(Cooking With Love) Persembahan dari hati tulus Ibunda untuk semua

Secara pribadi aku belum pernah bertemu dengan Bunda Inong secara empat mata. Yang aku ingat hanyalah percakapan kami di telpon beberapa kali dan juga komunikasi lewat sms dan email saat aku memesan kering kentang andalah beliau yang secara eksklusif hanya dijual di bulan Ramadhan. Meskipun tidak ikut menunaikan ibadah Ramadhan tapi aku selalu menunggu-nunggu bulan suci ini karena disitulah kembali aku dan keluarga bisa menikmati sedapnya kering kentang Bunda Inong.

Beberapa kali main ke blog Bunda Indong termasuk blog Dapur Bunda, saat itu aku belum memiliki oven namun tetap semangat mencoba beberapa resep Bunda Inong yang mudah dan tanpa mengharuskan aku memiliki oven seperti donut dan puding.'

Bunda yang senyumnya selalu kuingat ini sekarang sudah pergi....namun cintanya terhada anak dan suami terus membekas dalam setiap tulisan resep di blog nya....semuanya beliau persembahkan untuk keluarga tercinta.

Aku mengucap syukur saat berkesempatan untuk turut mencoba resep Bunda Inong dalam proses penerbitan buku resep beliau. Resep beliau yang aku coba adalah Kue Lumpur, karena kue lumpur adalah kue kesukaan suami dan putri kecilku, Ruth. Hasil kuenya sungguh nikmat...saat memasak dan menikmati kue tersebut aku mengingat Bunda Inong...terimakasih Bunda.....resep ini Bunda tulis dengan cinta untuk yang tercinta....saat memasaknya pun aku memberikan segenap cintaku untuk tercintaku juga....

Bunda Inong, saat ini seluruh teman-teman Bunda dan keluarga tersenyum sukacita dan penuh rasa syukur karena Buku Bunda sudah terbit. Hanya ini yang bisa kami lakukan untuk terus mengenang kasih Bunda kepada kami semua. Doa kami, buku ini bisa memberikan inspirasi kasih kepada setiap pembacanya. Terima kasih Bunda Inong....kami rindu senyum manismu

Fruit Pie/Taart with strawberry creamcheese filling

Order came from Rita, Bunda Izan since a few weeks ago for her anniversary tomorrow. Glad I reconfirm to her yesterday as in my note it said the order was for Friday, 26 August. Well today is 26 August. So....?? I called Rita and she said yet its for 26 August which is Tuesday not Friday. Haiyaa...what's going on with me??

I went thru internet to find the best recipe of strawberry creamcheese..comparing from one recipe to others and finally came out with the one that I think is good, easy to make and quick. As I had muscularache yesterday I couldn't spend my time in my kitches as usual. I needed to get everything done quickly.

Strawberry creamcheese filling - you can see the chooped fresh strawberries in there...yummy!

I spreaded strawberry palleta over the creamcheese to help the fruits stay fresh longer

Final look

Thank you Rita for your order, Happy Anniversary!

Black Forest for Mas Anang

This order came from my causin, Yovie, for her brother. The process of making this cake just crazy, everything was up side down. Didn't have chance to make the cake in advance as I was tight up with another order. So I had very limited time to make the cake. Got home on Friday at 10:30pm, had a little nap until 00:00am then jumped out from the bed and started to bake 3 layers of cake and making the filling.

Glad that I have prepared the chocolate decor, simple syrup & butter cream a day before. Finished baking at 2:00am, while cooling the cake I decided to take a nap again for 2 hours. Set my alarm at 4:00am. Then jumped out again, starting assembling the cake and finally finish everything by 6:10am. Pyuuuffff....what a day!

It's an important lesson for me! Next time whatever it is, must prepare the basic cake one day or 2 day before assembling the cake, it's a must no matter what. Because it can help me to prevent the caostic. When everything in a rush then I can't be totally concentrate on the decor.

Anyway, Yovie's in law said the cake was awesome. Thank you!

Chocolate Birthday Cake for Gabriella

Order came from my colleague, Wina, whose Gabriella's auntie. A 30 x 30cm full chocolate cake with winnie the pooh theme.

