Guitar Cakes

Many times I really wish there's more than 24 hours a day for me. Besides my 8 hour sleep, I spend 10-12 hours a day in the kitchen so I'm left with very little time.

I still have a whole week of unread newspapers stacking on my bedroom floor, a blog for me to update, emails to reply to, pedicure to be done......

I've been tied up with baking & more baking for the past week & this week as well. Meals had been simple, still a meat/fish dish with greens but much simple. I used to spend time whipping up new dishes but now my poor oven has been working harder than my hob !

We've done 2 guitar cakes last weekend, all for boys........

This is a half & half cake, one half is chocolate , the other half is vanilla with cream cheese frosting. It's for 2 boys who had their combined birthday party.

Another chocolate cake with a guitar drawing

This is from M to her dearest hubby, who had his birthday last Sunday. She had requested for extra strawberries for the top of the cake.

The cakes are amazing! :) I'd make a guitar cake for my husband too (he plays guitar--that's how I got tricked into marrying him LOL)--- but since all of us actually don't like eating cake...we've been having pies/tarts/and other dessert to replace the cake on birthdays... hopefully someday, I can make one for a friend's son...I'm for sure to be back for inspiration! ;)

Zurin : Thnak you so much for your encouragement ! Yes, tiring but I'm still enjoying every moment of it. Now it's me & 2 ovens, for 10 ovens I probably need 5 staffs lah, hahaha

Jenny : How about a guitar drawing on your apple pie ?? Am sure it'll be yummy :)
