the decoration with the berry preserve and the icing sugar. Just fantastic Gattina.I am flattered that my pain d'epice inspired you to come up with such an art of work.



Oh adorable! And it's not even Valentines Day - yo...

2007-05-02T07:58:00.000-07:00

Oh adorable! And it's not even Valentines Day - you shouldn't have!

I love spice - and lemon. Most frostings, I agree, are overly sweet.

How patient are you to cut out all those hearts! But what a great result.

2007-05-01T14:40:00.000-07:00

I have been meaning ti get around her recipe and love your version just as much. Sometimes a little drizzle of lemon or some powdered sugar is better than frosting..unless it is cream cheese!
Lovely pics.

2007-05-01T12:55:00.000-07:00

Those are so adorable!! I have wanted to do something like this with some of my jam--but never thought to make cute little hearts. You are so clever! :):)

I've always wondered about the hot water too. Now I know!

These cupcakes capture my heart, Gattina - I just love how you've done the hearts with jam!

2007-05-01T05:20:00.000-07:00

Beautiful! How creative to scoop a heart and fill up with red jam! Yummy.I don't like thick frosting either,I always scrape them off before eating!:)

2007-05-01T03:36:00.000-07:00

Awww how sweet are they? VERY SWEET!! hehe I have that same Italian lemon marmalade! I haven't opened mine yet - but ohhh how I can see how good it'd be with these lil cakes!

Beautiful.. you are my idol. =)

Hugs & smoochies!
xoxo

2007-05-01T03:25:00.000-07:00

Anh, you are sweeter than any chocolate or frosting, kekee.
About the hot liquid, may I suggest you doing it only when the recipe specifies? But one thing you can change freely in cake recipes... replace plain flour with cake flour.
To compare their "tenderness" in crumb...
one done by cake flour - like a soft-feathery foam
one done by hot liquid - bean bag
Heehee.

Tanna, agree with you, food is to nourish our body AND soul :D

Ellie, oh my darling!!! *hug*

Calli, not a bad technique if we had no cake flour on hand but "desperate" for something tender, the cake interior is softer but kind of crumble at the same time. I'd say, quite interesting if only use it once in a while... that may be a reason why it isn't too popular. Thanks for your sweet words!

Shn, I am a cheapo lah. everything from Dollar shop, yipppeeee! That coaster thing originally was a candle holder, I broke it *whooo-hoo* Well, so now I have 3 coasters, not a bad accident eh :D
and thanks for your compliement my friend!

Angie *high five* If we (I mean me only) have to get fat anyway, I rather fatten by good fruit (durian for you :D), chocolate and good bread, but not pure sugar lor. I was going to e-mail as you seemed MIA... but luckily JUST saw your creation... will run over there!

Ari, oh you are so sweet... and cute :) :) For the jelly heart, my preference is using fruit preserve/conserve, love to see that fruit chuncks! Actally I don't have any jelly at home.

Jaden, right, just like that! Thanks for your sweet words.

Jelly filled hearts!! I am beside myself with glee looking at these pictures, I all but jumped in my seat and started clapping my hands, lol.

2007-04-30T21:11:00.000-07:00

Such gorgeous cupcakes :) You never fail to amaze us with all
your bakes and cooks!

Same here, I'm not a fan of thick and sweet frosting, allows me to indulge in the cake/cookie itself, instead od tasting all the numbing sweetness from the frosting.



hope you have some left overs ...you can fedex it ...

2007-04-30T18:49:00.000-07:00

hope you have some left overs ...you can fedex it to me ;)))) I liked that small heart on ur cup cake...and the coasters looks so pretty.....where did you get that from?....looks like its Valentine 's Day in April-May :)))

Shn
P.S Hey I liked your new header too....especially since you have that mango flower there :)
