First Blogersary

My Blog is now a year old .. i remember exactly what hb said to me that night.. "You bake every single day.. why dont u create a blog so that Sonia will be able to learn a thing or two when she grows into a young woman".

By creating this blog I am greatful that I have made good friends all over the world via the blog experience. I've even met one of my Blog Friends.. Sue, of "Waking up in Adelaide" when I was in Adelaide last year. I've received a lot of positive feedback and comments, not even one negative experience.  

I hope that this first year is the first of many to come and that I can leave something for Sonia for when she's older and starts baking. Maybe one day I might even bind all the recipes into a book! Lets see...

A big "Thank You" to all of you who visit and for leaving your lovely comments and dont forget to hv a slice of ohhhh so so sinful brownies fm me.. :o))

To tell you the truth...i'm so so so envious..your cakes, your deco, your photography...high class ok!!! But i am also happy for you, your blog have grown so much eversince i've seen it for the fist time. Very impressive ok. In fact it was the reason why i started baking...konon nak buat macam kek you lah..hehehe. Anyway, congratulation gf!!! Keep it up. Tak dapat buat kek macam you dapat tengok aje pun i enjoy dah :))

Congrats Rima! Your blog is truly awesome. Penuh dengan cakes and cookies and macaroons yang melelehkan air liur.
And most of the stuff you baked memang orang2 malas mcm I takkan rajin nak buat like all the kek lapis so cuma boleh drool aje tengok your photos, hehehehe.
Well done!

Hi Rima,

Salam kenal :) I'm a singaporean, residing in NZ now. I juz stumbled upon ur blog y'day and i'm so luving all ur recipes!! Your cakes all look so yummilicious...yummzzz and i'm drooling...hehehez.

I'm having a dilemma with my u haf any tips to using the fan oven?? I'm not a frequent baker but i used to bake simple cakes and muffins in my old electric oven (the one w/out fan). I tried baking cakes in the fan oven and haiizzz....the cake comes out dry and overcooked on the sides and lembab in the middle and sticky on the top :(. Same goes when I'm baking my bread or buns...the middle ones doesnt cook as good as the sides.

I've always wanted to create my own food blog as suggested by a few friends coz I put up photos of my home cooked food on Facebook. I thought what's the use?? There seems to be a million other wonderful blogs out there. But now...I do agree with ur HB's's for my daughter when she's older. I will try to start day lah, biler tak malas...hehehez.

Anyway, tks for taking time to read my comment XD.

Best regards,
anie :)

Salam kenal Anie

Oven.. heheh i am still learning fm my newly fan oven.. for more than 18yrs i hv been using my convection oven to bake and it was so so easy.. i dont hv to worry abt anything.. but when we moved to our new place and the kitchen came with a built in oven i began to experience difficulties... now i think i am getting familiar with my fan oven.. did u use upper and lower heat element to bake ur cake?? i used it each time i bake whatever lah except cake lapis.. another thing that i notice abt my oven, whenever i bake cake.. 20 mins into baking i will hv to place a piece of aluminium foil (i apply butter on the foil) on top of my baking pan... kalau tidak the top part mesti burnt..

To create a blog or not.. that was me a year ago.. 365 days and 350 odd recipes later.. i am a one proud mama hehehe..

Hi Rima,

Tks for replying me and tks for the tips :) Me too...I have this oven dilemma since we moved into this new hse with the built in fan oven...but till today, I still cant figure the oven out...haiizz. Selalunya when I bake cakes...I use the funtion yg ada fan symbol & bottom line. I guessed that's why my cake mcm overcooked. Then there was once I used upper and lower heat, the cake got very2 burnt on top. Now I know to cover it with an aluminium foil. But just one more question...kalau bukak oven while cake is 20 minutes into baking, the cake won't 'bantut' ke? hehehez...Maaf yea tanya soalan bodoh....XD

Thanking u in advance for ur time. Keep on baking and sharing...luv ur blog :)


Rima said...

Hi Anie
Nope.. so far so good.. just make sure u do it after 20mins.. usually i will keep a look out once it hit 15mins.. by then i already so kanchong nak tutup pakai aluminium foil hahaha... dont like the burning colour lah on my cake.. nanti nak take photo tak pwetty hahah

Hi Rima,

Rima said...
