I baked some cupcakes for Mom's birthday.
It was my first time baking cupcakes, and fortunately it did not turn out too bad. . .
I spent 2 days sourcing for the ingredients from various baking shops in Singapore. First, I went to Phoon Huat to get the basic necessities and then BIY (Bake-It-Yourself) to purchase the nozzles to pipe icing with.
Speaking about piping, it actually isn't as easy as it looks! It's not as soft and easy to control as the 7-11 Mr Softee ice cream machine, that you can get a perfect swirl in one cup. . I piped the icing, it didn't look good, then I took it off, whipped it up and repiped it again. Until it looked decent.
Actually, it doesn't taste as good. Haha.
I will try and improve my recipe next time.
