Hohoho Merry Christmas

School Holiday (in Singapore) and Christmas is at the corner, want to have some bonding with your child? You can do some Christmas decoration by re-using toilet paper roll and Felt. You don't need to break your bank to do that. This is a no sewing craft.
You need :
- toilet paper roll
- felt, Red, green and white, or any colour which you like
- a pair of scissors
- a pen knife
- a hot glue gun
- measurement tape

1. Cut a line in the middle of the paper roll, dividing it into two. (size of the segments do not matter).
2. Using a measurement tape, measure the circumference  and the length of the paper roll

3. Cut the felt according to the measurements, giving/adding an allowance of 0.1 inch at each side for the gluing (which will be done later)
4. For the Santa's Belt, cut a strip of felt 3/8 inches wide, and as for the length, the size of you previously measured circumference.
5. Using a hot glue gun, help your child to glue the red felt to the paper roll segment, then glue the green belt and the white colour buckle to the roll. (Instruction on how to cut the buckle are shown in the above picture)

Here is a picture of how the final product should look like.
Merry Christmas all. Ho Ho Ho

It is also said that drinking beetroot juice increases blood flow to the brain in older people, which may be able to fight the progression of dementia. Beetroot has a sweet and earthy taste , that's why it's so difficult to persuade my family member to eat it, but by blending it with apple and carrots, It taste yummy.

Yield 2 cups
400 G beetroot, skinned
4 apples
2 carrots

Method :
1. Wash all the fruits, cut into chunk

Drink Moderately.

notes : Side efefcts of eating  too much beetroot

- It can turn urine pink , which can be mistaken for blood in urine
- If you get kidney stone because of too much calcium, you may be advised to cut down on oxalates in your diet. Beetroot is just one food which contains oxalates, which prevent calcium from being absorbed by your body allowing it to build up as stones in the kidney.

Preheat oven to 350°F. 170 C

1. Blend the beetroot and 100ml of water together. Put the puree in a strainer and sieve out the liquid. Pour the liquid into a small pan and boil over a small fire, until it thickens and evaporates to about a tablespoon.
2. Sift together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda, cocoa, and salt into a medium bowl).

3. Beat liquid ingredients in  a large bowl with an electric mixer until well combined, check the colour, is it red enough for your taste?(Note: If the colour of the liquid is not a deep enough red for your tastes, add red food colouring until satisfied.) .

4. Add dry ingredients and beat until smooth, about 2 minutes.

5. pour into a  16 X 12 inch Bake cakes, rotating halfway through, until a toothpick inserted in the center of each cake comes out clean, 8-10 minutes. Let cakes cool 5 minutes, invert  onto a cooling rack. Let cakes cool completely.divide the cake into 4 equal parts (8 X 6-inch each

You may also set remaining layer on top level, and sides. 

**Tip: after leveling cake, turn it upside down to reduce numbers of crumbs. I also did a crumb coat on the outside, let it set for ten minutes, then finished with remaining frosting.

7. Chill for 2 hours to set frosting.

8. to have a perfect cut, slice the cold cake with a sharp straight-edge knife. Before making that first slice, warm the knife under hot running water and wipe it dry.After cutting each slice and before making the next one, wipe the knife clean with a warm wet towel, this will make every slice clean and picture perfect.
