Happy Mother’s Day : Heart Cake!

9 May

To all mothers out there : Happy Mother’s Day!

To my mummy : Thank you for being so awesome all the time. Caring and loving us unconditionally. Love you very much! (:

I decided to bake a cake for both my mum and my baby’s mum. and was looking through blogs to get inspiration. Then it hit me when I saw a post on I am Baker : Heart Cake .

It’s not literally a cake that looks like a heart. It’s a heart in a cake! What better cake to bake for my mum right? hehe When I saw the steps to making it, I was a little taken aback. Firstly, big cakes aren’t really my thing. Secondly, neither is high layered cakes. haha so yes. I was taking a very huge risk! But I told myself, if I pull this off, it would all be worth it!

Like I am Baker, I used a white cake and filled it with red velvet cake to make the heart in the cake and topped it with buttercream icing. hehe The oohs and ahhs when the cake was cut made me smile, but sadly, the icing was too sweet for anyone’s liking! So I decided that when I do make it again, I should use a cream cheese icing instead. But well, I think the cake was yummy and the sweetness might still be bearable if u eat it with a cup of hot tea! haha but yes. Definitely changing the icing. hehe

The piece that was cut out had a nicer heart shape! haha the bigger piece looked like a butt according to my mum haha. I made a U-bottom heart instead of a V-bottom. Bad cutting skills!

overall, I enjoyed the making process very much. Though it was very time consuming. But the end result was worth every single minute working on it and also the smile on my mum’s face! Plus I found out it was difficult trying to surprise my mum. She would continuously ask questions. haha. (:

So here’s the recipe adapted from I am Baker! I won’t be writing the step by step cause her explanation is very very clear! and she has step by step pictures. hehe So hop over to her blog and give this cute cake a shot!

Thank you for everything again mummy. ♥

Sorry for the lack of posts. I’ve just arrived back in Singapore and have been spending my time with my family (: For those of you who don’t really know, I have a HUGE list of places to go to when I am back in Singapore. The list just keeps increasing! haha and those that I keep going, are definitely those that I will keep in my list!

My brother is one person who would always try to bring me to as many places in the list as possible, despite his busy schedule. hehe Thanks korkor! hehe So this time, we decided to go for something we both have  been craving (Especially me haha) CRAB! (: So we went to Big Eater! There has been mixed reviews about this place, but we decided to give it a go anyways! hehe

Kor made the booking a night before. But this place is huge! so unless you’re going on a public holiday, I don’t think booking is necessary. But just in case, just do it! (: Wouldn’t take long anyways. hehe

The good thing about this place is that the valet is free! (: of course we should always tip them after cause they helped us park our car. hehe
