Merry Go Round....
Tap... tap.. tap microphone.. hellooo world!! hehe.. I am back.. sorry for not being able to update my blog and for not being able to even get my finger clicking on my lappy visiting my fellow bloggers .. am fine .. Sue am still alive dear hahaha.. will divide my entry into two post as theres too many pics that i wanna share..
So the story begins after we got home fm bkk.. i knew far too well that its gonna be a crazy week .. i was prepared and everything went smoothly err well except hb fell sick a few days bef the party.. hes all good now.. i know i shouldnt hv said this but i sort of felt glad cos theres someone at home to keep an eye on my little sonia while i was busy baking away and to hv our car on Thursday was a blessing cos i got to go out and buy all the stuff for Sonia's bday bash :o)
Anyway long story short.. i started baking on tues.. did famous amos chocolate chip cookies, baked 400pcs of macarons shells, baked cranberry layered cake, baked congo bars too.. it was all easy peasy until thursday night when i went online to look for some ideas and started to feel a little panic looking at all the carousel cake photos.. i was like.. geeeshh these ppl can really decorate their cake so so well.. i was so afraid that i might not be able to do a good job on sonia's cake.. i even told hb that maybe i shud just do a simple cake and pipe in a pic of carousel on her cake lol...
You see.. if u hv been my follower u will know that my little sonia is into carousels.. she went crazy over carousels on our last trip to Europe and has since requested for a carousel cake for her bday.. she even requested for a red and white carousel for some reason (thank god she didnt request ben10 green and white lol).. so knowing exactly what she wanted.. i went to buy the wilton carousel set which consist of the horses, pillars and also the roof.. i decided to use fondant on my cake simply cos i knew my cake would look much better that way.. started baking her cake on friday night and only fell asleep at 3am .. woke up early again and started to decorate her cake.. took me close to 5hrs decorating it..(overall 8 hours), hid the cake in our entertainment room on the 3rd floor.. switched on the aircon and went down to continue doing other preparations.. i did a batch of snow white apam, filled all my macs with fillings (buttercream and lemon curd, buttercream and blueberry filling, chocolate filling, nutella buttercream and also green tea filling) and also prepared Rote Grutze (a german red fruit pudding aka red berry compote).. i am not too sure if i did take a pic of that but will definitely be making it again and again cos its sooooo uber delicious!!! - i think i will prepare it again soon and will take pics and post the recipe next time yah.. i also did mango delight and also chocolate mousse in small cups as dessert..
Credit goes to hb for helping me with the horsey.. well done dear! u did an awesome job with the saddle hehe
