Corn Pudding Cake

It seems ages I did not make Corn Pudding Cake, until I received a text message from my niece, Farhana, "Makcik, I missed your Corn Pudding Cake, my birthday is coming soon.....(I can imagined her eyes was fluttering)" sort of asking me politely what she wanted for her birthday.

This Corn Pudding Cake is a bit of time consuming and must "have a high degree of patience", but it is delicious and refreshing. The pudding have to be stirred constantly under a low heat, until it slowly thickened and the aroma of the corn......mmm......indescribable. If its heated abruptly, the pudding will curdle and under-cook. The original recipe uses milk but I change to santan (coconut milk). The taste is wallah....delicious.....but you can keep only 2 days in room temperature (tropical) and only one week in the fridge.

The Corn Pudding Cake is covered with fresh cream and dessicated coconut.

Boat Cake

I made several mistake when decorating this cake....maybe I was not feeling well at that time........


Number Cake

This Number 5 cake with 2 Ultramans actually a short notice order. That was why the cake board was extra large for this cake.

Chocolate Fudge Cake for Hari Raya

This Chocolate Fudge Cake only popular amongst my regular client. Most of them order for their Hari Raya "Open House". This Chocolate Fudge Cake uses bitter chocolate as one of the ingredient.

Selamat Hari Raya Puasa

Syawal had nearly reached the end, so I can still wish all my blog reader a Happy Eid..... 

After my long holidays, I felt “time” has not been kind to me, 24 hours per day seems insufficient for me to do all the things that I needed to accomplish. I’ve been helping a few of my friends to set up their own blog which were very time consuming, however the results were very self-satisfying.

This Hari Raya was my first year without my mother, technically I did not really celebrate Hari Raya for the past 4 years since she got a stroke. However, this year, in my opinion my Hari Raya was quite cheerful due to the presence of my niece’s children, 3 years and 6 months old baby.

First Syawal, I received a sad news that one of my office colleague (Ms M.A.) had passed away due to cancer, I had met her six years ago before she’s decided to do her third major operation, to remove a tumor. Since I had a similar surgery, she had asked me for some advise, then I knew she’s not getting any better........She’s informed all her friends that she’s had overcomed cancer after going through chemotherapy . Physically she’s look normal and seems recovering. She had a very strong will to live. She told me all she wished for was to see her youngest son celebrate his 17 birthday....her wish was granted and lived 8 years after her first major operation,  I guessed God was kind to give her “time” that she was a bonus for her, Al-fatihah....

March 2005, I've just recuperating from a major surgery,

 in front was Ms M.A.
