Raspberry Swirl Cake Part 2

Sorry for the long break, had a busy weekend. Today we finish the cake we started in my last post on the Raspberry Swirl Cake.
Now that we're done baking the cake we're going to prepare the frosting; mix in the prepared mix from the box with 2 and 1/2 tablespoons of water and 2 tablespoons of butter.

Cut the cake in half horizontally in the middle so you have 2 halves of the cake to put the frosting in.

Spread the icing frosting on the bottom half of the cake first generously.

Cover the icing with the top half of the cake like a burger.

Spread more icing on the top of the top half of the cake and you're done!

And there you have it; Raspberry Swirl Cake.

I save a piece for you ya!

Raspberry Swirl Cake Part 1

Welcome to Wuching's kitchen. Today I'm going to show you an easy way to bake a cake that is just as tasty as the ones you buy at the cake shop. If Wuching can do it so can you!

First up grab yourself a box of quick and easy cake mix from the supermarket. Today I'm using White Wings Divine Raspberry Swirl Cake. You should find sachets of ready to use mixes inside.

Pour the cake mix into a mixing bowl, add 3 eggs, 1 cup water and 4 tablespoon of oil and mix them in well. Use a electric mixer if you like but we were too lazy to take them out or else we have to wash up later. Do it manually will do.

Keep mixing until the mixture is nice and smooth probably after a good 5 to 6 minutes of constant hand mixing.

Next we will prepare the raspberry; empty the raspberry sachet into a small bowl and get 2 tablespoons of the cake mix to mix in well...

...until it is red and smooth.

Pour the rest of the cake mix into the prepared pan lined with baking paper. In our case we decided to use 2 pans so we have 2 smaller cakes instead of 1 big one.

Then we drop the raspberry mix into the cake mix with a spoon but also drizzle it all over the mix to make swirling marks. You can make smiley faces if you want.

Pop them in the oven to bake for 50-60 minutes if you have one big cake but because we separate the cake into 2 we can bake them in half the time.

And here's the cakes after 30 minutes. Next we are going to put frosting on and eat it so stay tuned ya!

Brackets for my plasma TV

I’ve been thinking of setting up a home theatre in my house for a long time now. I’m hoping to turn the whole living room area into a mini theatre so I can enjoy the best out of all those brilliant action movies and watch all those sporting games on the big screen which must be a large plasma TV. Many people opt to stand their plasma TV on a table instead of hanging it on the wall. I prefer the big screen on the wall so I get that cinema experience. But of course the wall needs to be strong enough to hold the heavy plasma TV and it helps to get one of those plasma lcd wall mount brackets that I found at DekoMount.com where you can find mounts not just for plasma and lcd TV but also projectors and other TV stands. Plus you can find all their accessories there as well. These brackets are made to suit most brand name TV like Sony or Pioneer and are compatible with other brands too. That’s where I’ll be getting my bracket from when I get my plasma TV.

A short rant

The weather is terrible today; windy, rainy and cold. I hate to imagine what those die hard Geelong and Port Adelaide fans are feeling standing in the cold watching the grand final parade today in the city. I was there last year but this year with the weather the way it is I'd rather stay home and write paid posts instead.

Looks like the whole weekend will be like today so it's not looking great, will have to find some indoor activities to spend the weekend. Hmmm...what should I do? More blogging probably! Never mind, I'll find something to occupy myself. I always do, I hate sitting idle. I'll probably die if I stay idle so have to keep busy all the time so feel alive!

Well that was just a quick rant. I wouldn't care if no one reads this coz it's for myself, like talking to myself but instead 'writing' to myself. LOL..see you later!

The bottle of tomato sauce

This afternoon hor, we went shopping at the supermarket leh. One of the items we bought was a small bottle of tomato sauce right? As we were putting our bags of groceries into the boot of the car leh, the bottle of tomato sauce somehow dropped onto the ground and dented the edge of the cap.

It made a clink sound when it hit the ground and obviously made a dent on the cap but the bottle wasn't broken. But then again hor, how I know the glass underneath the cap not broken without opening the cap right? We will never know but it's better to be safe than sorry later, I dunwan to eat kaca later.

So Terese told me to go exchange it back at the supermarket but at first I refused because I very paiseh coz it's our fault we dropped it mah so how can ask supermarket to bear the cost right? But Terese very insistent said just go change, say it was lidat when we bought it but didn't notice just now. So I boh pien but had to go back into the supermarket to change lor. Surprisingly leh the lady in the supermarket straight away changed for me, didn't even wanna ask me why...and I felt so paiseh can die! But Terese happy so I happy also liao lor!

A better credit card

Nowadays it is quite rare to not find anyone who hasn’t got a credit card or any kind of credit line to their names. Credit cards are a convenient part of our lives and I for one have two credit cards from two financial institutions.

