chocolate love

Sunday, 13 November 2011 • 10 comments

Another dozen cupcakes and an animation! I'm studying animation and i love to bake so i thought, why not combine the two. It was so much fun! I've done a bit of stop-motion animation before but never with food. It was my digital camera, a pack of maltesers milk chocolate and i this sunday. So i washed my hands and got right into it. I was afraid it will break into bits but luckily i was able to cut the maltesers easily into two neat halves with a knife. After that, i shaved the bottoms of the halves so they could stand then started animating!  There's a piano sitting in the middle of my school and earlier this week a friend of mine, Amber Gao played a piece that was perfect for this project. She had no idea i was recording it but she was nice enough to let me use it when i asked her. Enjoy






chocolate cupcakes


Almost everyone loves chocolate. Why? What about chocolate makes people crave it so much? I'm really not a huge fan of chocolate(yes i know, i must be crazy) but i really enjoyed baking these chocolate cupcakes. Once again the recipe was very easy and the ingredients were flour, sugar, butter, an egg...and cocoa powder. The book recommended green & blacks cocoa powder so i made sure i got that. Mixed it all like the book said i should and put it in the oven. The kitchen smelt great as they baked and there was bowl licking. While they baked, i made the frosting and sniffed some icing sugar. Not intentionally of course, it just flew everywhere while i was mixing it and the air was full of it.
