Had a long day.... we went to the zoo this morning... had our lunch there and got home in time for Sonia's afternoon nap... she had fun of cos.. running and playing.. pointing out and naming the animals... shes one special girl and we love her to bits! shes funny and i must say that we had a good time today... we spent like a good half an hour at the leopard area simply cos thats her favorite animal and Papa the photos below are for u .. :o))
Photos taken by my good ole pocket camera... after a few months lugging around a heavy camera.. it feels funny to hold and take photos using a small camera hehehe
Anyway after putting Sonia to bed, I managed to bake this cake for sis Wati... Dont ask me how it taste like cos i didnt even taste it... my guess.. a spongy butter cake since it uses lots of egg whites?? hmmm .. the recipe was very easy to follow and oh... please use a 16 cups bundt pan as it produces a huge cake..
