.:next order:.

i was super duper tired today, not because the numbers of order. but lack of sleep due to brain disfunctional. why? goshhh sometimes decorating cuppies can be hard especially when the ideas 'ran' away. it took me about 2 hours to have these idea. sometime when customer said "up to you to deco" my respond will be "owh dear". this cuppies were ordered by hubby's friend. hope he enjoy eating the cuppies. he should or else i will feel double the tiredness!

orange cuppies frost with choc ganache & buttercream icing

then right after finish deco the cuppies, i took bath and nap. right after my nap, wake up and star deco cuppies for my lil brother. actually his burfday will be tomorrow but he's celebrating it today (as 1 Feb is public holiday for federal territory) with his friend at al quran learning centre. i bake choc moist cuppies and orange with strawberry fillings. goshhh i just love to work with wilton's icing colour. the colour turn out so smooth and nice. the best part is, my red buttercream is RED! and to tell the truth, it is really difficult to deco cuppies for boys! especially when im out of idea! finally i gave up and draw flowers :P sorry ya dik. itu je yang kak long mampu buat. to tired

i love this design the most :P cloud, sun and grasses

.:red bean stollen bun:.

first of all, this is not for sale :P just want to share my passion and obsession toward breads. omg! i love to eat bread sooooo much. even when i carried my daughter in my tummy, i prefer to eat bread rather than nice. maybe that explain why my lil gurl chubby like the bread dough while proving LOL. i had a negative perception on baking bread since the steps sound messy and tedious. but surprisingly, after i get the right technique, alhamdullilah, my breads turn out very well for a beginner like me (tak attend memana kelas buat roti tau). and of course, my role model in bread making is MamaFaMi. i adore all her breads! how i wish we are neighbors :P okay less talk, i did these red bean stollen bun from her fp. and i am so happy to see my red bean stollen bun been stole by members of the house :P so heres the recepi. and to MamaFaMi, thank you so much for sharing the nice recepi.

my red bean stollen bun

ingredients (i copy & paste directly from MamaFaMi :
800g flour
300g lukewarm water (the amount may vary according to the flour)
120g castor sugar
50g margarine
2 packets (22 g) dried instant yeast
2 eggs (small)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon milk powder
1 teaspoon bread improver

Method :

1. Place flour, castor sugar, dried instant yeast, eggs, salt, baking powder, milk powder and bread improver in a mixing bowl.
2. On the mixer and pour water, a little at a time until the flour almost combined.
3. Add in the margarine and continue kneading. Add more water if needed. Knead till a soft and smooth dough is formed.
4. Make into a big round ball and leave to prove till double the size (about an hour or so, depending on the temperature of your place).
5. Punch down the dough to let the air out. Knead and ready to shape.
6. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 C for 18 - 20 minutes.

wonder how to make that style of that reb bean stollen? go to MamaFaMi's fp to see how she did that.
