This reminds me of some awesome butter cookies (and cup of tea).
I never knew I have a sweet tooth until I came across some really good bakery brands. It just didn't cross my mind because I concluded sweet stuffs weren't my cup of tea.
The fate between Little Boxes and I was a long story to tell. Okay, not too long either, so I can actually tell. One eventful pre-Chinese New Year shopping spree, I was rather fed up because I noticed I had been buying the same (boring) hampers from the (few) brands for (many) years. I knew buying hampers was not the smartest thing to do - I mean how often you find someone who receives your hamper and really likes every single item in the package? Rarely.
I decided that will be a special year. I searched everywhere online for something that would get into the heart of friends and family members who receive it. And I stumbled upon Little Boxes. Okay, end of story. The rest was history. I took immediate liking to the home baker's concept - everything in the package was useable, edible and very meticulously handmade. I ordered a few hampers and an extra cake for my in-laws. That's love at first taste.
On days when we were stranded at home during MCO, it was her Cranberry Butter Cookies that made my days brighter - the ingredients used were premium, it's too apparently proven from the flavour and richness of the cookies. It's a sinful pleasure, so I ordered and delivered some to my best friends and my all time favourite Doctor Tan 🤣. There's no better gift than sharing good food.
Zyan's birthday fell in April. It was his first birthday (poor boy, no birthday party, MCO-lah!), we wanted to make it memorable (for us). We ordered a cake with fondant design of dinosaurs. Don't ask why dinosaur - it's Zyan's secret favourite. The baker (whom we suspected a perfectionist) went the extra mile to collect some photos of Zyan's favourite toy. So we sent her these which are nowhere near being cute:
We were so satisfied with the final product, it's a cake that made Zyan smiled. After all, it's his smiles that matter.
Okay-lah, mommy failed the product photo miserably this time, so to do just, I stole a photo from Little Boxes' Facebook page. Not only the design looked adorable, the cake itself was actually very delicious - we shared it with other children in our neighbourhood. Everyone liked it so much - chocolatey-rich but not too sweet! This is the perfect cake a cheeky baby like Zyan can ask for.
At times, it's good to keep an open-mind to unexplored aspects in life, because life is like a box of chocolate, you may find what you truly like without you being aware!
