Gambar yang sungguh menggoda,
Menggetar jiwa dan raga
Oh daku tak rela
Tengok lama-lama.. hehe

Rima said...

Pergi ke kedai beli gula gula
Kalau dah tergoda dan mula tak rela
Sila lah ke dapur main dgn gula
Lepas tu bakar dgn hati yg rela

Kahkahkah... ahhh hancur pantun 4 kerat ku ini.. hahaha

Hi Rima,

Rima said...

Salam n ty. Misah.. Sonia is better but i am still the same.. How to rest when no one is there to look after my little one.. Not in the mood to bake pun yesterday.. Haizz

Hi Rima,

Thanks for the link on prima flour info. I am using prima flour for baking as well. Usually, only plain flour and self raising flour for cakes. for cookies, I use top flour as it makes the cookies crunchier.

Hope Sonia is getting better today.

Regards,
Sally

Norliza said...

Hi Rima
Hope Sonia is better now....
I'm not a baker... baru nak jinak2 walau usia lebih sikit dari u... hehe. Semalam I cubalah buat marble chiffon... dia naik cantik tapi bila kluarkan dia turun dahh.. sungguh sedih! Tapi masih boleh mkn. Takpe, nari I try lagi.

Rima said...

Ahh ok.. i dont use Prima brand Sally.. i got all my baking needs fm flour to everything else fm Sun Lik.. no self raising flour in my pantry cos i hardly use em.. dont know why i am not a big fan of SRF.. i usually will just add baking powder to my flour :o)

Rima said...

Shes better.. tak rewel anymore.. ty for asking..

Chiffon cake ni ade cerewet sikit.. sama macam macarons.. it turned out macam kuih ke?? if so tu memang normal for a first timer in baking chiffon.. cuba lagi.. the way u fold in ur egg white is important.. dont let it deflate ok.. good luck!

Edi said...

rima, have you been using a new lense? bokeh itu sangat cantik! beli lense baru eh?

and hope u get well soon!

Rima said...

Bokeh itu ape edi?? No i hv not bought any new lens.. Been using the two lens that i got at home :)

Jess @ Bakericious said...

looks so delicious, bookmarked it.

Rima said...

Yes it was.. gv it a go if u hv the time ok Jess.. :o)

Edi said...

bokeh tu yg image blur2 blakang tu.. yg bulat2 blur2 tu.. cant achieve that using lense biasa.. suke lah tgk gambar2 u!

Rima said...

ohhhh lahhhh tuan punya blog ni pun blur like sotong hahah.. for food photography i use 50mm

inahar ali said...

Rima said...

Anonymous
Wud love to adrs u by name tho..

U meant the surface or the small square that was sliced?

Anonymous said...

Hi, Ashton here...yes the top(surface)...most of ur cakes has the small squared shapes on the cake after baking...how's that? Ash

Rima said...

Hi Ash
The lines or squares on the surface are due to the wire rack i cool my cake on :)

Anonymous said...

Oh...thank u...i'm green in this field....luv ur snaps!!!

Rima said...

Ty anonymous.. do leave down ur name so that its nicer for me to adrs u by name.. tks!
