今天分享的是为参加比赛（第三个级别）而制作的蛋糕。一直想要试做这样的直立式卷法的蛋糕，藉由比赛，赶走身上的懒虫，顺利让蛋糕“生”出来。蛋糕做得很匆忙，事情碰巧都落在那一周，一堆忙不完的事，幸好来得及赶在期限前一天把蛋糕赶出来~ 蛋糕弄完凌晨3点。。。ZzzzZZZzzz 累死~
蛋糕体沿用我最爱的蛋糕卷食谱，把菜油换成溶化奶油~ 原因之一当然是因为比赛主办者是奶油公司~ 另外是想说奶油在冷藏后会让蛋糕体变硬，有助于让蛋糕直立。呵呵~ 是有帮助啦，不过“切”和“卷”也会影响蛋糕的直度。我的底部那一片蛋糕不是很平，蛋糕又卷得太高，可能也切得不平（原本就是想要一个高高的蛋糕），最后的成品有点倾斜，我都跟朋友说那是比萨斜塔柠檬蛋糕，哈哈哈哈哈~

August is a very long month for me, especially last week. I was so busy in the kitchen mainly to practice on the swissroll and try to work something for the "SCS Star Bake-Off" final Bake-off. Yes, I got into final with the help from my cousins, family member and friends! Thanks to everyone! You guys are awesome!
Before the event, I received email and were told there are 2 themes on the bake-off, but only ONE theme was revealed: Rollcake, and we have only ONE hour to finish both bakes. ONE hour!!!!???? 2 bakes???? Plus one bake unknown??? While I am not sure what is the other theme, I can only try to roll as much cake as possible to make sure that I would flop it on the day itself. I finished almost 50 eggs in 4 days. Of course we won't be able to down all the cakes, can you imagine cakes volume made from 50 eggs???? How scary it was! I told hippo ah pa, after the competition, I am sure you won't see rollcakes for at least 6months! Hahahahaha!
I didn't won the grand prize of course! Anyway, that is not what I am after from the beginning, so I don't really feel sad for not winning. =) But I feel upset with some of the fact I found out later after the competition is over. But well, let's bygone be bygone, I sure do not want to put it here and remind myself about the unhapiness each time I re-read my own blog. =)
Oh, I am happy to share that I have actually won myself SGD1,000 worth voucher to attend classes at Palate sensations! I am attending my first class on 13 Sep to learn how to make an Opera cake! How nice! I am so looking forward to it!
Here are my bakes along the bake-off event, from 1 star to 5 stars, and of course som picture at the event.
1 Star "no theme": Yogurt Butter Cake
2 Stars "Cookies": Korova Cookies
4 Stars "Pie": Otak-Otak Quiche
