This is my first architectural 3D cake that I made for BIMC 10th Birthday on July 26,2008.
Actually, this order was requested for Mbak Lia but she passed it on to me because she thinks that I could handle it (thanks for such a highly trust ja Mbak). After some calls and emails with Mbak Mery, a nice lady from BIMC, the BIMC birthday commitee decided to order 3D birthday Cake sculpted like the BIMC building.

The "building" was made by 40x20 cm2 Heavenly Chocolate Cake with heights for the 1st building was 20 cm and second building was 12 cm. The cake was covered in sugar paste.

I know that I need to improve a lot ;-)

Yet, on July 27, 2008 I got a sms from Mbak Mery: (I hope you don't mind if I copy paste your sms here ya..)
"Mbak Rea, thanks a lot for the cute N gorgeous cake for BIMC! It's really nice to have it. Keep up the Great job sweety!"

Good to know that BIMC-ers like my homemade creation.
I am looking forward for another event of BIMC ya Mbak Mery...

Special thanks to Mbak Lia and Mbak Mery

Zebra for Mbak Ade

Actually, this pic should be post on July 16th on Mbak Ade's birthday "party" but as always I forget where I put my CF card hehehehe...(well, I still haven't found it till now :( )

Thanks God, my hunny still got some pictures on his camera and edited it for me. Too bad, he didn't has the zebra process step-by-step pictures. I'll try to describe it on verbal then, here it goes:
  • you will need a white fondant, rolled it over until you reach +/-8mm thick
  • Rolled out black fondant and cut it into un-even stripes like on real zebra.
  • Lightly brush the black fondant stripes with a little water then put in on rolled white fondant accordingly to zebra's stripes. Be careful not too brush the stripes with too much water because it will get too soogy and sticky hard to roll again.
  • Rolled out again the black fondant stripes which has been attached to the white fondant until +/-5mm thick.
  • Voila, You are ready to cover your cake with the zebra stripes....
I hope those explanation are clear enough :D

The cake itself is a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. I'll post the recipe later ya.

At first, the cake idea was zebra motive with Mbak Ade's figurine holding a cigarette but unfortunately, my fingers were all thumbs :(( and I successfully failed in making her figurine hehehe. Then, I changed it into flowery theme as you can see at the picture.

Happy birthday to Mbak Ade...
Wish you all the best

CARS:Lightning McQueen

My 1st 3-D car cakes!!
I was sooo excited when Mbak Lia asked me to make a birthday cake for his son, Ivander. She requested a Cars -Lightning McQueen-theme and I offered her a 3-D McQueen. It's like a dream came true because I've been dying (oooops...exaggerating a bit here hehehehe) wanna tried to make this kinda cake.

Hmmmph, it's not as easy as I thought really. I still need to improve my skill on carving. The cars looked too squar-ish, wasn't it? hehehehe..It was RVC - Red Velvet Cake- that I loved to bake. The base is 28x28cm heavenly chocolate cake.

Anyway, the birthday boy was happy and everybody's enjoy the cake.

Happy Birthday Ayah

Bread ala Brulee

This the simple dessert to make that you could make it in a hurry. Serve it warm with ice cream or as cold dessert, both are okay.

I combine 4 lightly beaten eggs with 2 heapfull tablespoons of vanilla essence, 250ml heavy cream, 4 tablespoons sugar, and 27 tablespoons of MILK.

Cut 4-5 slices of 2-days old bread, put into a pyrex or aluminium foil case (I use 4 250-ml square foil case and 1 150-ml foil case). Pour in the milk mixture until full and the bread fully covered. Sprinkle with 4 teaspoons on RAISINS which has boiled with 2 teaspoons of rum or water.

Bake ala au-bain-marie for 20-25 minutes at 180*C until the cream is set.

Note: You could Sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon to enrich the flavour.
