.:other than cupcakes:.

One thing that I loveee to splurge on is books especially books on baking. And one type of book that I love to buy is books on baking for kids as its recipe and process is sooo simple and easy to do. If you want to prepare quick and easy or last minutes treats or desserts, I think this the kind of book you should search for. One of my favourite book is this, Willian Sonoma - Sweet Treats. So last sunday I decided to bake something other than cupcakes. Earlier I had ordered some homemade marshmallow, and most importantly its HALAL with JAKIM certificate. I bought it from Mama Fuza Marshmallow. I was looking for something that can use the marshmallow that I bought. After browsing through the book, I decide to do Rocky Road Fudge. It is just super duper easy. It's definitely for chocolate lover.

rocky road fudge
(adapted from William Sonoma - Sweet Treats)

1/2 tsp vegetable oil
3 1/2 cups mini marshmallow
2 cups coarsely chopped walnut
2 cups  semisweet chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk (I use less than 3/4 can)
1 tsp vanilla extract

1. Line an 8" square baking pan with the aluminum foil, gently pressing the foil into the corners and letting the foil hang over the sides.

2. Soak a paper towel with the vegetable oil and use it to rub over the foil.

3. Set aside 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/2 cup marshmallows.

4. Put the chocolate chips and condensed milk in to the bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir with the spatula until all chocalte are melted. (Since I don't have a microwave, I use double-boil method.

5. Then gently stir in the vanilla extract, marshmallows and walnuts in to the chocolate mixture.

6. Then pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Smooth it out evenly and smooth the top.

7. Sprinkle the fudge with the reserved walnuts and marshmallows and gently pressed them into the surface.

8. Cover the pans with the cling wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 30 minuted.

9. Lift the foil to remove the fudge from the pan and peel away the foil. Cut the fudge into 16 pieces.

.:another awesome year it will be:.

Oh time does fly so quickly. It's already another new year (it also means another year added to my age..sigh..). It's still not to late to wish everyone a happy new year. May this year bring happiness, wealth and success...(aminn..^-^). are some of nikoniko cakes

.:for my cousin:.

Last week I was so busy playing around with fondant. My cousin at Sg. Besar got engaged last weekend, I made a box of cupcake for hantaran, plus a strawberry topping chocolate cake and a box of supermini choc buttercream for makan-makan

This is a vanilla cupcake topped with buttercream and decorated with fondant. Wanted to try a domed-shaped cupcake.

While this one is a 9' classic chocolate cake frosted with chocolate cream topped with strawberry and decorated with buttercream. Yummy if I say so myself.

.:football theme:.

My collegue, Aziah asked me if I could do a football shaped cake. How could I refuse to a new challenge even if I have no idea how to do it. I accepted the challenge. Of course internet was my source of idea (and importantly my "teacher"...hehhe). In the end, this is how my football theme cake looks like.
Dang....this is the only nice pix I got before the battery was out...dang..dang.

The bottom layer is a chocolate cake layered in between with strawberry filling..frosted with chocolate ganache and covered with chocolate fondant (the choc fon. taste really chocolaty..not too sweet at all..nice). The half ball is a choc cake frosted with choc ganache and covered with fondant. The idea for the muffler, jersey and boot was inspired by Fera from Bandung. I just loooovvee looking at her work. Alhamdullilah the customer that ordered this cake through Aziah like's it.

.:something cute:.

Aziah requested a set of cuuuteee cupcake.
