Strawberry D'Lite

Was terribly busy over the last few days attending a fun-filled mixer as well as fulfilling a last-minute order for a birthday cake & preparing for the Tango with Mango workshop today.

Made a Strawberry D'Lite for the birthday cake as can be seen. Comment:- was good, not so sweet but would have been better if cake was more 'spongey'. Almost half the cake gone in less than an hour.

Coffee Harmony

Coffee Harmony

Another light & moist butter cake that seems like the traditional marble cake except that this is made with coffee flavour, just like the one used to make 'Papa Roti'. Imagine the coffee aroma & exquisite fragrance of coffee. Mmmmm............

Pineapple Tarts

Pineapple Tarts - Dolly's Glory

Made more tarts yesterday to fulfil some orders. Many people like them just like my brother who is so fussy that he only buys tarts from Glory. Until he came across our special tarts which according to him "tastes as good as Glory". At the same time, we use lots of pineapple jam so much so that the tarts are pretty 'high' & thus earned the nickname Dolly's Glory - as huge as Dolly's, as good as Glory's.....

Feel like biting into those yummy tarts? : )

Rainbow Heaven

Rainbow Heaven

Tried this simple butter cake that was not only colourful but tasted pretty good as well.
Since it has three colours, and according to comments by tasters that it was moist and soft and great tasting, we named it Rainbow Heaven. : )

Durian D'Lite

Durian D'Lite - sponge cake with durian cream. Both cake & cream made use of actual durian flesh that was pureed.

Tried doing this first time last weekend & made 2 small heart-shaped cakes. Since mum needed a cake urgently for a friend whose daughter's birthday was just around the corner, one of the cakes became the birthday gift.

Not too sure how to decorate the cake & tried 2 ways as can be seen from the pictures - small little colourful hearts which made a beautiful gift & the other was decorated with chocolate decor.

Definitely the cake was a pleasant change from those that you see in the cake shops.

Blueberry D'lite

Blueberry D'lite - beautifully light chocolate sponge cake filled with blueberry filling & topping.

Made this for 2 separate occassions - a) birthday and b)welcoming a japanese couple who had just arrived Singapore for a holiday.

Birthday cake was a 7" square cake which was shared by 6 adults after dinner. Most of them had 2 servings. And the balance was brought back by the birthday girl for breakfast.

Comments:- Was so good and not so sweet that must have 2 helpings.

Welcome cake was a 5" heart shape cake for the japanese couple. They had it after lunch and for tea as well.

Comments:- Not so sweet and tastes very delicious.

How about trying one? : )

Tango with Mango workshop

Home Kitchen Creations
Chai Chee Road
Happy Holidays!
Home Kitchen Creations has come up with another exciting workshop specially for kids
aged 6 - 14 years.
Do join us in this delightful "Tango with Mango" hands-on workshop. Vacancies are limited
as class size is kept small for personal attention and hands-on experience.
For this workshop, we learn 3 different ways of cooking:- mango and chocolate chip muffin which is baked, the non-baked mango and peach cheesecake and mango agar-agar which is boiled.
Mangoes are high in Vitamin A, and without a doubt have a lot of vitamins and minerals. Mangoes are a good source of Vitamin C too! The flesh of a mango is peachlike and juicy with a hint of pineapple flavor. The flavor is pleasant and rich and high in sugars and acid. The mango is the apple (or peach) of the tropics, and one of the most commonly eaten fruits in tropical countries around the world.
Our hands-on workshop includes:-
Mango chocolate chip muffins
Simple & fun to make, yet tastes good!
Mango and peach cheesecake
No baking necessary for this refreshing cheesecake made with mango & peach.
Mango agar agar
A special dessert that is popular with both kids and adults.
Date of workshop:- Sunday, 25th June 2006
Time:- 2pm - 4.30pm
Cost:- $35
Register before Wed, 21st Jun - $30
Register with 2 other friends before Wed, 21st Jun & pay $28 each

Strawberry D'Lite with jelly beans

Strawberry D'Lite - a sponge cake with strawberry cream, decorated with colourful jelly beans for a 11 year old birthday boy whose birthday fell on May 27.

Feedback:- not so creamy & not so sweet. So good that the family of 3, who seldom eat cakes, finished it in 2 days.
