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~
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~
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!
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.
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
