weekend attempt ; cupcakes


I wasn't sure if we own an oven until it was very recently that hubby found one from our wedding gifts collection. So we went to the nearby bakery store to find all the ingredients needed for baking cupcakes. It's been awhile since my last homemade treats. Together with my sister, it was lots of fun to indulge in chocolate.

naahh choc cupcakes kami. biar buruk rupa, asal sedap rasa!

English tea time!


additional info : How English Afternoon Tea Began?


At first, the British really only had two daily meals-breakfast and dinner. Dinner was the heaviest meal of the day, and usually served in the afternoon. The custom of eating a regular “tea” began during the 1700’s, as people began serving dinner later and later in the evening.


People started serving a light lunch in the early afternoon to fill the gap between breakfast and dinner, but this still left approximately 6 hours between meals with no refreshment.


For the aristocracy, or at least for the Duchess Anna Maria of Bedford, 6 hours between meals was simply too long. She began to request a cup of tea and light snacks to be served around 5 pm, and then began to invite guests to join her.
