I wasn't able to make the lunchtime seminar last week but I still catered :) And I was very touched to here that the speaker's supervisor actually said thank you for the catering ^____^v really happy to hear people appreciate my baking =) =)
Then I met a friend to give her some baked goodies and she said she bumped into a work colleague who attended the seminar and said my baking was yummy ^_^" awww.. so nice to hear that =D Is this the beginning of BakingTray catering business? HAHA! who knows~
So this time I made cheesecake and cookies. The cheesecake was a bit softer than normal, maybe I didn't add enough gelatine.... I actually froze a piece for a couple of days and I have to say, tastes delicious frozen!!! Oh and if you love Cherry Ripe then I'm pretty sure you'll love this slice!
