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!!!

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!

1 Egg

  1. Put A and B into the mixer, at low speed mix it well till it forms a dough (about 3mins) continue to knead at medium speed (about 3 mins).
  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.

Ma Lai Gao "Palm Sugar Cake 马来糕

I personally like food in dark color! Black noodles, black soya sauce fish & pork & chicken, dark chocolate cake , kopi O ( black coffee) are my favourite too! I made this cake not only for it's color & also the fragrance of the palm sugar! I love it as it was so soft & not oily at all!
Inspired by Tin Tin's Ma Lai Ko. I replaced the castor sugar to palm sugar (sieve it before use!) and 20g castor sugar (palm sugar not so sweet!). It was really good!

Mini Carrot Cake

Mini Carrot Cake

When I first saw this cake that made of 350g carrots, immediately I favourited the recipe because it not only look good + cute, it is rather healthier snack for everyone! Thank Sonia Nasi Lemak Lover for her all time good recipe sharing! My husband ate 3 right after it fresh baked from oven, he really loved it & commented "Crispy out, softy inside"
Sonia used a very beautiful non-stick friand mould & out of no choice I used 3 different sizes of egg tart tin to fulfil my strong desire to bake this cake &  was very happy with the result!

Note: the cakes were still very soft next day (but no more crispy as it was freshly out of oven). I personally feel that it was a bit "oily" the next day. hmm... i will cut down the oil nex time....:)

Lemon Cream Cheese Almond Crumbly Cake

Before I started baking this cake, I quite hesitated to begin it because it would take extra efforts and works to complete it! But thank God, I finally did it and it turned out to be so good that I myself took extra bites (usually I take a bite only ;) & my family loved it too (as shown the next picture that half of cake gone after it was cool and ready to serve)!

( I made half of the original ingredients and used 17" tube pan, baked 40-50mins)

2 ¼ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
10 tbsp(1 stick + 2 tbsp) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar ( I cutt down it to 3/4cup of sugar)

I love to eat banana cake more than banana itself! Anyone? Honestly i seldom peel & eat bananas because I prepare to bake them after no one like to eat overripe dark skinned bananas in my house! Haha... & that will be a good excuse for me to "finish" them!
I will definitely repeat this recipe again whenever i have dark skinned bananas in my kitchen for it is easy & simple to do & a healthier one for everyone we love!
My husband &children love the cake in small paper case -cute & a just nice portion & grab & go, no sticky hand after eating.....

Butter Cream Cheese Mini Cake

After not feeling well- bad cough for almost 2 weeks, today I get to drag myself to bake a least a cake with a simple recipe! I chose the easy one that my daughter likes to have one of this mini butter cake when we have our lunch in this Hainanese restaurant in town after church!

I like the Fruity Butter cake of Anncoo Journal. She placed strawberries and blueberries on the batter, and the mini cakes were so beautiful and i was tempting to bake one myself because I want to have a quick bite on it. Here I adjusted her recipe and baked this simple one that's my daughter's favourite. One day I will try the fruity butter cakes. You should too!

     200g Butter
     50g cream cheese
     120g Icing sugar
     4 tablespoon milk
     1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
     3 Large eggs
     120g Plain flour
     70g Bread flour
     pinch of salt
     10-15g raisins

  • Lay paper cases on a baking tray and set aside.
  • Sift plain flour, bread flour and salt together and set aside.
  • Cream butter, cream cheese and icing sugar until light and fluffy at medium speed.
  • Add eggs one at a time making sure to beat well after each addition.
  • Add vanilla extract, mix till combined.
  • Add  milk, mix till combined.
  • Fold in flour in 3 batches with a rubber spatula, mix well.
  • Mix some flour with raisins (so raisins will sink down at the bottom of cake) and pour into the batter and mix well. 
  • Spoon/ pipe the batter into paper cases.
  • Bake at preheated oven 180C for about 20 minutes.
  • Leave cake to cool before serve.
