Thank God!

Yes, God is good! I uttered a prayer as I started the mixer that the cake will turn out alright as the bakes of the past 2 weeks had been anything but. Today, I had a book to check against as I creamed butter and sugar for the Pineapple Upside-down Cake.

A few other things were going through my head as well: should I make them as individual cupcakes or one big cake? I decided on using a 6-inch cake tin and had to line it before adding the flour to the creamed mixture of egg and sugar! Then I forgot to preheat the oven, omg! Fortunately, I'm using a microwave with convection oven function, so preheating didn't take long.

To cut the long story short, this is how the cake turned out. Fortunately, all my darlings agreed that it tasted good. Phew! I was so worried when I saw bubbles as the cake was baking, I called my mum to check. Anyway, with this result, I am confident that I can yield not too bad results with my trusty microwave oven! I'm so on cloud nine now! Too bad I can't eat all the bakes as I have to watch my diet. But the joy is in baking, so I'll let others enjoy!

Hi Adeline,
I've replied to your comments in my blog. Regarding the letters, I think it's because of the coming festive season, that's why the stock in Sun Lik ran out.

Thanks Emily. I have no plans yet for letters, need to perfect or practise baking first. Should not take one "success" for granted. Btw, Sun Lik has replenished stocks, but no letters, more numbers in the bottle. Bot a bottle of bears instead :)
