Chocolate Sponge Cake

DH said, after seeing this product, "Another cake..." (without much of a hint of enthusiam). What to do? Leftover so much whipping cream. This time it is a chocolate sponge.

Could not see the layer of cream sandwiched in between the layers, coz I was too tired and realised that I didn't wait till the cake cooled enough before the cream was added.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy belated Valentine's Day to everyone! Yes, this day should be for everyone (not only lovebirds) as everyone could celebrate it with their loved ones.

Baked a simple vanilla sponge cake on Valentine's Day and turned it into my very first cream cake! Looks amateur and simple. My elder 2 gals helped with the deco. They loved and couldn't keep their fingers off the whipped topping as it was light and slightly sweet - they even commented that the cream taste better than the cake :( . The sponge cake was sandwiched with strawberry jam and more whipped cream. The gals had a lot of suggestions on how to deco the cake, but luckily we could come to a collective decision to have hearts and more hearts on the cake.

Cupcakes and such

Here's last night's bake: Cupcakes in various flavours (vanilla, double chocolate, chocolate chips; coffee, orange)

It is still the Chinese New Year, and there are still goodies in the kitchen. This year I also made cornflake cookies, which the children loved. Even their daddy liked it (I think) coz he finished everything in one night.
This zebra cake (more marble cake) was done long time back but didn't get the chance to post it.
