Summer Ice Cream Treat

I made Strawberry Yoghurt Ice Cream using the same recipe as the Mango Yoghurt Ice Cream. It was really refreshing to treat myself a Mango and Strawberry Ice Cream Combo in such a hot weather. :)

Strange! I have not been able to upload photos to Blogger for the past few days. I wonder why? You can take a look at the ice cream from my Flickr photos. Meanwhile, I will continue to try uploading my photos.

Update on 4 July:
I'm finally able to upload my photo. The Blogger problem still exists. I read from the forum and found the manual way to do it.

Double Chocolate Chips Chiffon Cake

I went Facebook crazy again after my sister invited me to play the Restaurant City game. You keep wanting to expand your restaurant, buy more decorative items to make your restaurant look better and exchange ingredients to level up your dishes. It can really get you so addicted to it. :)

Here's a peek to my restaurant. I'm only at level 10, still very small and need more money to buy more items. :)

Ok, back to baking again!

Rei's All That Matters Double Chocolate Chips Chiffon Cake is something that I wanted to try long ago. But because of my lack of skill in chiffon cakes, I never dare to bake it for fear of disappointment. Feeling a bit encouraged after the success of the Coffee Chiffon Cake, I steal some time (while running my Restaurant City, haha!) to make this.

When chiffon cakes and chocolates, two of my favourites are combined, it is no wonder that I love this cake so much. I couldn't believe that I succeed again. I'm slowly on the road to making good chiffon cakes, hopefully. This has to be added to one of my favourite lists again. :)

Steamed Moist Chocolate Cake

It was another baking session for me and my nephew. I steamed the cake, made and spread the fudge frosting and left the cake decoration task to my nephew, as he wanted to decorate the cake himself for his mummy (my sister). The cake turned out to be so lovely and colourful! I think he did a great job! :)

The Steamed Moist Chocolate Cake from Peng's Kitchen was a nice one, moist and fudgey. I'm glad that I have steamed the cake well, and not turning it into a "kueh"! It's a good recipe for those who without an oven and electric mixer.

Milo Doggies Cookies

It's the June holidays! The few Double Chocolate Mint Cookies that I had saved for ourselves was simply not enough. :) I promise my nephew to make some Kids Cookies for him during the holidays.

I tried the Milo Doggies Cookies from Happy Homebaker so that I could include him in the cookies-making for some "fun" as he could help me to put the ears, eyes and noses. I heard from him that he had made cupcakes during his class and enjoyed it. So I thought he might enjoy doing the cookies with me too.

Boys are boys, instead of helping me to do the cookies nicely, he was making monsters instead of doggies. Put the eyes one up and one down or a dog with two noses, most of them don't look good at all. Those in the photos are the only fews that look better. Haha! And he was eating the Koko Krunch and chocolate chips while making them! Gosh! I wonder how the preschool teachers manage a whole class of kids! But I'm glad that he likes the cookies.

I promise him to make more cookies for him again after he finish this batch. Got to think of what to make again. :)
