My new Disney silicone cake moulds! I love Mickey Mouse so I’m very happy with the two Mickey moulds 🙂

I’m gonna try them out later this week, making buttercakes. Also plan on using them to make 年糕 for Chinese New Year, yes still months away but just thinking ahead…

want to put my new toys to good use!

 Unfortunately after years of searching and longing, I have yet to find these Mickey Mouse cookie cutters/stamps


and Chip ‘N Dalecd01








so if anyone knows where I can buy these please let me know!


Phew, long title huh!  Such a mouthful LOL!  I didn’t make it up, the Winter Plum Blossom Flower Flaky Mooncake is a recipe from Alan Ooi from Y3K cookbooks. I decided to shape some into chrysanthemum pastry as well.

Spirals turned out ok. No, the bottom didn’t burn!  It’s  filling that leaked out during baking because I didn’t seal it properly 😦

I finally caved…after having drooled over all these yummy foodblogs that are out there for years, I have decided to create my own.
But be warned, I’m very lazy and am also not a very good photographer so don’t expect frequent postings with pretty pictures!
My first post is of these very popular Horlicks doggie cookies that I made a while back.
Recipe horlicks doggy
(makes 52 pieces)

180g butter
80g Horlicks

100g chocolate chips ( I used chocolate sprinkles for eyes and nose)
200g top flour (I used all purpose flour)
25g corn flour (corn starch)
25g milk powder
One packet of Koko Krunch ( any type of crispy chocolate shell cereal will do)
Sieve top flour, corn flour and milk powder.
Cream butter and Horlicks for about three minutes at low speed. Do not overbeat.
Put in top flour, cornflour and milk powder and beat for about one minute to form dough.
Divide dough into 10g each. Put three chocolate chips into each piece of dough and roll into balls.
Insert two pieces of Koko Krunch to form the “ears” and a chocolate chip in the centre for the “nose”.
(I used 3 chocolate sprinkles to form eyes and mouth instead)
Bake at 140 deg C for about 25 minutes. Leave to cool before storing in an airtight container.
