weekend surprise

i received a last minute invitation to go and watch a football game and so i accepted.
prior to watching the game we decided to grab a bite to eat

naga naga was our destination.
cute decor, big fish tank :)

karen and i on our way to the rose bowl

view from out seats. no zoom no nothing. it was pretty nice.

afterwards, we decided to go try out this cupcake store: DOTS CUPCAKES

cute little store....managed to sneak in a picture because getting caught haha

hazelnut cupcake, red velvet cupcake.

it play dough - ____ -
generally i judge cupcake places by their red velvet...
but my goodness i couldnt even finish it.
i ate the top + the frosting and left the bottom.
not good not good.
the hazelnut wasnt very hazelnutty in flavor and it was just bland.
and the frosting was way too sweet.
a bit disappointed. dont think i'll try it again...

cream puffs

wow its been over a month since i've last updated my blog :(
school has been occupying a lot of my time...allowing me to not bake as often as i want to.

a close up picture of some cream puffs i baked last month.

last month, my friends and i went to Jason Mraz concert in LA and before that, we went to this little cafe called " the little door cafe"

super cute place. fairly little and cozy.
we decided to get a couple desserts and head over to the concert....

here are the macaroons.
they were pretty good.
i will try and bake some macaroons this month.
