Orange Cake

I guess I am in for writing today! I've just finished updating MamaFaMi's Journey of Life and boy...did I write! Hahaha... Hope Mak Teh is happy with my ramblings! Well, it's not only her who said they want to read more but a few others. Layman had left a comment in one of my entries, asking why I don't reply to all the comments left in my blogs. My sincere apologies to all of you for not replying to your comments. It's just that time is normally not on my side nowadays. I had to 'steal' some of my bedtime to update the pages. But I think, I have to lessen that unhealthy habit as well, now that I kept experiencing giddiness plus I sweat easily. My aunt told me to check my sugar level and I did it this morning. It was near to perfect I guess. 5.8 (fasting). Only my blood pressure is slightly not normal today. It was 141/83 with pulse rate of 65. Yes, eversince my parents came to stay with us, we have these gadgets with us. To monitor them and now me! Hahahahaa.... I guess I am the nurse cum the patient as well! Easy said... I am ALL IN ONE!!! Hihihi..... May Allah give me strength and good health to carry out my responsibilities... amin....

Yesterday I thought I could do without baking, but my willpower is not that strong... Daku kecundang jua akhirnya... All thanks to Muna .... sampai hatimu Muna, mendera diri ku ini.... Well, it's from her links that I got hooked to the Perwakilan The Hague's Page! After saying a few NO NO NOs to myself, I finally settled for one recipe first! Hahahaa... which means, there'll be many more to come! It was 9pm when I made these cupcakes. Actual recipe is to bake one whole cake, but I just gambled and made them into cupcakes. Walla.... it turned out LOVELY and surely this recipe is a keeper! The cupcakes were ready just in time for me to bring for Syahmi's tuition teacher and also to serve my aunt and uncle when they came to do my mom's dressing. Managed to ice a few cupcakes. I had always wanted to ice them that way, but then it didn't turn out the way I want it to be. I have to think of something else... later... or maybe....never... hahahaha..... Thanks to Muna and Perwakilan The Hague for sharing this wonderful recipe with all of us....
And oh.. yesterday was the first time I drove at night, alone... just for my record... hihihi.....

    Ada chemistry between you and cupcakes ye? Mama pun rasa, bake cupcakes lagi selamat. Agak sukar nak terkena masaalah tengah tak masak kan? Tapi kalau buat whole cake pun sedap juga. Simpan semalaman dan ia akan jadi lagi moist! Ooola laaa.....