Wina & family don't like butter cream actually but for winnie the poooh theme I think I need to put a little bit colored butter cream to make the cake appearance more stunning. Glad that Wina said it's okay for the little butter cream :-)

Happy Birthday Gabriella and thank you Wina for your order.

Edible pic chocolate fruit cake

This order came from the Queen of Cupcakes. An edible chocolate fruit cake for a boss in the company she works for.

It's 3 layers of chocolate sponge cake with chocolate ganache and blueberry filling and covered up with chocolate ganache and some fruits topping. To moist the cake I used vanilla syrup.

I was a bit confused when had to asemble the fruits because there were not much area left to assemble the fruits.

Thank you Ibu for your order and trust.

Barbie Cake for Ara's 3rd Birthday

Dedek, Ara's aunty ordered this barbie cake since a few weeks ago. Dedek wanted to have pink as the color theme of the barbie. So dress should be in pink and white ornaments. Dedek also wanted me to do the hairdo for the barbie doll.

So here it is....I took pictures of some details of the barbie doll cake.

Following the barbie doll cake, actually I made 4 cupcakes in momma liner with pink and white theme also and each cupcake has letter and number for ARA 3. Also I made 2 extra cupcakes, one of them to put the candles. But I was about busy with anything else and didn't get a chance to take more picutures of the cupcakes.

Thank you mbak Dedek for your trust and order. I was happy to be part of you and your family happiness. Happy Birthday to Ara.

Multiply Birthday Cupcakes

These cupcakes ordered by Ari, a friend from Multiply where Multipliers in Indonesia call her as the President of Multiply ID hahaha....

Ari ordered these cupcakes since a few weeks ago, she ordered for chocolate cupcakes with chocolate chips filling. But, the fact was we have missed some other important point for this order. We didn't discuss about the decoration theme, packaging etc. So I just made up everything by myself.

These cupcakes actually was packed individually very nice but I just didn't have time to take more picture of the cupcakes as the delivery man already waiting in front of my door.

Happy Birthday Multiply Indonesia, thank you Ari and Multipliers for your order and trust. I am happy to be part of the celebration. Apologize for being absence for the celebration.

Brownie Cupcakes

This brownie cupcakes recipe is one of the best brownies I have ever had! The method is very simple and the taste is very rich as they combine cocoa and chocolate. I don't use the frosting...too sweet for out teeth :-)

The recipe is taken from one of my favorite websites, Martha Stewart. I decided to add a teaspoon of vanilla extract for a better flavour and change the method a little bit.

What I post here is how the way I make my brownie cupcakes based on Martha Stewart recipe.

Ingredients :
6 tbs unsalted butter
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate + 3 ounces chocolate chips
3 large eggs (my eggs were pretty small so I used 4)
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/8 teaspoon baking soda (I decided not to use baking soda as I don't like the taste and substitute it with 1/4 baking powder)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, (optional) - (didn't use it)
Nonstick cooking spray
Mrs. Milman's Chocolate Frosting (decided not to use the frosting)

Directions :
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-count muffin tin with cupcake liners. Set aside.
2. In a saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and 8 ounces of chocolate. Stir until smooth. Remove from heat, and set aside.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar. Add flour, cocoa, and baking powder . Stir in the melted chocolate and vanilla extract until combined. Stir in remaining 3 ounces of chocolate chips and nuts if desired.
4. Using a 2-ounce ice cream scoop, fill cupcake liners 3/4 full with batter. Bake until a firm crust forms on the cupcakes, about 20 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool, about 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pan, and continue to cool on a wire rack.
5. Ice cupcakes with a generous amount of chocolate frosting.

Notes :
I only fill cupcake liners 2/3 full with the batter - 3/4 is too full and in my oven it took 30 - 35 mins to get them done.

Triple Choco Chilled Cheesecake - Ingkan

This is a sudden order from Ingkan, Abel's Mom who last time ordered Abel's birthday cupcakes.

