Happy Mother's Day

Yup... now I can finally say this.
I don't know what to get for my mother-in-law, who lacks nothing, and my mum, who don't want anything. So the only thing I know that they cannot buy with money is what comes out from my oven.

So I decided to bake them and also my sister-in-law their own Mother's Day Cake.
If you have read the previous post, you will know that I had started baking since the night before.

The cake failed to be baked ... in total, I failed five times.
I don't think it was the recipe but largely due to me.
This morning with the fifth try, I was at the verge of giving up.
And then I found another recipe and tried it again.
It finally worked.
So I continued to bake another 2 more.

Here is the mould that I bought few days ago.

This is my first try... see how badly burnt it was.

Then this is me, sitting and staring at the oven and praying that the cake will work this time (Superpig thought it was cute to take this picture.)

And here is Aver hoping to get my attention (please ignore that camera strap ... Superpig has problem taking pictures.)

Now, after the sixth try.

Here is the third successful one...finally!
The filling in between the layers is durian puree... pure durian!
