The Joy Of Baking

It's 4:12am & you guys must be wondering what I'm doing up at this hour....Yup! My crazy urge to bake simply hit me AGAIN! This urge of mine sure come at such odd hours!!

As I'm typing this, I can actually smell the aroma of my carrot cake baking in the oven...The sweet smell of cinnamon, vanilla & walnut really fill my heart with joy...I can already imagine the fun I'm going to have icing it with my lemonish cream cheese topping...Hhmmmm, maybe I can use my new basket weave icing tip when I decorate my cake later. Yeay! Time to upgrade my cake decorating skill ;-)

Honestly, it has been quite some time since I last baked my carrot cake. So, last Sunday, for my dad's birthday, I thought what better way to show my love for him other than baking my own homemade birthday cake...And since it was a Sunday & I have all the time in the world, I baked another cake for my office mates - a 'pep-me-up' for those usual Monday blues.

The result? Boy oh boy! To see that surprised look on my dad's face when he found out that the cake he's eating really came from my kitchen is priceless! He actually thought I bought the cake! What I get in the end from my dad? Showers of kisses & hugs...That's the best thing a daughter could ask for! Thanks Daddy! I love you....

As for my office mates, the cake ( which is around 1.5kg ) was gone in less than half hour!! It's so fulfilling seeing your friends enjoying the food that you prepared for them...The best feeling in the world for me ;-) The result? Believe it or not, I received two orders for my carrot cake!!

Oppss! my cake is about ready...I better attend to it before it burns!!! Owhhh! By the way, here's a pix of my cake which I made for my office mates...Don't mind the simple decoration as I actually did the icing at 2am ( after my dad's birthday dinner )!!! I still need my beauty sleep okay...He..he..he...

I hope to be able to show you my basket weave cake decoration in my next post...Gotta go!! My oven timer just went off!! Ciao!!
