Princesses Cake for Caitlyn






Made this sweet Princesses cake couple weeks ago for my son's music class classmate. Every little girl loves to be a pretty princess and one day would find her prince...... Just like the recent Royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. What a beautiful fairy tale. That makes me wish how nice if I have a girl too, which I could have more reasons to make her princess cake.  :)

This should be my last post before my long break. And shall hope I can get connected while overseas and update my blog a little bit.

Lo Mai Gai . 糯米鸡


Since very young, I always like Lo Mai Gai. Never knew one day I would be able to make myself and family this Lo Mai Gai. I must thank Sonia ( Nasi Lema Lover) for sharing this delicious recipe. Hubby had never really been a fan of Lo Mai Gai, but he find this homemade one taste really good and he started to like it! The great thing about this is it took very little time to prepare. I often think that this is something very complicated and would take a long processing time before I could enjoy one.  I love to make this at home cause it's less oily!






As my helper had gone back home for her 3 week break, I started to plan to make something that I could freeze in the freezer and just heat it up for a quick and fuss-free meal since I am trying to avoid too many washing after each meal. Lazy me......... and of course I am also busy with my packing.

Chocolate Cake with Ganache Topping







A friend of mine came back from France and we were invited to her new place for lunch so I baked this  classic chocolate cake to bring over as our dessert, also her two little princesses like chocolate cakes! It's  simple to make yet quite a flavourful cake to enjoy. We had it together with some fresh strawberries and it was heaven!!! I never been really a chocolate person, but yesterday's experience had changed my opinion a little towards chocolate cakes.

I used the recipe from Martha Stewart's and I will stick to this as an when I crave or need a chocolate cake. And with this I shall join this month's Aspiring Bakers #7 Chocolate Delight ( May 2011) before I go for my long holidays. As I know I won't have time after come back before the month ends!


Ganache:

75ml Double Cream
75g  Dark Chocolate (Chopped)


Method:

1. Boil double cream in a pot till with low flame till it starts to boil.

2. Pour boiled cream to chopped chocolate in a glass bowl, and gentle stir till all chocolate is melted.

3. Pour ganache over cooled cook and let it set. Chill the cake in the fridge before serving.
