Dinosaurus edible cake for Anindhita

Shopia, my colleague has a little cute girl namen Anindhita who really likes dinosaurus. Since a month ago Shopie asked me whether I would be able to make a birthday cake for Anindhita with dinosaurus theme. First, Shopie asked me if I can make a 3D dinosaurus and friends, I said yes. But last weekend when I tried to make the 3D Dinosaurus....ohhh they turned out very terrible. I am not an expert for 3D cake so I have to apologize to Shopie that I couldn't meet her expectation. Glad to know that she's okay with that and we agree to change the decoration using dinosaurus edible image.

Basic cake is chocolate rich cake with butter cream icing.

Happy 9th birthday Nindhita....God bless you dear!

This birthday cake, is also as a closing for this season. I am leaving out of town tomorrow early morning and won't be back till Sunday evening. My kitchen will be available again starting on Monday, 7th July 2008.

Have a nice holiday all!

Eva wanted me to write down Raina's 2nd birthday on each cup cake....as those were 4 dozens and I didn't think that I would make it so I just using edible then hahahahaha....glad that Eva didn't complain about the edible.

Teletubbies for Raina's 2nd birthday

A few weeks ago, Eva contacted me thru email. She wanted to order a birthday cake for her lovely niece, Raina who celebrated her 2nd birthday last saturday. The theme requested was teletubbies and Eva asked for the edible teletubbies.

Well, I have tried to do my best....and as I am just still a amateur, I couldn't make the edible teletubbies just like what Eva wanted. I told Eva the truth that what I could do was just putting the teletubbies cake toys in Raina' s birthday cake. I know that I have disaapointed Eva, therefore I gave her some discount.

This morning I received text message from Eva saying that they were happy with the delicious chocolate rich cake I made for Raina birthday cake...the delicious of the cake could forget them from the edible teletubbies hahahahaha.....thank you Eva for your order and waiting for the next one :-)

"Waduh mbak Dewi, bday cakenya wangi banget, bau lemon...(glad that I decided to put some lemon zest on the syrup and it was just perfect!) jd pd gak sabaran mau icip2 kuenya...apalagi raina, begitu liat adagambar dia ma tetubbies lgs dipegang-pegang kuenya malah edible yang di pinggir kena tgn raina jd copot deh..anyway smua pd nanyain kuenya abis enak trus butter creamnya ga bikin eneg jd pd nambah...tks ya mbak meskipun teletubbiesnya jd pake mainan..."

Last minute before packing, I decided to pour some sprinkles to make it more colorful and I think they looked even nicer, don't you think?

Glad that Winda loved the cup cakes....even other colleagues at work who saw the cup cakes then ordered some more for themselves :-)

Thank you Winda for your order and awaiting for the next one hehehehe....

Abel's 4th birthday cup cakes - princess pink and purple

I know Yesi, Abel's mom from Multiply and it was nice to be able to help her to do Abel's 4th birthday cup cakes.

I made chocolate and lemon cup cakes for Abel. Decoration using edible image and butter cream and color theme was pink and purple...very girly hehehehehe...
Glad that Yesi was satisfied with the cup cakes. She was concerned with dry cupcakes, but when she tasted my cup cakes and Jonathan's birthday cake, she was happy with them.

Here is the text message she sent me regarding the Abel's 4th Birthday cup cakes (sorry...again they're in bahasa - actually the message would like to say thank you and she very satisfied with a very moist and delicious cup cakes I have made).

Lighting Mc Queen vs Ultraman for Jonathan's 3rd Birthday

I still feel very sorry for Jonathan as I couldn't finish all projects I planned before for his birthday. Besides made him a birthday cake with ultraman & lighting mc queen theme, I was also thinking of baking some cookies for him. But I just didn't have that much energy to do it. So I only baked him a birthday cake.

I am soo glad that he loved his birthday cake very much. His eyes were blinkin' when he saw his birthday cake. He said "thank you Mama...thank you Mama.." hundred times and that was just melted my heart.

