There's a few birthday celebrations today. How lucky to have your birthday falls on August 31st, the whole nation celebrates with you !
What a coincidence, the cakes today are all cream based with fruit filling. My Kitchen Aid (KA) had been hardworking, whipping rounds after rounds of double cream, I must have used 3 1L pack of double cream ! I find chilling the bowl of my KA mixer makes whipping much easier, I get a perfectly stiff whipped cream. I've used chilled plastic bowl for my double cream but sometimes I get cream that refuse to whip, which is too soft for icing a cake.
This is a durian cake, probably the last one for this season. My supplier told him the next batch of durian will be available maybe end October.
A lemon cotton cheesecake. My cheesecake is without any icing but since I've whipped extra cream, I piped some on top of the cake for the same person who's having the durian cake as well. How lucky, to have 2 birthday cakes on his birthday !
A Taiwanese friend's son, whom we call Di Di turns 2 today. Last year, he had a cotton cheese cake with train set decoration. His mum tried JF's blackforest cake & wanted the same cake for his birthday with lots of sweets.
A whopping 3.5kg mango cake for a sweet grandpapa who's 61 today. As the mango season is over, I had a hard time looking for mangoes around KK, managed to get some @ the Fillipinoes market, they were big, juicy & rather sweet but the cost were more expensive than when they were abundant !
After everyone has collected their cakes in the late afternoon, I finally have time to take a short nap, off to a quick dinner & thereafter hubby & I brought the girls to watch "You don't Mess With the Zohans". I've never really like Adam Sandler but think he's cool in the movie, with that funny accent & those dance moves !
