Raya Cookies + Kueh

I would like to take this opportunity to wish my 3 blog sharing darlings Kay, Ummi + Nanie Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir Batin. Hope all is forgiven... and my wish goes out to all muslims out there as well. :D

During the fasting month i had made and sold a fair amount of cookies to relatives and friends. Initially i intended to make 7 different types of cookies which are:
  • Butter Cornflakes Cookies
  • Chocolate Crunchies
  • Almond Cookies
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Orange Sable Cookies
  • Lemon Melting Moments
  • Orange Chocolate Cookies
But i ended up with 6 because the last one didn't turn out the way it was suppose to and i didn't have time to rectify it cause i needed to meet the dateline of all the orders and also the fact that i was doing it on my own. I need a helper next year! :P
But alhamdullilah all the cookie orders were delivered in time.

Other than cookies, i helped my mum with a few variety of local nyonya kuihs and agar-agar. She loves making these local delicacies unlike me...hehe suke western je...

1. Butter Cornflake Cookies (baking away)

2. Chocolate Crunchies (ready for delivery)

3. Almond Cookies (fresh out of oven)

4. Chocolate Chip Cookies (my favourite)

5. Orange Sable Cookies (Z's favourite)

I just realised i don't even have a single photo of my lemon melting moment cookies. How sad! because it's one of the prettiest cookie out of all because it uses a piping bag and star nozzle to make a swirly shaped cookie....and taste good too....booooo now i feel down out of the sudden.

Sigh anyway...

here comes my mum's section :)

1. Currypuffs before going into the fryer

2. Onde-onde or some might call them buah melaka

3. Kuih Seri Muka (bottom:pulut, top:pandan flavour creamy custard)

4. Cekodok (banana fritters)

5. Biji Selasih 2 layer jelly

6. Mango flavoured jelly with cubes of brown sugar jelly inside

A treat after long absense

Hello everyone...i'm back after so long of not posting anything. I didn't stop cooking, baking or anything like that is just that i've been really busy lately and just couldn't bring myself to sit in front of the screen long enough to put up a post.

Anyways, this come back entry is just gonna be very short, sweet (literally) and simple.

Cupcakes....yessss i just love the look of them. I've always been a fan of cupcakes and i believe that cupcakes shouldn't just be nice on the outside. Reason is cupcakes are known to be pretty and cute to look at but taste wise......nah, (showing thumbs down) you know what i'm sayin rite?...well not until now where cupcakes seems to be the craze these days and it has very much improved in quality and easily found in your nearby cafe or restaurant. :)

Welp, i'm gonna leave you with photos of cupcakes that i had made during these past months. Enjoy!!!
