Wrong date......

Yong: This was suppose to publish on Wednesday but I've been busy and back from office around 9.00pm.This few week I will arrive home quite late and not sure if I can blog everyday. Anyway, on Tuesday, I took a day off to bring Mika to the vet. I thought it's time for yearly vaccination. You know that Mika likes to ride in the car but when I put inside the cage he really pissed off.

Mika: Do I have to be inside this black prison?

Mika: I hate you!

Mika: Lucky no one here yet.....I'm the first to arrive.....

Mika: What is my weight? is good?

Yong: Good Mika, your weight is maintain at 6kg.

Yong: Due to my oversight, Mika should has it vaccine in July, but I presume it's in Jun. So, Mika just take his weight, get his worm medication and vitamin C. I have to plan another leave in July...

Mika: You waste my time, you make me sit in this uncomfortable little space.......

Red velvet cupcake

Yong: Well.....I should post this yesterday but I was so sleepy to continue to upload the photo. Anyway its never too late to wish Happy Father's Day to all great father, daddy, ayah,abah.....and many name that relates to our special man.

As Mika said from last post I fulfill my sister promise and make red velvet cupcake. I made it!

Aqie happy assists his Daddy cutting the cake, he even open the gift for his Daddy. By the way, he also gave his present......the new hair cut!

Back to my red velvet cupcake, I got the recipe from Food Channel Network and it was from Paula Deen. I like it! Let me share you the recipe:


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cocoa powder

1 1/2 cups vegetable oil

1 cup buttermilk, room temperature

2 large eggs, room temperature

2 tablespoons red food coloring

1 teaspoon white distilled vinegar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:(I only made 1/2 of the ingredient)

1 pound cream cheese, softened

2 sticks butter, softened

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar

Chopped fresh raspberries or strawberries, for garnish( I use colour sprinkles since that the only that I have)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 (12-cup) muffin pans with cupcake papers.

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. In a large bowl gently beat together the oil, buttermilk, eggs, food coloring, vinegar, and vanilla with a handheld electric mixer. Add the sifted dry ingredients to the wet and mix until smooth and thoroughly combined.

Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake tins about 2/3 filled. Bake in oven for about 20 to 22 minutes, turning the pans once, half way through. Test the cupcakes with a toothpick for doneness. Remove from oven and cool completely before frosting.

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla together until smooth. Add the sugar and on low speed, beat until incorporated. Increase the speed to high and mix until very light and fluffy.

Both was taken by Kak Dik to her office

Mika: This is what it look like. I don't know why Kak Dik love this cupcake so much! May be because of the cream cheese....

So moist, velvety look and definite a keeper recipe....

Unfair week.....

Mika: Hello kitty friends & human friends, to night I want to share my disappointment over Yong before I go to sleep. I need to release this burden so that I can get my beauty sleep.....Here goes the last weekend stories....again disappointment! Only today she free to open her lappy.....

Mika: Yong I want my dinner prompt o, I see you start measuring the cake ingredient. I bet that my dinner will be at 8.00pm

Yong: I'm not baking anything for 3 weeks now, so on Sunday I decided to try Marble Nutella cake from Kak Rima. I start a bit late almost 6.00pm, yes Mika already sit near his eating area waiting for his dinner. But I'm too busy mixing the batter, after I've put the cake in the oven, by the time it was almost 8.oopm and with guilty face I gave him the rice and fish. At the end, the cake is not what I expected to turn up.

Yong: The ugly cake! You can compare with Kak Rima's:

Yong: The cake taste is delicious despite the not so good looking cake. I'm not sure what I have done wrong, I will try again this cake within 2 weeks time. This weekend I made promise to my sister to make cupcakes she graving for a long time. I already found the recipe in Food Network Channel. I hope will not face the same thing with this cupcake.

Mika: Finally, I got my dinner. I had unfair week....Yong treat me as second in everything.

Yong: We equal then, I had a bad baking day!
