Traditional French Baguette



French baguettes are always my husband favorite as he prefers salty bread rather than sweet bread. And hence this is my determination to keep myself updated and improve in making bread area. Today, my baking chemistry is towards the chewy traditional bread, indeed the baguette taste are so much different from Europe or Australia. The main factor in fact is due to the flour quality that hardly can be found in Malaysia. I made the original baguette in these different countries, but all the result came out differently. In conclusion, the quality of flour really is a differentiation factor to make the good quality of french baguette.

My experiment today is more to improvise this differentiation factor, knowing that I could not get the French flour in Malaysia, what I made the difference is by using malt sugar in my recipe. Even for malt, I was looking around for quite some time. You must wondering why am I using malt sugar in the baguette recipe, actually malt contains several enzymes which breaks down the starch in flour into simple sugar. Sugar is important for two primary reasons: first is yeast's food (fermentation) and caramelization of sugar contributes greatly to a rich crust color. Most french flours have malt added during the production, so you can get fine results without adding more malt to the dough at mixing time.This malt sugar can be only added a little bit as you do not want your french baguette to turn up as sweet bread at the end of the day. 

So in my theory, 0.4% of malt sugar out of your bread flour contains should be the best combination. Here comes my chewy baguette but crusty outside :)

See the inner texture of these traditional French Baguette, indeed it's chewy inside and crusty outside



Assorted Cartoon Fondant Cupcakes for Kids



Angry Birds, Angry Pigs, Thomas and Friends, Cars....all these assorted cartoons are my source of ideas to custom make these into cupcakes for Lucas's birthday - Lucas (my best friend's kid).

In fact, cartoon cupcakes are the perfect way to celebrate a kid's birthday party. If your kid have any obsession with cartoons, you will be asked for the beautiful cupcakes with wonderful cartoon character on top of cupcakes by using fondant icing. Decorating cupcakes with these cartoon characters is the newest trend for parties. The more popular of the cartoon in the market now, the more people are asking them on top of their birthday cakes too! If you’re planning a birthday party for your kid, why not make your favourite cartoon character as a themed party? Definitely all the kids will be enlighten.

There are plenty of ways to decorate cupcakes with cute little animated character toppings. For Lucas, he likes from Angry Birds, Thomas and Friends until all the Cars series. The main problem was he only likes small cupcakes but not the one whole big cakes for his 4 years old birthday party. Hence I made them into small cupcakes as per his wish. The Angry Birds series make really good and easy toppings for him, perhaps I did it too many times. The Cars and Thomas and Friends took me quite a while to make all the details. Sometime think about it, small fondant cupcakes might takes longer time than one whole big cakes in terms of small figuring decoration.

Out of these 4 cupcakes, I love this Car fondant cupcake the most



2013 Hankerie Go Green Swiss Roll



Happy New Year 2013. Just a beginning for the new year, wish everybody plenty of luck in this year.

With the love of go green concept, I incorporate the idea into my 1st year 2013 bakes - green tea swiss roll. Absolutely love the natural colour of green tea, despite of using pure pandan extract this round as green tea will definitely bring out more vivid colour into the bakes. Whenever drinking the green tea ice blended, everyone starts to relate the sweet red bean into it. I omit the red bean this round as my husband do not like the combination of red bean with green tea.

By using the free-hand drawing my Hankerie brand onto the cake, I also added on the year 2013 as the trademark of this year. With the remaining butter mix, I've piped the additional lines and flowers around the cakes too.
