banana day (:

last friday (if i didnt remember wrongly), jess asked me to go over to "help" her to bake cake. i think is more like help her to mess up and finish the food :D
i baked kek lapis! non cny season i baked kek lapis. WHY? coz i want egg whites for macarons! hahah. this is my third time baking it. I double the recipe and use an 8 inch ROUND tin instead coz jess's square tin is GIGANTIC. taste nice but look wise . . . hahah. then we baked banana cake and vegan choc cake. left her house at 1:30am! is so fun! (:
