Devils Food Choc Cake with Cream Cheese< Choc GAnache and Strwberries, tq Amizah!
It was a chaotic week last week! With office load and Muhammad and Hajar were not feeling well...think I had about 3 hours sleep daily! I took Tuesday off, thought of finishing my macaron shells and went for some pampering and menicure pedicure.....but the weather? It rained and was super damp that day, or the egg white or the ground almond was moist....I busted 4 batches of macarons that Tuesday morning (there were feet and all but they were very gritty and the feet was not even!)...and I busted 2 more batches in the afternoon...shouldn't have used the same stuffs when the whole thing was wrong....grrrrrr to say the least!
A very last minute orde....25 pieces Red Velvet Cuppies for Engagement Hantaran, tqs Liza
Anyway...I had all those orders and pick ups on Thrsday, Friday and Saturday....life has to go on, the show was on...I made some more macarons that night using new ingredients, fresh egg whites, and the night after and the night after........

I cooked Beryani Udang for makan-makan at the office on Wednesday...but Thursday morning we were woken to hub's uncle's passing...Pak Uteh dah cukup hukum, I put everything down, and left for Muar...It was a day trip, and we got home at past 11.30 that night....penat can't describe how we felt.....but well...life moves on....

I managed to complete all these orders, but a bit kecoh on Saturday when I realised that I didn't do a "Happy Birthday" wordings nor have any appropriate candles, while the person picking up the cake was already waiting at my doorstep and I was having my brucnh....oh my! Thank God for a very understanding Amin and Amizah...in a dash I drove to Bagus to get some candles....
