What could have been a better combination for a blog title!? OK so this has been a long time coming and I'm so so so x 100 sorry that I'm so slow (as always) with the blogging. BUT as promised, here are my easy recipies that I found to making this yummy (super duper easy) chocolate cake and these refreshingly healthy (healthy? what!?) popsicle sticks! SO GOOD.

Basically got the recipie from one of my favourite blog reads here. Looks A LOT better but hey, a girl can try right? I replaced the strawberry cake with chocolate cause the birthday boy I was cooking for turned out to be a chocolate on chocolate kind of guy (although I personally would have gone with the strawberry, nomnomnom!)

As stated on her page, its more of a 'how-to' than a recipe but all in all its definitely worth making! Chocolate cake, chocolate icing covered in gobsmakingly good chocolate treats. I used whoppers just because I passed Candy Emporium and realised that they actually had them in Singapore but it works with maltesers (and could potentially beat the whoppers) so, either way.

Although I love baking from scratch, the box cake mix idea was really appealing as it saved a lot of time and the pre-made frosting is recommended as the whoppers stuck a lot better to it! (Therefore you can use whatever cake recipe and buttercream you want to!).


- Bake the cake and let it cool
- Place cake on a platter and ice the cake

-Before the icing sets start a row of Whoppers/Maltesers around the bottom of the cake (resting each one on top of the plate but lightly pressed into the sides of the cake). Continue around the bottom and then add another row above the first and keep going until the sides of the cake are completely coated in Whoppers/Maltesers.
-Once covered, continue on the top until the whole cake is covered. I did mine in a circular motion working towards the middle.

AND TADAAAAAAA.. now wasn't that easy? This blog is making me really hungry, I'm so glad I have a dessert buffet date in a sec (but thats for another post..).

And now to get a little more fruity..

Berry Yogurt Popsicles. The best part? Their actually healthy! WOOHOO! (Over the moon with my new health kick). I got the recipe from this amazing website that not only provides yummy healthier versions of your favourite meals (and your soon to be favourites..), it also gives you the calorie counter and nutritional information so you don't have to guess around (especially if maths isn't your forte). You can view it here.

Once again I am working on presentation but pretty popsicle molds are hard to find! I got mine from Shermay's Cooking School located at Chip Bee Gardens (Holland Village).


For the purple:
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1/2 cup blackberies
- 6 oz fat free blueberry yogurt
- 1 cup crushed ice 

For the white:
- 14 oz fat free vanilla yogurt
- 2 tbsp agave or sugar
 - 1 cup crushed ice

For the pink:
- 3/4 cup raspberries
- 3/4 cup strawberries
- 6 oz fat free strawberry yogurt
- 1 cup crushed ice 

- Blend each colour smoothie separately in a blender and set aside
- Pour the pink smoothie mix into the popsicle molds 1/4 of the way and then put it in the freezer for 30 minutes. Remove from the freezer AND THEN insert the popsicle stick, and freeze again for one hour.

- Add the white smoothie mix into each popsicle mold 1/3 more of the way (so that 2/3s of the mold is full) and freeze again for another hour.
- Add the purple smoothie mix and fill it up to the top of the mold and freeze until ready to eat!
This recipe makes 16 popsicles and is 51 calories each!

WOOHOO! My first little recipe thing done! Not sure if it was at all that interesting but I hope you enjoy and if you have a free afternoon, definitely give them a go because they were delicious.
