Exhausted

I must promise myself that I shouldn’t be too ambitious…with baking and cooking. Now, I’m completely washed out.

For breakfast, I decided to bake Cardamom Crumb Cake . It took me one hour in total to bake this and was a good complement to my daily dose of coffee.

Since I was free, I decided to do French for lunch – Leek & Potato Soup (FFWD) and Gougeres – and thereafter try my hands on Mocha Roulade which basically is rolled cake. The other day at Sarah’s, I did a wrong step for the log cake but thankfully she was around and it was salvaged. So, I thought I should bake it on my own and see if I could be successful this time round. Alas, it was a failed attempt again! The sponge cake cracked when I rolled it. *heart-broken* There goes my eggs, chocolate, flour, butter, etc. Oh never mind! I shall try again!

Since I would have nothing for the women’s BS party tomorrow, I thought I had better bake something that I am more familiar with – cupcakes.

The heart-shaped tuiles were ideas from Sarah and I got some amount from her the other day. I hope nothing would go wrong tomorrow. Pls, buttercream…don’t melt! You shouldn’t because the weather would be cold!
