My First Birthing Experience

Alhamdulillah. Next month, my baby will turn 1 year old and that means it has been 1 year since that 3very beautiful birthing day. I never wrote down properly that one big and most important event in my life so far and I guess this would be the right time to recall my first birthing experience! (and also because he is still sleeping soundly).

Let me start by the worst morning sickness I had since I was 6 weeks pregnant. Because of that awful morning sickness I was so afraid of things that are coming. I mean come on! This is only the start! Will I ever feel normal again? Or am I doom to feel uneasy like this for the rest of my life? I can't barely eat and puking was my bff then. I know I am taking my morning sickness really seriously but that is me when I am sick. I will feel so intensely sick that I always feel that it is the end of the world for me. So emotional T_T

Alhamdulillah the morning sickness was gone totally when I was 13 weeks.

One day I found few friends sharing this link that says something like "Pain-free Birthing" and I quickly clicked on the link. From there my life had changed forever! That was the day when I met HYPNOBIRTHING (HB)! (Still so thankful).

I googled HB and I purchased Marie Mongan book from MPH online. Wanted to join the 5 days classes but husband was a bit reluctant because you see, he (ok lah me also) is quite an organised person and we did have certain plans and budget for pregnancy (that answers why we have waited for 1 year. Glad we did!) And because of that, my husband kindly suggested that I read the book first because classes are not in our budget (will be for the next bub for sure! Lol).

I felt in love with HB instantly when I read the book. The first chapter is about how natural birthing was discovered. It totally change my perspective on pregnancy, birthing and the baby. For the first time I found out that I don't have to worry too much because you are not alone. It is not a process where only mothers have to push the baby out and it is not just about the scene in the labour room. The whole family (including the expected one) is involved! (By whole family I mean the mom, dad & upcoming baby not all the grandpas grandmas cousins aunts and whatnot ya). And for you to have that easy and calm birthing you MUST practise! Yup birthing goes through the same process. Practise, practise and practise! 

So everyday I practised according to the schedule. Scary labour stories does not scare me anymore, I have becoming more positive day by day. Alhamdulillah.

Okay, birthing part! Lol! Sorry it took me so long to come to this part. I shall start with the surges I felt on 26th November 2016. My mom told me to just chill because from the look of it she does not think little bub is coming out in near time. But as first time parents we were just concerned and decided to check if everything is ok. Tettttt wrong move, wrong move.

Vaginal Examination was done and there is no opening yet but but I have to be warded because I already have active contraction, my water reads 7 and the doctor suggest to induce me. I was like "Whattt???no!!!! Induction are crazy painful!!! I've began to feel scared and cried. The doctor was really kind to cancel the induction and suggest for another scan tomorrow and they will take it from there. Alhamdulillah! but still warded for the night.

By the way, we chose a general hospital because they are completely equipped (and super cheap). It's true, the room are really nice to start with. There are 2 toilets in each room. So relatively, you will only share 1 toilet with another person. Heaven enough for RM111 bill! :D The only back side is that no one can accompany you and u cannot choose your own doctor. So bye bye birth plan! 

And with that I breached the first rule of HB, to choose gynae that really supports what you want. So essential! Take note everyone! GH has to abide by their policies, It is us that should have searched for Gynaes  (Next baby list). You can't expect people to change just for you ya.

The next day, the blood show was quite alarming (for me). So I called the nurse. The nurse said it is not alarming but let's just do the VE *sigh*. Again???

But this time good news has come! The nurse said the opening is 5-7cm and the baby is coming at anytime now! Boy! That was quick! I don't feel a thing except for the "normal" active contraction I had since yesterday. So to the labour room we go!

