  3. Hi SSB! I am thinking of seeing something with nuts (whatever nuts in the market) or something of flowers shape/ingredients or maybe coffee! Hehehe~ I am a silent reader! :) Thanks so much for starting this! ^^

  5. 我的建议-冰凉甜点,家乡菜,或是回味儿时趣味的零食或食物

  6. My suggestion will be muffin or quick bread that do not need creaming. Though there are a lot of recIpes can be found in Internet I hope to see more tested recipes by fellow bakers that proven to be good so that whenever I want a quick bake I can have more options.

  7. SSB, Congrats fOr your great success in carrying out Aspiring Bakers Challenge. It is indeed a great source for inspiration and learning past months. A great platform to get to know all the aspiring bakers out there too. I certainly look forward for more themes coming up. You did a wonderful work!
    As for the upcoming one, how abt any 糕点带有古早味?一些小时曾经吃过,能回味已往。eg. Steam 鸡蛋糕,rum ball, 面煎果etc
    不然就糕点也不错。 再来具有挑战性的macaron?
    不论是哪个,一定会支持;)

  14. 1. Traditional kueh will be good, I can't seems to get good recipes ie with clear instructions.
    2. Scones...I am looking for 'the' recipe that produces scones that are as good as those I had at Cameron Highland!

    Sorry for my vested interest ;)

  22. Hello SSB,

    I learn a lot from your site. Thanks and hope you will continue showing us more. I like to know how to make sesame glutinous ball who will not sink after cool down but had a crispy exterior with a chewy interior.
    2nd subject: Steam malay cake (MAH LAI GOH), My Grandma use to make this very fluffy with no hard bottom but I was too little to interesting to to this kind of food, so didn't get the chance to learned. She use the basics ingredients.

  23. Erm just like the others out there, i truly truly appreciates Aspiring Bakers as it acts as a great platform for all passionate bakers to share and learn things from one another.
    However, i do have a suggestion (not related to topic actually, but i had posted up my desired theme above :D ). I think that you might want to have festive themes, perhaps a month in advance. For example Mid-autumn fest is this mth, so u guys can host mooncake theme on August or smth, so that by the time everything is finalize, we are still in time to bake the products during the festive period :) hee hee its just my 20 cent worth thought thou :D Aspiring Bakers hwaiting!! <3

  24. Cherry: Thank you so much for supporting Aspiring Bakers. Without all of you, it will not be so successful!

    Hey, I agree with what you said, esp for this mid-autumn theme. It is a bit rush since it happens to fall in mid-month this year. Bakers might not have the time to post before mid-autumn and we can only keep the recipes until next year. ;p

    I will keep this in mind when deciding the theme in future. Really appreciate for the feedback. Lastly, remember to submit your entries, as many as possible. :)

  26. SSB, thanks for hosting this interesting event. It provides a platform for us to show off our bakes and also to allow us to look at beautiful bakes from fellow bloggers. I know this involves a lot of work do finalise each round ups and please know your effort is much appreciated. Is the theme restricted to baking? If not, I will suggest home made pasta and sauce.

  27. Quay Po Cooks: Thanks for your support for Aspiring Bakers! We have to thank the other bloggers who volunteer their time to host and do the roundups every month, and of course everyone who submitted their entries.

    No, it's not restricted to baking. We will explore all types of baking and cooking. Pasta is a very good idea! Aspiring Bakers have many years to go! :)

    I'm ready for nonya kueh.

    ReplyDelete
  31. i also like the idea of kuih. Besides that, an ingredient can also be a theme..for eg..pumpkin, red beans..etc..me and my 2 bakers friends, joyce and zoe will be making something out of bananas in the next 2 weeks..

    ReplyDelete
  32. Perhaps a theme with ingredient using liqueur such as Baileys Irish Cream, Kahlúa, Brandy, Kirsch, Rum, Grand Marnier & etc to bake or make dessert ?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Kueh. I have been scouting for kueh tutu recipe but could not find any. Perhaps some bloggers may have it and could share. Thanks a lot :).

    ReplyDelete
  34. jelly?
    puddings?
    kuih?
    or desserts with vegetables
    sweets made from rice(desserts and sweet stuff so that can stir some creativity besides baking with wheat flour all the time)
    pizza galore
    chocolate cakes? with so many chocoholics, i'm sure it'll be a crazy compilation of choc cakes

    ReplyDelete
  35. local kuih / nyonya kuih would be good..

    ReplyDelete
  36. what about halloween...it can be any steamed or baked goods as long as there are holloween oriented. exp kuih in pumpkin shape etc.

    Another prefer theme will be kuih too...

  37. Hello!! I just got to find out about Aspiring Bakers last month and coincidentally, the themes for last month and this are that of what I had already planned to bake before I even saw what's on AB! :) I like the idea of traditional kueh too... I think it will be an eyeopener to see the traditional bakes from the different races! :D

    ReplyDelete
  38. Traditional desserts? :D Which includes nyonya kueh, kueh lapis, etc would be great :D

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi ssb,

    I'm thinking, if instead of all the bakings, how about all the dishes, like "roast" theme, for example, roast chicken, roast pork, etc? Just my 2 cents worth.
