Yesterday, we had a family gathering at my mom's place. It was like a "last supper" dinner for us. Coz Aunty Katherine will be flying back to USA on 3rd May, so its a time for the whole family to gather together to eat, dine, wine and catchup again.
I decided to bake 2 cakes to celebrate Mother's Day with Aunty and also with all the mothers in our big family. A must have flavour is the Bailey Cream's Sugee cake which is my mom's all-time favourite. Since it was a rich and 'solid' cake, I decided to add a nice chocolate fondant over it and painted it with lustre powder and food colourings making it shine.
The second cake was more for the rest of the family who are not into rich cakes. Its a light, cottony and fluffy Fresh Lemons Sponge cake.
Even so, this proves to be a favourite with uncle Wong..who quickly ate half of it.
We all chipped in to cook or bake something..it was more of a potluck than anything.
Uncle Andrew was busy in the kitchen cooking his famous Chilli Crabs with lemon, Black Pepper crabs too..i didn't take a photo of the Black pepper crabs as I was too busy digging into the Chilli crabs instead..super finger licking good!
my mom instructed my Brother in law to go and get some nice curries from the famous Rendevous Curry..these are what we had..
Auntie Aileen made desserts...almond jelly with icy cold fruits.
We had a good time despite the hot weather. and I am now off to get pineapples to make Pineapple tarts for Aunty Katherine to bring back to USA !!
