Undersea Themed Cupcakes

The birthday kid's favourite colour is blue so the theme ocean was born. Think ocean one would think of undersea creatures.

Garden Themed Cupcakes

Cupcakes are really fun to make, even though they're very time consuming.

I just love making these little 3D insects out of sugarpaste.

French Baguette

It's been a long time since I last did a bread post !

These loaves were baked about 3 months ago. I used them as base for my crostini with prawn.

Recipe adapted from Don Yong's Bread Winners :

Ingredients :

500g Bread flour
7g Bread Improver *
7g Instand dry yeast
10g Salt
330g Cold water

With an electric mixet and dough hook at low speed, blend the dry imgredients together for about 1 min. Add water & mix on low speed for another min. Increase to medium speed & mix for 12 mins until dough is fully developed.

Transfer the dough onto a flour-dusted work surface & round up dough with both hands. Place the dough into an airtight container & let it rise in a warm place for 1 - 1 1/2 hrs until the dough is double in bulk.

Divide the dough into 4pcs, each weighing 200g. Round up the dough & leave for 15mins. Mould each dough pc into a cylindrical shape 30cm long. Do this by flattening the dough with a rolling pin & then rolling the dough tightly from one end downwards, making certain that the seam is properly sealed.

Transfer the dough pcs onto a lightly greased, perforated tray & prove in awarm place for 1 1/2 - 2 hrs. When the dough is ready, make 3 diagonal cuts on the surface of each dough pc, using a sharp knife. Space the cuts 10cm apart.

Preheat oven to 230C. Bake with a tray of water to generate steam for the first 10 mins of the baking time. Open the door of the oven & remove any wtaer remaining. Continue to bake for about 10 mins or until the bread is golden brown.

* I omitted the bread improver, as usual.
