For the first time baking this kind of cake.. it was a carrot cake, ladies! even though the appearance is not that good, but it's taste was not so bad. Hahaha... Since i just finished my english test last saturday, still i am in the english mood today.. hahaha don't feel annoyed. I decided to write this entry in english language. My wording is not so bad right, am i? in fact, i expected to score at least band 6.5 average to qualify me for university application in my furthered study coming soon.
By the way, i baked this carrot cake a few month ago. As i am a busy working mommy with two kids, i don't have much time to spend updating this blog. Most of my day time are spent at workplace. after office hour, it's already 6pm! don't have much time to do other things else, as i must be hurry to fetch my kids up from babysitter's house. Oh one more, need to buy food for the brother prior picking them to home. Arrived home, need to feed up my baby before get to shower. Oh no... i was so tired.. Only Allah knows how i feel that time. the elder brother keep asking to get him the vitagen and something else to eat, while the baby crying so loud. This situation happen when the husband is not around (outstation)... filled with stress in my head. OK. I need to stop talking and writing things that i believe also happen in other career mommy, right. Okey, we move on.....
This is how my cake looks like. I am not very good in decorating cakes, in fact this is my first time playing with the cake deco stuff. So please do not expect a good decoration. HAhahha
|How it looks like?|
|Just before hand it into the oven.|
|Fresh and hot from the oven.|
|With cream cheese frosting.. mak aiii susahnye nak buat|
|Why the texture and the color not as i always ate? is it because of cinnamon powder that reaching the expiring date? tu la simpan lama lama lagi.|
|Ok..laa... lain kali kalau nk buat, buat sikit je... nanti tak habis.|
About the recipe i used for baking this cake is actually from Kak Noor Masri Dapur Digital.
Thanks alot kak Noor Masri.
