Work has been insanely stressful today. Other than the regular workload, I have additional marking of exam scripts. It was insanely stressful this afternoon as I marked the P4 EL compos. So even though I got home late, I had my dinner and went into my kitchen. To me, my kitchen is my haven. Baking/Cooking brings me to another world where my worries melt away. I'm just thankful that I had some energy left in me to bake.
Having had some Ribena left coupled with some fruits from baking my mummy and ma's cake over the weekend, I decided to do some of these Vitagen Ribena Cups.
Btw, here are the cakes I baked for my mummy and ma over the weekend! (:
Ma's Pandan Kaya Cake..
Mummy's Mango Mousse Cake
With a pretty box (:
Anyway, I love pretty cakes (:
This recipe takes about 2 hours to bake and I'd rate it a difficulty level 3 out of 5.
