Baking of Kiddies’ Dream~!

Because of the haze again (!!!), even NDP practice was cancelled on Saturday! Argh! I was so looking forward to our first combined rehearsal!!! D:

Luckily I didn’t have a boring Saturday in the end because I already had a back up plan – baking! But since Lyn was also looking for some activities and outdoor activity is a no-no, I figured that we could bake together~

But before that, finally tried Jollibee with her! Surprisingly, the queue moved pretty fast! (:

Surprised that they even serve spaghetti there! But my favourite is still the sausage bun that I ordered; the chicken was okayyyyyy~

Shopped a little around Lucky Plaza since I had never really walked around the place before. Chanced upon nice tibits there! Hehe. Eat and eat and eat~

Petit Doughnut from Lyn!

Then off to my house to bake~! But before that, we dropped by NTUC to get some other ingredients and then this 2 gigantic owls caught our attention!

Why the sudden urge to bake? You mean ask. That’s because I happened to find this cookbook in office that contains lots of recipes of yummy-looking cakes! It was used in one of the shoots years ago and has been collecting dust in office since then, so I decided to put it into good use! 😀

I wanna bake sooo many things! But baking is also quite an expensive pursuit (so many ingredients to buy!) and each recipe takes a few hours to bake, especially when I don’t have proper equipments like mixer, so we had to do it the manual way~ Grew some muscles as a result! Haha!

My little helper~

But because the size of my baking tray is much smaller, the cake somehow raised a lot! And it started to look a bit … obscene ugly =/

Putting it back to continue baking~

And then the outcome looked even more obscene!!! LOL! This was actually after we tried to salvage it x.x

But Lyn taught me a trick used in bakeries, which is to cut off the ugly top since we are going to put icing on top to cover it up! I was like, “Okay! Let’s do that! If not how are we going to present to Facebook?!” LOLOL.

Time for the last part – top it off with icing coat!

And ta-duh~! We are done with our Kiddies’ Dream! 😀

Looks not bad right! But the chocolate icing coat is supposed to solidify but somehow it doesn’t… Other than that, the cake actually tastes quite nice! Not I self-praise but the cake is really pretty soft! (:

Cutting a share for Lyn to bring home and also a piece for Chii Hian to try! That’s the good (or maybe bad) thing about being my neighbour – I loveeeee to share my food and you will be my guinea pig! xD

So that marks the end of our baking day! Off to meet Clique for a late night drink (carrot juice) and short chit-chat session; a simple Saturday spent (:
