Assorted Bakes

Have been busy baking past 2 weeks, partly fulfilling some orders.

Although it was tiring to bake after work, at least it was a therapeutic process (faced much grudge and grievance at work >_<)

Carrot, orange & walnut cupcakes with white chocolate cream cheese frosting - box of 16. One of my favourite recipes and cake. Quite tedious though, long list of ingredients to prep.

Cream puff with custard filling. Relatively easy to make. I must start experimenting on other filling flavours like durian, chocolate...

Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Cupcakes and Valrhona Dark Chocolate Cupcakes - undecorated. They looked so bare without any frosting! These were customised for a colleague's house party - kids and adults could do some hands-on frosting on the cupcakes.
Bags of Swiss Meringue Buttercream with different piping tips - vanilla and chocolate flavours were prepared for self-frosting.

Some decorating samples and ideas for reference.

Happy news :D
I ordered a 58L oven and it'll be arriving this coming Saturday! Been looking forward to it since I've been baking with a 18L oven all these while and it wasn't productive as the oven can only bake a small batch at one go. Although I have another Microwave Convection Oven, some bakes didn't turn out well (e.g. Chiffon cakes are ok, but not cupcakes).
I have a long list of recipes to attempt for 2 upcoming parties and really excited to try some new recipes!
