Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake

I typically was on a mission of making a bd cake for my husband and this year, when I asked him what kind of cake he'd want , he then promptly said that anything about chocolate would be great which honestly, was not that helpful to me..anyway, this triple chocolate mousse cake was the winner at the end !

As for the outcome, the only weak point of this cake ( in my opinion !) is the middle layer which seemed too dense and not that smooth as I'd like..anyway, I got a lots of favourable comments from people ( at my husband's office ) who had a chance to try a piece of the cake..:)

The recipe could be found here. ( Note : I skipped the cocoa mixture for the middle layer )

Browned Butter Butterscotch Shortbreads

My family's favorite shortbread is maple shortbread and my daughter always asks for it when she feels like eating shortbread. However, I saw this browned butter shortbread on foodgawker and I was tempted by its look which didn't make any effort to convince me to give it a try !

Apple Granola Cupcakes

When I firstly saw this cake posted , I knew for sure that I wouldn't miss giving it a try..and now it's the time!

The original recipe calls for a square baking tin but due to a lack of time , I instead made it into cupcake form  which saved me more than half of baking time, yet I reckon the outcome is absolutely not less delicious than the original !
