Princess Castle Cake

3 pieces 8" square vanilla sponge cake
500ml non dairy whipping cream
Strawberry essence
Wilton Pink icing colour
5 ice cream cones
Some pink candy rice or sand
4 strawberry wafer biscuit
Few square white marshmallow
Few gummy candies

3 days project!
To me this cake is not as pretty as I expected but to please little children
Is fairly good enough!!!haha....

To assemble the cake is so far so good & done well! But put the cream coat over 3-tier cake was rather challenging! To put cream over a cake is only for public function bcos it looks nice & presentable ! In private celebration the frosting is not favoured in my house!

Thank God for a revelation how to make a box to contain my tall cake & transport it to the school ( a walking distance though)! It took me 3 pieces of gift wrapping paper & a 13" paper cake box ( cut & remove the top lid). Use the 2 wrapping papers wrapped & sealed the cake box vertically ( to unfold 2" length at the end of the wrapping paper outwardly & the paper be able straight & stand) 1 wrapping paper folded into a lid-' to fit the tall box now!" While making this box midnight, the IKEA paper box flashing through my mindHaha... To save trouble u may opt IKEA!!!

Eggs tarts

为了孩子进好学校我们父母都想尽办法去争取!我家只有我几年就有很多打算A计划B计划的在盘转!最气的我老公不打紧的也不想配合我的AB计划!真的应了那句话"船到桥头自然直"儿子终于进入我们首选2间里的小学!若冒险去争取第一间名校,我得投下6个数字的现金搬家到学校附近,只为赌一个抽签的机会被入取!我家人都觉得太冒险了也没必要!怕到时没入取,反而一身债!不可以为了名额换来无谓的压力!
好了, 学校的事情都办妥了,开开心心作了蛋塔我家2小都爱吃!做了第一轮都一扫而光!我再做第二次小蛋塔!谢谢Qi Qi in the house 的分享!又快又好吃的蛋挞!真的值得一做再做!

Chai Kuih (traditional snacks)

This was my first attempt to make chai kuih after I noticed it is quite popular light snacks among the bloggers! What triggered me to start it was Sonia again emphasized that the skin was so soft by using teng flour ( a flour I never had one in my storage) & I decided no more postponed it or drowned it in my super long bookmarks!

Rather tricky to handle/ seal the skin in the beginning but once they were brought out from steamer I couldn't stop eating them!!! Very Worth it! Very good recommendation !


Sorry for the poor quality of photo shots, i tucked in few already then i realised i forgot to take picture. it was kind of hurry! haha... Sonia did a very perfect jobs the kuih & the photo too!

Cinnamon Rolls

The other day I bumped into a friend & come to know she had just quitted her job and be full time homemaker ( home tutor too!) as her elder girl is going to enter primary school next year! I am very admired her courage & determination that she sacrifices her career for her children & family! I got the same " plan" but it didn't work out bcos I was / am worried .... Haha...$ not enough? Insecure without a job? Too young to be full timer mom? Patience to do all houseworks?
I can feel her joy being a full time homemaker..... So I still work it out my part to be a full time staying home mum in near future....
Let have something new that I have not tried before....cinnamon rolls... To encourage myself!

  2. Until the dough has become smooth and shine in surface, add in *butter, at low speed mix it and turn to medium speed continue kneading till the dough has no stick to fingers and reached thin membrane when you stretch-pull it.
  3. shape the dough into ball and put it into a big container with well greased and let it proof it for 45mins or till double it size.
  4. after proofing, punch down the dough, divide it into 4 portion equally.
  5. take one portion and roll it into long oval shape, brush a layer of water, spread the cinnamon+brown sugar mixture on the it, follow by raisins
  6. Roll up to downward till the end, seal the end well
  7. Cut the roll into two with sharp knife, slightly press down the roll and put them into  the greased 8" round baking tin.
  8. repeat the same for the other 3 portion of dough, and you will have 8 cinnamon rolls lined beautifully in the baking tin.
  9. Let have last proofing for about 40 mins, brush with the egg+milk wash, spinkle some almonds flakes, bake at 180C for 20mins.
  10. Remove from oven, slowly spread the icing sugar+maple syrup on the swirling line of the rolls.
Note: Don't pour all the icing sugar syrup at once if you don't like to have very sweet rolls.
