3D Car Cake for Iman

"Tak payah potong la..." Iman said, hesitate to cut his birthday cake.

A 3D car cake for Iman. He wished for that many times before but due to some reasons I couldn't fullfil his dream. This year 5th December, he turned 10. So, this 10th birthday celebration, I made his dream come true.

With his little matchbox Mustang 1965 model, I carved my 12" x 9" size buttercake to be a car. Here it is... taraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa... my first 3D cake. A little bit messy but I am glad I did it!!! All by my own.

Pity Iman, he had to cut his dreamt car cake.

Sour Cream Cake

I've done this cake before and turned out soft, light and tasty. Originally it is called Sour Cream Coffee Cake but there's not even a pinch of coffee been used. Don't know where does the coffee come from. I prefer to name it as Sour Cream Cake. If you like the taste and the aroma of the cinnamon, get and try this recipe here http://thebakingstudio.blogspot.com/2008/10/sour-cream-coffee-cake.html



Fruit Cake

Rich of dried mixed fruits. Favourite to everyone who tasted it. 'Wiped out' in a minute. Can't stop eating till finish.

Sweet Sour Layered Cake

This is my 'long time dreamt wanna do' cake - Kek Lapis Masam Manis before the haw flakes meet the expiry date. I bought the square shape haw flakes during my 'jalan jalan cari makan' in Kuching a year ago. Aiyooooooo... have to fly to Kuching to get those square haw flakes...

This is my second attempt of 'do-it-myself' for layer cake type. Again, I choosed Chef Noraini Zakaria's recipe from her book 'Variasi Kek Lapis'. Not bad huh?

Let's Pizza

I made these pizzas on weekends after such a long time took a break from kneading work. The request for pizza was repeatedly been asked but I just don't listen to it. So, I prepared two different types of filling - Sardine with Brokoli and Sardine with Onion . Both types wonderfully delicious. No more having pizza in the hut but now we get it in the house... :-D

Sardine with Onion Pizza
Sardine with Brokoli Pizza

Glaze pizza base with gravy (tomato puree + chilli sauce + tomato sauce + oregano = mix well).
Spread mashed sardine on top, then sliced button mushrooms, chopped pineapple, diced capsicum and blanched brocolli. (Omit the brocolli for Sardine with Onion Pizza).
Sprinkle grated cheese (mozarella + cheddar).
Bake at 180 degree celcius for 12-15 minutes.
