Wohoooo~ it is Friday once again! TGIF! =X What have I been up to this whole week? *sign* nah~ not much work-out in the kitchen this week… as I’m pretty buzy with…………

Yes… >.< my thesis report! Eeeeks~ shall make this short… need to bury myself in this report *wails* Really happy when i check the comments readers left me today! *grin* Thanks people! All the kind comments! And many thanks to deeba and sarah for brightening up my long, tiring day 🙂 Both of them kindly shared their blogging awards with me… so sweet!


This is what I did earlier this week; on Tuesday(15th April) was one of my darling cousin, Lewis’s b.day. 😀 I took time off, woke up early and baked him a cake… well… wasn’t really a success~ =X i sandwiched the cake with butter cream and black current preserve. Didn’t manage to get the correct consistency for the preserve *sulk* I faced troubles spreading butter cream over the sides of the cake, therefore I gave up totally and make them into slices… =X

seeee~ (-.-“) as it was sandwiched with the butter cream, it looks kind of messy with the cream and preserve mixed together, i bet it is my poor cake decorating skill~ =/ i need more practice! This is actually a recipe by Dorie, her Perfect Party Cake. I need more practice to make these perfect…

Thankfully, Lunch was pretty prefect! 😛 pizzzzzza~ and it was thin crust pizza! 😀 we both had fun, messing around with the ingredients available in the fridge to make these… yum yum! a new favorite homemade thin crust! This deserve a post on it’s own, so i shall find time to do it later next week when i’m closer to completing my thesis. 😛 Alright~ back to boooooks… not cookbooks sadly! *wave*
