Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

& since we have no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Christmas is near and the mood is jolly :) One of my favorite months of the year :)

Chocolate Rolled Cake

Do you have problem using the whipping cream before it expires?  It happened a few times for me as I usually use very small amount e.g. 100g each time, and the smallest pack is 200g. Yesterday, I baked these lovely Chocolate Rolled Cake. Next week, I will bake some for my niece as per her request, so this is a practice batch and helped used up the remaining whipping cream I had from making the Matcha Azuki Beans Rolled Cake.

Matcha Rolled Cake with Azuki Beans 2

It's been raining in Singapore lately. It's actually quite nice as the rain cools the sunny island down. We only get to enjoy cool weather (< 30 degC) this time of the year.

One of my nieces is interested in baking and came over to my place to "borrow" my kitchen a few times now :D I am happy to share what I have learned so far. One evening after baking, I asked her if baking is tiring (because it is for me), and she said it's not. I was surprised with her answer and quickly realized that she was not tired because I had been the one doing all the washing! :D Thus, I told her that I would let her do everything next time, including washing :D This is important so she will realize that it is in fact quite tiring to work in the kitchen, especially in our kind of weather!
