Weekend Treat: Avocado Cake

Avocado Pound Cake

Enjoy It~


Hi Everyone

It has been raining and the temperature has dropped lately. It is time to turn on your oven and bake.

My main ingredient is the "Avocado" today. Paul is not a fan of the avocado because of its distinguish taste. I think it is a good idea to disguise it into the cake. Don't you think it looks like the green tea cake (that Paul loves by the way).

Instead of using the loaf pan tin as instructed, I used the bundt cake pan. The cake is crisp outside but tender inside. The most important thing is that Paul couldn't believe it's made of "Avocados". Paul loves it. It's not that I am not sharing this fantastic cake with our dear friends. Although I reduced the sugar amount by half but it's still too overly sweet for my liking.

They are so many flavours for using avocados. I love to combine my beloved chocolate with the avocado next time. Well, avocado is good for your heart and with a lot of benefits. Until next time, thank you for stopping by.

Happy baking~

Car Cake - Toyota

My First Car Cake

Congratulations, Paul
Hi Everyone

I am so excited to share this car cake with you. Thank you for following my steps of making it via my Facebook. The cake is made for Paul who has been working very hard for the last five years to become a “Gold Executive Mentor”; a highest reward and ranking as a car salesman. I decided to surprise him with a car cake.

This is my first car cake you could tell. Instead of sculpting it from the normal cake shaped pans, I used a Wilton 3D car cake pan to create the shape of the car. Oh yeah, he is selling “Toyota”. * The flavour is what Wilton suggested a “Chocolate Butter Cake” but I found it was very crumbly while cutting it. I think I will be using the mud cake next time. Then I covered and decorated it with fondant. The total look was okay and I forgot to make the rain wipers. lol

The car is slightly leaning to the left because I moved to the cake board from the plate I was working on. Shouldn’t have done it but the holes to place the wheels were too small. I had to lift up the whole cake to push the wheels in. =’=

Dearest Paul

Congratulations on your achievement. I know it’s a career of frustration and stresses. I know your “CAN DO” attitude and warmest smiles can bring you to the top of the world. I will be here with and for you.

God bless you!

Happy Easter


Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Buttercream Filling
Hi Everyone

Easter break is coming. I hope everyone has plans to celebrate it with your beloved family and friends. To our household, it is time to bake a cake and bring it to picnic. Yes, Paul only has Easter Friday off so we cannot go on holiday. 

This is a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream. I am definately under the influence of seeing chocolate eggs and treats everywhere. Sorry that I don't have any Easter decorations on the cake. This is just for Paul and I this year.

~~
May the spirit of hope that Easter brings;
Help you find contentment in little things.
& restore your faith in the Lord above;
Who gave his life for the ones he loves.

Happy Easter

Thank you for stopping by. See you next time.

Weekend Treat: Cheesecake

A Slice of Heaven


Baked To Perfection

Hi Everyone

I hope you had a lovely weekend. During the week, I have baked this creamy cheesecake for a bit of sugar boost. I have to say, the sour taste of the cheese and the sweet taste of the sugar were well balanced in this cake. The base was made of the digestive biscuits.

I served the cheesecake with whipping cream and a cherry. Although Paul doesn't like cheese but I believe he is in love again.

Thank you for stopping by. See you next time.
Happy Baking~
