4d scan

video
Heres a really detailed look at Bryan's face in motion. He was very very coorperative this morning during the 4D scan (apparently the 3d scan option gives you only pictures, and 4d includes this video). We finally got to see his face as a combination of both ade and myself.

And heres a priceless reaction from Nicholas Ooi:

German Black Forest

This cake came like a welcome to Bryan's face, if you see the above post. Its almost like a celebratory cake for Happy-Check-Out-Our-Kiddo's-face day.

The German Black Forest Cake brings Ade's baking pursuits to a new level. Now the cake is starting to look like its professionally made, with a taste to match. Incredible. Yesterday Ade said something real touching, she said "I want to make a cake which looks and tastes good enough to be Bryan's birthday cake next time. You know kids, they don't just want things to taste good, they must look good too." Next she was scraping the chocolate shavings with one of those shaving scrape tool things, perspiring heavily at the same time. Believe me, doing this cake was a tedious process, considering that she wasn't in a state to even sit or lie down for a long period of time, since Bryan is growing bigger in her tummy and she is feeling increasingly quesy as the pregnancy progresses.

Yes, it definitely will be a lovely birthday cake, done not just with skill but injected with lots of love. I am so proud of you dear.

Almond Chocolate Shiok


This is one cake i missed the day it was baked, because i only had a slice, and the rest was given to colleagues and neighbours. By the end of it, i was so deprived of it, i think Ade has to do another cake tomorrow. Else i'd be suffering from chocolate withdrawal symptoms. This cake was so rich in chocolate, it tasted like one of those dessert cakes from NYDC, chilled from the fridge, nothing better to satisfy your chocolate craving with.

Baked Walnut Mooncakes




Filled with richly delicious lotus paste, this piece of pastry is enveloped by a crust which crumbles under the sinking of your teeth. The fragile buttery exterior is well balanced against the complementary crunchiness of its embedded walnuts. You may call it a Moon cake, or perhaps Cosmic Asteroid Crumble, but whatever it is, it brings to life the season. Chang Er would be so proud.

Nursery update

Tummy at 28 wks

Bryan has reportedly flipped to an upside down position, no longer in an east west facing. Its a north south now. Because mummy said this "everytime i lie on my side, Bryan would kick on my tummy, when i turn to the other side, he would kick. But now when that happens, i ignore him. hahahahahahahahah, thats why he shifted to a vertical position"

Smart dude.

Our pastry corner

Heres a round up, of what we call, pregnancy inspired baking, entirely whipped up in one month.
Nope this ain't a baking blog, nor a purely pregnancy blog. Its what we call, a blog about creation.

Banana Chocolate





Heaven sent.

Sometimes beautiful things come all at once, unbelievable but so true it seems. God blessed us with a child, and also blessed my wife with the skill to turn simple basic ingredients into sublime layers of divine taste.

Presenting to you........... the Banana Chocolate cake.

Taste it, so good, you might never want to take bananas without chocolate ever again.
