Baking & cooking with an enthusiastic amateur
Despite running a food blog, I’m still not very connected within the foodie community, local, online, or otherwise. This month I’ve been taking some baby steps to fix that, such as participating in a local food swap, and by signing up for the Foodie Penpal Program!
My penpal, Tawny, sent me an awesome box of goodies! The coconut bun is missing from these pictures, as it was the first thing I ate: Absolutely delicious! I love coconut and baked goods, so this was just perfect!
Also included were some cute little packages of gum, which you can see to the left of the candies. Behind them is a small pineapple cream cake; this was really tasty too! Next to it was a red bean filled cake. I had never tried a red bean filled pastry before, so I’m really glad I got the opportunity. I think it’s a bit of an acquired taste, but I can understand why some people like it!
Thank you, Tawny, for being a great foodie penpal! 🙂
