Tom & Jerry

This is my first buttercream birthday cake in 12 years.

I have a love-hate relationship with buttercream --- I just hate working with that stuff.... but ALL my teahcers told me that buttercream is the mother of all cream.... master that and you are on your way in cake decorating.... But still......

Well anyway, at midnight with a migraine throbbing and the one million dollar question, "Why did I ever agree to do this?", my family and I finished the cake.

This morning, the look on the birthday boy's mother's face and her grateful 'Thank You'  wiped away all my exhaustion and the million dollar question was answered.

Here's the cake.... If it doesnt look like Tom & Jerry .... pls let me know... Tom looks real angry to me ...

Homechocs with Chef Amer

At last, after weeks of hundreds of emails, phone calls and co-ordination, the specially arranged class for the Homechoc Group took off.

I'm most proud and honoured to delcare that my friend, Master Chocolatier, Chef Amer delivered what he promised and much more. He shared his years of experience and knowledge with unbridled passion and his willingness to share was more than generous.

Alongside the knowledge delivered and techniques taught, the atmosphere was electric with jokes and jibes coming thick and fast from the Master Chef. I must say some of them hit bullseye. There was no room for the sensitive and narrow minded.

The group soaked in every word the CHEF spoke like a sponge -- eyes getting bigger, mouth gaping and finally "WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW" and then the very familiar, "I didn't KNOW that" . And this is coming from a group of entrepreneurs who are producing and selling chocolates and some of them instructors themselves. Look at the photos below.... all look so tensed.... even the chef.... so much to learn (we say)... so much you want to squeeze from me (chef says)..

This brings home my personal Maxim ---' That no matter how great YOU THINK you are, no matter how much YOU THINK you know, you can always still learn from somebody; be it a beginner or the Master. The least you can learn is what NOT to do.'

My heartiest and grateful thanks to the chef -- Master Chocolatier Chef Amer Hamzah.
Also my appreciation to the group for their support.

Now enjoy the sights.
