Baby Ian’s fringe was cut until …like that. I actually meant to give a neat snip cos it almost reached his eyebrow…who knows… sigh 

 

I texted Hub and sent him the photo, and he replied, 

 FullSizeRender-2

 

Even most of my friends also commented Ugly.  :(

Pandan Butter Cake

1

Baked these pandan butter cakes for Zann again. It was an impromptu decision to bake the cake when the kids were asleep.  I increased the temperature abit in the last 10mins, which explained the brown top. I like brownish top. The previous attempt I find it too light.

Chocolate cookies with lemon curd cream

1_

Hub loves cookies. Zann loves cake. Myself, nothing? I only loves to bake… Baby Ian? Don’t know yet. Hah. Well I baked these cookies for fun, cos I craving for chocolate again. I used lemon to make the lemon curd cream cheese frosting. Chocolate cookies with lemony cream, I love this combo although I am not a cookie person. Baby Ian woke up again when I  did these cookies halfway. So stressed to shape them and pipe the cream out, when baby was crying for me.

软软的班兰牛油蛋糕 Pandan Butter Cake

use1

I seldom bake butter cake.  Ah..I prefer the light weight and soft chiffon cake more. Heh. But Hub likes butter cake, so I decided to finish the pandan leaves I had. I love the nice soft texture it turns out and the greeny colour. Nice…but I don’t dare to eat too much…lol

Butter Cake which was also my first cake when I started out baking 9 years ago, and it was also related to one unhappy incident. But then, I must really thank that person who really spurred me to bake more and better cakes since then….
