My nephew’s birthday finally arrived, I was so excited and stressed at the same time because my sister requested me to bake cake for him. We celebrated it in McDonalds. When my sister asked me to bake for her son’s birthday party, I gladly accepted and felt very honored.
To make sure the cake I present to him is good and decent, I practiced many times. You can see it from my previous entries. Thus, now I am able to bake this special cake for him on his special day!
I am very satisfied with it! 🙂
The cake is only 7 inch in diameter. I was afraid that one cake is not only to share among our relatives, friends and ourselves, I decided to make two cakes, one of them is this Strawberry Sponge Cake and the other is the famous Oreo Cheesecake.
Up till today, my biggest challenge is the whipping cream. Even though I had many attempts on whipping the cream, I just could not get desirable results somehow. I probably do not have the round loose base which it is used during whipping in order to cream it in shape.
To hide the uneven whipped cream, I covered it with chocolate shavings. I thought I was pretty creative, haha 🙂 And for the Oreo Cheesecake, I created a face using the Oreo cookies.
When I presented the cakes to my nephew, everyone was admiring it. Some asked me whether I own a bakery shop and I was surprised at their feedback. I was so delighted! It was worth my efforts after all.
