Pineapple Tarts

Finally finally this year I am back into baking my pineapple tarts after a year's break! This Chinese New Year is too near to Xmas so didn't manage to start my baking early. Nonetheless, still squeezed out the time that I have and was quite proud of myself as this is also the first time I try cooking the pineapple myself instead of buying ready made ones.

Turn out was good, my girls and hubby all commented that it is nice. So encouraging, definitely will be going to make all self made pineapple tarts in future!


Didn't have a chance to try out cupcake.. the chance finally came when I decided to bake for my girl's birthday party. This is my first cupcake try.

Am pretty confident of the turnout, thus I finally decided to bake cupcakes for my girl's birthday. To make things easier for me, I bought the cupcake rings and used it as decoration.

All my past baking

Was too tied up for the past months. Would like to share with all what I baked during my maternity leave.

The chocolate fudge and strawberry mousse cake that I baked for my nephew and niece's birthday.

My First Tries - Strawberry Shortcake and Chocolate Fudge

Strawberry Shortcake
After trying the strawberry mousse cake, and upon request by my husband for a strawberry shortcake, decided to give it a try, using the sponge cake recipe that I used for strawberry mousse for this strawberry shortcake.

The result is good.. even my brother thought that I bought it. However, I will still need to improve on my presentation of the cake.

Chocolate Fudge Cake
I have all along wanted to try baking a chocolate fudge cake and thank you for the recipe that I found at Kitchen Capers, I decided to give it a go.

I was too eager to let my family try the cake thus did not manage to take a picture of the whole cake. However, I think this fudge cake is easier to smoothen than the strawberry shortcake. Nonetheless, though the cake turns out well, personally I think my area for improvement is still the presentation of the cake.

I Am Back!

So excited to be back into baking.. after such a long break! My bro became my first guinea pig as I decided to make him a tiramisu cake for his birthday. I was so excited yet also worried that I had lost some of my baking skills that the cake will not be nice.. thank god, the comments was good, except that I need to add in more kahlua. Hmm, but think I need to improve on my decoration skills also.

Mad about Decorated Cookies

After giving fondant a try, I decided to try decorating using royal icing again. This time round, I managed to get a darker shade of pink and the colour is able to stand out against the white. Initially I wanted to try out christmas red colour, however, to achieve the colour, it requires a lot of colouring, hence I gave up.
With the blue leftover from my previous session, I have gingerbread girls and boys.
Having practiced so much, believe I am quite set for Christmas!
