Just to be like the sun

An invitation

My ex collegues invited few of us to her new house for a gathering, she cooked porridge for us and each of us doesn't wanted to go empty handed, we got balestier tau sar piah, hakka soon kueh, egg tarts, baked pau, keropok...

We are a group, so called "makan kakis" and we meet up every few months and this has been going on for about 15 years... whew! times really fly...

Actually, I bake a chocolate truffle cake for her and used my balance converture chocolates, the finished product, I was not satisfied on the taste of the chocolate mousse, I threw the cake away. Sharon was worried for me, I told her I sleep over it, tommorrow then see how.

6.30am - hubby wake up and goes for his remote plane hobby, I woke up as well and decide to do a swiss roll, luckily, I still left a bit of cream and a tinned of pitted cherries. It took me less than an hour to bake and roll the cake and put in the frig.

After breakfast, I went to the supermaket to buy a packet of chocolate chips, just in case, if I remove the paper and if the skin stick on to the paper, I can do some covered up. Just like a woman, must look beautiful outside.. ha!ha! dressing up to hide the flaws. True enough, the skin stick to the paper.

My friends was impressed with the cake and say it looked like store bought, my head swell.. yay! Overall they like the taste, say not sweet. I personally like the sponge.
