Thanks to Yatoque's gift, an oven; I was able to complete my three WANTS this year. TV, sofa, oven..in that order. Alhamdulillah, that's all settled in a mere two months. :D That was what I've been chanting WANTS, not those who suddenly (magically!) appear~!! ahaks. But, that'll be another post!
I want to share about my baking project!! To date, I have already baked 2 batches of Diamant Vanille (will share the recipes on the next next post!) and also 1 batch of cupcakes (cheat with muffin mix <--yes, I'll redeem myself in the next batch! :D) with the oven. And, to tell the truth..I think I'm already hooked! Hopeful for a better results next! I always have problems with muffins or cupcakes, and my my..this first try with the new "old" oven can be considered a success!! All my 18 cuppies gone~! Yeay..That includes the 2 cuppies I saved for tea date with Yatoque later..and, actually I do feel a bit guilty cause I did not bake enough :(
Oh, actually I always wonder on how to do the topping and I've been looking and gawking at those pictures of cupcakes with topping & frosting that looks soooo delicious and fattening~ haha. a beatiful mess blog also does not help either when they always, I repeat always post their baking projects!!! I'm always green with envy looking at their blog. hehe. Just look at their posts on cupcake mixology and frosting basics. That's just on baking~! They have like projects and projects that makes me want to do them all, but time is what I don't have. So, I just stick to what I do best..relax! Haha..Let's see bits of their pictures.

Nah, that's why I'm trying to bake and attend baking class (have to limit on this though). Oh, did you know, I'll be attending class next week by Caramel Factory again!! :) This time, it's going to be biscuits, even the bagel class do sounds enticing!! It's a special short class with menu, Starbucks Style Chocolate Chunk Cookies! Hehe, see what's caught me? So, I hope this class will be a very short one, because my parents are coming!! The biscuits gonna be my treats for them..oh, and the family~!
Err, about the topping, I think I've managed to do the simple recipe found in my recipe book (I have to post about this book, someday) as I forgot to buy ingredients of Kak Hazit's recipe of Chocolate Buttercream topping. :( Sounds delicious, yes? For the next one, I'm trying out the recipe to go with vanilla cupcake (Kak Hazit's go-to recipe too :D). I'll update my pictures of the cookies and also cupcakes, later!! :)
