I am back with a whole new layout, and whole new idea for 2012! In case some are already starting to wonder why I've been lying low and not updating my blog too much, I figured I am still more of a baker than a writer.
However, I will still be updating this site with new creations that I churn out from time to time.
Friends around me already know that I've embarked on a new little project, allowing me to hone my skills in my passion, and hopefully be able to accumulate some earnings to upgrade my kitchen equipment in time to come. So my next aim is to save whatever token amount I receive from my custom bakes to buy my very own Kitchen Aid! I have already been eyeing them for a long long time, but am too much of a cheapskate to buy it yet.
I have to declare that I am far from professional, and there are times where I am not really satisfied by what I create, for example this cake below:
Notice that the colours were already bleached from the smarties after a night in the fridge, and that the frosting didn't turn out as smooth as I wanted. I made a butterscotch filling between chocolate sponge, but I also didn't get to see it after it was cut, so hopefully it turned out fine. Well, at least now I know what not to do the next time!
I hand-made this little box because for some reason, its not easy to find cake-boxes in this small town, and I had to do like a commercial bulk order if I wanted proper ones. Anyways I thought it was kind of personalised and sincere to make one myself.
And here's another cake that I made for a friend, the first one that I got paid to be exact, and I was quite happy with it. It was simple, and elegant.
I have lots more to improve, and there are lots of nitty gritties to learn about baking. So follow me as I "show off" my creations here and do support me if you can! :)
