zumba class photo.can you guess which is me?

Saturday, December 06, 2014

here is a photo taken last night at the zumba class.zakariya is non the photo as he is the one who took the photo.our zumba teacher posted it on his facebook .here is the link.can you guess which one is me.easy isnīt it.




as you all know i hate havimg my photo took.so putting this out here took some guts but thought for my friends that make excuses not to exercise if i can do it with all my health problems so can you.also if you havenīīt tried group exercise you should give it a go as you are missing out on a bunch of fun if you donīīt.

thanks once again for taking the time to read this blog and a double thanks if you reply.have a great weekend.make it count.take care and keep smiling.

    I love this photo! I just woke-up and you made me smile first thing. I can definitely identify you in the crowd. Woman, you have guts. I can see how being a part of this class, if you give it a chance (like you clearly did), might be a lot of fun. I am so glad you took the risk to join in the first place and I love that you are having a blast participating. You must feel very welcome there, which is so nice to hear. I am happy you decided to give yourself this experience, and I am definitely inspired. Thank-you for posting this amazing photo!

Hugs,

D.

aymans burger birthday cake(photos.)

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

today my son ayman is 6 years old today.for his birthday cake in pre school he wanted a burger cake.he has imagination it just means i had to put my thinking cap on on how i would make it,lol.here is the result of my thinking cap
first i made a marzipan/fondant out of ground hazelnut and almonds,powdered sugar and rose water.that is to make the whole wheat burger bun(well had to try and support my healthy lifestyle with the wholewheat bun,lol)



cooked two sponge cakes.one thicker a normal sponge which i cut in half for the buns and a thinner one out of chocolate for the burger. so i covered the bottom bun with the fondant first



then i made a vinilla custard for the relish



then the chocholate cake for the burger



then using theese gelatine free jellies as tomatoe and cucumber slices(told you i was trying to make a healthy one,lol)



placed them on the outside edge of the cake along with some cheese(marzipan)



then last but not least the other fondant covered cake for the top of the burger then i sprinkled seasam seeds on top.her is the finished cake.first from the top then from the side.





well when ayman got up this morning he wanted to open his presents before school as he went to give zakariya a kiss on his cheek as thank you,zakariya didnīt want one so they had a little shuffle between them.ayman still trying to kiss zakariya pushing him away and before we knew it the cake container with cake was knocked on the floor.managed to save the cake as best as i could and luckily was in the container so he ended up taking an lopsided cake with the relish running down the one side. so was my morning.just got back from lymph drainage and physio theraphy.at 12.00 i have a teachers meeting with zakariyas teacher.so have to go and do abit of house work.have a great day today and if you are on the blc challenge hope you have a good weigh in.thanks you for taking the time to read and reply to this blog.take care and keep smiling
