Hesti and Lusi's B'day Party

These are the cupcakes that I made especially for Hesti and Lusi’s b’day party. Thank you to Maki who allowed me to use her idea for the buttercream. I followed her instruction that she gave me through YM. She said she got a picture of how the buttercream should look inside the piping bag before you pipe it out. But her monitor was having a problem so she couldn’t send it to me. So based on her information I imagined in my head how I should do it. And it wasn’t that difficult at all. Mine was too dark I think. Yeah thanks to the dark lighting in the kitchen I couldn’t really see the real color when I colored the buttercream. But I was happy on how they turned out though of course not as perfect as Maki’s cupcakes.

As for the cupcakes I wanted to make something different. Something cheese and fruity…After flicking through my recipe collections I stumbled upon this cupcake recipe in my Sedap Magazine. The oroginal recipe was called Yoghurt Cheese Cake.

Here is the recipe :
– 175gr margarin (I used butter for better taste)
– 125gr granulated sugar
– 100gr cream cheese
– 100gr yoghurt
– 4 eggs
– 180gr flour (I used self raising flour)
– 1 tsp baking powder (I omitted this because I used self raising flour)
– 1 tsp lemon zest

– Beat margarine and sugar until light and fluffy.
– Add cream cheese and mix well.
– Add yoghurt, lemon zest and mix well.
– Add egg one by one alternating with the flour (and eventually baking powder) and mix well.
Do not overmix!!!
– Pour in the cupcake paper.
– Bake in the oven 180C for 20 mins.

For variations before decorating the cake I added some pieces of mandarine oranges on top of the cupcake. It made the cupcake tasted fresher and tangier.

Here is my plate at the party. The food was Indonesian of course and delicious. The choices were; rice, tempe mendoan, empal (enak bgt!), ayam rica-rica, mie goreng (ini juga enak bgt), cap cay, sambal, krupuk udang hmm what else?? Oh there were also bbq of fish and chicken but I didn’t try it because I was full already…but Whitty gobbled a whole piece of fish so it must be good 😉

Here are some of the partygoers….acting crazy at the roof of the building. And no you are not mistaken that is really Whitty there 🙂 We took him along because Lusi and Hesti were asking as a joke but we thought why not, he is still a young cat so it’s a good time to show him how to cope in different situation. And yes he was very good. Didn’t cry in the car although he was a bit nervous at the party because all of the noises and far too many people. But when we put him inside Lusi’s room he was allright meaning playing with anyone who came inside the room, eating his food (a whole big piece of fish) and of course made a little mess in Lusi’s room. Eh sorry Lus :s

Happy B’day again to both of you! hope all your wishes come true!!
