Here Comes the Bride (& Groom)

The last two weeks were a blur of activities at work and schoolfront. As the last time I attended lectures was 6 years ago, it was rather difficult to re-start my 'engine'. Mine! What a difference these 6-years made. I was struggling to stay alert during classes and was trying my best to 'save' the theories and concepts to the rundown CPU in my head! My notes taking skills had also deterioriated tremendously as before I could finished jotting down a point, I would have forgotten what the lecturer just said! Ah! That is but a sign of old age!

Anyway, as the course had just started, I could still squeeze in a little bit of time to do some baking. As promised to my niece Audrey a couple of months back, I made some 'Thank You' wedding cookies to be given to her guests at the solemisation of her marriage to Marvin at the Masonic Club today.

The sugar cookies were baked in a cascading size, tiered and decorated to look like minature tiered-wedding cakes. Individually packed, these were presented to her 50+ guests at the lunch reception after the couple's 'I Do'.

Isn't this bouquet of Purple Callas lovely? They are quite difficult to come by in Singapore and Audrey had these specially flown in from Holland.

The Masonic Club is really a queer old place. Stepping inside the club, I feel as though I have been transported back to the Medieval times. I was half expecting a Knight to come charging through the heavy doors on a horse any moment. On every available inch of the wall, there were these framed up old pictures, maps and something-something(like Coat of Arms??) which gives the place a very cosy and antiquated atmosphere. In the member's area, there is even a soldier all garbed up in a very fine suit of armour!

Earlier in the week, I managed to squeeze in a brownie order for a friend and a tirimisu for a colleague returning from the USA for a home visit.

I just had to call these Supernatural brownies as they are so devillishly chocolately, fudgy and well, supernatural. I had a chocolate high just looking the batter being poured into the baking tin.

Oh no! Not another picture of a Tirimisu! This could well be the sixth or seventh Tirimisu in my blog!
