Caramels and Weddings

So, what's with the caramels and the weddings? They're both so sweet! And what is the connection, again? Simple! I love both! I love caramels to indulge in my not-that-many sweet tooth cravings, and I love weddings' food! Lol!

I was excited when my neighbour put up this gazebo lighting for her son's wedding tonight. It was beautiful! They had the lights on for testing last night. It was a garden wedding concept. Simply a fairytale sight!

The tents put up in front of my house and several other neighbours too. A total of 10 houses, maybe.

Ahah...! This morning view at 7.30 am. Simply refreshing. Its also starting to get busy with workers arriving and on with their duties. I know for sure, the electrician worked from last night until at least 5.45 am this morning, when my phone alarm rings.

Its going to be even more beautiful and extravagant tonight on the main event. If I can justify it enough, I will blog about it, or at least put up some pretty pictures here! :)

Ok, now, what's with the caramel? Actually, I just made the most splendid caramel myself yesterday! Haha! One that I actually enjoyed eating, that is!

And as usual, I can only manage to paste a blurred image of the pudding here. Actually its not meant to be sharp, so you don't have to drool over it...hahah!! (As if....)

Well, this happened 10 minutes after it gets out of the steamer. Still pipping hot! Now barely a quarter left in the refrigerator..! (I should get there fast, before it went completely missing..!! Lol!)

It was truly simple and easy and delicious recipe. You should try it!


Sugar - 6 tbsp
Milk - 1 glass
Vanilla essense-1/2 tsp
Sugar -2 tbsp
Make caramel out of 2 tbsp sugar. Dissolve the sugar in a pan until it turns brown, and pour directly into the bottom of the pudding dish. This has to be done quickly as the sugar turns hard very fast.

Caramel pudding:
Beat the egg, 6tbsp sugar and milk with a beater.
Add vanilla essence.
Pour the mixture on top of the caramel and steam for 20 minutes.
Let it cool, refrigerate and serve it cold.
