Second Fondant Cake

Photo by Eunice Sepulveda

Past Sunday I decided to do my second fondant cake on Sunday for my roommate. Even though that her birthday is like 1 month. I wanted her to celebrate her birthday because I don’t know if I am going to see her.

The theme as you can see is of the “Lilo and Stitch” movie.Either way I decided to do my moms “Puerto Rican” cake recipe that consist of:

  1. 2 cups of cake flour
  2. 2 sticks of butter
  3. 1 cup of white sugar
  4. 6 egg yolk’s
  5. 1 cup of whites
  6. 1 tbs of brandy
  7. 1tbs of vanilla

So you are going to whisk the butter with the sugar and the egg till the sugar dissolves. Same as pour in the vanilla and the tbs of brandy, later put in the flour.

In another bowl whisk in the whites till they have the consistency of almost meringue then fold it to the batter. After you do that bake it to 350 degrees in your oven.

So for this cake you need to do a simple syrup that is

  1. 2 cups ofd water
  2. 1 cup of sugar
  3. and 1 cup of brandy

You have to let it simmer till the alcohol evaporates, so thats practically it. For the frosting I use shortening frosting. Which is

  1. 1 cup of shortening
  2. 3 cups of confectioners sugar
  3. 1 tbs of vanilla

And to help it to make it a little more manageable add some water not a lot cuz you don’t want it super liquid.

This recipe is the one that she has been using since my childhood. Hopefully you like it follow me through my instagram and see you in the next blog.

Failed Food internet test

Photo by Eunice Sepulveda

When I was in home a couple of months ago my wanted me to do sliders for my family. So what I decided to do was to do one of this internet food test videos that they pop up on your Facebook or Instagram.

I was soooo confident about it. Because I have seen this type of videos a couple of times.

So I chopped up the things I was going to put in the meat and every thing… And I did not went as expected. In the video the burger looked so juicy and beautiful…. And my did not ended beautiful and definitive not beautiful. This was really a flop.

Cuz I really hoped that it was going to end up like the video and really didn’t knew what went wrong about it. Something you guys need to know is that I really like to cook. And I think that I wouldn’t do this type of things again like to get it out of the way.

In conclusion don’t believe everything that they do on the internet and even more when are things to get out of the way. Even though that this is great when you have guest at your house and your in a rush. You risk that the meat gets pretty dry when you are cooking it same as if you like that sear on your burger you don’t get it hear.


Chef

Chef(2014) was directed, written and acted Jon Favreau. The people that acted in this movie are: Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Sofia Vergara, Emjay Anthony, John Lugaziamo and others more.

This movie has a rating of 7.3/10 on IMDb, 87% on rotten tomatoes and 68% on metracritc.

This movie tells about a chef that quits his job and buys a food truck to prove his creativity.

I know that is movie is from a couple of years ago. But I had to write of it this is the ultimate foodporn movie. Just because it makes you hungry and connects the viewer with it. For example my favorite part is where they are making “Cubanos” and mean while you where watching it you felt that your mouth water.

Same you feel a connection even though they were A lists actors. I think that this was one of Sofia’s best performance. Because they didn’t put Sofia a crazy latina like they always do. As the one that acts Emjay the kid that acts like Jon Favreau son acted amazing. You felt that the connection between them was real.

This movie actually inspires you to cook and the thing is that this movie is so different than the others. First of all is not a cheesy romantic comedy about people cooking and falling in love. Is a comedy and drama separating its from the other movies.

I really recommend this movie to any foodie out there my rating is a 10/10.

English Rose: Rincon

And this is another appreciation post for Rincon. Today we are going to be talking about restaurant that serves brunch called “The English Rose”.

“The English Rose” is a bed and breakfast located in Rincon, Puerto Rico.

Something very important for you to know that theres two ways to get to the restaurant. One is literally one way road. Like you can’t barely pass an suv through it and the other way fits two cars.

The moral of the story is that never let the GPS get the power of taking the lead on road trips folks, in this particular case ask a local if you rant up for a scary adventure.

Even though that arriving there is super stressful the view up there is amazing same as the food.

The style of food is pretty American. They serve French toasts, Bloody Marys, Ginger with lemonade, Waffles, ect. Something pretty different that what you can find in a local restaurant excluding the restaurant chains.

This is some of the things that we order in the restaurant. Something that I can say is that all the food that was served to us was felt that it was homemade, from the bread, to the sausage to the ginger lemonade.

Making you kind of wanting to you come again after that difficult trip to get down there. Because is actually shocking that they restaurant is up there and that is always full.

Something that you have to know is that to eat there you need to reserve your space. Because they aren’t open all day same as they open for 4 days from Thursday to Sunday and you have to show up 10 minutes before the time of your reservation.

I give this restaurant a 7/10. Even though that this restaurant is great… I think that they should get a trolley just because the one way road is pretty dangerous.

About me

Hello, My name is Eunice and I manage this blog about my food adventures. I think that soon I will add some of the things I had cooked in the future in this blog.

I am from the little island called Puerto Rico 🇵🇷. I am a college student from the University Sagrado Corazon, located in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I am studying digital production and thats why almost all the pictures in the blog are taken by me.

Either way… this blog surged from a class that I had called “informatica” that would be computing.

The name came from my foodie insta called “Fat Unicorn”. Hopefully I could keep posting as much as I can after the class ends and that I could bring different content to you guys.

Peace ✌️, Eunice

Some history about it is that the huge Dome was an old nuclear power plant of boiling water. Where it was constructed during 1960 and they stopped operations in 1968 due that the locals on that area started to have Cancer same as they say that still the area has a lot of radiation, currently is a museum.

This place is beautiful if you enjoy looking the surfers and looking at the sea. I recommend you to visit this place and take some surfing clases.
