Rose bavarois

I enjoy making sweets lately. These are rose flavors bavarois with rose water, rose oil and rose syrup. Mmm maybe I should put less rose flavors so it won't feel that much like perfume :-)

Arome from France

These are Arome I just ordered from France. I would love to try and make macarons with them. I'm still waiting for the Colors to come from Japan to make them!

Macaron - green tea -

At last, I could make macarons after 4 more or less failed trials. I used Italian merengue this time as people say that its much easier to make them than when using French merengue. It's actually true... I tried 3 times to make them with French ones and it failed...
I still don't want to give up trying with the French style though. Anyway it's very exciting to see them rise and have a 'pied' (the fluffy crown) in the oven!

Madeleine - nonstick pan -

Just received my Madeleine molds from Japan! Immediately, I tried them at once to make madeleines.Tiny madeleines, they are so cute. This mold is very efficient, the cakes come off perfectly without putting butter. I am very satisfied with this :)

Melon Pan Bread

Recently, I'm absorbed in making bread or sweets... I tried several recipes to make this japanese bread which is called "Melon Pan" and I finally found my favorite. It's a two-layered bread dough and biscuit-like inside. I should have added more cookie's dough to cover the bread parts... Next time!
Now I'm struggling with making Macaron :(

Double waist pants - 6Y -

Children grow up so quickly! I was preparing winter clothes and recognized that all trousers from last year are already too short! I need to make some for my son who is now 6years old.
6y is just getting to a big boy and I think these pants must still be convenient at this age. The rib belt is stitched inside the jeans here. So when it's worn, the rib belt hides in their T-shirts. So it looks just like a cool pair of jeans but it's so easy to wear!!

As usual I stick to a pattern design that's slim line to be cool:)

Double waist pants for boys and girls!

Now I'm making these trousers pattern. I found the "double waist pants" are convenient for young kids. The boy who wears is 5y old.
These pants are great for both boys and girls, and they allow heaps of variations as you can change the waist rib parts as you like.
