First try on buttercream flower cake. Made for Pappa's birthday in June this year.

First attempt on an ice cream cake , made around this time last year...
From my experience, never try it without a really good freezer. The ice cream starts melting at room temperature. Which is around 30-40 oC here. Made it for my sweet brother 's 19th  birthday.

My Cake FĂȘte

My story of baking cakes began about half  a dozen  years  back. The first ones were made in an old round oven. A few years back, I became the proud owner of an OTG, which my Pappa bought for me. A brand new Morphy Richards oven with 18 litre capacity.
I have developed as a baker since. I learn something new every time I bake a cake. And , now I have enough material to write a book on 101 ways to destroy a cake, and still counting :)
This is a timeline of some of the older ones which I could find the photos of , and some of my recent attempts.

This was our Christmas cake. It's too late to wish Merry Christmas. So, have a Wonderful New Year friends...

I have been wanting to make one of these pretty little 'logs' ever since I read about 'Buch de Noel' in my french text. I have made swiss rolls before, but never this...
Guess it could be called beginner's luck...yet, Voila :)

This is a cake which I baked and decorated last week for a friend. It is a devil's food cake with a simple butter cream and whipping cream  icing...

My cousin brother's 7th birthday was on the 8th of this month [Dec]. I wanted to bake him 'an every kids dream cake'. It was supposed to be something like a ginger bread house. Instead it turned out to be an igloo with chocolates, gems and jelly on top. Anyhow,my  little bro, was happy with it , so am I :)

It was a layered cake with 2 layers of devil's food cake and a middle layer of vanilla cake...
This is one of my early attempts [in July,2013]. It is a layered vanilla cake with grape flavoured icing and strawberry syrup on top...

Hi friends,

     Today I am back with some photos of a bread that I baked today. My exams are over and I was relaxing and painting, then I thought I would bake a bread with the recipe I got from a masterclass from Masterchef Australia Season 4. It looks good and it doesn't taste so bad, so I thought I would share it with you. You can get the recipie for this bread from this site ,if you follow the recipie correctly you will get a much more good looking,delicious and nutty bread. Enjoy baking........

This time I will show you the re-creations of some paintings and photographs, that I did using acrylic paint and soft pastels. Before creating this post I have never tried putting my works and the original creations side by side. Now that I see it I think I have a long long way to go.

This is the famous painting 'The Fighting Temerarie' by
J.M.W Turner*

This is the photo of Arc de triomphe, Paris*

This is the photo of the Versailles palace in Paris,France*

*These photos are Google image search results .

A "funner" way to spend your time when you travel

       Just some of my photography skills. Hey, I know it is not much, but atleast I think it is 'funner' way to spend our time and to remember the places we have seen in the past and to relive those moments in your mind. So to my friends who dose not like photography,its really nice, try it out and check out these photos. I think you need not be a trained photographer to win the 'Pulitzer prize' [Its just my theory its upto you to make it a reality]. I am not saying that it is easy, its just that we should try to find beauty in small things and try to see things the way others don't. So, we have to be different and I think being different is good.

Can you guess who is trying to run away in this photo?
