Anyone know what are these by looking at their outlook? Guess??
A rabbit shape container?
And a bear shape container?
A hint for you, it is something related to egg, a hard boiled egg... Haha...
Well, let me introduce to all of you, it is used to shape an egg. Get my point now?
First of all, prepare a hard boiled egg, when it is still hot, put it into the cute shaper. Wait for few minutes, or until the egg is cool.
Tang tang tang tang!!!!!! Yeh, now the normal round hard boiled egg becomes so cute in rabbit and bead shape. Hahahaha...
Amazing! I just love it. How about you?

Bangkali Cheese Bread and Bangkali Garlic Bread

After attended the 2nd flogger gathering, I decided to make my own bangkali cheese bread because the bangkali cheese bread served at Edelweiss Restaurant was delicious. Well, I do not know exactly the ingredients they used, but from the outlook of the bread, it looks like simple dish which ingredients are bangkali bread and cheese. Ops, almost forgot, there is another ingredient, called onion!

I made my own bangkali cheese bread without onion, hmm, the taste was not bad, especially when the minutes it came out from my smart oven, the fragrance and the taste were fantastic.

Other than that, I did tried bangkali garlic bread too. Weeeew, one word to describe everything, SHUI!
Please try out your recipe and share it with me, ok?

Macaron Class

I have attended the macaron class conducted by Sunny Yaw (Big Boy Oven) from KL on last Saturday. The class was held at Hong Yap Trading Company at Jalan Siam Penang and the course fees is RM220. Before the class start, I tried the macaron which was made by Sunny. That was the first time I ate macaron and I was surprised as the macaron taste really good, I just like it. Sidney said that macaron is sell in Singapore and Japan, too bad that I do not see any macaron selling in Penang. Erm, anyhow, now I know how to bake it myself already, so I can bake it at anytime I want lo, haha, but according to Sunny and Sidney, the macaron is something hard to make as every single steps are very important and if you do not handle it well, your macaron will not turn out nicely. :(

Here goes the macaron photos...
Before baked:

After baked:
The "legs" will come out after you bake it, and this is the specialty of macaron. According to Sunny and Sidney again, without the "legs" it is not consider as macaron. Haha, so funny.

Coffee macaron made by Ah Shui, hehehe...
Tea break prepared by Ling Zie,
Banana raisin bread (not too sure about the name)
Chocolate Guinness Cupcake

Thanks Ling Zie. I like the Guinness Cup Cake very much, but I did not try the cookies :-( Was busy keipoING and kapsterING around and forget to try it. Hehe...

I like the class as we are able to hands on and make our own macaron, each student will do one recipe. I can conclude that the class was fun as I can learn macaron from there and also get to know some new friends. Thanks to Sunny and Sidney for taking the efford to travel down from KL to Penang to conduct the class, nice meeting all of you and of course, hope to see you all again in the future.

Mini Chef

I like to collect cute-cute and mini-mini stuffs, another word to describe these cute and mini stuffs is "miniature" lo, haha…I feel very "geram" when I see them.

I always feel like shouting (as loud as I can) at this moment, the moment when I see the cute cute and mini mini things....AAAAARRrrrhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!
I was searching for chef miniature since long time ago, finally managed to find it. The height of the miniature is about 10cm only, so can you imagine the size now? Hehe, cute ler! Also, the miniature chef that I was looking for is chef with bread/cake, wooo, that's why not easy to get lo. And most important thing, don't be too expensive...hahahaha...
