May Daring Bakers' Challenge - Cream cheese strudel with honey

The May Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Linda of make life sweeter! and Courtney of Coco Cooks. They chose Apple Strudel from the recipe book Kaffeehaus: Exquisite Desserts from the Classic Caf├ęs of Vienna, Budapest and Prague by Rick Rodgers.

For this month's challenge, I was meant to make apple strudels but somehow my apple mixture didn't turn out like expected so i had to use something else for the filling. The only thing that was left in my fridge was cream cheese! Ta-dah! I then decide to go  with plain cream cheese strudel. 

There you go:-

Rating: D (This challenge was a big failure to me cause my pastry and filling didn't quite turn out right or expected)

Cancer Council Biggest Morning Tea cupcakes

Remember my previous post on CCNSW BMT event?

Yes, it's finally here this week!!! 
Although i cannot host a morning tea myself but this year i've decided to donate some of my cupcakes (free of course!) to others who are holding the event at their business, community and etc. I wish them all good luck for the event! :)

I'm making a massive 350 cupcakes!! My very great helper Jan Nee (the one who inpires me to bake and does heaps of baking herself) and I are going to work all night Tuesday and all day Wednesday

To those of you that i couldn't help out, perhaps next year, if i get more helpers, i would be able to provide more free cupcakes for the event!

Strawberry and Cake Pops Bonbonniere

Hello Everyone!
How's your week been?

Your question must be "What's been going on in the kitchen this week with Lilia? "

Well, basically i've been busy trying to get some ideas for H's bonbonniere. I can say that more things have been going on inside my brain than in my kitchen! *laughs*

H's wedding is not till Oct but I just thought i'll try out some of my ideas before presenting it to her. Also the fact that i can't wait to put my ideas into action.

H has requested for strawberries or cake pops as the bon-bon and her theme colors are red and white which helps match the strawberries color. We both liked the idea of having a tin pail decorated with either strawberries or cake pops and that also helps give the guest table a color boost. It's like a multifunction bon-bon. Table decoration and bon-bon as well! Definitely a $$ saving option :)

I've used several backgrounds in these pictures:-

Pink and Purple Christening Cake with butterflies

These are the picture i promised!

I practically did a all round 360 shot of this cake. A good way to make full use of my new Nikon baby ;p

I've used the roses i made yesterday as the topper with purple butterflies. What do u think of it? Leave me a comment and let me know!

I've been questioned several times on how the cakes are stacked and i thought i'll give a little insight on how i do mine :)

First we start by covering the board with fondant and use your favorite ribbon to cover the ends. The board will then look like this

Close up on the ribbon i used. I bought this from Lindcraft at the lace section. Like it? I think it gives it a very classy touch to it.

My ribbon box. Have a dig!

First i covered the bottom tier with fondant

The smoothen it out with a smoother to get a finishing look.

The top tier
Lightroom-30


I've use two dowels (they are actually really thick skewers which i called dowel) in insert them into your bottom tier like this

Then use royal icing to cover the skewers which also helps to stick the top tier to the bottom tier

Last step is to place your top tier on top of the royal icing bits

Finally start decorating!
