barnyard animals cake

made this barnyard animals themed cake for lil boy’s first birthday.

baked a moist vanilla cake (usually it’s moist chocolate cake, but a moist vanilla cake is quite interesting).Β  as usual, i frosted the cake with swiss meringue buttercream. decorations were edible images, and some crushed cookies, and topped off with a nice cake topper.

Baby boy was excited to see his cake and was eager to smash the cake, but he got a “hey!” from dad, and thought he was not supposed to touch the cake, and we missed the opportunity of having him smash his first birthday cake *sigh*. but no worries, we all had fun, and they’ll always be opportunities to smash and dig into a cake ay baby πŸ˜‰

Hantaran flower cake

After taking a long break from cake decorating, I sure prefer to do a floral cake with just rosette swirls instead of roses and other flowers πŸ˜…πŸ˜

But whenever you start baking for orders you have to adhere to user requests. So, here is my flower cake for hantaran. I’m not proud but quite contented by how it turned out 😁😁

Most important part is the customer was happy, therefore I am happy..wait..happier πŸ˜‚

Theme is turquoise and soft pink. The colour turned out very nice (really!), but the picture doesn’t do much justiceΒ πŸ˜….

Eid ul Adha

It’s our first time spending Eid here in Bandar Putra. I planned to bake something to share with the neighborhood. At first it was red velvet, then the trending fruit pastry cake, but end up baking a classic ol marble cake instead πŸ˜…

Baked two of em, one to share, one for ourselves. Next bake on the list, is definitely the fruit pastry cake, it looks so inviting 😍 will post it soon, I hope πŸ˜†

Luqmaan turns 8

we always start our new year with my 2nd child’s birthday. Eversince he entered school, we always prepare 2 cakes; one for celebration at home, the other to bring to school, celebrating with his classmates.

This year, for the home/family version, the cake was very simple as my mother invited us all to an adhoc retreat over the weekend. Since this family get together was only a few days from his birthday, I decided why not celebrate it then.

Baking his cake with only ingredients available in the kitchen (mind you I am not actively baking now), I managed to whip up a red velvet cake, just half a batter. A single layer cake with runny cheesy topping (cheese leleh as they called it locally). I usually coat and fill my red velvet with cream cheese frosting, but this time I just had to try this ever famous “cheese leleh” by homebakers everywhere.

So here we have it, a single layer red velvet cake topped with runny cheese topping. Guess what, it blends beautifully. The best part is it’s easy to make, and of course delicious to eat.

we celebrated his birthday during the bbq we had by the beach. It was a fun and memorable family moment indeed. Great food, great company, perfect!

Next up was the cake he was going to bring to school. Loving the runny cheese topping so much, I just had to make it again. So, I baked a single layer chocolate cake and topped it with the runny cheese topping. Chill the cake for a few hours, and put the edible image on.

Yes, the edible image gets all wrinkly later on because I did not spread melted white chocolate beforehand, but I figure it’s easier for the kids to cut and eat later on. Besides, the picture is not ruined, just soft and soggy looking. What’s important is the cake tasted great and the children loved it.

Baking again ~ Dark Choc Brownies

With smarties! Haha..

I have the dark Choc with me for ages now (a month I think), and finally today after almost a week eyeing on a recipe on YouTube (video by Jenny Can Cook. I just love how she explain things, and her tools are so fun!) I managed to make the brownie *yay!*

The most nerve wrecking part (for me) on trying out a new recipe is the baking process itself, the time and temperature (definitely the time, as even 1 minute would make a huge difference in texture, taste etc).

As for first try recipes I have to rely on instinct and of course my trusted nose, my sense of smell (when it’s done, the smell will give it away. Do not ignore the smell *ting!*, Ever!)

Since I’m making the brownie for the kids for tea, spruced it up with some smarties to get all fancy *hehe*

So, was it good? You betcha! When I asked the kids did it taste good, and all I get is silence because they are drowned in devouring the brownie, I knew I’ve nailed it!

Fact: brownies taste good when they’re cooled, it’s more gooey and oh so chocolatey! 

Hantaran: fruit basket and cake

major throwback. sometime early this year.

cake orders were still closed shut, but my brother asked nicely to make a cake as hantaran to give to his fiancee. so, I had to say yes. baked my all time favourite red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, and decorated real simple. even managed to whip up a new recipe of frosting which I called “red velvet frosting”; it’s our classic cream cheese frosting enriched with cocoa powder and a hint of red food colouring. it tasted so good! not too chocolaty , just red velvety.. haha

haven’t decorated cakes for quite some time..it really shows that I’m so out of practice, but nonetheless, everybody loves the cake (or so I was told :D)

I also prepared a simple fruit and chocolate basket and placed the ring box to be presented to the bride to be. it was a simple occasion, but satisfying.
