I had some passionfruit, harvested from my garden, frozen for a year.
They still looked and tasted fine after being mummified in my freezer for that long.
It became a cake that was well loved by my family.
I had been keeping this post drafted for very long, and since this month's Bake Along's theme is Bundt Cake, I think I better dig it out and make myself be less lazy and blog. Sadly, this will be their last theme too. I rarely participate because I can't quite keep up, not even with a month's notice. This cake was baked in a Savarin pan, not quite a bundt, as a bundt cake needs to have fluted sides.
I adapted my Orange Yogurt Muffin Cake recipe into a passionfruit one, and I used one extra egg... of which was not a good decision. My cake's side curved in a bit, but the cake was really tender.

My 2nd girl, Lyanne was once crazy about all things yellow... and that makes Belle her favourite Disney Princess.
Back in 2013, I made her this cake to celebrate her 5th Birthday.
I do try my best to make cakes without food colouring and the best way to make a yellow princess cake, is to use mango. And the mango slices made a nice frilly dress..... I love the outcome of this cake.

2 of my 3 kids are down with on and off fever, with the highest temperature recorded at 39.5C. Many of their friends are down with fever too. Schools in the states of Perlis and Kedah are closed to keep children indoors, as public schools do not have air conditioning.
In my school, ice water is available for the students and all outdoor activities are postponed until further notice. This heat is not our usual hot days.

My 2nd daughter was going to have a bithday party and she asked for a Mermaid themed party.
As I planned out the menu, I thought of making a finger food menu, food that can be eaten without cutlery. And I will try to incorporate as many homemade food as possible. And most importantly, food that can be prepared in advance and reheated on that day.
One of which I planned was chicken nuggets as dear daughter doesn't eat Chicken, as in chicken, but she eats chicken nuggets. Cooking for her is always a headache as she can happily say no to everything and eat plain rice happily. So, to make things better, I decided to make them myself, in the shape of fish to suit her theme.
