I know I’m bad enough not to update my blog’

I’m too busy with my working stuffs until I don’t have time to sit infront of the computer and finish updating my blog. But at least each time I’m baking, I’m sure to take a quick snap of the cakes I baked out. LOL πŸ™‚

In this few weeks when I’m away from blog, I did manage to bake at night. And this is the pictures.

The right side of this is Oreo Chocolate Cupcakes πŸ™‚ Yummy…. I like the taste so much.. πŸ™‚

This is the Banana Walnut Cupcakes πŸ™‚

This is a bunch of Banana Cupcakes that I failed. From here, I learn that to divided half of the recipes to test first before make a first attempt on that much. haiz ~

Hah! this is the 3 times I trying to make Meringue, this time i success ! πŸ™‚ Glad that my son love it.. πŸ™‚

And here is the pictures that I snap for my Baking ChallengesΒ of August 2010 months :

This is Vanilla Sponge Cake. it nicely baked. – I use it to make Peach Ice Cream Cakes.
Of course we have to make everything from scratch. But the Peach Ice Cream that I make is melting too fast. Even I try to save it several time by putting in and out from refrigerator. I still failed to manage it well.

I scoop the Peach Ice Cream to the sponge cake that cut half, i use springform tin to make this decorating.

Nah! it ended like this. I put into refrigerator.

And it ended like this when I took out from the refrigerator. Oh GOSH! it really melting…. I got no time, just be fast and grap my camera and take a quick snap of this melting cakes. – I hope I can try again. πŸ™‚

1st bake cake with new oven

HAHA ! that day i met a guy friend. He told me that the first bake thing from the new oven normally cannot eat. So, I tried to bake a cupcake to test the oven. It came out perfectly well for the taste. Just the look of the cupcakes is not so nice. i put two tray of 6 cupcakes pan inside. And only 1 cupcake nicely pop out.

And theΒ second attempt, I bake Blueberry Crumble Cake for the challenge of the July at Learn2BAKE Club. It came out not really nice, but it taste yummy πŸ™‚

I get my OVEN !!!

wow! I bought OVEN after 3 weeks hoping to be able to get the OVEN to stuffing inside my tiny and pack kitchen. I decided to give up thinking and planning where to put the OVEN. I just bought it because I really hope I can bake more beside cake with my rice cooker.

Sometime I feel pretty hardΒ  – I cannot cook rice while I bake the cake. I scare if I bake too much my rice cooker will spoil πŸ™‚

Happy Father’s Day

It’s a good Sunday early morning, I woke up at 6am just to bake my Father’s Day Cake. This Chocolate Sponge Cake I specially make for my own father. I didnt decorate much because if too many whipped cream also not really good choice for my father that have diabetic.
I reduce the sugar in this cake, and the cake came out salted a bit. Next time I should use unsalted butter if I want to bake less sugar cake. πŸ™‚

This cake I actually bake it on Saturday night. Where I only decorated it with whipping cream on Sunday morning. I found out that I really not good at decorating the cake. So …. I just try my best to present it nicely … This cake called America Chocolate Sponge CakeΒ I bake it for my father in law.
Everyone said it’s nice but I found out that it still not really moist enough. πŸ™‚

Happy Father’s Day to you all ! I love you both daddy … πŸ™‚

2nd Attempt for America Chocolate Sponge Cake

This is the results of my 2nd attempt to bake again the America Chocolate Sponge Cake. Because I was rushing to get the cake ready and send to my parent’s house. Without waiting the cake to cool for 5-10mins, I directly get it out to plate. And the cake split two. 😦 too bad. no more rounded cake.

I use the mould to cut out the cake into smaller rounded pieces look like cupcake.

And the final results is look like this.. That is really awful. Because I still didnt catch up how to decorate the cake, so the poor cake ended up like this.

Anyway, I still not really satisfy with the results. Because the next day my cake that I put inside the refrigerator came out harder when I try to have a bite. 😦 I don’t know what went wrong…. But still trying to figure it out..
