Salmon Sushi Cake

“Happy birthday, girl!”

Yesterday was the birthday of my elder girl. She wanted the same strawberry cream cheese sponge cake I made for hubby just last month. Having to make so many cakes in a roll, I was kinda feeling lazy. It might also be lacking of surprise element to the birthday celebration.

Making a sushi cake not only special, sushi is also her favorite food, especially with salmon as its filling. Hence, I decided to make this as her birthday surprise, at the same time, our quick and simple dinner meal. I thought this was the best simple celebration to mark this day during her exam period. Yes, it was the second last day of her year-end examination period. :)

Avocado Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese

“Simple and delicious avocado cake for a healthy afternoon.”

Avocado is definitely a superfood for all ages due to its high nutritional value. However, not everyone would accept its creamy texture and taste. I personally loved it so much that I would eat it whenever I could, but it wasn’t the case for my children. In order to make them eat, the taste of the avocado mustn’t be present in their palate. If you, too, encounter hard time getting your young ones (and even the big ones) to eat avocado, here I have a great & simple solution for you. Here you go, having the superfood disguised in my little sweet treat. Who says this is not one of the best ways for treats & “tricks”.. :D

Strawberry Cheesecake Sponge Cake

“This is a delightful sweet treat.”

This romantic and luscious cake that suits all occasions. I made this because my son loved strawberry and cheese. I thought the combination would make him thrilled, even on his dad’s birthday. Yes, this was the birthday cake for the dad’s, but with favourable to son’s liking. :D

Indeed, son requested 3 servings at one go, and wanted to go on, if I did not stop him. In fact, it was well-liked by everyone. Even I supposed to watch my diet, couldn’t resist and had 2 slices of it. :)

“One-bowler simple-to-make orange muffin, you don’t even need an electrical mixer for this.”

Durian Cake with Banana Streusel in Glass

“Scrumptious durian dessert recipe, now comes with a professional video cookbook, by and on”

The media news and durian experts speculated that MSW (Musang King) durians would drop its price this August. So, I thought it’s the best time (again) to eat the king of fruits, durian. To me, it’s more that just eating this creamy fruit, incorporate yummy durian into your homemade dessert and baked goodness would be an excellent idea, too!

The super aromatic and crunchy banana crumbs as the topping is something you wouldn’t want to miss. Make sure you have it to compliment this durian cake in glass well.
