My First Attempt ....

I'm so in love with my Wallow in the Mud. The rich chocolate texture that you can feel in every bite. However, I could not be so self-centered. Definitely there is somebody who does not like chocolate. I decided to have a try on Choc Fudge. Plenty of milk. 360ml of Milk. It is moist..almost liked our local favorite choc moist. A lil bit bitter as the baking soda and baking powder, both 1 teaspoon.

I'm out of meringue powder. How am I gonna do? But there's plenty of white choc in stock. White candy melt from Wilton. I found these 2 recipes for White Choc Glaze. One from and the other one Our Family Favorite Recipe. One used more milk and portion of white choc and confectioners sugar is the same. The other one is confectioners sugar less then the white choc but it has Grand Marinier and a tablespoon of water. So I combined both and a lil bit of adjustment to suit my taste bud.

White Choc Glaze...

8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped(Wilton Candy Melt)
1/4 c. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
3/4 c. powdered sugar, sifted
3 tbsp. Milk
A pinch of salt

Heat chocolate and butter in top of double boiler over barely simmering water, stirring until melted and smooth. Mix sugar, salt and milk in small bowl until sugar dissolves. Add to chocolate and stir until smooth. Remove from over water and let stand until cool but still pourable.

Remove pan sides from cake. Pour glaze atop cake and spread over top and sides. Refrigerate until set (can be prepared 6 hours ahead).

Eid Mubarak Greetings

It is still in the month of Syawal. Therefore to all friends Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri. Maaf Zahir & Batin.

It has been months I sort of abandoned this blog. Not really. The thing is, my laptop goes wacky all the time. And the moment I wanted to upload images or published the post, they were gone. Arghhhh...

Anyway, Alhamdulillah. Thanks to hubby for lending his. I can update few things before networks poofed again.

There wasn't much orders during Ramadhan. Few things happened and it was right decision for not taking orders. I was quite busy starting from late July till mid of August. Baking and simple deco classes. My graduation for Wilton 2.

I wasn't prepared to be a chef. Even to teach people how to bake and deco. I'm aware that I was very new in this line. For a friend's sake, I just give a try. It was more towards community class. The pay.. so-so.

Sya's Birthday Cake

As promised, I baked 'Wallow In The Mud' for my one and only daughter. The frosting is cocoa buttercream with chocolate essence and chocolate food colouring. This to enhance the taste and the colour of the buttercream. Luckily I had few roses and little flowers in progress for a client's order. I made borders of rossettes. The letterings are fondant cut outs. I tried some of wilton 3 string skills to add a touch of elegance to the cake.

When she return home from school, all I get was 'The cake was so yummy' and a big smile on her face. As her friends claimed that the cake was pretty and sweet. It never occured in my mind to show off but at times just try to make our beloved ones feels happy and proud of themselves.

Back to school again

Hooray... Back to school again. I continue my deco class with Wilton Deco 2 and Wilton Deco 3. Same day different time. Sounds like it so easy, but now I realised it was not as easy as Wilton 1.

Wilton Course 2 Book and Kit

Wilton Course 3 Book and Kit

Both classes require a lot of patience and passion. Wilton 2, dealing with Royal Icing, under the cooling air conditioned room. Aggghhhhh... it tends to dry so quickly. Where else we have to be very patience to form the flowers. Wilton 3, Royal Icing again and fondant and roses.

Unfortunately for me, it is my darling daughter's birthday this very day. I have promised her a birthday cake for her tomorrow. Class finished at about 5.00pm plus. Then we decided to celebrate her birthday at Burger King in Shah Alam Extreme Park. When I reached home it was nearly 9pm. I was so exhausted. So dengan sedihnya I minta my daughter her favour to postpone her birthday cake to Tuesday. With additional janji lah off course

Cupcakes! Cupcakes! Cupcakes & Big Happy Family

My hubby's nephew asked for cupcakes. As he was far a way, down south in Johor Bahru, it was quite impossible. So, when his Mom came over to Kuala Lumpur, we baked him some.

We baked a lot actually. We baked for almost everybody. We baked for Mak Long, Kak Nana and hubby, Cik Acit, Auntie Rose, Abg Shahrul, Abg Erwin, Kak Eva, Sya, Bajun, Pitit and Lil Faiz. We baked the XL sizes. We baked SS sizes and Just Nice for Abg Farid and family 16pcs. Vanilla and Wallow in the Mud. I love to stress on my Wallow In The Mud choc cake. I got it from Chockylit. It is not Choc moist. But it is rich with choco flavor. And sweet. And like the mud itself. Not moist bud muddy texture. Where else Choc Moist a lil bit bitter. I realised the measurement for soda bicarb was more than baking soda. This is the reason of bitterness. For all choc moist recipe, we had to put more soda bicarb then baking powder.

