Chocolate Banana Cake

I can't believe I've forgotten to post this cake! I was looking at my previous posts and realised that one cake is missing.... the cake I baked for my hubs' b'day. Thank goodness he's not a reader of my blog. :P

So here it is... Chocolate Banana Cake.
Happy Birthday Chris!
ok, i admit the decoration sucks. Did not expect the text and balloons to turn out so ugly. Probably will be the first and last time I use this stencil.
It's chocolate galore!
Yes, MORE chocolate!
and yes, it's a very tall cake....

Cupcake pops!

I ordered this cupcake pop mold from Elyn with Cherilynn's Birthday in mind. I had thot it'll make a cool giveaway pressie to her classmates in school on her birthday. Little do I know that my princess actually did not think it'll be a good idea. She preferred to have a whole cake and candles for her birthday celebration. And I also came to know that there's a handful of muslim students in her class, which meant that I would have to prepare something different for them. So in the end, we decided to scrap the idea and just celebrate with family members.

I had fun "playing" with the cupcake pop mold and coating the pops with chocolate. Well, it did get a little messy in the beginning during the shaping part and I took sometime to figure out that the flaws during the shaping would probably be well covered by the coating of chocolate at the later stage. Also I had overlooked and did not manage to get the sucker stickers for these pops. In the end, I improvised and bought straws to replace those sticks. They worked fine, but maybe a little soft and won't be able to handle the finished pops if they were to get any bigger. However, after all were done, I realised that these cupcake pops were really photogenic! The kids love them, so I'll probably make another batch of these soon.

Durian Mousse Cake

This is for Cherilynn's 9th Birthday. She could not decide what to choose for her cake and I suggested cupcake pops since I bought the mold from Elyn. Well, the day before her birthday celebration, she said she did not want the cupcake pops, coz she wanted a full cake with candles and all. I guess for her, birthday means candles blowing and cake cutting more than anything else. :P (well, I still made some cupcake pops, more of it on my next post)

What to do? I can't say no to the Birthday gal. Rushed to buy the durians (猫山王)that cost a good $13/kg. So, here it is, durian mousse cake requested by my princess....

Happy 9th Birthday!
