Ugly but successful…I think… LOL! – from zero to something. Hmm… Need improvement on creaming and topping the cake… Or maybe go find some minion stuff

For the cake –

5 tbsp caster sugar

120g butter

110g cake flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/8 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cocoa powder

  1. Pour into baking pan and knock the pan.
  2. Under preheated oven of 170 degree celcius, bake for 40 minutes. (I poked with a stick and it still saw some sticking on the stick – I bake for another 15 minutes under 150 degree celcius)

The cake decided to give us a smile when it came out from the oven.

I toppled it and cool it down.

Then I slice the top part of the cake so that it is even.

My girl was enjoying the top part of the cake with her bear.

For the cream cheese frosting, I prepared while the cake was baking.
