June 20th was supposedly to be my younger sister’s birthday until I met Glenda, whose birth date falls on the same day as my younger sister which gave me a perfectly good excuse to excuse myself from celebrating her birthday…
Since, it’s the first time I’m celebrating Glenda’s birthday, I decided to ATTEMPT to bake a cake!
Disclaimer: I have never baked a cake for the whole of my life, and it’s my first time trying to do so, yes I may be able to whipped up yummy looking food and dishes but baking, it’s just a total disaster.
The cake batter after mixing it, and the hardest part was having soft butter, why couldn’t I just heat up the butter?!
After mixing in the colourings for the gluey mix, I don’t know why red looks so pink so I ended up spamming tonnes of colouring trying to make the batter red, and ended up having to warn them not to eat the red layer.
See! Red came out red and I regretted spamming in so much of the red. Stupid me. And because the yellow layer was too thin, I accidentally broke it and guess how I managed to salvage it?
Spam layers of cream over it like how glue works, and guess what?
Thankfully, Glenda didn’t notice it, I hope!!
Whipped cream! I could totally imagine the heap of fats that you are going to consume…
So this was the original version of the cake… you will probably figure it out why it’s “original”…
Taadaa the cream drooped!!!
I had totally no idea why it fell and on the exterior of the cream was like water, EW! It looked so ugly that I had to redo the cream, the next day…
Pretty cupcakes that I made the next day!
Just a pile of fats on a overly red cake.
While I was baking, I managed to find time to make this fabric board “birthday card”!
And I made a big mess in the living room and kitchen that I took part of my sleeping time to clear up the mess.
So much effort on the board and the FINAL PRODUCT looks SO pretty!
(Self-compliment because I totally needed it!)
And I made cards for Karen and Glad to write their wishes on!
I can’t believe myself coming up with such pretty stuffs with just papers, glue, scissors and an empty floral fabric board.
I TOTALLY DESERVE A PAT ON THE SHOULDERRR~
Guess where her guy brought her for dinner? Rochester Park and Dempsey.
So romantic. I wishes somewhat would do the same too, on my birthday…
(Better wake up and stop my dreaming…*a slap on face, phish*)
The food just looked too yummy!
And while Glenda was enjoying her dinner basking in the romantic atmosphere and her companion, we were just slacking in the room…
AND, did these!
I shall present you the END PRODUCT of the cake!!
I had to scrap off all the melted and horribly looking cream and redo it with buttercream icing! And I ended up pouring too much icing sugar, it turns out to be to sweet!
But well, at least it didn’t go out of shape! MUAHAHAAH xD
Too lazy to even decorate it anymore so I just sprinkle so rainbow sprinkles and hearts and topped it with a gummy.
Happy Glenda with the birthday cake that she couldn’t believe I baked it! YIPPEEE~~
It looks pretty when it’s cut. ❤ ❤
To the happiest girl, Glenda 😀
And we’re off to … party again!
Here’s a shot of Glenda and her Mister. Ahh, happy boy and her birthday girl!
(I wish I can meet my mister soon~bleahhh)
Kisses for you! Muacks~
What a fun night we had!
With their classmate, Ming Ai! She’s also from Malaysia, Kulai, just a little short drive away from Kota Tinggi, how COOL!
And for the first time ever, I got my brows drawn by pretty Glad!
