Fund raising

I did my small bit to help the flood victims. I just can't imagine losing all your belongings and having your property damaged, must be hard.

To those who helped buy my cakes for charity, thank you. In total 130 boxes of either cake or cupcakes were sold. Here's a sneak of what each box contained. Some pics didn't turn out well... dang!

Anyways, it was either :

I provided some cakes & cupcakes to a couple of delis to sample. Of course I only got good feedbacks *wink, wink*! One of them even sold them to 'test market', said it went in a flash! However, they already do sell cakes... so that's a NG. I'm still waiting to hear from the other deli. (Reply my SMS Paul!)

Chocolate Fudge cake

Mum turned 77 on the 5th. The family were getting together on the 6th for a scrumptious chinese dinner. And I thought, "Hey, this my chance to try out a new cake recipe!" Since I'm still unhappy with my chocolate cakes, why not make a good old fashioned chocolate cake.

I concentrated so much on how the cake would eventually taste and stressing that the choc fudge frosting wouldn't withhold the afternoon heat, I didn't pay much attention to the decoration.

Mum, I made you 10 years younger (look at cake pic again)! How truly embarrassing! Being 77, my Mum really didn't noticed nor cared. Of course, the others has a good laugh at my expense!

On an up note... I got the 2 thumbs-up from all 8 grandchildren (ranging from 2-21 years old) on the cake! They were the only ones not too stuffed to have dessert.

Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake

This was really, REALLY good, trust me! Many thanks to Audrey Cooks for the recipe. And the best part... no baking required! Lovely New Zealand strawberries helped loads with the zing!

We were too eager to tuck in I forgot to take a picture of the full cake. Only remembered when it reached this stage!

Here's to a great 2007


What's the best way to start the new year? With cupcakes of course! Carrot & raisin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting topped with peach slices.... mmmmmm!
