Mother's Day at Bizu Patisserie

I have written back then that my mom and I didn't really have a close relationship while I was growing up, though of course we do love each other, it's just that I was closer to my dad back then. When my dad died five years ago, it opened the doors for mom and I and in the last 5 years we have been really close - even treating each other as great friends. I can tell her about many things - including love life, and even though it took a while for us to be like this, I am very thankful that I have her as my mom. She truly is the best. Well, admit it or not, our mothers truly are the best woman in our lives.

My Mom

This year is going to be really special because our family will be celebrating two occasions at the same date - Mother's Day and my Birthday. This afternoon, my sister came home with a yummy gift from Bizu Patisserie - the Paris Brest Cake. My mom was surely surprised about it because this is the first time she got to see a cake like this, and she was so happy because it's not chocolate (she is not so fond of chocolate cakes and ice cream though she eats it).

Paris Brest Cake by Bizu Patisserie

Wikipedia defines Paris Brest as, "The pastry was created in 1891 to commemorate the Paris–Brest–Paris bicycle race. Its circular shape is representative of a wheel. It became popular with riders on the Paris-Brest cycle race, partly because of its energy-giving high calorific value, and is now found in pâtisseries all over France."
Rose Petal - Up Close Raspberry - Up Close

Bizu Patisserie's Paris Brest cake is made of Almond Pâte à Choux pastry filled with layers of white chocolate, rose cream (yes, rose the flower), lychee segments, and fresh raspberries. The pastry is light yet crispy - it reminds me of the profiteroles I ate not too long ago... and the filling was something new for all of us.

This cake is somewhat like my mom - it's simple yet very pretty, light but filled with lots of goodness. :) Bizu Patisserie's Paris Brest cake is really a great gift we could give our moms - and grandmothers, aunts...
This weekend - 12 and 13 of May 2012 - get a chance to win any of the goodies posted above when you buy the Paris Brest cake or any of their grande cakes. Well, the cake itself is already an awesome gift, receiving any of the items will surely make your gift more special.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
