Halo halo halo…. long time no see…. being awhile since I last visited my blog…. being busy with other stuff. Among other things is my new found passion… decoupage. Well…. may be not really my passion but rather my new “hangat hangat t*** ayam” hobby hahaha. What is decoupage? Wikipedia define Decoupage (or découpage) as ” the art of decorating an object by gluing colored papers cutouts onto it in combination with special paint effects, gold leaf and so on”. Decoupage in my humble opinion is very suitable for people like me who is not that talented or creative to create their own decoration muahahaha…. seriuosly… all you need is pretty serviette, some paint, glue and varnish.
Okay… recipe for today is Vanilla Sponge cake that I baked about 2 weeks ago. It was a hit and one funny thing happened… I asked my daughter to send 3 slices of this cake to our neighbour up stairs. This neighbour of ours has 3 daughters and they are in same class as Aina, Nurin and Sofea. What happened was, when Aina sent the cake over, the youngest girls opened the door and without telling other sisters, she ate all 3 pieces by herself and by the time the other two realized it, it was all gone…. her excused was the cake was so nice and she thought that it was all for her hahaha…. so I tell you… this cake is very nice and quite easy to make. So, if you are planning to bake a cake, please try this recipe from Rahel. Happy Baking!
