It was my mummy’s 60th birthday over the last weekend. For the first time I attempted an ice cream cake! Its kinda easy and the fun part of it was that the her grandchildren could contribute too! I made a vanilla chocolate macadamia oreo ice cream cake. The little ones had a lot of fun whacking the Oreo cookies into crumbs with the rolling pin to make the base for the cake. Here it is:-

We decorated with a little chocolate bunny as my mummy was born in the year of the Rabbit according to the lunar calendar. Also to add some colour, we threw some M&Ms on top! The sides had half pieces of Oreos as the side of the cake are not perfect as can be seen from the picture. 😉 All was consumed after the birthday dinner.. lip smacking!

So for the very next day kindy bentos for the kids I made them …”cake” theme! A three tier cake on top of that. It’s a very simple bento with a piece of really soft chocolate swiss roll from Sun Moulin, Isetan, the cheese “flavored” three tier cake and some fruits.

Bento finished till the last crumb!

Am creating my first post from the iPhone WordPress while putting my girl to sleep. All because time is so scarce these days and connection to the virtual world is limited. But it’s kinda cool blogging this way! 😉

Today’s bento for the two little ones consist of fried rice with my mum’s home made fish cake and egg. She whipped up the best bouncy fish balls n fish cake from mackerel. 😉 Made 2 little bears from the same fish cake that was pan fried n steamed awhile.

One other highlight of today’s bentos are the little blackened chicken karaage that I made following Maki’s Just Bento book. I did not have any sake with me and I substituted it with Chinese wine! Haha! They taste different but still yummy! Next time will follow straightly. 

Here are the bentos! I can’t rotate the pictures on this app so “sorry”! 

Once again, its been a long while since I’ve posted my bentos. Its really not easy with the lack of connectivity at the new workplace. Previously, I could take a short break to put up my post but now it’s impossible. After work roles i.e wife and mother do not allow any spare time for blogging and I also needed my beauty sleep. 😀 Btw, for those who are still reading my posts, how have life been treating you all? Hope that all is great for everybody despite all these natural disaster that is happening around us. 

Once again, here are all the bentos I made while I tried to adapt to the “no connectivity” work place.
