Not only have i seem to lost my mojo in baking, i seem to have lost my blogging mojo too. Lately, i have no idea what to say after i upload the photos...LOL!
I was suppose to bake the no-bake cheesecake which is suppose to be on schedule but i can't find whipped cream cheese anywhere in the supermarkets. I thought i've seen it before though. But this week, i can't find it anywhere! So i ended up baking 2 cakes..because i couldn't decide which one to bake for my church fellowship gathering. I also made Jell-O Roll Ups, recipe shared by my flickr friend Kim who has a blog called The Partiologist. Not only does she decorates awesome cookies, she does the best table setting and party food for her parties! I don't know how she comes up with all these wonderful and creative ideas!
Swedish Pear & Almond Cream Cake
This cake is pretty easy to make. However I had to make a trip to the baking store to buy a box of 300g almond paste which i only used 56g. Shop auntie advised me to get the valrhona brand.. i didn't know valrhona has almond paste..i thought they only sell chocolates..lol!
One side of the cake (1/4 part), the pear didn't sink but that's also because i messed up when i put in the almond cream. The rest sank down the bottom quite nicely.
Verdict: I find it a bit sweet. Perhaps it's the almond cream. Everyone at the gathering said it's nice but on the sweet side....but that's also the fact that many locals here doesn't fancy sweet desserts or rather too sweet desserts, so in comparison, i have a sweet tooth by our local standards..LOL!
Chocolate Velvet Fudge Cake
I love this cake. It's so chocolatey and moist and so soo delicious! Best of all, it's soo easy to bake. Definitely my to-bake-again cake! Great texture, delicate crumbs and not too sweet too. :)
I'm in love with my new heritage pan..lol! I've been finding excuse to use it...:)
This is such a fun and pretty dessert! And so easy to make. Recipe can be found here at Kim's blog:- http://thepartiologist.blogspot.com/2011/06/jell-o-roll-ups.html.
