My first ‘jelly layer cake’

It is mango and coconut jelly fruits layer cake!

Although not perfect in look, I am satisfied with the result. (I was juggling between cooking dinner, washing dish, baking buns and Gan Cheong that the three girls will wake up from nap – when hubby was out running errands!)

Plus the girls proclaims ‘it is so yummyyyyy!!’ And then Noelle says ‘mama, I want this cake for birthday, k? So pretyyyy! I like the pattern!’ 😚😚😚 Beyond words, worth the effort – though your birthday still soooo far away! Ok la, practice more to make it perfect!

The recipe (thanks Vivianne Tan for sharing):

* I changed the ‘sugar’ for the mango part to banana (so less artificial sweetness)!

Butter, extra virgin coconut oil and oats cupcakes 

I love this recipe as my cupcakes did not ‘deflate’ at all after I removed from the oven! 
The recipe is adapted from . The method is the same. Thanks to Peng Shin Chia of DHM for sharing the link!

125g unsalted butter & 60g extra virgin coconut oil

3 eggs

180g cake flour

1.5 tsp baking powder

20m30d getting her hands into preparation

Self indulge – chocolate brownies 

Adapted from:

(I saved this link for some time; and thought of clearing the half more piece of baking dark chocolate) 
I reduced the icing sugar from 250g to 50g! Really can’t imagine the sweetness level if I used 250g😨! 

Verdict: It is ‘easy’ to bake (I used less than 15 min to prepare ingredients and mix them all – let it bake by itself while we nap, 180 degree celcius for 30-40 min) – and I manage to adjust sweetness according to my liking! Really saves a lot by baking rather than store bought or even buying from homemade ones! 😝
