Carrot Cake

Have made a new carrot cake recipe on last Saturday, I made 2 trays, 1 with the cheese topping and the other without, as not many of my family members like to eat the cheese. Overall thinks the carrot cake quite nice, except my little niece do not like it, maybe is because of the cinnamon and clove smell.

Light Cheese cake

Made this Light cheese cake on last Sunday. It can be said quite successful, but just feel it is a bit miost. This is the 2nd cheese cake I made on that day. The first cheese cake turns out too soft, maybe I shouldn't immediate take out from the tray, so the second one I let it cool down first before taking out and it turns out quite nice. So learn from my lesson, maybe for cheesecake should not immediately take out, should let it set first, if not too soft to handle.

My trip to Colmar Tropical

I went to Colmar Tropical also known as Berjaya Hill on last friday - 08/08/08. It is a 3 days 2 nights trip to Colmar Tropical and Berjaya Times Sqare (KL). I have always wanted to go Colmar Tropical, after a few years, this year I finally got a chance to go there. The place is not big, can be said quite small actually, there are a Japanese Village, Botanical Garden, Rabbit Park and a Horse Trail, other then the Horse Trail, I went to the other 3 places, nothing much to do there too. It is quite ok for a night stay, if staying for long sure will get bored ^_^

Kaya Swirl Cupcake

Today I have made a cupcake base on newspaper recipe, it is call Kaya Swirl Cupcakes. It is actually a very simple cupcake, you just have to put some kaya on top of the cupcake and swirl it in using a toothpick. After making a tray, I decided to do something different with the remaining batter, so I put some chocolate rice on top of the cupcake, then it become chocolate rice cupcake ^_ ^. It is actually quite soft, and cause the top coat with Kaya, therefore the top more sweeter. The kaya I used is light brown colour, therefore, can't see the swirl very clearly, if use those green colour kaya maybe will look nicer. If use colouring to do some pattern or write word on the cupcake, don't know will it look more nicer leh?
