farewell cupcakes

August 28, 2008 at 10:54 am | Posted in Chocolate, Cupcakes | 13 Comments

i spent the last two nights working on these – cupcakes for my students. tomorrow is my last day of practicum – i enjoyed the experience and learnt a lot, but i’m really looking forward to the one-week break. no more piles of marking, no more printing worksheets in the work room, no more students knocking on the door to hand in late assignments… well, at least until the end of the year. after that it’ll be a whole new ball game.

cinnamon raisin rolls

August 24, 2008 at 5:53 pm | Posted in Fruit, Yeast | 3 Comments

can someone tell me where to get cinnamon rolls in singapore? we used to have saint cinnamon until a few years back. there was also a shop at bugis junction opposite the swensen’s – i can’t recollect the name though. during a trip up to KL two weeks back, a friend and i got some from cinnabon.

i was supposed to complete marking two piles of essays today since practicum is coming to an end next week, but i am just too caught up with grey’s anatomy (yes, very late i know) and my hands got a little bit itchy and i decided to bake a batch of cinnamon raisin rolls. the last time i tried it was three or four years back and the attempt was futile. since then i got terribly horrified at the thought of baking with yeast but today’s attempt somewhat allayed my fears.

my mother commented that the insides weren’t fully cooked but i like it that way – a very subtle hint of yeast-iness. maybe i just have a penchant for half-cooked things. wonderful with a glass of cold milk on a rainy day. i’m a happy contented girl. now… back to mcdreamy and mcsteamy. 🙂

it was the customary chocolate cake, sandwiched with a generous slather of cream cheese frosting and sliced strawberries, encased within a thick casing of chocolate ganache. overkill alright.

these were a cross between soft and crisp. the white chocolate makes the cookie sweet but i like it. that’s why you need a tall glass of cold cold milk. 🙂 probably the next time i bake this i’ll flatten the cookies out a bit before baking, reduce the sugar and add more cranberries.

the best friend told me to recreate a similar cake for his sister’s birthday… here it is, albeit a tad more whimsical and colourful. it’s overkill i tell you. i don’t think i would be able to stomach a slice of it. i will remind him to tell whoever’s eating the cake to have teeny weeny slices. 🙂
