Mission accomplished

Hey folks, how's your weekend? As mentioned I had a mission over the weekend, something which I abandoned for some times, sorry for letting you guessing but actually it's not really a big deal, LOL :D

I sharpened my baking skill once more, ever since the last time which was about 6 months ago =_= Sometimes I think I'm not a good wife/daughter as I rarely cook :P There're times which I really wanna cook/bake something but too bad there's always this lazy bug inside me.. ok enough excuses, now shall we move on? :P

But first, I'd like thank Kristy from My Little Space for guiding me on waterbath method. Thanks again! Not going to elaborate on the steps but you can view it here. I followed the exact same steps.

in the making..



nicely done~


the close up... it was my 1st attempt in cheesecake. Din't really look nice, but tasted not bad! Only thing is, the base wasn't as good as expected (though I thought it's the easiest part)



But no worries, more chances in the future! =)


On a separate note, here's something which cheers me up on a blue Monday....

a letter for me?

not a letter though, it's a pair of cute keychains all the way from Sarawak! Thank you Willie, you're really kind! I'll hang them nicely on my office cubicle ^^

  3. Hey Hayley, thanks for the shout out! I think your cake turned out perfect. The top is so so smooth. Congrats! Btw, did you keep the cake refrigerated overnight before serving? That is very important. Otherwise, the texture will be too soft to be cut especially the base and not nice to be eaten as well.

  11. Well done! Your cheesecake looks perfect and doesn't look like it is baked by an amateur :) I'm also very lazy and unmotivated when it comes to baking cos everything I bake (esp cakes) also tak jadi or not nice haha. Hope to see more of your "missions" in the future:)

  15. Hi Hayley,

    I really thought that it was a big mission...really big...I thought you're going for a scuba dive or something. But baking? Yeah..it is a really big mission because not many people can bake. Hopefully you'll do it often so that you can be a good daughter and wife and soon be a good mother like Alice, who taught her daughter to bake.

    I have to agree that the base looks ugly. But hey! What matter is the taste! I always go for the taste and not the presentation.

    The gift? Thanks for blogging about it. Although I have many readers, I think you are a special reader because you never miss to comment on each of my entry. Not many do that. I guess you are exceptional. Hahaha! Thanks once again yeah?

    Have a nice day.
