My First Mini Cakes!

Assalamualaikum and Hi Everybody!

I am so excited! At last, I got the chance to unleash my (ahem) creativity on these mini cakes..
Thanks Inaz for this opportunity, although it did not turn out EXACTLY as you want :). Of course, I want to inject my own style, lor!

*in actual fact, I could not create the shade of green as in the given photo, so, I had to improvise!

 Here's the first of the cakes..

 A little close-up...

 All five of them mini cakes..

 View from top... In retrospect, I shouldn't have put them too far apart... Hmmm, I shouldn't have glued the doilies in the first place, I couldn't move them even if I want to! LOL!

Here's another close-up. Aren't they beautiful? I love the flowers, I think they call them daisies...

Happy Engagement Inaz dear! Semoga berkekalan!

I would also like to thank my baking buddies, Akmalazura and Daalia for their support and advise. Thanks a lot gals!

Assalamualaikum and Hi Everybody!

Last weekend, w were invited to a baby-welcoming party at Sri Gombak. Here was what I managed to prepare, in-between helping Little Chef Hasif on his Cupcake Project...

I forgot to take the cakes picture in its uncut form... oh well, better have something rather than nothing!

All nicely cut and neatly wrapped for the journey to Sri Gombak.

Teaser: White. little flowers

Assalamualaikum and Good Day!

Here is one of the projects that I did during he weekend, together with my daughters. We had a fun time doing these little white flowers with fondant. I don't know what is its name, but as long as it is cute, sweet and pretty, it's enough for us.

They are sooo pretty... (if I may say so..hehe)

This is supposed to be a closed up look...

This is the beginning of a significant project, planned by middle of this week..

Please look out for more postings on this project...

Little Chef Hasif

Assalamualaikum and Good Day!

Nowadays, kids are so lucky. They got to do interesting projects for their homework. For example, Hasif, who is only on Year 2 (8 years old), had to bake cupcakes as one of his homework requirements. It is in his textbook! He simply dragged his mummy to the kitchen to help him bake the cupcakes!

I was pleasantly surprised that Hasif willingly did all the requirements, such as measuring the ingredients, whisking the eggs, whipping the butter and sugar and spooning the batter into the paper cups. I just need to help him a little, especially on the baking-in-the-oven job.

The recipe was very basic, but everyone praised Hasif's cupcakes as they were very good! (better than mummy's ones...).

Here is Hasif with his prized cupcakes, still hot from the oven..

I have to admit that he has what it takes to be a chef.. :)

Here's a closer look of them cupcakes. Aren't they a beauty? They tasted great too!

Mummy and her little son had a great time doing this project. It was a great bonding time!

Bravo Hasif! Looking forward to more tasty little cupcakes from you!