The important thing is discipline on the card owner’s part as to not spend beyond their means and try to keep the balance healthy but there are times when we do need to spend that extra amount for whatever reason we may have. Then we would be better off with a credit card that charges less interest and lucky for us all we can afford to shop around for a better credit card. The Cooperative Bank at Co-operativeBank.co.uk has different kinds of credit cards worth taking a look. The rate is a low 11.9% APR* on purchases, balance transfer and cash withdrawals. And if you pay the balance off in full by the due date you can get up to 59 days interest free credit. Go give them a visit to see which card suits you better.

Got free ticket

We won something again today and it's a ticket for two to see the special screening of the new action movie called The Kingdom starring Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Garner.

I dunno if this movie will be any good but I don't care coz I won the ticket so I'm happy ledi, plus I get to see Jennifer Garner also. *wolf whistle* But I think it will be a good movie with lots of action.

The movie is on this coming Monday at the Jam Factory at 6.45 pm so it'll be a night out again for us oldies. I was reading the fine print at the bottom of the ticket something that caught my attention.

Apparently they don't like bootleggers, no one is allowed entry if they have a mobile phone with cameras or recording devices. As if that can capture a good copy of the movie meh? Well I guess I have to leave my camera at home then!

Red Rice

There are a lot of Vietnamese restaurants in Melbourne but whenever I go eat in them I only know how to order Broken Rice which comes with grilled pork, fried egg, shredded pork skin with broken rice. Or I'll order pho bo which is Vietnamese beef noodle.

So then one day when I went to my favourite Vietnamese restaurant in Richmond I asked the waiter to recommend me something new. He did and it was crispy skin chicken with red rice. Aitelyu this is yum! The chicken is fried to make the skin really crispy and crunchy and you dip it in ginger and fish sauce.

The rice is red because it is fried with tomato sauce, not ketchup but some kind of tomato sauce they make from real tomato. It's basically fried rice but red, goes down well with the chicken. Yummy yum yum!

Road Traps

The roads on Melbourne's streets are full of traps, if you're not careful it'll be an expensive trip for you where ever you're going. I'm talking about cameras; speed or red light.

This intersection is in the suburb of Box Hill and I've traveled past here many times before. On one of my trips through here I noticed the light flashing away as I drove across the intersection and I shit myself!

I thought I've been caught speeding but then again I thought this was not a speed camera but rather a red light camera that snaps any car going through a red light and I was going through a green light. There was another car in front of me though. I waited for weeks for the infringement notice to arrive but it never did so I guess I was lucky or it was malfunctioning? Watch out for malfunctioning cameras on the road, you can also get fined for the camera's fault!

Mr. & Mrs. Smith

Short note: In case you wanna know, the body in the boot is Pumpkin's mother and the husband is the prime suspect. Police in USA are hunting him down. Pumpkin's grandparents are meeting her in Auckland so they can take her back to China to stay with them...poor little Pumpkin.

Anyway I was at Collingwood library when I saw on the table strewn some books and CDs that may interest some library users and I noticed something very familiar until I took a closer look...


Tiu! It's the Vietnamese version of Mr. & Mrs. Smith! This is a music CD by a Vietnamese couple but they obviously thought it would be fun to pose as Mr. & Mrs. DzUI DzE ala Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Thought I share this with you, boring day...happy weekend!

My Dell Notebook

I’ve just recently bought myself a Notebook Computer from Dell online. I’ve heard good reviews about their products so when it was time to decide which brand to get there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted a Dell.

So I log on to their website and pretty much order it right there and then. I bought the Inspiron 1420 which came with a free upgrade to a 120GB hard drive instead of the normal 80GB hard drive, it also came with a free battery upgrade as well which was the icing on the cake. So am I happy with my Dell notebook so far? You bet! If you’re in the market for a new notebook too then go visit their Notebook Shop and you’ll be glad you did.

Meet My Furry Girlfriends

Just a few minutes drive out of Healesville is a place called The Big Bouquet.The Big Bouquet is a commercial farm where they grow gerberas for the local as well as overseas markets in a grand scale.
All visitors are welcome and there are guided tours available where they will show you how they grow and harvest the gerberas but that's not what I'm here for today.
I'm here to see my furry friends the alcapas! The owner of this premise also keep these cuddly creatures for their fleece. These are gentle animals and make good pets but no one I know of in Australia has kept one for pet yet.
Alcapas are related to the Llamas and they are natives to the South American Andes. They have a life span of 15 to 20 years so they make good investments for their fleece which is shorn every year before summer.

I noticed they all have very long eye lashes which make them all look like girls so I call them my furry girlfriends!
