Expand

Big Questions, Will I expand already? && by expand, what does that mean? Upgrade my menu, Find a good location? WHAT? HOW? WHEN?

Those questions haunt me every now and then and still as of now, I don’t have answers. I’m an almost 23 year old girl who is confused, in need of an advice, and doesn’t know what is what. I admit this is a point of my life where I’m obviously, LOST.

What should I do? How will I do this? When will I do it? YUP, question marks are pretty useful now a days but I’m more comfortable with periods. But one thing is clear and that is I WANT TO EXPAND and by expand I mean, my life my business my decisions my everything. I’m at the peak where I want changes to happen to me and I will make that happen, I will make expand happen.

Rosette Cake 

So this is my first time to make this, this is a 14×20 sheet cake, vanilla chiffon cake. I’m a little but nervous in making this because as I’ve said this is my first time; first time to make the vanilla chiffon cake, first time to make the chocolate ganache, first time to make the rosette design so yeah, goodluck!

Scanned a lot of sheet cake design through Pinterest and I did found a very simple yet elegant one,

(Photo not mine)

Yup this one, the rosette design is just basically on top and with a little paper topper on top and it’s good to go. So here’s my step by step in making my Vanilla Sheet Cake with buttercream frosting, centered with chocolate ganache and topped with rosette’s.

Freshly baked baby, I love seeing those circle airy burnt on top of the cake.

Make sure that when you cut the cake you use a very sharp knife and be careful when you do so. Generously put the chocolate ganache on the center of the cake, I REPEAT only at the center then what you do with the side is just slide some ganache using a spatula or a bread knife because once you put the other cake on top the ganache that you poured on the center will spread on the side so be careful with that one. It tends to be messy sometimes.

Perfect! The ganache has behaved properly.

So I was too excited to make this that I immediately designed the top part of the cake, WHICH IS WRONG because it should be the last part to design or decorate. But of course I still managed to fix this problem, like in our expression here in the Philippines “Keri lang!”

Here it’s is! At the side is just some up and down using a round tip and I piped the side base with a close star tip and viola! I’m done this is headed to the refrigerator.

Next Day ☀️

Happy Easter everyone HE HAS RISEN.

Here is the finished product and ready to deliver!

I’m so happy with the result and with the feedback of course. I have always believed that “kapag may tiyaga may nilaga” that’s another saying here in the Philippines mainly saying that IF YOU WORKS HARD YOU GET GOOD RESULTS OR BLESSINGS!

Tada for now! Happy baking 😊

The Push

Clea was responsible for the push && I thank her for doing so. I think she did great for doing it, she made me feel inspired and really motivated to share to the world what I got. We all got that something to share to the world, for us to take part and in my part it’s making sure that your stomach is satisfactorily full. I may not be that good for now but I promise Clea and I’ll do it for you all that I’ll be as good as Gordon Ramsay, wishful thinking.

 

So let’s go back to the main topic here, The Push. Clea played a big part for HAPPY TUMMY to be who she is right now. It wouldn’t be this great and hmmm am I even allowed to say successful? Of course! Successful without Clea. She’s the one who really organized everything and FIXED my complicated mind. So when everything was put into places that is where I entered and did my part && that is to cook and do my thing.
After Clea’s hard work && of course my talent….
Happy Tummy kind of became viral in the online world, it was really crazy! Everyday we get a maximum of 20 order of Wicked Oreos that I couldn’t even balanced my time in school and in working all of the orders but of course with the support of my partner, Clea I’ve managed it all.
” I KNOW I’M A VERY LUCKY GIRL BUT SHE IS ALSO ” ( hahahaha )
Our everyday routine is that while I’m in school she just go to my house and tries to help and do what she can do then when I arrive I finish everything and do the deliveries. We get to finish at around 6PM && head home.

 

I like the idea of really getting busy and money was really coming and coming all the way up, I was so grateful to God for giving me such happiness and fulfillment to do what I love. Despite the backache, sweat and all of the ache’s I was happy and Clea was happy for me too.

 

Main Point

It’s not easy to be motivated to do something especially if we don’t have an inspiration or a reason for doing such that’s why God will always send you someone that will give you that push, that will make you realize how special you are for being you and make you feel good for yourself. Once you find that person don’t ever take him/her for granted because she’s your angel.

 

For Clea.

Thank You my angel for giving me that push to strive for myself and to share what I got. Words can’t even describe how grateful I am for having you as a partner. We’ve been through a lot and yet here we are still standing. Always know that I got your back as you’ve got mine.

Love,
The person you always need to remind and reprimand,
Cet.

Happy Tummy

Let me first start my first blog by describing my passion for cooking. Since I was a little girl I’ve always watched my Mom cook a lot of good stuff and bake cakes, cupcakes and make desserts which is to die for. Growing up in an environment where cooking and baking is always present, it kind of gave me that point, where it chose me to be the next person to be passed on to this kind of talent and I think that triggers my inner passion to come out and share it to the world. Just to let you know, I am not yet enrolled in any culinary school and I haven’t attended any cooking classes maybe except the classes that I usually watch in youtube, can that be even called classes?  What I am doing now is from scratch, some came from youtube, some came from blogs that I’ve read about and mostly came from my Mom, I admit that.

So, I called her “Happy Tummy” and she’s really been receiving a lot of orders this past few days and going to school while handling my home based business it’s kind of rough but God is so good I have my Girlfriend to help me make this baby rise, her name is Clea. She’s my other half, my business partner she’s the only person whom I gave my trust to my recipes and I hope that someday we can really make Happy Tummy come to life.

BOTTOM LINE is that, you got to have a passion for cooking, without it there will be no life in what you are making.
