Hello fellas, how's it going?? Its Sunday March 21st...I know some of you will just think about the upcoming working week! But, not for me, because I'm going to fully utilize my last day of the weekends here!! Recently, the Cookie Monster has been baking alot for her houssies!! One good reason that she gave was...Sweet Cravings!! Hmm, yea, it is such a great excuse for that huh!! So do I, I'm craving for sweet stuffs like desserts so BADLY!! I did hesitate if my current oven functions well...and shortage of baking utensils could be another worst nightmare that I've ever faced before~ Well yea, ignore it and let's do it!!

Fortunate enough to have this dear buddy to help me out with all the cutting works...
