Red Velvet Cake in the making!


Kengkawannn! It’s Thursday already? Omigud tak ready nya. Nak bawak baju ape nih? Kenela bawak baju sopan2 kann?

So today seperti yang digembar gemburkan I, ALAH, baked the famous red velvet cupcakes. From scratch hokehhh. Sorang2 je hokeh nokkk mek buat. well yeah I did ask papa how to use the oven and harassed mama where she kept all the ingredients. I did have some blonde moments though. I was so excited to make the cake, but couldn’t find one vital ingredient: white vinegar. So I went upstairs to my parents’ room. Mama was getting ready for her nap, papa was lying on the floor in his kain pelekat reading some travel agency flyers.

Me: ma, cuka katne mama letak?

Mama (berguling2 atas katil siap berstokin sejuk aircond): ade dalam fridge deret jem tu sume

Went down and looked for the vinegar. Could find any clear liquid (which how white vinegar was supposed to look like). Then found something white n powdery inside a packet. Was pretty sure it was vinegar in powdery form, but went upstairs anyway and asked mama:

Me (ketiak and muka dah berpeluh2): ni ke cuka nye ma?

Mama (opens one eye from her slumber): nanoo tu gula halus laaa cuka ada dalam cabinet kat tempat kicap tu sumeee

Papa (senyum kambing): HAHAHA cuka dalam liquid form laa itu gula sayang oiii

 

Ok how am I supposed to know that? Manala tau kot2 cuka ada dalam pelbagai bentuk n rupa kannn? Plus it wasn’t me who misheard CUKA as GULA! I only went to the kitchen to do some serious^ cooking for like once every 12 months. The first time I ever cooked from scratch is for me & azmir’s 2nd month anniversary – ayam masak lemak cili api, sayur campur dengannnnn ok tak ingat, but it was definitely 3 lauk. Siap piknik tepi tasik lagi haa ohhh old timessss oh anyway we’re nearing our 36 months anniversary next month ;)

^ by yanadabomb definition: anything other than sardin cili api, maggi, telur dadar, nasik putih, instant pasta, hotdog goreng n makanan2 yang sewaktu dengannya.

 

However, the muffins turned out beautiful *flips blonde hair*. Really gorgeous. Tak tipu nokkk cantik nokkk cam mekkkk

 

This is the kitchen. See how tidy I am everything is so organized. flour one side, vanilla essence + vinegar + pewarna + buttermilk one side. Ok ada campur aduk skit aaa tapi takde la seserabut dapur cite2 omputih yang siap main lawan2 baling tepung lagi kannn

 

Takde proper flour sifter, so alternative nya guna la watsitscalled. Ala yang tapis air udang sayur tu sume ke nama dia ni pon sifter gak?

 

ini cocoa powder + 2 BOTOL PEWARNA MERAH. Yup I used the whole 2 bottles coz website sume cakap kene guna kaler banyak, if x nanti tak cantik.

 

The cocoa powder + red coloring paste (right). Butter + sugar + paste (left). U aint seen nothing yet.

 

Tadaaaa so cantik kan merah diaaa. Ohh ohh notice the cups? Comel kan ade polka dots. Bought at ikea for rm4.90 – 65 cups.

 

i used some of the red coloring to dye my whole hair. Always wondered how I would like if I dyed my hair red heeeee :D btw that’s the cheese frosting

 

After baking for 30 minutes, this is the result. I tried 6 cups first, just in case terhangit. Cantik kannnnn kaler diaa. Rasa pon sedap hokeee.

 

Ok the shapes are like that because I don’t have the cupcake loyang in hand hence the variety of squares trapeziums hexagons etc. i know they’re ugly SHUT UPPPPPPPPPP

 

This is my first time decorating the cupcakes. Haha buruk kannn dala cair plak tu coz butter n cheese letak kat room temperature of kos la cair kan lama2 + tak letak icing dalam fridge beforehand *slaps forehead + btolkan fringe blonde*

This is the reviews I get from uncertified professional food critiques:

From papa,

Papa: HUMPH! MANIS! Tak tahan!

Me: sampai hatiiii baba ni discouraging aaaa!!!! *hinggap satu cubitan*

Papa: aduiiiii! Hang lupa ka papa ada kencing manis?

Me: alaa rase skit jee nanti minum air kosong banyak2 neutralize balik kkk hehehe

 

From mama,

“sedap nano, lembut! Mama suke makan panas2, tapi icing dia manis skit la dik. Takpe next time kurangkan gula, and nanti 2nd batch takyah letak krim untuk papa k”

 

From malyn (my older sister),

Malyn: uuummmm sedappp!!!

Me: ….tapi?

Malyn: takde tapi

Me: btol aaa? Hang saje nak jaga hati kami aaa? (we speak kedah at home)

Malyn: taklaa

Me: icing die tak manis ke? Mama papa cakap manissss

Malyn: taklaaa sedap je haaaa

 

I guess sweet is subjective to different individuals. For me honestly the icing is a tad bit too sweet *gulps down one whole bottle of mineral water*. But the texture for both icing and cake is so fluffy im giving myself full marks siap dean list lagi haaa. Takpela next time kurangkan gula dalam makanan n gosok gigi sebelum tido setiap malam.

So cmana? Korang tertarik teringin dakk nak makan jumaat nehh? Hehehe

 

Oh anyway, I miss this guy A LOT.

The poyo fatsomir and the beautiful yanadabomb

 

Sape2 pujukla dia ikot roadtrip kitaaaaa huuuuwaaaaaa ;((

Hnszz mencik aa long distance relationship. *jeling tajam kat sape2 yang dekat ngan bf/gf n bakal berjumpa masa roadtrip sambil nyanyi No Air version Glee*
