This is a birthday cake for 13 babies who is turning 1-year-old this month.
Haha, I was bit nervous about writing 13 names on top of the cake – what if the 13th name can’t fit in the space? What if I make a mistake on the spell? …. I only had one chance to do it, and I’m so glad that all the names fit perfectly!
2 different colours on right and left for boys and girls as requested.
The cake with filled with fresh fruits and whipped cream.
13 babies…. the party must had been gorgeous

A special order from my friend for her son’s birthday. Chocolate cake with lots of fresh fruits!
I used chocolate sponge and whipped cocoa cream, topped with handmade ganache
The side of the cake is covered with white chocolate.
… I think I over-whipped the cream a little :I
It was a birthday party for 2 boys (similar birthdays so they combined the party together) and boys love Thomas, so I made a small Thomas the Tank using chocolate. Does it look like Thomas the Tank??
Boys were happy, and it all matters

Another birthday cake I made last week
Lots of fruits – especially strawberries. They are in season now and super sweet!
I should have asked beforehand if I should use peanuts…. It was my big big mistake I should be more careful of what I use on my cake. (I’m sorry… :((( ) I hope everything was fine….!!
Decoration. This is my favourite part of cake making.

First, I’d like to say thank you to everyone who messaged me through this blog and email. I feel much better and strong knowing that I’m not alone and there are people who read my blog from many countries. It’s kinda amazing feeling.
I’m gonna write about an amazing food I had last night. This is banana-cheese-pastry thingy (I don’t know the proper name!) that my sister-in-law brought from Indonesia. It’s so yummmmmyyyy. It’s from Bandung city (in Indonesia), she said. It’s got a whole banana and cheese inside, kind of melty, and doughy throughout with crispy pastry on outside. I don’t know how to explain the taste, but it’s somewhere between sweet and savoury. Very interesting.
There are many food in the world that I haven’t met. I do want to go to many countries and try these things out someday.
Oh, I’m actually going to Bali in November this year. Believe it or not, it will be my first trip to Bali! Even though I have an Indonesian husband, I’ve never been outside Denpasar airport. Actually, my husband has also never been to Bali before! Haha. So it will be our first Bali experience.
Going to Bali is kind of the thing that I can look up to. It had been a rough idea of me and my dad who is in Japan, but now we are booking air tickets and accommodation in Bali. My husband, Hiro, and I are meeting my dad in Bali who will fly from Japan by himself. It will be great holiday for all of us.
What I want to do in Bali – I’m not pretty sure about it yet, as I have no idea what Bali is like, but I think we’ll get massage and eat lots of local food. Near the beach, probably. I can’t wait to take my dad to eat Indonesian food. I’m sure he will love it!
