Happy Mothers' Day & Masterbaker rolled into one!

Firstly here's wishing all mothers a Happy Mothers' Day!

after a whirlwind of baking activities the past few days. I'm back folks! finally got a good rest after days of slaving away in the kitchen. Settling in with a full mind of plans to offer sets in the future for upcoming festivites. Perhaps this would help immensely to ease the work load. So before i go catch some eye-shut. Here are some pictures of the lovely bakes I've done for mothers day. Not all, but a few that i have managed to capture on camera. Not easy considering the sugared and buttered fingers. Thanks to all the lovelies who have ordered from me. All your compliments and praises have made the sleepless nights all worth while!


Second agenda, enter my first masterbaker entry! and here's introducing the good ole' vanilla cupcake. Trust me, do not fooled by its harmless exterior, biting into one laden with addictive vanilla swissmeringe buttercream, i'm sure you'll be blasted off to seventh haven straight away.

Recipe for Vanilla Buttercake (adapted from women's weekly)

90g butter softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
2 eggs
1 cup(150 self raising flour)
8 tablespoon milk
  • preheat the oven to 160 degrees celcius. Line the cupcake trays with liner.
  • Beat butter, extract, sugar, eggs, flour and milk to saucepan and just combined. Beat mixture in electric mixer on low speed until ingredients are just incorporated. Beat until mixture is pale in color.
  • Divide into cases and bake for 20mins.

yum!!! swoons, warm cupcakes being served up immediately. hardly anyone can say no to one of these!

and finally, photos of some other baking orders i had to fulfill.

cookies for mum. Dark chocolate Valrhona heart-shaped cookies frosted a lovely tinge of pink and purple.

and oreo cheesecake for a wife who's birthday coincidentally falls on mothers day. now i was thinking, that would be way too easy for the children in future. 2 in 1!
and finally, more cuppies! a fine mixture of chocolate chipped banana cupcakes with whipped ganache frosting and Cappuccino cupcakes with vanilla cream cheese frosting ordered by a lady for her sweet colleagues. *smilez*


to end off the post, here's a lovely version of Stop and Stare by One republic. Enjoy...

Stop and stare

I think I'm moving but I go nowhere

Yeah I know that everyone gets scared

But I've become what I can't be, oh

Stop and stare

You start to wonder why you're 'here' not there

And you'd give anything to get what's fair

But fair ain't what you really need

Oh, can u see what I see

next up: Lady Iron Chef's Food event at OChaCha. Its gonna be a green tea feast!
