This year, it was supposedly to be a quiet Christmas for us. In fact, we spent this period looking for appliances and checking out fittings for the new abode.
Last minute, DC decided to have a birthday party for her kid and we were invited for a BBQ.
I am amazed how she can pull though organising it within a day. She even hired a company that organised laser gun combat for the kids and my son had a great time with it.
My girl didn't go for the game as she was busy in another party. H had been organising Christmas parties for nearly 3 years now. Just love her personality and she is a great host but I am sad that her girl will be withdrawing from this school and moving on to another IP school but we promised that we will keep in touch.
As usual, I didn't like to go empty handed to the BBQ so I prepared two cakes for the night.
My first attempt was the Hummingbird Cake. I heard so much about this cake but never attempt on it as there is pineapple in it. Yet I am really curious on its taste.
Though I didn't like pineapple but some how, it tasted good in cakes just like pineapple tarts. Guess cooked pineapple is better than raw pineapples.
Anyway, this cake received tremendous positive comments.
As I prepared a big tub of cream cheese frosting, the next cake I chose a Carrot cake to match it.
Though the cake looked dense but I won't say it is a failed attempt for it tasted really good.
Both cakes received positive feedback. I guess Carrot Cake is more common than Hummingbird Cake, so most want to try Hummingbird cake instead.
Both taken from the same book, Hummingbird Bakery.
Now, I guess you are already planning for your year end party. Perhaps I should to. Invite my family over for a small dinner. I am sure they don't mind the mess in my house.
Well let's see how I managed as I need to complete some orders before I do my countdown.
Have a Blessed Christmas.
