Yummy treats: Vanilla Cupcake

"There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with chocolate."

Been craving for a chocolate in the past few days since I'm a chocolate lover and i want it so badly why not do it on my own; make a Hot Chocolate Fudge Cake! Yummy... , so i searched the net and find a recipe that I can easily make.

Here are the ingredients :

3 1/2 ounces all purpose flour (about 3/4 cup)
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa

teaspoons instant espresso powder (you can use more or less depending on your taste)

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup unsalted butter , softened

2/3 cup granulated sugar

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

cup egg substitute (4 eggs)

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 (2 5/8 ounce) bar finely chopped dark chocolate  (71% cocoa or darker)

tablespoons powdered sugar 


First step, 
Weigh or spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Sift together flour, cocoa, espresso powder, baking powder, and salt. (I don't have a sifter, so I used a wire wisk.).

second step, 
Place butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed 1 minute. Add granulated and brown sugars, beating until well blended (about 5 minutes). Add egg substitute and vanilla, beating until well blended. Fold flour mixture into sugar mixture; fold in chocolate.

Third step, Divide batter evenly among 10 (4-ounce) ramekins; arrange ramekins on a jelly-roll pan. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or up to 2 days. (Longer is better. You can refrigerate longer hand 2 days.

Fourth step, 
Preheat oven to 350° (325° for convection ovens).

and The last step, 
Let ramekins stand at room temperature 10 minutes. Uncover and bake for 21 minutes (18 minutes in a convection oven) or until cakes are puffy and slightly crusty on top. Sprinkle evenly with powdered sugar; serve immediately.

Yummy: Hot Chocolate Fudge cake!

Held last Thursday, June 23, 2011 at Paris fashion week Louis Vuitton’s spring-summer 2012 men’s collection.
What’s in store for us in Louis Vuitton Spring/summer 2012 Men’s collection ?,  The debut collection of Men’s Style Director ” Kim Jones ” with the artistic direction of Marc Jacobs. “At its simplest level, it is about the idea of travel and what it means at this point in time,” Kim Jones says. “After all travel forms the foundation of the Vuitton brand. This is a fundamental part of the lineage and language of Louis Vuitton and is a central component of what it stands for today,” continues Jones. “At the same time, the collection is looking at the idea of a personal journey. It forms the notion of a coming-of-age through exploration and travel.”
The collection is full of Preppy stuff and athletic sports wear also some casuals, personally i adore this collection because of its ” Africa section ” which features  the iconic Damier check, blankets and cool scarves in cashmere and cotton.
A lot of bomber jackets in this collection, well tailored suits , tailored short suit  that are in white, black, camel toned and a checkered red and blue shots which  look like the iconic Damier canvas also you will love their functional and fashionable bags and their innovative line of sandals  and shoes.

Here’s some of my favorite looks in this collection!


au revoir!
