better late than never right? july was a crazy month. there was something to do every other weekend which didn’t involve baking and well, here’s the completed cake anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚ will post more later!ย 


no twd this week

till next week! ๐Ÿ™‚

chocolate pudding!


Melissa fromย Its Melissas Kitchenย picked chocolate pudding for this week’s TWD!ย ๐Ÿ™‚

all i can say is that it smells good… whatever got on my fingers tasted good. it’s now in the fridge. i’ll let you know how it is tomorrow! till then. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

and it’s yummy! ๐Ÿ™‚ it’s not really really pudding like but it’s yummy especially after there’s baileys in it and crushed ginger snaps topping. ๐Ÿ™‚ yay!ย 

carrot cake

yummy yum yum yum! i managed to take a quick shot of the completed cake before i packed it to MS’s place for the baby shower. and boy did we have fun there. ๐Ÿ™‚ MS was a great host, she catered food, prepared games AND prizes (which i was lucky enough to get 3 of them ๐Ÿ™‚ ). i had a great very first baby shower!! ๐Ÿ™‚ heee and they managed to finish a good 2/3rds of the cake which was quite impressive as everyone had so much food and some of them even left.ย 

i brought the cake to dinner and M’s friends kindly finished it off for me. ๐Ÿ™‚ happy me is. ๐Ÿ™‚ great reviews for the cake and i’m pretty pleased with the results. ๐Ÿ™‚ it’s a recipe to keep… if i can remember what i did this morning (it was really going by how it looked etc.) but i’ll put the recipe up ย soon. ๐Ÿ™‚ย

TWD! – updated

yay! it’s done and it’s real yummy! this is really a keeper! my first pie dough too! ๐Ÿ™‚ i definitely didn’t use a food processor… maybe that’s why my dough turned out weird. but it was so yummy i went to use the rest of the dough for another 2 more mini pies (i only tried half the recipe… the family can’t keep up with the baking) anyway here are some pictures. i didn’t manage to take much coz i was so tired last night to really document the process.ย 



from last night…ย

i met up with c for lunch the other day. and coz m was busy the last few nights putting together a photo montage for a friend’s wedding i had some time on my hands… so i decided to do something for c. ๐Ÿ™‚ย

for cherie

heh… the eyes were not meant to be that… but i got lazy with the eyes and i had some spare big eyes.. and the eyes reminded me of c. ๐Ÿ™‚ so it was perfect! haha.

TWD – not

sigh. so excited to join TWD.. and in the end i didn’t even managed to complete the first challenge.ย 

cornmeal, buttermilk and dried apples… these 3 ingredients were not easy to find. and even though i decided to use fresh apple instead… and was prepared to substitute the cornmeal with whatever meal i cld find… but i didn’t know what to use to substitute the buttermilk.ย 

so i decided to sit this one out. sigh

there’s always next week ya?ย
