My bakes for ex-colleagues


8th Sep 2010

Meeting up with 2 ex-colleagues, BY & CY. It's been awhile since we last met up, probably the last time was during New Year Day. Due to work and family commitments, we been delaying our dinner date till the eve of Hari Raya. I decided to bake somethings for them since I was rather into baking for the month Sep 2010. Tried out the cranberry shortbread recipe from Audrey Tan's workshop.


Cranberry & Orange Shortbread (Round)



Cranberry & Orange Shortbread (Rectangle)


Shape into rounds and rectangles. These cookies are delicious and very buttery.


Shortbread in Gift Box


Packed them nicely in the plastic box where I got it from Phoon Huat.


Pandan Chiffon Cake


I also baked them each a pandan cake using my latest favourite recipe (cooking method).

Hope BY & CY will enjoy my bakes...cya!

Hi Wen,

Just curious, what brand mixer do you use to whip up your yummy cakes? Kitchen Aid?

Regards,
Sally

Nice treats in very pretty gift boxes. I'm sure they will like it!

Wen said...

Hi Sally,

The box is not air-tight. I have to seal it with tape. They come in different sizes but I can't remember the price already. I think is less than a dollar for one.

I'm using a Kenwood Chef mixer & a Kenwood handheld mixer for all my bakes.

Hi SSB,

These boxes are really nice to store baked treats for gift but a pity it's not air-tight...

Hi Wen,

Thanks for sharing information. The boxes are pretty. Is the kenwood handheld mixer good? I know that the kenwood chef is a good mixer. I am using a philips handheld (cost less than SGD100) but the mixer becomes quite hot after using it for approximately 5-10 minutes.

Regards,
Sally

Hi Sally,

I think Kenwood handheld mixer is about the same as the Philip one. It's heat up easily too, usually I will use it for whipping diary cream or making something small portion. Most of time, I will use my KW Chef.

The boxes (and the shortbread) look so pretty!! The chiffon cake looks really good too, and it sounds really interesting! I might give it a try next time I want to make chiffon cake =)

Hi Loraine & Miso,

Hi Von,

Hi Wen,

Tks for your info. Will try this recipe soon..

May I know which oven you are using for your baking? Is a table top or build in? Any comments? I am now sourcing one and hopefully to get it before christmas :)

Tks,
JJ

Hi JJ,

I'm using a build in oven and i think is the simplest and cheapest model in the market. Brand is Indesit.
