Hello there again!

First off, happy new year! Hope you all had a wonderful 2014, and looking forward to a great 2015. I haven't gotten a chance to post anything here for quite a while, got quite busy with work, school, and guess what- baking! What started off as a hobby to kill time when I didn't have a job has now led to me making some great looking cakes (if I do say so myself :P)! But let's be honest here, as much fun as mixing up some batter and smelling it being baked in the oven is, there is much more work that goes into it, especially when it comes to decorating cakes.

I realized that there is only so much dessert my husband and I can have (what I really mean is- only so much we SHOULD have), but I wasn't ready to stop baking or tone it down. If anything, I wanted to explore it even more! Also adding to that, I discovered that I am not as passionate about writing assembly manuals for aircraft production at Bombardier as I thought I would be. Hence, I have now decided to launch my own in-home Filza's Cakery. Do drop by and say hello on the Facebook page!

The whole cake world is new to me still, but it has been a great journey so far and I have been loving it (not the expenses though, they're a killer!) I took the first two Wilton classes at my local Michaels last year while I was job hunting after graduation, and even though I hardly use my buttercream and royal icing piping skills that I learned there because I like the fondant and ganache route more, those classes along with the CakeCentral community opened a whole new world for me to explore!

School and work have been taking a lot of time lately, but with the winter break here, I am going to try putting a little life back into this blog by sharing a few recipes here. Keep a look out for them over the next few weeks!

For now, here's a picture of these mouth-watering MnM and white chocolate chip cookies I made last month for my niece.
