There is a delectable range of Sugee Cake available in the market or should say it depends on some family tradition to pass down this recipe especially it runs down in certain Eurasian family will know what it taste like. To me, like my husband once said, "I don't know what is it so nice about this classic cake which have such high price people would pay to have a taste of this'' or mostly a favourite among classic English wedding.
To me, I'm not a fan of sweet stuff or dessert in particular but those who really know this cake might want to leave me some comment. All I know is the amount of ground almond which not many people like if to choose from the range of nuts but who know this nut well will like this, not too sweet, just moist enough but the grainy texture which you have to taste it slowly, might make this cake special...

It started with a proposal of an Orange Yogurt Cake, and this is the result after much try when the sample agreed to sent at the end of last month. This is the naked cake which haven't been dressed.
This was the collection I sent off for the sample that they want the flavour, flat top to avoid messed up and because it's for a gift away pack for an evening garden Christmas party and they requested fully sugar paste don't want any cream at all.
This was in fact my first try before the request so as you can see some cream been use, some 2D's and 3D's of course the 3D's are definitely more time consuming and fully hand molded.
This was basically out of idea on what more to go but trying not to use too much of sugar and towards out weather the twisted cane failed a few try because it cracks and gone down the dustbin.
I guess this is the sleepy pair of rain deer due to the cool weather...looks not too bad after I tried it...maybe not many will like but this was inspired by one of my Flikr friends on line it looks cute.
This Santa was eaten by my daughter...she saw it, but the cream does blend in much better then the full sugar paste one, comes to taste it taste better with the combination.
This was my first snowman, my imaginative snowman which at least stands at this humid weather here. Kids will like but not adults...haha I was thinking this snowman can be put onto my Christmas Yule log in my next posting, hopefully manage to post before Christmas.
This is the packing which is requested by my customer which is a gift away for their company's Christmas Garden Party, the ribbon was their corporate colour and the Christmas tag came with a Christmas tree shape which contains my contacts behind goes rather well with the whole package. Thanks to my Auntie for giving me chances to go and propose my cake.

So basically I guess this is from some of my experiment on my own my die cutting skill of henna on sugar paste and sugar silver balls. Hope it doesn't look so bad. Never went to ask for orders or should I say I wouldn't dare to accept it with my bad cough and flu....sorry my fellow friends and relatives. Maybe for next year of festival of Light will try on more to make it a set of six at least.
My photo shot the other night doesn't came out quite good on the lighting was bad...just two of it to temp the flavour, which brings in the oriental of good fortune on oranges. Good fortune always seek by any race or religion if comes to celebration. Thank for dropping by...please leave down your comment before you leave my site!

I hope this look new to anyone who happen to drop by to my blog, it something new to myself either, just happen to have drop by a page of recipe that I feel challenging to make for my own birthday but never make it but at least I made it an attempt to work it out but learn a lot during the process.
I kind of like the whole package outlook of the final piece just slack in some little here and there as usual for a first try I guess but the wholesome of the taste was just nice smooth, fragrant and crunchy at the same time. The base itself I self blended in some secret recipe to in case of the extra sweetness that the milk might bring in and the yogurt topping that amaze me the most, haven't dealt with such an extra amount of eggs in the cheese and unfamiliar with the funny temperature to bake the whole cake.
Here's just something to share, give it a shot and you'll be amaze....but not everyone love it, everyone have individual taste, myself will just put it as a moderate cheesecake which i guess those who doesn't like it too rich, this is alright for them and not sweet at all, maybe the caramelized sugar which blend in the hazelnuts, almonds and walnut makes it even.

This special recipe I have it from a friend in year 2008, but never have a chance or should say no confidence to try it out and I have allot of feed backs that the cake cracks, too sweet or no green tea taste at all.
But to be honest, I was happy with the trying, just first try and I found it rather satisfied as every feedback from some of my friends are proven wrong, I found this recipe just as perfect...moist, spongy, soft, not too sweet at all and most of all is the green tea fragrant is what I feel satisfied about.
It does take up a little time to make the whole thing and of course the waiting is worth every slices and mouthful. In fact what surprise me most is kids love it as well, and they ask for more. The filling takes a bit of time to make it and allot of energy to mash and mix the thing. It's red bean paste had mix in streaks to the whipped cream and I can tell you it kills your arm to mix up the whole 1 cup....
Will do more in the future, definitely goes well with a cup of tea.

This cake was specially made for my brother's friend who came down from Japan for the weekend. He was definitely lucky to have freshly flown in macadamia nuts from Australia, was brought back by my Australia auntie for us. So I just thought make it just a small portion.
Earlier in my blog there is one mother's day cake I made for my own mother is the very same one but the macadamia nuts was bought from the shopping mall here and couldn't manage to get some shots into the detail of the cake.
So here it is the detail of the vanilla sponge and the cheese layer. This time I was rather satisfied because of the time I use and the outcome of the texture is so fine and cotton soft. Even my kids love it, just manage a small portion to ourselves to be cut and to test it out before I give it to my brother's friend to be flew back to Japan to store and eat.

