Variety packed Cheesecake

This was an order from my husband's company lunch gathering before heading off for the fasting month.

The first one was an Oreo Cheesecake as all time favourite, the middle one was the classic bake of Digestive which is for those health concious consumer and the last one was a chocolate moist topped with a thick layer of cheese, the double layer cake. All this are the one pound cake which I have in my list for cake tester.

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.

Chocolate Moist

Must be a chocolate month, everyone wanted a chocolate cake, I think whoever view this blog will get boring, any other cake I know how to bake must be the question....???

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.

Chocolate Moist Individual Minicakes

This was specially done for my long lost good friends from my secondary school. In fact I made these for their kids and some mini classic digestive cheesecakes for them and their husband but never really manage to get some shot before I went and meet them up. Sorry fellow friends and bloggers, I never manage to get a sharp and good shot for you all to view but mainly on memories and the final tastebud of individual who tasted the cakes. Not my way of doing it so clumsily.

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.

Chocolate Moist

This was preordered by my auntie for her eight year old daughter for her birthday that she invited us to and I'm really honoured that she give me such chances to make this special cake for her. It's a chocolate moist which her daughter love and sandwiched with peanut sauce and topped with chocolate ganache.

All the little figurines was also requested as her daughter's favourite bear and picnic theme goes with all, still learning and I wasn't really satisfied with what I did because for the past whole week it was either hot or humid and raining every evening, the sugar paste doesn't work out as I wanted it to be...luckily with Gods grace it holds together till the very moment I present it to the birthday girl and her smile on her face means more then anything.

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.

Her favourite grey bear is always by her side having a slice of cake with a cup of tea with her bear friend and the other bear went off with her picnic basket which contains some apple and strawberry playing and went toppled over while the butterfly just stops on the bear feet and other park little friends just watch...her favourite colour is also purple.

Hopefully it does create some story to go with the birthday girl. Glad she loves it.

Thank you A. Gidget and U. Matt.

Mini Peach Cheesecake

I made this when I saw it in one of the book in a store and I thought it was a rare cheesecake where hardly can see in cake shops so I really want to try it out if it does looks like what stated in the book...

The decorative sponge lining was thin and it's fragile and can easily break, rather satisfied with the overall even though the look doesn't seems to be as perfect as I wanted to be.

It's a very light chilled cheesecake, just good for breakfast or tea, definitely great with a cup of coffee, tea, hot milk or hot chocolate.

This cheesecake contains of a thin layer of vanilla sponge at the bottom and the decorative sponge lining to go around the chilled peach cheese filling, the peaches are cut into chunks. This cheesecake can always add to any one's favourite, because we can use any fruits even as simple as grapes either the green sourly ones or the red sweet ones is great to the lighter side of the cheesecake.

Whoever have tasted this might give it an 8 out of 10 but to me....can be better.

It does take sometime but the outcome of the cake is just good as it looks. this bottom one I just try to make it without any decorative sponge lining and looks normal the taste without the slightly sweet sponge lining makes it a little heavy, still with the lining it taste better.
