Lesson learnt and dinner......


My first 'official' sale. Why official? Because it was a sale to someone i do not know, not the relatives or next door neighbors ha ha ha......Anyway i learned a lot from this first sale. 1st of all, confident that i had all the ingredients to bake this chocolate cupcakes, i did do the the physical check he he....i forgot that i have 2 other cooks beside myself in the house. After the Subuh, started to weigh and measure the ingredients and sheeesshh......i ran out of self raising flour....i took a deep breath and remembered the pancake made by my son a few days ago...quickly went to browse the net and looked for the replacement....easy enough all purpose flour with a few teaspoon baking powder....but still prayed hard the batter would work the same with the combination. I did not want too high or too low of cupcakes. The cupcakes came out perfect and thank God......lesson learn?? 1) To do the physical check no matter what
2) Can substitute self raising flour with the above mentioned combination. 3) Learn that the normal quantity of batter used was not enough for the number of pieces ordered. Gotta work on that too to ensure enough batter for number of pieces i want.
Since she wanted similar designs from my previous pictures, i did simple similar deco but not the same.


Cooked paku goreng belacan and gulai telur itik with belimbing for dinner a few days back. I forgot to get some pucuk ubi for the gulai telur but it was still yummy......
