Chocolate Almond Cranberry Biscotti by rltan888
Chocolate Almond Cranberry Biscotti
I was chatting with my friend about high tea Llama Emoji-09 (Drinking Tea) [V1] and I realized that I've never made English style pastries :flagofuk:  or anything European-ish before so I decided to try some this week

Today's is an Italian, twice-baked, chocolate, almond, and cranberry biscotti. The only other boscotti I've ever tried was a Nonni's anise and dark chocolate and I have to say I'm just not a fan of star anise in anything other than my Chinese beef brisket stew or roast duck. Sorry star anise, it's not you, it's me...Tears 
Well paired with some piping hot green tea, the cookies were pretty good! Thanks America's Test Kitchen! I trust you with my baking life. Suave Gentleman 

What shall I try next? Scones?Hamtaro Mouse Emoji-03 (Squee) [V1] 
DIY Copper Wire Rings by rltan888
DIY Copper Wire Rings
I've been really into Pinterest lately and I'm a sucker for DIY projects, especially the ones that seem like they are totally doable. Here the rings I've made so far from tutorials found around the site and I hope I can make some more when I get another chance. I'm not a big ring wearer myself but I know a few people that are so these rings will find loving homes with them.

All the rings are made from 22-gauge copper wire. Colors are made with nail polish. Glass beads/pearls 
Swiss Roll Birthday Cake by rltan888
Swiss Roll Birthday Cake
Neko Emoji-05 (Rolling) swiss roll cake... you know...what the title says!

*sigh* made my own birthday cake again....sad? Birthday cake  icon maybe~

But it's so fun!!!!:hyper: 

I tried out 2 different recipes this time (one chocolate and the other vanilla)

-The chocolate one is based on a matcha (green tea) swiss roll recipeArrow left…

-The vanilla is actually a chinese sponge cake in a cupArrow left…

I basically sliced up the rolls and restacked them to make it more occasion-fitting? or else I guess it would be like sticking a candle in a twinkie....a big twinkie....

Both were good :pacman: (I ate everything.....) but i think the vanilla one has the mouth-feel texture i'm looking for, while the chocolate is prettier (more like the bakeries) but drier

Both have whipped cream and strawberry fillings. The cake is topped with chocolate covered strawberries....BECAUSE...... IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!!!! and i like chocolate....Llama Emoji-64 (I love mah fudz) [V3] 

NO JUDGEY!!!!Neko Emoji-14 (Cry) [V1] hugs and kisses for all!!!! Panda Emoji-07 (Snuggy) [V1] 
Sheep Anniversary Cake by rltan888
Sheep Anniversary Cake
dancing-alpaca "am i cute?" EEEEEHHHHH..... :heart:
Special occasions call for CAKE! I rushed to put this together the night before and tried out a new cake recipe Free Avatar - CupTardCake it wasn't bad but I think I'll keep on working to make the perfectly moist chinese style sponge cake. I'll get the chance in a couple of days! I'll keep you posted!:eatcake: 

Usually when I do drawings on cake, I use white and dark chocolate but I saw a video of someone using just cream, so I gave that a go and... it was alright but if you can see, the moisture makes the baking paper crinkle and gives the picture a not-so-awesome wavy pattern:angry: 

Try again? probably, i'm not one to give up on the first try:funnydance:

Cute Animal Bread by rltan888
Cute Animal Bread
Asian style bread (super soft) shaped into cute animals. Going clockwise:fishFish bearBear Emoji-04 (Shy) [V1] turtleninja turtle  pig:Oink:  bunnyBunny Emoji-68 (Bouncy) [V4]  and chicken:BOC: . 

I might make these again, but they were a bit time consuming.

Poor little breads were squished :press: since I had to store them until the next day to get good lighting for a pic.

Here's the awesome recipe Arrow left…

I just filled mine with chocolate chips instead of bacon and cheese( which is delicious) and made my own shapes (be creative!) Back Flip 

Let me know which one you want to eat first! Whisper sweet nothings in my ear! (little chick says to eat the pig...)
