Apa kabar semua nyaah? I have a story from last week, about my very first attempt on making a cake. It was an Oreo Cheese Cake, but made without having to bake it. This recipe is perfect for me who lives in an apartment that is not equipped with an oven. The process is pretty easy *ehem sombongnyaa* where all you need to do is just put everything in the bowl, mixed it and put it into the baking pan. Jahaha :D I'm not gonna tell you how to make the cake because surely I'm not the expert, however what I'm going to tell you is the experience of making my first cake and what I feel about it *cewe banget yaa pake feeling terus*
Actually baking cake is a familiar thing for me. When I was little my mom often bake cakes for a special occasion or just for us to eat on the weekend. I used to help her prepare the utensils, measure the ingredients or the most exciting task was to help her hold the mixer. I always have this paranoia of the mixer gone out of control and dropped the bowl 0_O. So when I actually did my first attempt on making a cake, I felt like I'm channeling my mom and tried to remember what and how would she do when making a cake. Ow and so you know, my mom past away when I was 17th, so I didn't get much chances to learn to be a grown up women from her. This successful attempt marks a new milestone in my life, especially since baking a cake is something that my mom love to do.
Even though the recipe is quit easy, but it wasn't as smooth as what I've learned from the tutorial video on Youtube. When I tried to make the creamy layer, the cream wouldn't whipped while I've been mixed it for almost half an hour, luckily I used electrical mixer not a whisk. I don't wanna get a muscle by baking a cake ! . Feeling devastated, I took a rest for a while and googled why my cream wouldn't whipped and then I found out that I've used wrong type of cheese cream and cream. I bought the one for cooking, which will never whipped unless you willing to hold the mixer onto the cream for about a day maybe? After figured out the mistakes I ran to the groceries store and bought new cheese cream and cream and make sure it said 'for baking' or 'whipped' in the packaging. In this point I realised making a cake is not as easy as play dress up. You can not mix and match everything and substitute an ingredient with other ingredient although it is quit similar. On baking, you can be creative when you are an expert, but for beginner like me - better stick to the recipe. While, say in fashion, you can be super creative with what you want to wear and you only need one recipe, put a lot of confidence on yourself while you wear it. :)
so here are pictures of my cake, I know it didn't look pretty like in the cake shop but all my friend who've tasted it said that it was delicious even more than the one they can get in a restaurant. *thank God I have lovely friends*
|I like to wait my mom to finish mixing the creamy dough so I can lick the whisk after|

What I like about social media and blog is, you can get lots of information and knowledge if you use it wisely. Get inspired by people you follow on the internet and don't get jealous with them! This is what sometimes people fall to when using social media, they see it with negativity thus they disadvantage themselves by not getting any positive things from what they see on the internet.
