Pastry cream or Creme Patissiere is a creamy Custard like cream or pudding made of Egg Yolks, Milk, Starch & Vanilla. It's usually used to fill Tarts , Eclairs or any other types of desserts .
Doing Pastry cream was a real challenge for me, as I'm very bad in doing things containing Egg yolks or whites that needs heating over the oven ! For example, Doing a Swiss meringue Butter cream Frosting for Cupcakes is so far a dream for me :) As I failed many times in doing it !!! But will Continue trying :)
Anyway this recipe is from an Amazing Book , Called " Die Backfee Zuckersüß" I really love this Book & recommend buying it for anyone who loves baking like me !
I made this recipe with no failure, I'm really proud of myself now & my kids ate this cream & loved it & asked me to do it again ! I was really happy as this a meal full of Protein for them :)

Tilapia is one of my favourite Fish ! I'm always used to eating it deep fried in Oil & Coated with a thin layer of Flour (after marinading it for sometime) , This is how we usually cook Tilapia in Egypt ! And since I'm a very busy mom & I always have no time, So I decided to fry it in Butter with some Salt & Pepper ,without wasting a long time in the marinade . I used a good non-stick pan , as Tilapia is a very fragile fish & choose a nice relatively thick Tilapia cut to use & it was really so delicious, I felt the real fish taste in my mouth , The recipe I used before was perfect, but I liked this way of cooking more as the taste of Fish was not masked by other the flour & frying process .

I made those Cookies for my Daughter's Birthday :) It was a challange for me doing Cookies with Fondant ! That was my first trial & definitely not the last ! I liked a lot how pretty the Cookies looked & I liked the idea of making such colorful & pretty Cookies !
At first I thought that Fondant Cookies were so complicated , but they actually turned to be so easy & you can prepare the Fondant shapes a day ahead of doing your Cookies, just keep it seperated from each other & kepp it in an airtight container !
Here are the tools you will need as a start , they are very simple & cheap tools!
I'll start with the ingredients for the Sugar Cookies :

This is a very nice & easy & delicious Frosting for Cupcakes, My aim doing this Frosting was to decrease the amount of Sugar as much as possible because I don't like the very sugary Frosting !
Thanks to my dear friend Noha who gave me Tips for doing those pretty stars on top of each Cupcake. I was really bad in decorating Cupcakes, So don't lose hope if you make bad Cupcake decoration, all you need is more & more training :)
