Simple Thoughts

I was thinking during earlier of the week what I shall bake for my friend's birthday gathering. I wanted to bake chiffon cake initially, but the box will be quite bulky for me to bring from one office to another office for a meeting. The idea of baking creamed cake was also out. Finally, I settled on pound cake (again!!) Okay, I really have to admit that it's one of the easiest cake to bake, take and give. No frosting required, easy to pack. Simplest for lazy people like me. :p I also thought that since we are going out for buffet dinner, there should be nicer and better cakes in the cafe, so I might was well bake something for her to bring back. I baked two pans so that I can cut some smaller shares for the rest of my friends.

I also bake some peanut butter cookies the night before. The peanut butter cookies were...not that crispy crunchy, but were really fragrant alright! I also packed some for the group (which I was glad I did!)

Anyway, we had our celebrations at Cafe 2000, M Hotel. I thought it was really worth mentioning this place as the food, the service and the prices were all good! Using Citibank credit card has a discount of 1 for 1 at $40+++ per pax (before discount). This is a semi-buffet where you get to select your main course from a menu with five varieties. They have buffet table of sashimi, salads, seafoods, some cooked food and a good spread of desserts! What's more, they arranged for a rather big slice of cheesecake for my friend upon my request. And a couple of the service staff actually sang the birthday song for her. She had a very pleasant and unforgetable evening!

Hi Jane,
I think you've became a pound cake specialist. You can bake all kind of pound cake huh!! The cake and cookies is nicely packed! Simple and nice. I would like to buy some of this packaging to give a way too! Cheers!

Hi Grace,
Hahaha...not really. Partly because I wanted to perfect it for my next workshop, and also because I still have cream cheese in the fridge.

I got most of my packaging from Daiso. You just can't go wrong with Daiso, can you?
