Chocolate and Oreo Pudding

This pudding inspired by Roz @ Home Kreation's Heavenly Milo and Oreo Jelly. I really love the idea of hers by putting my favourite biscuits - oreo inside the pudding. :) Here, I'm submitting this post to Aspiring Bakers #24 (October 2012) : Jellies and Puddings hosted by Charmaine of Mimi Bakery House.

Cake Decorating Class

I've been waiting to join Richard Goh's Creaming/Icing Class from the day I saw FatmumBaking and Bake4Fun did 2 years ago, finally I just completed last week. The class was conducted at Community Centre, if you are interested, you may search at onePA website. However, if you miss his course this year, then normally you need to wait at least a year for him to teach for the same course, cause beside creaming class, he also teach other basic baking classes.

Total class are 8 lessons, with different theme everyweek. We need to bring our own sponge cake, it could be one or maybe two per week. It was quite challenging class, we were having fun there and all the baking classmates was quite friendly & helpful.

Here are my cakes, hope you enjoy .......

Week 1 : Simple Piping Cake

Week 2 : Cake Basket

Week 3 : Cartoon Character

Week 4 : Number or Alphabet Cake

Week 5 : House Cake

Week 6 : Doll Cake

Week 7 : Longevity Cake

Week 8 : Wedding Cake (Final)

If I never join this class, I don't even think that I will ever or dare to do these varieties of cakes.

So ...... which one is your favourite cake? :)

Basic Sponge Cake

I baked this cake for few times and really delighted with the cake texture: soft, light & spongy. Thanks Sonia for the recipe :)

4 Egg yolks (large)
20 gr Caster sugar
50 gr Oil
60 gr Milk
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
90 gr Cake flour

4 Egg white (large)
1/4 tsp Cream of tartar
60 gr Caster sugar

- Preheat oven to 160C **
- Lightly whisk egg yolk with sugar.
- Add in corn oil, milk and vanilla, stir to combine.
- Add in cake flour, mix well, set aside.
- Beat egg white & cream of tartar until foamy, then gradually add in sugar, beat till stiff peaks.
- Take 1/3 portion of egg white mixture and use hand whisk to mix with egg yolk mixture till light. Fold the balance of egg white mixture into egg yolk mixture, combine well.
- Pour batter into (see note ##) 7 or 8 inch pan, bake for 60 mins or until cook.

Note :
** Sonia baked this sponge cake at pre-heated oven at 140c for 25mins (at lower rack), then increase to 170C (at lower rack) and continue to bake for 30mins.

## Sonia suggested - don’t line with paper and don't use a non-stick pan. However, my experience, I lined the paper in the pan, the cake rise well too.

So, why made so many times, not even see any cake posting ..... hehehehe  .... check on my next posting :)
