Green tea cookies & Durian mousse cake

People who know me definitely know that I am not a fan of durians. In fact, I can't even stand the smell of durians! My hubby, on the other hand loves durian. Thus, to satisfy his cravings, I agreed to make him a durian mousse cake. I also baked some green tea cookies so as to try out my new cookie letterpress set.

Rich milky cake

I made a blunder in my batter today. Guess what? I forgot to add in the baking powder! I only realized my mistake after my cake was in the oven for about 5mins. Kekeke.... I was worried & wondered how my

cake will turn out eventually. But I convinced myself it should be alright since the eggs were beaten to peak form? I supposed it will also make my cake 'rise' somehow. I kept peeping at my oven to monitor the progress of my cake & I was finally relieved when my living room was filled with an aroma of cake. Having a Type A personality, I couldn't wait for the cake to cool down completely. Instead, I sliced them & sampled it soon after taking a few shots of the whole cake. The cake tasted great, it was soft & rich in taste. I simply love it. *^_^*

Burgers for dinner!

I am running out of ideas what to cook for dinner. I guess that's what happen if you are cooking 5-6times in a week. Looking at the ingredients in my fridge, I decided to make some burgers instead! I made a

total of 5 mini burgers & 8 spicy shrimps buns. I put tomatoes, capsicum, omelette & pan fried salmon in the burgers. I supposed my burgers are healthier compared to those sold outside. ;P

Happy Birthday !

I am having my last NSL lesson with my students tomorrow. Time really flies,

I could still remember my first day of sch with these bunch of 'monkeys' & now 1 semester is gone. How I wish I can teach them again in Semester 2!
I promised to have a mini celebration with them on the last day

of class cum celebrate one of my student's (Roy) birthday. I made a total of 28 cupcakes & a 7" cake (Tri-marble cake) covered with fondant. Happy 17th Birthday & we love you Roy! *^_^*

P/S: (Last pic) Our dear birthday boy cutting the cake after we all sang him the birthday song.

C is for Cathy....

I bet no woman can resist the temptation of buying new clothes, shoes or even BAGS! Me too! Retail therapy always improves my mood *^_^*

Having a new 'chanel' bag is definitely not enough, I need more bags to match my other outfits. Since pink is my favourite colour, I decided to make a pinky white sporty bag.

Yeah, I know I am not a pro in sculpturing & there are flaws in my sporty bag. Do pardon me as this is only my 2nd

attempt in making my own handbag cake.

My new 'Chanel bag'

Wow~ I finally got a limited edition Chanel bag of my own! Yeah~ take a closer look.... this bag is actually a chocolate cake covered with fondant. Kekeke *^_^*

All thanks to Anna for her patience & guidance. Without your help, I guess its a 'mission

impossible' to complete this cute fondant bag.

Happy Nurses' Day !

"Nurses dispense comfort, compassion & caring without even a prescription" ~ Val Saintsbury

I have never regret choosing nursing as my career. For the past 11yrs+, I truly enjoy this diverse & dynamic career. Nurses are caregivers, patient educators, advocates, researchers.... Wow... We are 'Superman' & 'Superwoman' *^_^*

Today is an important occasion for us to recognize & pay tribute to all nurses. I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my friends, colleagues & nurses all over the world, "Happy Nurses' Day"!
