Surprise from Sweden

Just yesterday when i opened my letter box to collect mails, i saw this brown color thick envelope & recognised the familiar hand writting... yes is from Sylvia all the way from Sweden. still wondering what is this for then i realised oh... is for my birthday gift ;)

So happy (^o^) to receive this pretty pouch with my name & a key chain. Thank you so much Sylvia for this suprise. Evan wanted to put the key chain on his bag as he said the present was for him .. haha... but still i keep it with the pouch for myself.

Elvis Presley Pound Cake & Cinnamon Roll

Recently happen to see this fine & yummy pound caks from Table for 2 or more blog( my first reaction was i want to try this!!

True enough of those reviews, this cake really taste like Sara-Lee. Since i ran out of vanilla essence, i replace it with coffee essence which gave a strong & nice coffee aroma during the bake. Only setback was i didn't baked it thoroughly that left the bottom portion a bit too damp... but still edible, frangrance & yummy.

Cinnamon roll is always my favorite sweet bun. I love the sweet aroma of the cinnamon out from the baking oven. This time i tried the 65 degree tang zhong (water-roux)method. All the while i thoght this is a really complicated method but when i tried it for the first time, i love it. Is really easy & definitly produced a much softer & fluffy buns. It was still soft when i ate it the next day morning. You can find the recipe from HHB blog ( only different was i cream the butter (30g), brown sugar (30g) & cinnamon powder (1 tbsp) together & spread the rolled out dough. Happy trying!!
