Monday, April 13, 2009


Well, right after the MARA interview i decided to head for the store and get some heavy cream and butter to bake a cake ^^! This is how it turned up to look like :

gahaha appashii^^

Well it did'nt turn out soft and spongy hahha but i guess it's good for a first timer ^^~ (well i did try to bake one a few weeks ago but i spilled most of the batter before baking -.-'. So, never give up yah! hahha. Btw it tasted more like brownies because i used normal flour instead of pastry flour :) Bonne apetite!~
