so in my previous post , i showed you guys the process of baking a rainbow cake :D
and who is it for , you may wonder ? well , it’s for my lovely pretty pretty friend Vinn Kee !!
her birthday was really close to our final exams so we couldn’t really celebrate for her but since i have a passion for baking and i always find time for baking , i decided to bake her a cake and surprise her !
her birthday is actually on the 19th of September , but since i baked the cake on the 17th and didn’t want it to go stale , i brought it to school the next day , which was 18th :D
preparing my beloved rainbow cake in the morning ! as you can see , i had to tear off the lid of the box cos my cake was too tall HAHAHAH .
when i arrived in school i was shocked cos i didn’t expect the birthday girl to be in school so early D: obviously i couldn’t be seen with the cake right !! hahah so with the help of Paggie and Yee Lyn , we secretly brought the cake to the canteen to keep in the fridge .
during break the rest of the girls distracted Vinn Kee and kept her in class whilst me , Vic and Paggie went to get the cake .
lighting the cake before going in !! thanks to Paggie who brought the candles , Happy Birthday sign and cake knife :p
the baker and the cake … and because catwang is too mainstream hahaha .
and then we went in !!
video is recorded by Paggie !! my voice (if you can recognize) sounded soooo gay cos i was having a terrible sore throat :(( the super high-pitched voice is Victoria , the one yelling “NOOOO” is Paggie cos the wind from the fan was extinguishing the candles and she was desperately trying to save them ahhaha , and the one saying “DON’T CUT YET !” is Jasmine :p
Vinn Kee cutting the cake after she blew the candles !!
one of me and her ! <3
as i mentioned before my cake was quite tall so it was kinda hard to cut through it D:
Cutter Chiang giving cake-cutting a go ! HAHAHAH
anyway Jasmine the pro cake-cutter finally did us all a favour ! phew !
BEHOLD … MY PRECIOUS . so so happy with the results and how the colours turned out <3 <3 and i was so worried that it wouldn’t taste good but everyone loved it and we finished off almost the whole cake in school itself ! :9
happy birthday again darling !
the FAB girls , minus Melati cos she came to school late :(
FAB girls + the Wordsworth trio ! Syazwana , Alyssa and Jasmine :D
playing around with Hannah’s fish-eye lens hehehe :p
and last collage with Vinn Kee ! :*
so glad that our surprise plan worked and Vinn Kee was happy with the cake !! :D every girl’s 16th should be special and i’m glad Vinn Kee’s one was too :p
hey guys , this is yet another scheduled post :p
few weeks ago after i came back from Penang , i decided to bake again ! this time , it was for my friend , Vinn Kee’s birthday :) and this time i decided to bake a whole cake instead of my usual cupcakes . it was my first time baking a full cake so i didn’t know what to expect and kept my fingers crossed the whole time .
so here i am , to share the process of baking a rainbow cake .
here’s the recipe i followed , except i added a tad bit more milk and also added in vanilla essence : http://www.thepinkwhisk.co.uk/2011/09/how-to-make-a-rainbow-cake.html
my ingredients + my trusty baking tools !! super love my electronic mixer and electronic scale ahahahah , they’re my best friends :p
oh yeah and also my pretty pretty food colouring ! they cost a hole in a pocket despite their pretty outlook , one small bottle was RM5.50 </3
after adding in the eggs and flour …
now here’s the fun part … colouring the batter !
it was super duper fun squeezing out the food colouring and then mixing it and watching the plain-coloured cake batter come to live in vibrant colours ! :))
did that to all the batters !
then add them to the cake pans and off to the oven ! i baked them two layers at a time for 19 mins and they were perfect !
and plop out of the cake pan ! the colours are sooo gorgeous <3 anyway it took some skill to get the cake out of the cake pan because they were so fragile DD:
so for the next two layers , i decided to line the cake pans with baking sheets . not a good idea though …
my turquoise and yellow layer came out with a weird shape :(( so for the remaining 2 layers i didn’t use the baking sheets anymore hahaha
so after all the layers are done , its time to trim the layers ! the recipe said to leave it in the fridge for a few hours before trimming it , but who cares ? haha
after trimming all the layers , it was time to arrange the cakes in order !!!! here i made a GIF :
made the buttercream frosting after that . the recipe gave instructions for cream cheese frosting but i had no cream cheese so i made buttercream ahahah . also i didn’t measure the amount of ingredients cos i was so lazy , i YOLO-ed and followed my instincts and surprisingly my buttercream turned out okay ! :D
people probably love frosting cakes , but at this point i was so tired and it was just so troublesome frosting the entire cake :(
THEN .. THE MOST UNEXPECTED THING HAPPENED . my cake stand was at the edge of the table and i was busy adding the remaining frosting to the cake and then .. AND THEN !!!!
but anyway thankfully it was just a chair and not the floor so it was savable , phew !
after much chaos in the cake-falling event ,
super satisfied with the outcome !! :D i was so eager to see the inside of the cake but obviously i couldn’t :(
in total , this cake took 6 hours to prepare , including the mishaps and cleaning up , but all was well since i had my self-proclaimed holiday :D
next post will be the cake-cutting in lieu with Vinn Kee’s birthday !! stay tuned ! :D
hi guys ! <3
this is a scheduled post for i am currently preparing for my finals right now and cannot be blogging anytime soon , but fret not , for i have prepared and scheduled a few posts for your entertainment ! :D
Since Aug 13 was a Friday and coincidentally my school’s Merdeka Carnival , i decided to ponteng and go to Penang after school on the Thursday before :D all was well since Monday was Malaysia Day so i could spend a good 4 days in Penang :)
also , i inserted a lot of collages in this post , otherwise the post will be too freaking long and will take forever to post :X
had a mini potluck session in school on Thursday morning !
packed the Oreo cupcakes i made for Zelyn in a Styrofoam box with some packets of ice and surprisingly it managed to withstand the 4hours+ car ride ! :D and off to my home town !
stopped by Ipoh to eat the famous Lou Wong beansprout chicken ! haven’t had this in years :DDDD and it was surprisingly cheap , all these for only RM20 !
when i arrived home in Penang it was really late so i just conked out . the next day i went to visit CLS and gave Zelyn + the gang the cupcakes ! then i went to my other house to visit wan en hahaha
dad’s patient gave him these super cute fondant cupcakes and i just had to eat one :9
also brought my Oreo cupcakes for the fam and after my family tasted it , they said it was really good and they then had the sudden urge to bake ! hahahaah so we went to buy supplies and …
we baked red velvet cupcakes !!! super proud to say that i’m the baker of the family and the boss of baking hahaha . without me , they wouldn’t be able to bake these :p
anyway this recipe was super delicious and i would definitely make these again someday ^^
here it is : http://thebakingbiatch.blogspot.com/2013/04/red-velvet-cupcakes.html
and that marked the end of my day since nothing much happened .. meh .
the next day i went to Gurney !
ate my favourite macarons in the cinema while watching Pawn Shop (it sucked btw) and went for chilli pan mee at Times Square ! Super Kitchen still has the best chilli pan mee D:
and the next day i went to Gurney AGAIN after church for Zelyn’s 16th Birthday ! i wouldn’t call it a party … it was more like a get-together but overall it was fun ! :D
