I may have found a new hobby.. BAKING! Well actually, I’ve always love baking, in fact much more than cooking but since Azwaj does not really fancy cakes and the likes of it, I became sort of lazy to pursue it.. I mean I can’t possibly eat all those baked stuff myself right. So much like buying wholesale jewelry at bajulimports to get my fashion jewelry fix, I just get my cake dosage at the local bakery whenever I feel like it.
Anway, last Saturday, I was fortunate enough to have been in Singapore to attend my BFF, Salwah Omar’s, baking class. Salwah is my BFF from junior college and while still maintaining a professional career, she is also an entrepreneur taking orders for wedding cake, cupcakes and conducting baking classes.
The class I attended was for tartlets making. Basically it covers how to make the tartlets shells and for filling, there was blueberry cheese tart, fruit tarts and pecan filling. Since I wasn’t there officially as a student, I offered to help for the day and since it was a demo and hands on class, there was plenty to help around with. So after the students did their first round of tartlets shells, I manned the oven while Salwah taught them how to prepare the filling… but guess what Salwah was nice enough to have prepared enough dough for me and another one of her helper to do our own tartlets… so I got to bring home some of my very own tartlets to share with mommy. I especially love the Blueberry Cheese Tartlets and am sure I will set some time of one these days to do my own… my baking hobby renewed!
