Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Full Rose

Full Rose

This is the pink edible rose made of gumpaste that I made during the class on Saturday.  Not very nice though and the teacher said I put too much colour on it.  Will need a lot more practice to perfect it.   It definitely takes a lot of patience and time to do it and I can imagine the time it takes to make enough flowers to decorate a cake.

Lady's Fingers

Lady's Fingers
After I came back from my Singapore trip I am amazed to find that my lady's fingers plant has given me results and  I am happy that one of them is quite big. I measured it and it is 9" in length. Again this one might to be old to be eaten and I will keep the seeds when it dried up. The flower is pretty too. I was told that this is the bigger variety and the small ones would taste better.  A few lady's fingers have also sprouted out and this time I will keep an eye on them because I want to eat them!   After seeing the lady's fingers I am now even more encouraged to grow other vegetables though my bitter gourd was not successful.  I have bought a packet of the red variety of the lady's fingers and we will see how it will turn out.

Chocolate Cake

It was my husband's birthday and I make a chocolate cake, a mini cheesecake and logan agar2 all in one day.   The cake is nice but a bit hard and I should not have put the cake in the fridge.  Now I have to take out the cake for a few hours to let it soften before eating it.  I have yet to find a really good moist chocolate cake recipe.   The roses are store bought but soon I will be able to make my own as I have signed up for a class to learn how to make them.

This is a very solid cheese cake I made especially for my daughter who asked for it.  Solid in a sense that it is mainly cheese and egg which has no cream in it.  My husband got this recipe from his friend during his university days in Melbourne.  Recipe under Bistro Cheesecake.

This logan agar2 taste like soyabean jelly and it is very easy to make.  Recipe is from a colleague P K Chan's mother.  You can always make half a recipe.
