Baking Day!

I was on fire today, baked 4 different kinds of treat a day! First one was some kind of dauphinois, well, maybe it’s not really a treat but for me it is :) and the second one was the one I bake so often: rocky bars. What I’m gonna put the pictures here were the last two, blueberry & cheese tartlets and red cherry clafoutis.
The tartlets didn’t use real blueberries, just blueberry jelly (the kind people usually use for donut filling) mixed with cream cheese. Clafoutis originally made from black cherries, but I only had the red ones in hand.

sacher torte with oranges! fruity!

this is for my dear friend's birthday. he requested a chocolate cake with some fruity taste, so I suggested sacher torte which has apricot filling, cover the cake with not-so-dense ganache (combination of chocolate and cream) and topped that with oranges. happy orange birthday!

Choco Banana Pie

Saw this in ‘Gula-gula’ tv show and wanted to try it at once. Turned out not that special. Well, the recipe itself was very-very simple, basically just a pie crust filled with banana slices and chocolate ganache, so it would taste exactly like the banana and the ganache. That’s all. What did I expect? :)

Birthday Black Forest

My good friend for whom I baked the chocolate lover’s pound cake also ordered a birthday cake for his mom. A black forest. I decorated the cake just how black forest usually are, with whipped cream, topped with cherries, and sprinkled with grated chocolate, then I added some chocolate thins around the edge and tied the cake with a pink ribbon so the thins would stay where they should be. Sweet, isn’t it?

Chocolate Lover’s Pound Cake

A good friend gave me a cook book as my birthday gift. To say thanks I let him choose any recipe in the book and I would bake it for him. He chose this chocolate pound cake. I made them in form of cupcakes so they were handy.

Birthday Cookies

This is for my brother's birthday. It's actually two oversize cookies sandwiched together using cream cheese frosting. But I used a too small pan so the cookies were taller then they should be, made it look more like a layered cake than layered cookies.
I love the idea of using colorful candies to decorate, simple and very easy but looks so festive. I love the frosting too, the cream cheese balances the sugar so it doesn't taste too sweet.

Chocolate Pistachio Biscotti

I made this biscotti for a friend as a farewell gift because he is going to continue his study abroad. It tastes very chocolaty, a bit crunchy on the outside, rich and chewy inside. Love it.

Pennylane’s Brownies

I have a friend that has the same birthday with me. To celebrate our birthday this year we decided to bake something together. It was fun! She let me choose which recipe we would try, and I had wanted to try this brownies recipe for a while. It turned out pretty good. But for me, I like the fudgy kind of brownies with chewy texture whereas this recipe is using vegetable oil and cocoa powder instead of butter and chocolate, so the result is more cake-like.Pennylane’s Brownies Recipe

Blue Birthday Cake

Today is my birthday and I've been planning to bake myself a birthday cake. A decent one, with frosting and candle and cherries and all. A friend asked why it had to be blue. Well, I have two reasons.First, a very long time ago I stumbled upon a birthday greeting card in a book store. It had a picture of a slice of birthday cake, chocolate cake, and yes, with blue frosting. Baby blue precisely. I thought, how cute, it was a nice color combination of dark brown and baby blue. And blue was my favorite color at the time. I was thinking it would be nice if someone give me a cake like that on my birthday. Well, since no one has given me a blue cake until now, I decided to bake it myself.Second, I'm currently feeling like a blue birthday today, so the cake would be match with my current mood :)So, here it is, happy blue birthday to me!

Cappuccino Wafer Sundae

A very simple desert. Chocolate wafer soaked in cappuccino as the base, cappuccino mousse, whipped cream, shredded chocolate. I called it 'A Fake Tiramisu' :)

Chocolate Cream Tart

Saw this in '500 Chocolate Delights' that I got from a friend and made it the first recipe that I had to try. Pretty simple, basically just a chocolate crust (made from chocolate wafer biscuits, not from scratch) filled with chocolate custard then topped with whipped cream and garnished with cocoa. Tasted simple yet good. Melted in my plate and mouth!
