Timmy Sandwich Bento

If you have a young kids you probably know who "Timmy" is. But if you don't, let me tell you a little bit about him... Timmy is a cute cartoon lamb in the show called "Timmy time". My daughter used to watch it every night. And this bento actually made last year when she was at kindergarten ツ

I couldn't keep up with bento lunchbox anymore because it's really time consuming and very messy job for me  as an amateur, also with lots of left over bits and pieces of food. This was a sandwich and "timmy" made from cheese and nori sheet.

Dinosaurs Cake

This cake I made for my friend's son, I got inspired from Debbie Brown to make cute dinosaurs instead of the fierce one.

It was a very hot day and I knew I should have make the neck at least 2 days before to support the head so it will be strong, so as I was expected the neck was a little bit broken because it cannot support the head plus the heat make worse, also the hat's streamer is all broken because of the box was moving a lot during the travel.

When I got there I quickly request some dowels to give more support and patch some broken part and putting the cake on the colder room which is her main bedroom with the AC on full :)

I never make half round cake before (for the body) and I didn't have any round bowl, so I just made an experiment using my medium mixing bowl and it worked! from what I read from someone's blog (uhh.. forgot to bookmark it) she said to put the flower nail in the middle of the bowl, so that the heat is even and the cake will cooked trough and yes it is really working, it isn't really round (a bit flat) like I wanted and I am a bit worried it will look like a turtle but it's actually ok and still looks like a cute dinosaurs. Lucky me..

Unfortunately I was in a hurry to take a proper picture at home, so I took it when they nearly cut the cake with the head getting down... and I didn't take enough picture to show the whole body and tail/ Oh well at least it wasn't so bad :)

Barbie Cake for my Daughter's 5th Birthday

I've been busy with my old hobby now.. cake decorating.  Some days I feel like doing crafting but this days I love my cake decorating. I am still cooking dinner everyday and yes Indonesian food are still my favorite! apart from easy western meal :)

My Daughter is going to school this year, but I prefer not to make bento everyday like I used to when she was at kindergarten. I was thinking that if I make her bento I have to wake up very early in the morning and by the time she have it at lunch time, it will be spoil because she have to keep it for nearly 5 hours. I don't know... maybe I'm getting fussy. The idea that says you should always refrigerate your food (isn't it hard when there is no microwave to heat it up?) is really bugger me! and even with the sandwich they suggested to put ice pack on it to keep it cold.. In this case I always use frozen yoghurt to keep it cool and by the time she's ready to eat, her sandwich is nice and cool plus the yoghurt is already defrosted and ready to eat, but I would't worry too much on winter.

Anyway.. about this cake. I have this Wilton barbie dress tin for a long time and never really use it (what a shame hehe..) so I decided to make her barbie cake for the first time... I'm quite amaze because it wasn't long process for me to decorated this cake, hmmm.. lots of cutting and sticking fondant to the cake, I just love the result... Enjoy the pictures :)
