Oreo Mango Japanese Cheese Cake



Time flies, Christmas has passed. Hope everyone had a great Christmas!

Specially baked this Oreo Mango Japanese Cheese Cake for my beloved husband who pays me the visit this Christmas in Brisbane. I'm indeed in cloud nine and designed for him - his favorite Japanese cheese cake with fresh mango mousse toppings, surrounded it with Oreo cookies & decorate it ribbon. At least, I baked this for ourselves for this Christmas even though i'm quite tired after baking all those Christmas bakes orders in past few days ago.

This bake is my continuous creation from my previous Japanese Cotton Soft Cheese Cake with Strawberry Jam (Paris). Enjoy a slice and cheers.



Angry Birds Seasons: Angry Birds Christmas Cupcakes



6 of these adorable Angry Birds Christmas Cupcakes are specially baked for Lisa Wan's nieces & nephew who are great fans of Angry Birds. She is really doted them so much, and bringing these all the way from Brisbane to Sydney today.

Looking forward to see the photo of them eating these exclusive cupcakes soon. I do hope they will enjoy my masterpiece :)  Look at the Angry Pig who dressed up as Reindeer, it looks like wearing the pink skirt as well.



Forever Friends Xmas Swiss Roll



Forever Friends!! I guess most of the girls will know it for sure. I'm a bit surprised some of the Australians do not know what's Forever Friends. Anyway, this is my first time to make Forever Friends icing figure. It took me about 2 hours to finish the whole bear, indeed quite challenging especially making its facial expression. Thank God  when I first shown to my friends, they do recognized "It's Forever Friends" (not just the normal teddy bear).

Specially dedicated this swiss roll to Anthea & her family who will pay her a visit to Brisbane tomorrow for this Xmas.


Xmas Cupcakes



"Oh no, few more days to Christmas"!! In Australia, Christmas & New Year are really big celebration over here. Believe it or not, there is a Christmas Parade happening every night here.

Back to topic, I've specially designed these Xmas Cupcakes for order. You may notice one of my Hankerie's mascot is one of it too! The pink Hankerie! See my Xmas Cupcakes tower that I built up too below:

Christmas Cake Pops: Holiday cheers on a Stick



1 more week to go for Christmas. It's only matters of time now to prepare all the Christmas bakes. Cake pops — crumbled cake and frosting creamed together, chilled, then dipped into colorful candy melt and decorated. They are the fantastic idea for the Christmas party as people love that they don't have to make a huge commitment. Just a few bites and you've satisfied your urge for something sweet in the party. In terms of the preparation effort, cake pops indeed consume plenty of time.

In the Christmas party, you may expect cutesy pops shaped like a Santa hat to be this season's must-have treats.


Give it a bite & you can see what's inside my cake pop - the moist chocolate cake.


Santa Claus Hat Brownies



These adorable Santa Clause Hat Brownies are easy enough to make your own. What you need to have are only the brownies, fresh strawberries & frosting. Decorate it just like Santa Claus Hat, the best idea that you could do it together with you kids for Xmas party preparation.

Angry Birds Xmas Log Cake (Bûche de Noël)



"Ho! Ho! Ho!! Merry Christmas", Angry Green Pig Santa Claus wishes all the Angry Birds & including yourself! If you know me well, I will definitely design Angry Birds Cake for each of the unique season. For this Xmas, I've spent 2 days to design, bake, made Angry Birds icing figures, assemble & decorate this Angry Birds Xmas Log Cake. It is called Bûche de Noël in French, one of many traditional cakes baked at Christmas which origins from France. The name of this recipe literally translates as "Christmas log," referring to the traditional Yule log burned centuries past. The ingedients suggest the cake is most likely a 19th century creation. That's when thinly rolled sponge cakes filled with cream and covered with chocolate icing. 

This Angry Birds Xmas Log Cake is baked for an exclusive order of Xmas Barbecue party at Brisbane (Australia) yesterday. There are 2 kids and more adults like Angry Birds crazily! The most classic moment was the Baby Lucas's expression when seeing the Angry Birds cake for the first time. It was exactly the same expressions with the Miri's orphans and the kids in the long house that I visited last time. Too bad, it only happened for a short while, not enough time to capture the video!

Baking for Charity: How to Use Your Talents for Good

Most of the time, we don’t bake for ourselves, but to put smiles on other people’s faces. You may write everything down on your grocery list maker, prepare the dough, pop everything in the oven, and decorate a cookie to perfection, but if you don’t see another person enjoy it, then the whole process was in vain. That’s why charity and baking go together like peanut butter and chocolate, because baking is, essentially, about giving to others. So how can use baking to help others? Here are some tips to help you get involved with baking for charity:

-  Find a feeding program in your area

There are tons of feeding programs all over the world. In Australia alone, there is Children’s Charity, Ruiru Feeding Programme, and Samaritan’s Purse, which all allow you to donate food to the underprivileged.  Children’s Charity can help you coordinate your own event, choosing to offer a snack either during or after school hours.

Hankerie's 1st time judges for "White Xmas Challenge" in verygoodrecipes.com



This is Hankerie's another first time - honorably become one of the judge of this month "White Xmas Challenge" in verygoodrecipes.com. This year December indeed a busy month for me - hosting "Aspiring Bakes #14 Creative Xmas bakes, judge of "White Xmas Challenge" & bake for festive orders. Anyway, my inspiration and creativeness never stop me from baking even I fell sick for past 1 week. 

To kick start this White Xmas Challenge, every judge needs to prepare very own recipe for this "White Xmas Challenge" and publish it on 5th December 2011. Before reveal my own bakes, here is the summary of this White Xmas challenge about - extracted from the challenge page in verygoodrecipes.com

Theme
This month theme is: White Christmas. 

There is always a magic feel in the air when snow is falling on Chritmas Eve. Not everyone lives in a region where snow is usual during winter, but everyone can try to recreate this magic in the kitchen!

What dish do you think of when you hear "White Christmas"? You can of course cook with white ingredients such as white fish, white chocolate, white asparagus, white truffles, white vegetables, chicken, cream, coconut milk etc. But your recipe does not have to be all white! It needs to be festive and have a "snowy" feel. You can be creative and imagine a snowy presentation, for instance sprinkling snow crystals (drops of cream, petals of white edible flowers, and a lot of other ingredients) or trying to create a snow-covered landscape one can eat!
