Jasmine told me that Michelle chosen angry birds to be on her cake .... she dont want princess or something girlish .... At first i told Jasmine that i wont promise that i cant make it, thought am running out of time, had to move here and there.
Finally, after finished some tasks, i have some space of time to make only 5 angry birds .. at least. Hope Michelle like it ... Happy Birthday Gal!!!!
Mrs Selva (Saro), a mother to twin, Amita and Ainesh requested two cakes with the twin interest as decoration, Amita likes to draw, meanwhile, Ainesh has shown an interest in tennis.
Makes me looking up the ceiling for awhile, nothing there, just a white and blank ceiling, not even a lizard stick on it .... hehehe ... cant get any ideas ... too many things to do and short of time ... then i decided to curl the net to look for any pictures that might give me some ideas and at last but not least, found some ideas for Amita.
For Ainesh, i saw this picture that is just right, gives me inspiration. I cant remember the link, but i can exactly remember the deco. Credit to you mate ...

Nak cerita pasal steam buttercream pulak. Sebelum aku attend kelas Chef Ina few weeks ago, aku pernah experimen buat buttercream ni based from reading di bakingproject.com seingat aku tahun lepas.
Semasa di kelas Chef Ina, teknik yang diajar sama je melalui pembacaan aku di website bakingproject tu.
Menggunakan plastic bowl dan double boiler untuk process mencairkan buttercream.
Hari ini aku experimen sendiri tanpa menggunakan plastic bowl and double boiler. Hasilnya lebih kurang sama je. Nak tau ke? cara saya buat?
Saya gunakan periuk aluminium steel dan titiskan beberapa air di dalamnya lalu letakkan di atas api yang paling kecil, saya sediakan satu mangkuk air paip di sebelah. Apa bila periuk panas, titisan air yang di dalam periuk itu akan kering dan saya segera angkat dan celurkan belakang periuk itu dengan pantas ke dalam bekas yang berisi air paip tadi dan angkat, dengan segera saya masukkan buttercream yang telah saya sediakan 2 hari lalu (lebihan buttercream mendeco cake yang disimpan di dalam peti sejuk), dengan pantas saya kacau buttercream tu menggunakan pemukul telur (lebih kurang 2 minit).
Terus tuangkan di atas kek itu dan menggunakan teknik seterusnya yang sama untuk meratakan adunan buttercream itu ... teknik saya ni lebih cepat daripada teknik asal menggunakan double boiler ..... Hasilnya lebih kurang sama je. Setelah setengah jam, agak2 dah set buttercream tu, saya deco kek tu menggunakan buttercream (deco main2 je).

In this n3, i would like to share my doing of butter cake. I like this method of doing it bcoz its fast and easy. This is also the recipe i have used for cupcakes. Its suggested that you use a pure butter to get better taste of nice and pure butter cake.
The recipe is just like any others butter cake, just the method cud be different. Here goes :-
In a bowl, put in together;
220gm caster sugar
230gm self raising flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
5 egg yolks
Beat for 5 minutes at medium speed, slowly pour in 1/2 cup fresh milk; beat for 5 minutes then change to high speed for 2 minutes, then leave aside;
In other bowl, beat 5 egg whites till fluffy;
Add all together, use spatula to combine it well;
Ready to bake in a 8" pan at 150C for 25 - 30 minutes.