Yesterday Ingkan buzz me and asked me whether it would be possible for her to order cheesecake for her beloved husband. I was shocked when she mentioned cheesecake because I am not too familiar with baked cheesecake. Then I gave another alternative which is chilled cheesecake and after some discussion finally she decided to order Triple Choco Chilled Cheesecake.

It's 3 layers of cheesecake with oreo biscuit base. First layer is white chocolate cheesecake, second layer is milk chocolate cheesecake and third one is dark chocolate cheesecake. I decorate a little the cheesecake with whipped cream, some cheeries and chocolate. Put the nice ribbon to express Ingkan's happy feeling to welcoming her husband tonight.

Thank you Ingkan for the order, my best greetings to your lovely family. God bless!

Comment from Ingkan sent via sms last night :
" Dew, kuenya nyampe dlm keadaan sempurna. Dan rasanya wuenak banget! Suamiku suka banget dan nambah ampe 2x. Anak2 jg suka...Will definitely pesan lg darimu :-) Thanks ya dear..."

Fruit Pie for Ade

Last week a good friend that I met thru sehat mailing list buzz me on YM. She shared with me a good news that she is expecting her 3rd child. Wow!....its absolutely a wonderful news. To balance the bad sickness she is having, she needs something fresh, healthy and tempting for her tummy. And her choice ended up to my Fruit Pie.

The funny thing this morning was when I essemble the fruits I suddenly blank, got no idea what to do with the fruits. Almost one hour I just stood next to dining table looking at my pie and kind of mad to myself. Finally after I looked at the clock and time keept running I decided just to follow my heart and feelings for the fruit decoration.

I hope Ade will like it, thanks Ade and wish you for the healthy and happines as you are expecting the new one.

Comment from Ade :

"Mbak uenaaakkk bangettt...temen-temen kantorku juga bilang enak..thanks ya.."

Colorful Barbie Doll Cake

This is a repeated order from Ibu Elly - Morie's Mom. This time she gave me some pictures of the details of barbie dress that she wanted to be made for the barbie doll cake. When I saw the pictures...I was just shocked. The costume has wings!!! Tried to make the wings but ended up unsuccessfully. On the next day I text Ibu Elly and telling her all the truth. I told her that I am not that professional. I would do the best I could do...if finally she would be unhappy with the cake, then its FOC.

I only took the color theme of the costume for my barbie doll cake, plus some little designs that I might think could be adjusted to the barbie doll cake. Other details I just made up by myself.

Sunday afternoon after the cake was delivered I received a text message from Ibu Elly:

"Bu Dewi, sudah saya terima, bagus banget anak saya seneng banget. Brapa ya harus saya transfer ya. Minta no rekening Mandiri ada?"
(Bu Dewi, I have received it, its beautiful and my daughter is very happy. How much do I need to transfer. Is there any Mandiri account?)

I was soo happy! even still not sure until yesterday evening if Ibu Elly happy with the barbie doll cake I made. Thank you..thank you...and thank you very much Ibu Elly!

Fruit Pie for Angela

Besides ordering cuppies, Angela also ordered a fruit pie. This time I was happy because finally I could use all kind of fruits I wanted on my pie. They were strawberries, green grapes, kiwis, peaches and oranges..wow!!! I wish we have some good fresh berries here in Indonesia and with a good price too so that I can use to assemble them also in my pies. Too bad, for now...fresh berries are still good to be true to be found here. If we could find them, might be in a very unreasonable price!

Here was the text message I received from Angela :

"Aku suka banget ma pie nya. Seger. Bener2 sesuai ma penampilannya. BAru dimakan tadi pagi mbak, secara banyak makanan dr daerah, aku gak mau merusak rasa hehehehe..."

Cuppies for Angela

I met Angela thur Multiply and last weekend she ordered a dozen of cuppies. She didn't give any theme or cake flavour so I just decided my self to make her a dozen of vanilla cupcakes with chocolate chips filling and pink and yellow flower swirl as decoration.

Text message from Angela regarding the cupcakes :

"Untuk cupcakesnya buatku makan satu kenyang cukup, kuenya padet banget ya mbak, anak-anak yang suka"
