We kicked off the day with the baking. After measuring and sifting the flour, we started creaming the butter. Patiently waiting for the butter to get smooth.
when the butter , sugar and eggs were well mixed, time to alternately add in the flour with the milk.
time to fill up the cup, to get the exact weight that you wanted, it's best to use the weighing machine, but if you didnt have one, do not despair, just fill it three quarter full.
while waiting for th elittle cupcakes to bake in the oven, we started making the fondant mushrooms and handbags, just to let them have a feel of the fondant. Most of the decorations would be made from buttercream for beginners.
Khusyuknya jad, duk belek handbag tu....
Puan Nas pulak crative tu, laiin yang kita tunjuk, lain yang dia buat but that's what this session is all about, to unleash the hidden talents that you have inside, be creative, let your imagination run wild.
one thing I noticed after the day ended. I was so engrossed with the class and my two 'students' that I didn't have time to think about other things, I was so oblivious to my surrounding, no worries, no thinking of unpaid or unsettled bills, just concentrate on them, on making sure that they achieved what they were here for, and I hope they did.
Jad duk buat daun tu , nampak pegang piping bag with green buttercream tu
At 2 pm, we stopped for lunch for a while and had white rice with ayam masak minangkabau and ikan siakap bakar with sambal, which I prepared earlier.Suka tengok Nas makan siap tambah lagi. Jad pulak, diet, patutla slim mlim je badan dia.
A picture says a thousand words and I guess, you can see from the smile that Puna Nas kita ni is very happy with her very own creations, 12 + 2 bonus cuppies to bring back home.
For someone who has never held a piping bag before, who never knew what the terms and jargons used in this cake decorating world, I am impressed with both their works. This were Nas's. Just take a look at her "Gu*ss" handbag, siap dengan kedut2 lagi tu.....
Jad, looking tired but satisfied I hope, posed with her 12 + 2 cuppies too, all done by her. she liked the design which I made recently, the white buttercream with a single red heart in the middle, so I added that to these deco.
this is them, at the end of the session, sudah menjadi teman dan mesra, siap nak tukar2 FB lagi tu.... the beauty of cake decorating, it brings people together...