It was a long weekend and can't manage to get any of her friends to come but pull it together and she is all excited what am I actually doing for her. I know her all time favourite is pink and Chocolate cake but I never go with the usual one, in fact this time around she ask me for a Peanut cake...i was thinking what cake was that...so I did search high and low whether I have such recipe in my baking collection...so finally I tot I go with what i think good for all.
Now I know why the shop charge it so high...pricing. I had two Wilton store bought doll specially for this doll cake and sent in by my father, yet wasn't satisfied with the outlook so, I just decided to go buy one original Barbie for my small one completed with purple dancing outfit with purple shimmering slippers.
I learn something very new during the whole process and it does take up a lot of effort and time....I felt like giving up when the clock struck 2.30am and I needed a toothpick to hold up my eyelid.
My daughter got up at 6.30am and wanted to just catch a glimpse of her mysterious cake... and got scolded bad into bed. Finally I manage myself up at 7am and say to her let me finish up some final touches...
To me the satisfaction of the overall process is always the smile tells it all. and the Wow! look on others... this cake is not sweet, light n satisfying, nothing special just the effort. Love my daughters and just want to give them everything I can.
The partly cut out cake and the torn off sugar paste..., luckily never got the shot of the torn out dress left her nothing...I warn her not to take so much, but this time I was glad even the fondant paste is home made, 100% Halal, added vanilla powder and honey. So the sugar level is reduced. Prices ranges, and call to enquire. Thank you for taking your precious time to browse through my blog, and do please leave comments.

Usually this naked cakes are those my customers favourite during festive season because of the lifespan, no problem when transporting and it won't just melt off...nice when it's chilled even thawed in room temperature. Just some tips, this is a rather heavy cheesecake, but for some cheese lovers they'll love it. Have a try n you'll not regret. Thanks and have a nice day.
This cake was specially bake for my little sister in KL but I really disappoint her, sending it down by courier, I made a very big mistake that I never personnally saw those person in charge placing the fragile tag on the package, they damage the whole cake. When I saw what she took for me the picture when she open up, my heart was breathless for a second. What on earth happen, is like an earthquake just happen.
I think no one would imagine the worst, my figurine is gone into pieces, my whole cake broke, I think if it's handle with care or they nvr throw definately it will be still alright. Because I sent off with a careful check, those figurine just touch the cover which could hold the thing in shape, even slight trigger wouldn't damage the thing. Imagine the damage on the cake itself...there must be throwing. I really curse and swear, and this wasn't my first time sending such cake down to KL and this is really my unlucky day having such bad incident.
I think, careful is still the trick of the whole thing and the person in charge to really handle with care. Couldn't sleep thinking of that nightmare.
Sorry ladies, Siti Norbaya & Husband, Aryanti, Azira and Nazirah. Glad you all enjoyed it.
Just a very simple chocolate moist minicakes and it's topped with peanut sauce. please leave some comment for me to improve better. Thanks for giving me chances to try for you ladies to share.

Please do forgive me as I was careless to leave behind the red ribbon on her grey bear but she was smiling and that means more then any words could describe.
My box wasn't tall enough to place everything up on top of the cake that is why I have to crack my head to try place everything she loves to the cake.

This was one of the not so ordinary cake for me to do but it's just upon customize by my uncle for her special wife, my auntie. I hope she likes it...I can admit I was a bad cake decorator comes to idea and so on, I always did a bad job, but hopefully the taste pulls it together. Thanks to one of my other auntie that manage to bring the cake all the way down to KL to present it to her sister's birthday.
To me bake cakes last the most is 5 days but due to the journey and weather I think it's just best to consume it straight away because of no preservatives use to prolong the life of the cake. This rich butter cake is sandwiched with slices of peaches with whipped, topped with chocolate ganache and peach syrup and the bag, its my first try to wrapped a piece of cake in rolled fondant.
Happy Birthday Auntie Jess, hope you and your family love it. Please anyone if happen to come in and visit this page do leave comment so that I can improve better. Thanks.

I think I learn alot from this time...never ever try any lemon with fondant...it's a disaster...very sorry. It doesn't reach to my sister in law in good shape, the colour fades after hours in the humidity...but she was so nice to say it was ok.
I really felt bad and uncomfortable with what happen. Just to be lucky to get the shot of some good ones before I hand it to her.
The frosting was lemon cream cheese and the cake is chocolate sponge sandwiched with the lemon cheese so it's light, comes with sweet and sour but overall the outlook makes my heart sank when I open the box.
Please if you and your friends tasted the cake leave some comment so I can further improve on it...and get ready for your big day next year.

This was a last minute cake to goes with the main cake, that is why it looks matching but specially made for my auntie in-laws family of six, sorry if it's too little just trying out my new packaging I found it on my way back from one of the bakery shop I went the day before the weekend.
