I finished Wilton Course 1 Cake Decorating. This is the first cake I  decorated in the class. I learned how to make snails, flowers . I learned a bit on how to write words. I learned how to hold the piping bag and how to fill the piping bag.

<![CDATA[Tiganites -Greek Pancakes]]>Tue, 27 May 2014 00:26:43 GMThttp://theosfoodblog.weebly.com/blog/tiganites-greek-pancakes
ingredients:
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1
cup milk
3 eggs
A little salt
4 tablespoons of sugar
A little orange  zest ( you have to grate it)

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Cook each pancake for about a few minutes on each side. You know they are done when they start having little holes in them and they are light brown. Take them out of the pan and put them on a plate. Drizzle honey and cinnamon on them. Then, EAT!!!


These are Tiganites, Greek pancakes from Greece. They are different because you have orange zest and four tablespoons of sugar inside. You also put honey and cinammon on top instead of maple syrup. When I was in Greece I was taught to make them by my aunt Evangelio.

<![CDATA[Angel Food Cupcakes.]]>Tue, 06 May 2014 01:10:35 GMThttp://theosfoodblog.weebly.com/blog/angel-food-cupcakes

This is called Angel Food Cake. One day I made this cupcake. It was really good. We all liked it….except me. But you might like it and my mom, dad and brother really liked it.  I didn't like it because it had cream of tarter and I don't like cream of tarter. 


This is from Small, Sweet, and Italian by Maria Bruscino Sanchez (
http://www.amazon.com/Small-Sweet-Italian-Treats-Marias-ebook/dp/B00CQYBA6G)


Here are the ingredients:
1/2 cake flour
pinch of salt
3/4 cup sugar
5 egg whites, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
Seasonal fruit (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine flour, salt and 1/2 cup of sugar and set aside. 
Using a wire attachment, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar on high speed until soy peaks form. With the mixer running, add the remaining 1/4 cup sugar and beat until Stiff. 
Gently fold the flour mixture into the egg whites. 
Fil the cupcake pans with 3/4 full with batter. The angle food cakes will grow so don't over fill. 
Bakes cupcakes for 15-20 minutes. Remove from over, let cook, serve with fruit or homemade frosting. Decorate and enjoy.

<![CDATA[5 minute cake- Don't judge a cake by its cover]]>Sun, 04 May 2014 21:27:02 GMThttp://theosfoodblog.weebly.com/blog/5-minute-cake-dont-judge-a-cake-by-its-cover
I like this cake because it is so good we ate the whole cake in a day. It is also very easy to make. If you are a kid, you might need help boiling the milk and putting the butter in. You might also need help putting the cake into the oven.

I found this recipe on

Five Minute Cake

Unsalted Butter – 100gm
*Powdered sugar – 2 cups
Eggs – 4
*Plain flour (Maida) – 2 cups
Baking powder – 2 teaspoon
Vanilla essence – ½ teaspoon

Instructions

Heat the milk. When it starts boiling add butter to it & let it melt completely. Separate the yolk & white of the eggs. Beat egg white with powdered sugar until it forms a soft peak. Add egg yolks & beat well. Mix the flour & baking powder & add this to the egg mixture. Beat well. Add milk & butter mixture & vanilla essence to the cake mix & Mix well.Pour the batter into a buttered baking dish. Bake at 180 degree for 20 – 30 minutes.


*I made some changedsbecause my mom made me. Instead of 2 cups powdered sugar, I did 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and 1/2 cup stevia. I also used 1  1/2 cups flour and 1/2 flaxseed. I cut up chocolate I got from an Easter Party and put it in there. My dad thinks there should be more chocolate. But is is your decision what else you want to put in it.
