Battle of the Sexes!

She wants vanilla, he wants chocolate. She wants vanilla, he wants chocolate! In the end, I baked 2 sponge cakes - Vanilla & Chocolate! I'm referring to my twins' request for their birthday cake. I don't want to bake two separate cakes for them, I'd rather prefer them to have the same cake. So in the end, I combine the vanilla and the chocolate sponge cakes to have a "Black & White Birthday Cake"! With Hello Kitty design for her, and a Ben 10 design for him. I also alternate the sponge cakes and halved the cake for each of them! Heehee...;)

In the end, they're satisfied and I'm happy with what I have created specially for them! The twins will be five years old this coming Tuesday! Happy birthday to my wonderful twins-Allyson & Anders!



With some time on my hand, I baked two loaves of Cheese Bread from Alex Goh's "The World of Breads". These cheese loaves included some almond nibs. They looked real nice though!



Just for fun, I drew on the breads! ;) Enjoy!

I have the same problem trying to meet my two kids' different taste buds! Luckily they are not twins, I doubt I will be able to come up with such a great idea! It's my turn this week to crack my head on how to go about making my boy's bday cake, wish me luck!!!

Hi Fiona,
Thanks! The kids are just enjoying their "special" day & holiday these two days!
YES! I understand your problem. That was why I only bake small cakes for them. Otherwise, how to finish so much cakes, and so many times of celebrations?!?! :p
