Easy Chocolate Chips Cookies

I was searching for an easy way to make chocolate chips cookies when I stumbled upon this recipe by Stefanie of Kitchen Capers. A lot of good reviews for this recipe & hence, I decided to baked them myself. I baked these cookies for the Hari Raya Qurban. It was a hit.

Last Minute Birthday Cake

A conversation between a mother and her daughter the night before her daughter's birthday.
Daughter: Ibu, for my birthday tomorrow, can I have a cake to celebrate with my tuition classmates?
Mother: I thought you promised no cake? Anyway, where can we find a cake this late? I just came back from work.

Daughter: I know, I've made a promise but I never celebrated with my classmates before. So, can I have a cake?

Mother: Ok, but can I make for you cupcakes instead? It's easier to bake.

Daughter: But I want to cut a cake in front of my classmates, please?

Mother: I'm tired & I've no plans to bake anything at all tonight, darling...

Daughter: Please, Ibu... (Pleading. Reminded me of Puss In Boots in the Shrek movies)

Mother: Oh... Ok.
Then, the mother rushed to check the larder whether she has enough ingredients to bake the cake.
The mother was me & I've to stay late to bake the cake. The next day, I've to wake up around 5 in the morning to decorate the cake. I've to rush coz I've to go to work after that.

The price of the look on my daughter's cake when she first saw her birthday cake... PRICELESS

Here's the Last Minute Birthday Cake.
