What a hot bright Tuesday. I am having a quiet and peaceful afternoon all by myself. Wish to do something after I've done some preparation for my tuition class tonite. Ohhh....there is one that I wish to share with you, peeps..... my first order of the New Year, Vanilla Cake.
It is a birthday cake requested by one of my friends at school for her little chubby princess. Her birthday was long passed .... I think it was in November. Her mum told me at a wedding reception when I was setting up a wedding cake there. It was there, she had a very sad, bad news that her late beloved father passed away. Al Fatihah.
It was rather a surprise when her mother made another request for it. I didn't even mention or follow-up her request either because it seemed to be inappropriate to do so. Her birthday is belated for a month. Pity her. But the problem is with me now...being so lazy to move my bones to start baking.
But the glimpse of her cute chubby face moved me back to the kitchen and be done with it. At first thought, I would like to make peanut topping but later, I went and seek her mother's idea. Her little princess did not favour peanut and then this idea cropped out into my mind. Topping it with whipped fresh cream and to add a little taste of chocolate flavour, I decorated it with M n M. Children adore M n M. Not only them but my big girls too.