Wallow in the Mud. Yupppp sweet. It was my own mistake for not tasting the raw ingredient. The chocolate was bitter sweet chocolate. Hello..... it was BITTER Sweet Chocolate. It never came accross in my mind that BITTER sweet chocolate is actually still very sweet. It taste like Nescafe tarik. You know. The one with full of Ummmphhhh. Its damn thick. Lots of Nescafe and lots of Cap Teko or Susu F&N(the condensed milk brand). Yessss that sweet. So now I have to reduce a lil bit the amount of sugar.

Okay. Enough on the cake. Back to the event... hmm. My niece loves photography. She and her hubby, ahhh what a lovely couple and really meant together. And my cupcakes... they became the victims.... What else. Photo Shoot session. Never thought the cupcakes would look that nice. Anyway, we had a good time, Eating session, photo shoot session, photography class and scuba diving tooo????? So, Nana and hubby thanks for the free shoots and sessions. Sorry ek my pocoyo did a mess here and there.

After Setiawangsa, we headed to Uptown Kota Damansara. Sending my hubby's 8th brother to meet up their eldest brother. All in all I arrived home at about 2.30am on 12th of July 2009. And guesss whatttt......... to be continued...

A Thank You Note. . . .

These cupcakes were ordered by my Aunt. As a thank you note for a friend in the hospital, she claimed. So, I baked the Wallow in the mud choc cake. But I added a little hint of cappuccino.
Decorated it with cappuccino swirls and chocolate rice. Those for the borders. 9 pieces with strawberry frosting and pink roses on top of them.

Wilton Deco 1 - Completed

Alhamdulillah. Thank God. Without me realising it, it is over. Today is my last day for Wilton Deco 1. Our graduation project is to deco a 10" round cake with roses. And to apply techniques that we have learned throughout the class. And message on cake. I baked a strawberry cake. Rich with fresh strawberries. A 4"height cake. Haha... I managed to get the right height this time. But I had to bake double for lil Farisa's Pocoyo choc cake.

I was really out of time. I was rushing for the roses. Eventhough only 10 -12 roses were needed, I had to do more. To get the best 10. My lovely niece asked me for a Jim Jam & Sunny. But I could not find a big pic of them. So.. I asked my ever dearest hubby to ask wether lil cute Pocoyo is acceptable. Lucky me, it was a green light. Sunday morning I rushed to iced the 10" cake at about 7.30am. Then start to iced the Pocoyo's cake and start to decorate it. I did the major one. Since it was time to leave for the class, my hubby and daughter assisted me in final touch up.Just adding hearts and nonpareils. I got to bring the whole family as it was no way to travel here and there. I need to rush to my niece house immediately after the class.

When I reached my class. They have started with drop flowers and stars. And some still continuing their roses. Including me.... hehehe. Then sweet peas. Then ribbons. Then leaf....Then start to decorate the cake. I realised there was a patch on the side of my cake. I tried to smooth it out with spatula soaked in hot water. It didnot help much. So I decorated it with lots and lots of drop flowers. I arranged my roses to form a big 'C'. I need to leave some space for message writting. I made shell borders for the cake with stars at the side. I wrote Happy Birthday Farisa in Green. A real contrast for a peach background and add lil hearts in green icing on empty spaces.

So... congratulation to myself and happy first birthday to my sweet baby Farisa... She's my so called granddaughter you know. What else do you call your niece daughter.... :-)

To all my Wilton Deco 1 classmates, congratulations and best wishes to whatever you want to pursue in life.....

To my instructor Soon Ching, thank you very much.

p/s Thanks June for the photos....

Bila Hati Tak Tenang

I believed in energy transfer. Meaning, bila kita sedih, surrounding kita pun sedih. Bila kita happy, surrounding kita pun happy. Sama juga dengan memasak atau membakar. Bila kita ceria, masakan kita atau kek ataupun kuih-muih kita jadi extra sedap. And that's the real secret ingredient.

Bila badan dah letih, jiwa gelisah, my cupcakes did not turn up as it should be. Pertama kali since I start this biz, I did my deco so badly. My clown cupcakes did not look funny at all. Luckily my bear did look like a bear. The rest only hearts. I should do dots, shell and many more. But I did not have the heart to do so. Dalam kelas pun blank jer.

So, it is true. And next time, I will not touch a thing bila hati tak tenang. How good is your cupcake, with this kind of negative energy. It is a total disaster!!!
