Cookies for Eid 2009

Yes, as shocking as it may seem, I have successfully baked my very own cookies for Eid celebration :). Fout types of them! It may not seem much to most people, but to me it's a huge accomplishment (eat your heart out, Adik!).

Clockwise from top left: pineaple tarts, crunchy choc chip, semperit and choc cornflakes.

Here are some extras, specially baked for my nieces, Shazleen and Shahinaz. Since Shazleen is pregnant with her second child, it's hard to refuse her craving for 'flowery pineaple tarts', as she claimed that she couldn't find it after searching for it high and low, almost everywhere. Although I find it hard to believe, I am game for a try...

And Shahinaz will only be here for 2 weeks after Eid, before she has to go back to Sydney, by which time, there'd be surely no 'flowery tarts' would be found at the shops.

Soooo.....finally it took me half a day to bake all 128 pieces of these beauties... phew! Such hard work!

The 'flowery tarts' are quite small though (but cute :)) because that's the only, nearest to the 'flowery' mould that I could find in my modest collection.

Hope Leen & Inaz enjoy the tarts. Sorry for the delay dears, as Auntie was only able to do it on 5th Syawal!
A little bit late, but better late than never!

Happy Eid Mubarak 2009

It's Eid Mubarak again! Time flies very fast nowadays, I found it very hard to catch up and update my baking projects here. I 'm keeping a lot of my projects since the last post. Hopefully I'll be able to update it all soon!

I'd better start with my latest 'babies', chocolate moist cake, simply decorated using ganache and chocolate rice, and.... ta-ra!... my first ever pandan-layered cake. The first is for Kak Eton, who ordered it for this festive season and the pandan-layered is for my beloved MIL.

My own mom? Sorry mom, no cakes for you this time. You must have enough cakes from your other daughter and your DIL!

Last but not least, Happy Eid Mubarak for all Muslims, my brothers and sisters from wherever you are...