Last minute before we brought the cake to Pulau Dua restaurant to celebrate his 3rd birthday, I put some more green grass to give more color on his birthday cake and Jo even liked it more. The cake was chocolate rich cake. Every one just loved the moist and very chocolaty cake I made...Jonathan even had 2 slices before he ate his birthday lunch and at home I couldn't counted anymore how many slices he had.

Again, happy 3rd birthday my lovely son...God bless you and Mama will always love you with all my heart....

Glad that she didn't sue me hahahahaha.....she just reminded me for June 28th this can'be wrong anymore. Additional order for 150 pcs of mini strawberry pies :-)

Naura 2nd Birthday

Ordered by Rika, Naura's Mom. Cup cakes and birthday cake for Naura 2nd Birthday with pink princess theme.

I was a bit lost when decorating the cup cakes but finally I could finish them in 4 hours. It was a bit tiring as I didn't have enough sleep for 3 nights. I did the packing in the morning with a rush.

This time I tried a new recipe of chocolate devil cup cakes from Martha Stewart with a little modification to adjust the taste to be more Asian and turned out just perfect.

The birthday cake was 2 layers of moist chocolate sponge cake with chocolate ganache and blueberry filling. The strong vanilla flavor from simple syrup just blended very well with the cake and filling, turned out absolutely wonderful taste!

Fruit Pie for Pakdhe Joni

More on fruit pies!! I think fruit pie has becoming primadona in my kitchen. This is another fruit pie order for birthday. I changed the design a little bit. Don't like what I did with the wording though...need more practice!

Well, I think when people start to get tired of birthday cake and would like to find another alternative of healthier stuff for birthday, fruit pie can be a good alternative don't you think? As I have just received another fruit pie order for a birthday next week :-)

Fruit Pie with Cream Cheese Filling

Another fruit pie but this time I used cream cheese for filling as requested. This time I want to share the recipe so that you might can try and give me your opinion about it.

For the crust, so far I would say this is the best sweet crust I have ever made!

Pie crust :

300 gr + 2 tbs all purpose flour

175 gr butter or butter + margarine/shortening 50:50 (chilled it before using)

1 egg, lightly beaten

30 gr granulated sugar

1/4 tsp salt

Directions :

1. Mix in large bowl flour, sugar and salt using whisk or finger

2. Cut in butter using fork, pastry cutter or knive, add in egg mix until dough holds together.

3. Wrap the pie crust in plastic wrap then place in refrigerator for about 30 minutes - 1 hour

4. Roll the ball of pie crust out until it is 3 or 4mm thick and you have about 24 - 25cm in diameter.

5. Put the circle in a 22-23cm (9 inch) pie plate, trimming any extra dough from the edges with a sharp knife. Return it to the refrigerator for at least 20 mins to chill the butter and rest the gluten.

6. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Line unbaked crust with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Fill tart pan with pie weights, rice or beans, making sure the weights are to the top of the pan and evenly distributed over the entire surface. Bake crust for 20 to 25 minutes until crust is dry and lightly golden brown. Remove weights and cool crust on wire rack before filling.

Cream Cheese Filling:

330 gr cream cheese

180 gr butter

180 gr castor sugar

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix all together until soft and creamy

To assemble pie :

Spread a melted chocolate over the bottom and sides of crust to prevent the crust from getting soggy. Let the chocolate dry between 20 - 30 minutes. Spread the cream cheese filling and decorate the pie with any kind of fruits you desire and coat the fruit using glaze to make the fruits look shiny.

More for Fruit Pie

After posting the mini fruit pie & mini savory pie, I received a text message on Friday evening from Angky asking if I could make another fruit pie to be sent to Pekayon, Pasar Rebo on Sunday. It's a bigger size of fruit pie, she requested the diameter should be more than 18cm. As I have never done it before I asked her to give me some time to think and to calculate the cost.

Saturday morning I confirmed Angky that I could make the fruit pie for her. After searching in the internet about step by step making a great crust then I gave my first try to do the bigger crust using the crust recipe I used for mini fruit pie. First try didn't go well...so I change the method of doing it and it worked well for the second try, the result turned pretty good even though I didn't do very well in trimming the edges, still need more practise...so give me some more orders on pie then I will be very happy to practise more hehehehe...
