|Alhamdulillah, Ramadhan is here...|
In a blink of an eye, the holy month of Ramadhan is here again. Thank you Allah for sustaining our lives to meet this blessed month again. That being said, have you planned your spiritual plan for the month?
My in-laws had a small kenduri (bacaan Yassin dan tahlil) to welcome Ramadhan last weekend. As always, I was in charge of the baking and dessert table styling. I decided to try a rustic theme this time. The best part about the rustic theme is that, nothing has to be completely neat and proper. I could actually get away with just a crumb coat on my cake, flawed tiramisu layers and even jaggedly cut brownies!
|The dessert table by the patio.|
|I used wooden crates to give it that rustic feel.|
|Baked with love.|
|Designed my own chalkboard printables to complement the theme.|
|I also used candles with my gold tarnished candle holder to give it a more rustic feel. To keep with the earthy tones, I also used gold picture frames (instead of my normal white platters) for plating.|
|Filled the two tier rack with cookies, hummingbird brownies and a mini hummingbird cake.|
|Brownies with marshmallow topping. Used my beloved blow torch to melt the marshmallow into that sticky glaze. I also filled the glass jars with chocolate nutella macarons.|
|Congo bars with chocolate and butterscotch chips. The two cakes in the background are chocolate moist cake, and red velvet cake with cream cheese. *drool*|
|Strawberry tarts in the glass platter. More matching printables for the frame and the flower vases.|
|Mini tiramisu with cream cheese!|
The blessed month is upon us. As we dig into our hearts to clean them, I ask you to forgive me for any words spoken that may have hurt you or caused any sort of pain, for any betrayed trusts or for anything worldly that I may owe you, or for anything wrong that I may have done towards you. May Allah grant us all the tawfique to forgive so that insyaAllah after we cross the siraat, our debts to each other will be none and we can enter with peace into the gardens of paradise.
Wishing you and family a Ramadhan Kareem! May Allah accept each and everyone of your good deeds in this beautiful month, and may He enable us to achieve our very best in every way.
