Finally!! I cheated a little and bought the macaron pyramid from here. Baked macarons on the previous weekend using the same recipe as always.
Ta-dah! Macaron “Tower”. Wait, it’s Macaron Pyramid. It reminds me of the Lourve Museum. I went there last year but I didn’t get to take the photo of the pyramid. Regrets! Only the picture below.
Anyway, Mama baked Red Velvet cupcakes and this time she used the recipe from Bisous À Toi. Mama added nutella creamcheese frosting inside the cupcakes and top it with the normal creamcheese rosette. And she made them into a bouquet of flowers. Last minute idea in the middle of the night!!
I hope Adik is happy with the bakes we did for her birthday. Did not really have an actual round birthday cake though. And after one year, finally, there’s macarons! With pyramid!!
I shall try to bake something else soon.
Mama and I joined forces again for BIL’s birthday cake yesterday. A very simple last minute cake.
Red Velvet Cake with cream cheese frosting! We baked the RVC using Kitchen Guardian’s recipe here.
I was hyped up to start baking macarons again yesterday. But clumsiness took control and I ended up crying deep inside my heart.
I dropped the whole tray. Right after baking it. The whole thing fell face first. All their feet squashed. My heart broke into pieces. I baked them for my sister’s upcoming birthday since she requested a macaron tower last year.
Hehhh, I baked 2 batches after that. One is crunchy like cookies. The other is crunchy like chips. :/ I lost my mojo. But who cares for now. As long as the macs can form a tower this Thursday!
I am Mama’s weekend employee again. This time round it was a mad rush. Mama overestimated our capabilities. Haaaa! What’s with 3 big orders and babysitting the kids. I almost go crazy.
Due to the extreme big rush, I did not get to take pictures of my first full cake (Devil’s chocolate cake) and gift cupcakes.
No baking for fun this week cause my body’s aching, mentally and physically tired and it was raining. Postponing them next week!
Mama had quite a number of orders yesterday. And for the first time since I came back, I went to help her for 11 hours. Mixture of main dishes and desserts; that explains the long hours!
We did the Apam Polkadots.
And brownies with all the drizzling and m&ms.
And the frosting of 100 rainbow cupcakes. I had to do this alone cause Adek was working yesterday.
Had a hard time frosting cause I haven’t been doing them for a long time. Mama used cream cheese frosting and since my hand is always unnaturally warm, the frosting always melt by the 3rd cupcake.
Thought of baking macs again soon! Cause Adek wanted a macaron tower since last year. :S Hope I make it in time for her birthday this year. I’m already 1 year late though.
It’s been ages! I’m back home now and I feel like I’ve lost my baking mojo. Hoping to get it back soon!
The things I’ve seen or tasted while in Europe! Macs and more macs!
