This cake was really a challenge and well i loves challenges as always, here are some of the process before i got the final piece of kind of fist attempt for figures, i really thank my Flickr friends for teaching me alot even i ask too much. Well i guess from the picture this cake was really a custom made design for my youngest daughter's birthday but we did it on the weekend at my in laws place and i was kind of accumulate alot of reference from all over my Flickr friends and try alot, in fact my first doll torn apart and i never give up and did it again.
All can be eaten, fondant molded figurines and topped with fresh cream, sandwiched with lemon banana slices. This is the comments from others who have tasted this cake, but too me is just very normal unlike the one I myself was very please about was the two Hazelnut cheesecake and Macadamia nuts cheesecake that was exquisite, i don't know the prize outside but who loves cheesecake knows the prize and taste well.
Wasn't a good shot, my camera always low battery when starts getting into the mood to take more....oooohhhh disappointed. Mainly i was rather satisfied with the outcome and of course the most important thing when everyone look at it they start to admire what i did....More to come for her real day on 27th May.
Please next time whoever visited my blog if you beautiful ladies and gentleman leave a comment....thank you

What's worst is my neighbour's daughter order for her mum and she doesn't know what her mum likes, so from daily observation, from her clothing's she loves wearing i think I'll just give it a shot that she might loves it even she doesn't eats the cake. It's called cotton is because of the texture, soft as cotton. It's a very classic cake anyone will like or at anytime of the day.
So as the first cake that i made for my mum, cheese is always good with chocolate, so i did ask my neighbour and they doesn't want cream so i just does the frosting and the flowers as my basic ones just additional cute little fellas in for the kids to enjoy. Haven't really met them, hope they really feels satisfy with what they ordered.
Firstly, the macadamia nuts is driving me crazy, i was scouting high and low for that, but at last i just bought it the edible nuts which cost me quite a bit but worth it when i myself saw the final piece and i have a chance to taste it aha... It's with the finest cream cheese, macadamia nuts which i have to blend in with the fresh milk and the chocolate frosting was done by double whipped, fresh milk and semi sweet dark chocolate. The coloured stuff is from my usual peppermint fondant. Wasn't too good at the flowers yet still a beginner after all. Trying improve though.
I do wish i can really polish on the roses, it will be definitely good if yellow and white roses are added in, I'm sure my mu will love those as well. Whoever who wish for a try no harm ordering though. Worth a try, i would class this cake as a good cake.

This was made for my daughters caretaker since she was born. It's a confinement home where there are quite a few of them including the two 'yee ma' like God mother to her, all of them are very loving.
Love trying on new things, instead of going for cupcakes, i do try this simple bread cuppies, which is just good for breakfast or anytime of the day, it won't feel very full, not too sweet and what surprise me most is the Oreo biscuit which turns out as soft as the texture of the bread which add the extra fragrant on the bread itself.
No yeast needed and that saves a lot of time, even can be bake in the morning before we take those hot ones to work or school. Using brown sugar for health purposes.
This was made to satisfy some cravings and the experiment did paid off, in fact my mum help me on the pastry, outcome wasn't too bad and of course the egg that matters the most.
Imagine when done baking, my daughter the first to finish the eggs topping and not the pastry. This was made for the weekend for the children and of course for my hubby.
Will definitely go for second and more shots to get better results or should say time does wasted quite a lot despite of the taste.
All in all just good. This haven't really dare to put out in the market...haha
