In my last post, i said that i wasn't going to bake due to exams but you know, i tend to release my stress by baking plus i really really wanted to make full use of my spanking new majestic yellow KITCHEN AID! :P
*note: my new mixer purchase wasn't just an impulse buy but my trusty cheap mixer died so i had to invest in something larger! prettier! and it had to have my new fav color-yellow!*
First i wanted to spend a couple of hours making Y's favorite Madeira Baby but i also got distracted by vanilla sugar cookies! Oh i hate having the feeling of wanting to do soooo many things in the kitchen in very limited time. I took out the butter from the fridge and sat there thinking of what to do next.... Madeira or Cookies or Madeira or Cookie Madeira or Cookie Madeira or Cookie Madeira or Cookie Madeira or Cookie???????
After all the debate in my head, i ended making both Madeira cake with buttercream meringue and vanilla sugar cookies. That took my whole of Sat and Sun but i'm happy and stress-free!
Another session of caake photography.
Here goes the cake walk!
