Happy Teacher's Day 2014

Ordered a batch of honey for Baby Kwok #1's teachers in school as their Teacher's day gift. However, got a shock at how mini they were so Prince Charming suggested baking something to go along with the honey. Had a big bag of Granola sitting in the fridge so I thought, maybe a Granola fruit muffins but ended up, I forgotten to add in the granolas! 

Been getting really forgetful nowadays. Anyway, the muffins were also Baby Kwok #1's breakfast as well as Prince Charming. Both gave their thumbs up for the muffins! I ate one and was also surprised at how flavourful these muffins were. The best thing that I ever heard from the Prince Charming "Hey, they looked so cafe styled and they really taste so good. Like those we get in Starbucks or angmoh bakery!" 

On a side note, I should have been more generous with the crumble toppings. They were so so so good and goes so so so well with the muffins!

Look at those mini honey! 

Love these cupcake liners and toppers that I got from one of the online shop :)

Baby Kwok#1 loves those cubed size plums!
