Clutches for Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Meshka Design clutches were a part of the Homecoming Event at Howard University in Washington, DC for the great Sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Inc. The Sorority was founded  in 1908 on Howard's campus. AKA is the first Greek-lettered sorority established and incorporated by African-American college women.
The Sorority's colors are pink and green and pearls are their symbol. Therefore, I made them custom pink and white foldover clutches with inside pearl floral lining that incorporated both pink and green colors.

Easy Chocolate Fondant Recipe

Thursday, November 14, 2013

This chocolate fondant cake has a secret: it's gooey center is guaranteed!
Using a simple trick I learned from What Katie Ate I've made these yummy desserts.

Ingredients (for 6 portions)
140gms softened butter
250gms caster sugar
2 eggs
300gms (2 cups) plain/pastry flour
60gms cocoa
250ml milk
1 small tub of Nutella
15ml orange liqueur (for example Cointreau)
5ml baking powder

Preheat the oven to 170C. Beat the butter and sugar until pale and creamy, add the eggs. Beat to combine. Sift over dry ingredients and mix to combine. Stir in milk and liqueur.

Lightly butter 6 ramekins. Spoon one large tbsp of batter into each of the ramekins, add a tbsp of Nutella to the center of each and spoon over the rest of the batter.

Bake for approx. 12-15 minutes.

Serve warm.
