Lazy Fat Cat - Garfield Swiss Roll

Garfield (by Jim Davis) is my most favourite childhood cartoon character, I find him cute but i'm not lazy like him. I just like the way he act, very relaxed and straightforward. With his cute and fat features, it makes me love to draw him since I was young. I've spent most of my childhood drawing Garfield, believe it or not, I was asked to draw and sell it last time :) See my primary 6 art book collection and you will understand why, I felt lucky that my mum still keep this album for me in very good condition. All of these precious collections are my hand drawing with colour pencil, from sketch until colouring, I did it all by my own in the age of 12.

Red Angry Birds Swiss Roll

This is my first time ever to draw Red Angry Bird on top of my swiss roll, and it's my first hand drawing swiss roll special order too. I'm in cloud nine that the swiss roll tastes as nice as it should be, with the nice decoration which specially order by Zaliha's 3 lovely kids. Glad they all love it; this is the best ever gift for me. See her wonderful comments on my swiss rolls in my Hankerie Facebook's wall.

Hokkaido Cake

These airy and fluffy texture Hokkaido cakes are my first creation last week. Purposely baked these batch for my Singapore friends who I visited last weekend. To make these cakes last longer, I omitted the fresh cream inside the Hokkaido cake, they are just plain one. And of course I hope they really like it.

New creation - Red Dragon Fruit Chiffon Cake

Believe it or not? This super pinkish chiffon cake batter is made from pure red dragon fruit flesh without any food coloring. At first, I thought this colourful batter is different from my Blue Chiffon Cake, at the point when I added the blue pea flowers into the batter last time, the batter changed to "green" colour immediately. In the end, this new creation of red dragon fruit chiffon cake became orange colour blended with red dragon fruit seed after baked. Another disappointment.

Spongebob Squarepants Cupcakes

Who lives in a Pineapple under the deep blue sea? - Spongebob Squarepants!!!!

Followed by my previous cartoon cupcakes titled "The Smurfs Return" and "Angry Bird Fever", this is my another collection to my edible artwork portfolio - Spongebob Squarepants and friend.

Pumpkin Bread Recipe with Fresh Pumpkin

If you are like me - love everything in pumpkin, then this is definitely a recipe to try. This pumpkin bread is so natural in yellow colour without any artificial yellow food colouring. Fresh pumpkin also creates a better flavor too. If you really cannot find any fresh pumpkin at this moment (doubt so as Halloween is around the corner), you may change it with canned pumpkin puree.

For this basic bread recipe, kindly refer to my previous post titled "Yam Paste Swirl Bun", substitute the yam paste with fresh pumpkin (boiled until soft), mix with bread dough, rest for an hour and lastly sprinkle the bread top with pumpkin seed after a layer of honey. Bake at 180C for 30 minutes. 

Multi-language Blog

Home sweet home. It's always wonderful to be back home. Today I showed my baking blog to mum, she said , "all the photo looks so wonderful, but can your blog write into mandarin version? I prefer to read it in simplified Chinese language." It sprang me an idea to use Google Translate to convert my whole blog into various language in a proper statement instead of word by word basis. So far, Google translate offers quite accurate language translate into proper sentence, even though sometime I feel it funny when reading some of the statements after translation. Anyway, technology is just awesome. Now my mum is happily bookmark my website to read in Mandarin version without me typing any Chinese character. Google translate rocks!!

The step is as easy as 1-2-3. Just find the "Google Website Translator" under my photo in the main page, you may translate my whole blog into any languages that you would like in just few seconds.

See after translation:

Specially Baked Wedding Cookies

Vividly remembered baked this batch of cookies until 4am last week. You must be wondering why I baked until so late. The reason is I started to baked after work and all, it was already 12am. The whole process took me more than 4 hours to complete everything.

For me, I always wish to do something for my friends especially during their special occasions in life such as birthday, wedding, full moon, baby shower, well wishes, anniversary and other celebrations. Ira - a friend of mine was getting married on last Saturday. This is the cookies set that I made for her specially.

Edible Angry Birds Icing Figures - by Hankerie

Undeniably, I'm definitely an Angry Bird fan. If you are my blog's followers, I believe you've seen my previous  cupcakes creation (Angry Bird Cupcakes) & Hankerie's Angry Bird Cupcakes featured in Received quite a lot of comments and some private email on this, thank you so much. 

These edible Angry Birds Icing Figures are specially created during my Hari Raya break last 2 weeks ago. They are used for my cakes decoration. In the same time, I've made it into my own Hankerie's story too. Erm, let's call it as "Angry birds story with Hankerie's mascots". Well, some suggested me in order to give my 3 mascots the name each. Any recommendation?

3.) One of my easy made cookie (Hands-on)

DIY Ice Cream Mooncake

Followed by my previous contemporary style of mooncake titled "DIY Bunny Mochi Mooncake", it encourages me to make new mooncake creation. For those who does not like traditional mooncake, perhaps this ice cream mooncake is the best choice of you. It is nice to have during this Mid-autumn festive, in the same time as a good dessert for the family to enjoy different way of ice cream.

I believe that everybody heard of Häagen-Dazs ice cream mooncake before and it costs a bomb. Today, I make my hand dirty to make my own Hankerie's Bulla Ice cream mooncake too. If you're ask me what is the recipe of this mooncake, as easy as that, they are only 3 things here - Belgium Dark Chocolate, Bulla's Chocolate Ice Cream and Bulla's Passion Fruit Yogurt ice cream. So sorry that I do not measure the ingredients this time, what you need to do is just fill up the 2/3 of ice cream, and cover it with another layer melted chocolate. Put into freezer and let it set.

DIY Bunny Mochi Mooncake

Mid-Autumn Festival is around the corner. For me, I prefer contemporary styles of mooncakes instead of traditional mooncakes. On top of that, I strongly believe that any creation should be created with its own unique creativity in order to be different.

Today I try the new creation with the mixture of mochi and snow skin mooncake recipe, and I call it Mochi Snow-skin Mooncake. :) Why this idea came about? In my opinion, it's quite difficult to roll the snow skin to the desired figure in the rolling and shaping process. Indeed this sounds complicated and tedious procedures, once you see the end product, it's absolutely worth it.

Hello Kitty Mooncakes for Orphans

Orphans celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival too! We are actually blessed to celebrate with our family, but orphans do not  have this luck. Hence, I was thinking to make something for them in conjunction of this festive. Mooncakes, of course!!! It is a must to have it during Mid-Autumn Festival. This is my 3rd visit to Miri's orphanage (see my 1st & 2nd visit -"Handmade Cookies Specially for Orphans" and "Angry Bird Fever" ), all the kids already know me well.

They ran towards me and see what did I bake for them today! Some of them said:
"Oh, this 'Jie Jie' brought us our favorite Angry Bird Cupcakes last time one."
"Hello Kitty Mooncakes!! Yippee"
"Colourful Mooncakes!"
"Can I eat even I have sore throat??? (asking the care takers)
