cookies

cookies dalam toples


cookies pesenan Dini...
resep dari ncc, dan hiasannya masih ngikutin mbak Peni. sang instruktur hias waktu les cookies di ncc.. Maapken daku ya mbak, masih blajar menghias dan ngikutin stylemu. (mati ide kok terus terusan..hehe). Tapi... ada behind the scene nya ni:
daerah rumahku kena giliran lampu mati dari jam 4 sore tanpa pemberitahuan. sementara cookies baru mulai dihias. kirain cuman sebentar, ternyataaa.... duh, takut gak kekejar waktunya harus bikin 25 toples, akhirnya lah mulai menghias ditemani cahaya lilin... romantis engaaaak.. stress iya.. haha.. untung punya oven gas, buat matengin ni royal icing. kalo oven listrik mungkin bisa lebih stress lagi gak nyala. seperti orang jawa bilang, semua pasti ada 'untung'nya. lampu mati...'untung' punya lilin... :)

cupcakes for 10th anniversary Morula



This was last weekend order from RS Bunda (mother and children hospital) that got me pretty stressed. The event was the 10th anniversary of Morula on Sunday at the rumah kaca, Taman Menteng.

the confirmation order was just a day before me leaving out of town. 200 cupcakes and a mini cake. ok, still got enough time to do the order when i'm back in Jakarta Friday. Call ina larizz to order the edible image logo. All set.
but then...
Thursday: change the order to 400 cupcakes... panic mode-ON... do i have enough flour etc for 400 cupcakes...??? Not enough time to order more edible image...!!!
Friday:... missing my 1 o'clock plane and had to take later flight to Jakarta at 4...
stuck in loooong traffic from airport...
had to pick up my borrowed cupcake stand from Mbak Fatmah (thank you thank you thank you atas pinjamannya:) ...
not enough time to go to buy the ingredients!!
Saturday: ngerayu.. ayaah... bisa ga ke titan gak bliin barang-barang yang kuraaaang? ok. so finished the whole day baking cupcakes.
D-Day: just found out that decorating 400 cupcakes takes more time than baking them... ha ha.. woke up really early in the morning and only have time till 2pm... hurry... hurry... hurry... Finally got to rumah kaca... deliver the cupcakes... and.. BREATHE... BREATHE... YAAAY...
then have to hurry again because we promise to have lunch with the whole family, and my sister and her boyfriend who just came to visit Jakarta..
the lesson: Need to have better time management next time :)

earl grey cupcake



another strawberry choc chip order for tomorrow.
OK, Done. and i still have alot of time before Zs bedtime.. hhmmm... let's try a new recipe..
adapted from 'Cupcake' by Sue McMahon
Earl Grey Cupcake
ingredients:
5 Tbsp boiling water
3 Earl Grey tea bags
150g butter, softened
150g light soft brown sugar (aku pake palm+castor dicampur)
3 eggs
150g self raising flour (aq pake segitiga biru ajah)
direction:
Preheat oven to 190C
Pour boiling water over tea bags and leave them to steep for about 5 minutes, then remove the teabags, squeezing the liquid out of them.
in a bowl, beat the butter and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy, then add the tea, eggs and flour and beat until smooth.
Divide the mixture into paper cases and bake for 15 to 18 minutes until the cake have risen and firm to the touch.
Remove the cake from the oven and transfer them to wire rack to cool
hasilnya..
aroma tehnya kerasa banget. tapi a bit too sweet for me.. maybe i'll reduce the sugar next time.

white and pink bday cake




"yan, gue mau pesen kue lo yang waktu itu di complain terlalu sepi..."

nah lho... kue dicomplain kok malah mau dipesen??? ternyata emang si pemberi order ini termasuk orang yang suka minimalis banget. pokoke jangan ada hiasan yang heboh-heboh.... gitu katanya... dan ini adalah one of my loyal customer, jadi pengennya jangan sampe ngecewain dia....

ya wes lah... sempet bingung mau di decor apa ya? takut kerame-an. deg-deg an waktu mau diambil kue nya. maklum.. si bakul kuenya ga ada dirumah. jadi dititipin aja sama asisten..

alhamdulillah... commentnya:
"Nek! the cake looks great... the taste is great.... " fiuuuuuhhhh... lega......
