Sex in a pan (really?!)

It would be a lie if i tell you that i have nothing to do with the name of this dessert. In face, it is the reason why i tried it. Dessert itself look really nice to me but the name .. this name. I cannot help but wondering how this (layer-like) dessert have this name. May be, simply to have people attention which seem to work well, at least to me :D As i am so curious, i decided to make it. Hmmmm.. the name will fit if your are "pudding" lovers. The method of making this dessert is very easy to make. It might take a little bit of time as you have to fridge each layer before you can add  in next layer. Well, if you are interesting to know if this dessert fit its name. then .. make them will be the only way to find out! ;-) In case you did, please stop by to let me know what you think ^_^

Banana Cake & Chocolate frosting

It seem like a common problem in every single household to, somehow, have over ripe banana hanging in the kitchen once in a while. Then, instead of in a rush to eat them all in once or throw them away, as everybody else, i begin to search for some recipes. Yes, as an excuse to bake ;-) Any recipe that sound yummy and healthy to me. I usually choose recipes from their ingredients (and their pictures of course!! :D Nice pictures give me courage to TRY to do as nice!). This recipe i found have a very yummy pictures that immediately drive me to the kitchen and make it. Ingredients are simple and usually in the cabinet ready to be used. Lots of banana in the recipe, love it! I, by the way, substitute some ingredients to suit my family and it still turns out really nice and yummy. Happy! 

The texture of the cake is soft and moist (just moist, not dense not wet!). Taste of banana is just right, not more - not less. The frosting!!! This frosting is yummy! It gets along so well with the cake. They belong together!! I bake them in mini square pan to make it easy for single serve which is fun for kids as they can decorate their own "piece of cake" ^_^ Yes, enough talking. Let's bake now!

Carrot cake for Easter

Bunny Bunny Bunny, Everything turn into bunny and eggs shape during Easter time of the year. This year, i turn carrot (of course! what else can it be! bunny <> carrot! :D) cake into Bunny face and make fluffy fur out of vanilla butter cream frosting. Result? My daughter said it is too cute to eat -_-'' Yes, she is funny! This is such a great cake!!! Cake itself is so soft, moist and tasty - not too sweet. I changed recipe slightly to make it more healthy: raw sugar instead of white, low fat sour cream instead of buttermilk, a little more whole wheat and a little less of white, without forgetting "carrot" of course. Nut are very welcome in this cake. For the frosting part, carrot cake usually pair very well with "cream cheese frosting" but as my kids are not a big fan of cream cheese. So, vanilla butter cream would be my alternate choice. This tasty and oh-so-smooth vanilla butter cream is so good. It make everything come together so well. Next time, i might try to add a pinch of nutmeg. It might get a little kick to this carrot cake, don't you think? ;-) Last but not least, to finish the decorate, I use "sparkle gel decorating" for those cute little long ears, nose and eyes. Now, let see how we can make it happen, shall we ^_^

Son's Birthday cake

It has been so long since my last update on my blog. I am so sorry to all my lovely followers as well as my kind visitors that take their value time to stop by .. sorry for not being there updating my blog. I have been on a holidays, far from where i live right now. Back to my dearest country i missed so much. I have spend most of my time over there, half of the world away, from cold to hot, eating and eating and eating.. not so interesting i know .. It's just because i love the food from my country so much that i try to catch up what i missed from the whole year back. As the result, i gain LOTS of weight. No complaining!

I still didn't have a chance to bake any sweet as i (as well as my whole family :D) have to lose (6 kg!) some weights. So, i will simply just share you the pictures of Birthday Cake that i make for my family last year. Interesting? :D

This one is my son's 3rd Birthday cake. Yes, easy to guess that he must like spider man so much he wanted to eat him :D
