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.

3-Step Flan

Some call it flan,  others pudding caramel. Whatever it’s called.. It sure is my favourite express dessert.  The whole family loves it,  it’s easy to make,  and most of all,  it’s foolproof. 😊

Step 1:

Heat 5 tbsp sugar with 8-9 tbsp water over low heat,  until sugar mixture turns golden brown.  (I just heat them directly in the baking pan.  You can heat them in a different pan then pour em into the baking pan). 

Let caramel cool and harden.  Meanwhile.. 

Step 2:

Mix in bowl: 5 eggs,  1 can of evaporated milk,  1/2 cup water,  1/2 cup sugar and some vanilla essence. 

Mix well and pour into baking pan (with the harden caramel). 

Step 3:

Steam for about 30 minutes.  Let cool.  Keep refridgerated.  Best served cold,  with fresh fruits of choice,  and whipped cream!  It’s even so good to eat it on its own  😍😍

Same date, different birthdays

My 5yo daughter and 1yo boy shared the same birthday! What are the odds ay?  😂

Baked an almost rainbow cake for her,  mermaid themed;  and a hotwheels themed orange cake for him. 

Used a whole lot of edible images for decoration.  It was fun,  especially for my 5yo as she gets to “stick” those “creatures” onto the cake on her own 😍

No Bake Carrot Cake

I haven’t bake or make any cakes for quite sometime now..with another bun in the oven, the cake oven stays barren..haha

So, there we were at my mom’s. Well, it was my brother’s birthday. We decided to make a cake that mom could indulge in (she’s been on a strict diet for a few years now to get healthy). So, we decided to make this No Bake Carrot Cake from Trinity’s Kitchen. You can look up for her video on youTube.

The cake is pretty simple to make, but let me ensure you it IS rich in taste and it is something you could really indulge in. It tastes even better after a few days in the fridge as it sets well.

Decoration was pretty decent. Covered the cake with some delicious creamy cashew and dates (combo) frosting. Topped with some walnuts, and some raisins around the cake as its border. And of course, what’s a birthday cake without some cake toppers for the birthday boy. The cake turned out beautifully. However the frosting was a bit challenging, I would make sure the dates were pitted before they are soaked so that they would really soften and blend a bit more easily. Other than that this is a really easy and tasty cake to assemble, enjoy! 🙂

Frills rainbow doll cake

It starts with one..now it’s a favourite for doll cakes – frills rainbow doll cake. It’s basically rainbow cake made into a doll cake with colourful frills on the outside..so, it’s double the rainbow, double the fun! It’s really simple to do..a bit tricky on carving the skirt..and it used up a lot of buttercream (and mixing colours obviously)

image

This was one of the earliest..I can’t recall who ordered..but it was from a local here in kuantan.

This is for our regular, Rafidah for her daughter’s 3rd birthday 🙂

And this is from today, inverted rainbow on the outside..ordered by Yan from indera mahkota, kuantan.

A big thanks to all who loved our frills rainbow doll cake 🙂

Colorful frills rainbow cake

Frills..they look real pretty n luckily not that hard to master the technique 😉 u don’t really need a steady hand for this..just some buttercream with the right consistency and nice colors 🙂

After crumbcoating the cake, I started “frilling” around the bottom

Working up and around the cake

Until I’ve reached the top..

Fill the tip with frills working from the edge towards the centre and top it off with a cute red heart 😉
