Carrot Cake

I am so exhausted. I am so tired. I just need to relax but that just sounded so impossible to my ears! Reality check... Yes, it is IMPOSSIBLE. I have loads of clothes to sort out, house to put back in order and documents to sort. How I wish I have a genie who can help me, just by snapping her fingers.... haha..... dream on mama....

Anyway, let me just roughly recall what I had done these couple of days. Last Thursday, brought the kids to IOI Mall to watch AVATAR. It's a nice movie with beautiful and colorful sceneries...making me feel like I am in there! The kids enjoyed the movie as well. Was planning to go and watch another movie the next day but I had adhoc orders from Nora. This is Nora's third time ordering from me and I don't mind helping her out even though given such short notice, because she's such a lovely customer. Not fussy at all, which makes my ideas flow easier. She had asked for 50 pieces cupcakes and a carrot cake. She just told me that she's taking the cakes to a party for her nephew who excelled in his PMR recently. Not specific design requested, alhamdulillah.... less stress less tense! That's for the cupcakes but not the carrot cake! I told Nora that I am not good at decorating a whole cake and I don't really know which carrot cake should I bake. But Nora said she's very confident that I'll manage! Funny, how people have great trust in me and I am still not confident with myself! Yeah...that's MamaFaMi for sure! I must go to a motivational camps huh? Hahaha....

So here are the cupcakes that I had baked for Nora and alhamdulillah she's okay with them..... I just love to see the looks on her daughter's and niece's face when they saw the cakes. Thanks again Nora for ordering and really hope that you're satisfied with the taste as well as the look... mama jual ye....

As for the carrot cake, I took the recipe from Rinn's fotopages. Thanks Rinn for the lovely recipe. When I tasted a slice, I said to myself... who said MamaFaMi doesn't like Carrot Cakes! *wink*

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

200g grated carrots
150g grated green apples
30g roughly ground almonds


250g cream cheese
