I arrived in Melbourne last week and was already invited to a birthday party that night. The birthday party of my boyfriend's 3-year-old niece, Sarah. There was plenty of child-friendly food - birthday cake, fish balls, crabmeat balls, skewered fruit kebabs, chicken pie, char siu pastries, pandan cake and jellies.
Turns out Sarah's mum, my boyfriend's sister-in-law made the birthday and pandan cakes!! They tasted amazing and looked like shop-bought cakes! Apparently, when she got married, she did not have a clue how to cook...but a few years later, she has become a domestic goddess!!! In some ways, this has inspired me to try and become a domestic goddess too. I want to be able to bake my children's birthday cakes one day! I tried to make fail-proof chocolate chip cookies but it was an epic fail - link here => Domestic Goddess Project #1. But I am determined not to give up...and one day, WHEN I succeed, I will post up my photos here because it will be food porn!! LOL
