167. Dumbo!

Here's one of the last few orders I've made before taking my break...A Chocolate fudge Dumbo cake! It was real fun to make. I hope the birthday girl was surprised by her elder sister's gift!


















Three more novelty cakes/cupcakes coming up in the next 2 weeks!
In the meantime, here's a picture of my Honey Granola bars I made for my Hubs today. Took me only 15 mins to put together, 10 mins to bake and another 15 mins int he freezer to set! He says that they are supremely yummy and after having had 2 bars, had to be stopped by me from munching down another few! Hee...













I'm happy to share this recipe for all you aspiring bakers out there!

300g Granola (or you can mix cornflakes, rolled oats, dried fruit, chopped nuts and wheat germ clusters as per desired amounts to make this weight)
1/2 cup honey
250g unsalted butter
4 Tablespoons sugar
Dash of cinnamon powder (optional)

Method: Preheat your oven at 175 degrees Celcius.
1. Melt butter, sugar and honey in a pot on medium heat until you obtain a uniform syrup which bubbles slightly - about 8minutes.
2. Pour the syrup over the granola mixture, add the cinnamon powder and mix thoroughly until the syrup coats all the grains.
3. Press the mixture onto a shallow 10" x 8" pan (or any suitable pan you have).
4. Bake for 10 minutes in the oven.
5. Remove from oven and slice into your desired size. Slicing isn't exactly what you'll be doing - more like "separating" the mixture as it is soft.
6. Chill in the freezer for 15-20mins or 1hr in the chiller or until set.
7. Eat and enjoy!!!! Please, however, do not over-indulge or you might have to hit the treadmill for longer than you usually do!
