My Carrot Cup Cakes

One weekend, I decided to bake some carrot cakes for hubby and kids.  It's one special day that we're complete at home, so I just thought that having some special snack served on the table is a must.  Besides, I'm in the mood to bake that day!

Well, it's been a while that we ceased to get cup cake orders from our customers.  Since hubby arrived home last April 23, we've been very busy with our home projects and we're practically going to our other house that's under repair and improvement for almost a month so attending to our cup cake business would be tough under this situation.

However, for the love of my family, I took a day off from my busy schedule to bake some carrot cup cakes.  hubby has been complaining that he didn't had that chance to taste yet our home made cup cakes but instead of baking our signature chocolate moist cup cakes, I've chosen to bake carrot cup cakes para healthy!   

My son Edmar, who was also in the mood that day volunteered to make some sugar icing which he used to decorate the cup cakes.  I wanted to put some cheese cream for toppings but I wasn't able to get it from the super market so I just made use of what we have at home.

I baked 24 pcs of carrot cup cakes and it lasted until the following day.  The presence of a house help who did the laundry and ironing also contribute to the fast consumption of my baked goodies. lol

It was one of those sweet moments that I get to do what inspire me most....baking!!

Condo Unit or House and Lot?

During our recent visit to Baguio, we were billeted in a hotel which is actually situated inside a commercial building.  Aside from the hotel, you can also find some condo units.  I think the owner of the hotel and condos is only one. There is an office beside the hotel lobby where you could inquire about owning condo units.

I wish we have one condo unit in Baguio where we could stay for vacations.  Oh well, that's a big dream! Kidding aside, I was actually thinking if it's better to own a condo unit than a single detached residential house.  We've actually invested on 3 properties but owning a condo never crossed my mind.  I am actually curious if owning condo unit would be far better than a residential house and lot.  Some friends said it's more practical as condominium is more secured and comes with a complete package.  Most have swimming pools, park, club houses, etc but the only downside is that you have to pay monthly dues.  Aside from that, there is no opportunity for expansion as you just practically own one fixed space   Also, if you want to have your own garden, it's not quite possible as you don't actually own a yard.

However, living in a condo also have it's own advantages.  I guess a condominium unit is easier to manage and maintain and you can easily go on an out of town or out of the country vacation without worrying much on who would look after your home as the entire building is secured and well guarded.  Because of these points, I am also tempted to own a condo, if given the opportunity and resources, of course.

For most company workers, owning a condo is much easier than building their own homes as there are so many real estate developers who are selling out condo units at a much affordable price with greater options and easy payment schemes.  I am not sure though for miami condos for sale.   

As a property owner myself, I also see the advantages of having single detached houses as we could do what we want with the property.  Having projects for improvements each year also make us inspired and fulfilled.  Anyway, whether you want to own a house or a condo, what is important is we know our goals and we know exactly what we want so there will be no regrets in the end.  After all, owning our own home sweet home is always everyone's dream.
