I still feel the same until now. 🙂

The last day of 2011 for me was craaaazy! I was so busy that I even forgot to eat. Yikes! Fun and worth it are the words that can perfectly describe how my day went before welcoming 2012.
A silly (but awesome) idea hit me while grocery shopping with my family – to assemble a chocolate tower!
We used gold chocolates to resemble the tradition of “luck” in welcoming a new year! 🙂
Here are the chocolates that we used:
Ferrero Rocher for the top.
Violet Kisses: Dark Chocolate
Gold Kisses: Almonds
Gold and Violet was the color motif of our tower! 🙂
Reeses’s and Hershey’s Nuggets
Gold Coins from Aji Ichiban and Goya
All of these are chocolates!! 🙂
My sissy helped me in assembling this tower! Took us an hour and a half to finish it!! 🙂
I originally planned to use my gold cupcake tower, but my Mom gave it to her friend so I had to improvise. I used baking pans and the cardboard from the tissue rolls.
My sister painted it with gold spray paint to make it look presentable :))
The outcome really made us happy!
Now we just need someone to help us finish all the chocolates! lol
Proud of our masterpiece.
Ordered Queso de Bola w/ Fiesta Ham from Merry Moo!! It was tooo good!!!
The first thing that I did when I woke up that morning was to bake!! I really wanted to do it the day before but my family and I went out so I had to cancel my baking plans.
Made 2rounds and 16 mini cheesecakes! Whew. My sister helped me by shaping the mangoes into balls and in designing the minis 🙂
So happy with the outcome of my cheesecake!! 🙂
I also cooked paella for our entire family.
White Chocolate fondue <3
Just like when we were younger, my sister and I decided to wear matching outfits.
We welcome every New Year with a bang! Literally. Super loud firecrackers and beautiful fireworks!
Nothing can ever beat spending the holidays with loved ones.I know for sure that 2012 will be amazing and life changing! I loved 2011, it was way more than I hoped for.
Happy 2012 everyone! 🙂
Lovin’ life each day,
