In life imagination and expectations always turns out different. And some people maybe more artistic, or creative or something that is your own strength.
I was never the artistic person, a bit of creative maybe but I always tried my best. LoL! And remember never to be dishearted when things dont go your way, somehow some stuff are never meant to be! The same goes for friendship, relationship and even kinship. Toxic people just let go, mingle less if you cant. Year is coming to an end, lets set off to a more positive vibes year in 2022! Ok, getting a bit heavy now! 😅
Today I tried making some sponge fingers from scratch as I wan to build my own christmas house. Turns out I didnt have the flair for it so I decided to use it as a base for my dessert!
Since I have some whipped cream and frozen fruits and ta-daaa~~~ Our after dinner dessert is ready! Now chilling in the fridge for us to eat later on! 😋😋 After putting them in a box, looks like a snowglobe to me! Actually its a great gift to make for your friends too!
I tried 2 ways of baking the sponge and as it is too light, the rack on top of paper works better for me! And freshly baked sponge fingers is not so dry as compared to storebought and taste so much better! So here today, sharing my sponge fingers recipe along with my failed house and tree pics! 🙊
