makin gumuk sia ni....

This was actually my second attempt of baking cake...and i failed, and felt very much like a failure since I was only baking an INSTANT CAKE....I didnt start from scratch...not because I didnt know how to...but I didnt have the time....because the chocolate moist cake was supposed to be Ramone's birthday cake....and we only managed to placed the cake on the table for ramone to blow the candles at 12 midnight or maybe slightly over 12...hehe...oopss...this was all the whip cream fault....ahahha ...whip cream pula kna tuduh...


The ingrediets...2 boxes of INSTANT 'super moist Chocolate Cake', eggs, and butter, Milk/plain water, Vannilla flavour(optional)...



mixed


baked at 180 degree celcius for 45 minutes....

the cakes turned out fine....


Now the whipcream...this was when i was doing it all wrong....

I used 4 cups of whipping cream and 24 ounces of chocolate( shreded/chips), and heated with the lowest heat...i waited and waited and waited....but the cream never thicken....

I know whipping cream is supposed to be whipped first....but HEY i followed the instruction.....I FOLLOWED EXACTLY WHAT MARTHA STEWART Instructed....but i failed....There must be something wrong right? OH whatever.....maybe i use a different chocolate instead of using NESTLE Chocolate chips....

mmm...the cake was nice...but I only ate a piece of cake because it wass tooo sweet...but believe me It was nice....NICE....hahah...

We blew the candles by ourselves....we were kind of being stood up by our BIG BRO...he never show up on his birthday...because he said "I DONT CELEBRATE BIRTHDAY"....huh....so we sang and recorded it and sent it to him through 'sound message'....
The deco at the side of the cake is JK's idea...to make it looks more presentable.... haha...


My first attempt was a few years ago...I actually steamed marble cake(START FROM SCRATCH!)...but it was a failure as well because it didnt really came out as a Marble cake...not really...but it was a nice not-really-a-marble-cake cake...quite nice ...oh did i tell u, me and clara did try to make cookies before too(START FROM SCRATCH!)...last last last Christmas...which i don't remember what year of Christmas...and U know what.....keras la mau pengsan....but the taste was there...quite nice you know...eatable cookies....next time we try again...it will be YUMMY....and in no time..people will queing up on our doorstep to buy our cookies...dont tell me i cannot do it...I can....haha... what a daydream...

A day after...JK baked a carrot cake...with LK and my help a little here and there...the topping not a success though either(done by JK and Nicole)...but for first timer without any guidance from someone who really have the skill, they deserve a compliment....
.....me and Nicole baked a 150g Carrot Cake(START FROM SCRATCH!)...nice....but without frosting...
and the next day....JK LK me and Nicole baked a carrot cake(actually done by JK) and a pumpkin+carrot(pumpkin+carrot was JK's idea) not-really-muffin-like muffin ....one of the best...with a successful Vanilla topping.....