In the labour room, VE again! But this time they said even if there is any opening it would be 2cm max but they are pretty sure it's like 1 cm only. Okayyy push me back to the ward please!!! I don't understand what really happened but I was not pushed back to the ward. I request nicely to have no intervention but they still have to attach that annoying CTG T_T

The surges are getting more intense as the time goes by so I focus on my breathing. Until 8 hours past by and I feel like there's a bucket of water coming out of me, I tried so hard to focus on my breathing but it was quite unbearable I had to hold on to the bed. I don't want to tell the nurse because I am so afraid of the VE. Lol. So I told my "trusted" birthing companion a.k.a my husband and guess what he did? Quickly told the nurse ">< 

The nurse wanted to do VE but she saw the baby's head coming. So no VE yeay!!!. And they prepared for the loooonggg awaited birthing!

Can't wait to do birth breathing at last!I whispered slowly while holding my belly "Come on baby, this is it! Let's do this together okay? We both will try hard!". The really sweet assistant nurse brief me on how and when to push and she said if I feel thirsty just tell her she will give me some water, How kind! So the first surge came and I quickly take a deep breathe and exhale inward slowly but I can feel there's no progress. So for the next surge I tried to grunt a bit and Alhamdulillah it worked! After few breaths and few sips of water, the baby is finally out. Alhamdulillah!

Can't sleep

Life is never about competition. So don't compare. Don't compare yourself with others nor comparing others with others (errr get what I'm tryin to say?).

Go slowly or as fast as u want
Either way it's a race with one participant,
Only one.

Not between you and me,
Nor between you and them.

Let them be,
And let yourself free.

If it is a race between you yourself,
You should be the rabbit and you should be the turtle.

Pick and choose your speed,
Only you know your limit.

By the end of the day the finish line is also yours,
And yours alone.

Party planning

Fateh will turn 1 in another 3 months++ and I am now officially busy making preprations. Excuse the excitement.

So we had agreed upon close family celebration because Fateh is still small and taking care of he himself will need our fullest energy so forget about inviting people. Hubster said we can make a big one when he turns 5 😓

I disagree at first because his aqiqah was already too simple and by simple I mean no celebration no nothing because we wanted to perform it on the 7th day. So we did it online using ezqurban. So efficient! We had ours at Indonesia. They sent pictures and certificate as proof.

So I was thinking of at least a kenduri doa selamat but hubster being hubster (that one right there really knows how to negogiate alright. You will only end up saying yes. Yes, voluntarily), he does not only propose a close family get together.. but.. a getaway. Just a nearby resort but telling the idea to my mom and sil has already excite them. So I guess it is in fact a good idea.

Boo wawa and her "big" celebration idea. They didn't literally booed me lah. They just emphasizing on the pros and cons of having a getaway rather than a kenduri. In another words, reiterating every single points that hubster said earlier *ouchhh*

So I guess hubster wins this time. Ahhhh winning or losing, I still decides the team (or not?)

Butter butter butter

Dulu masa kecik-kecik, asal cerita pasal butter yang bagus mesti brand buttercup yang disebut-sebut.

Lepa susu

Tapi bila dah start baking baru kutahu buttercup tu bukan pure butter pun. Buttercup, butterlite, butterrich & seangkatan dengannya ialah lepa susu. Maknanya butter ni bukan guna 100% susu tapi ada campuran minyak sawit etc.

Butter ni pula berbeza kalau yang bentuk bata(yang berat 250g kena simpan dalam peti kalau tidak cair) dengan yang dalam baldi @ tin tu. Yang dalam baldi @ tin tu memang rasa marjerin sebab tu tak perlu simpan dalam peti. Harga pun jauh lebih murah.

Mentega tulen @ pure butter

Kalau nak buat kek atau biskut seeloknya guna pure butter. Pure butter yang famous zaman berzaman mestilah yang berjenama golden churn. Tapi disebabkan isu sekejap dia halal sekejap dia tak halal ramai yang meragui butter brand ni.

Tak perlu risau banyak lagi pure butter di pasaran. Ada anchor, tatura, le sucre, elle & vire, emborg, lurpark, scs, ballantyne dan sebagainya. Cuma harga pure butter ni memang jauh lebih mahal dari buttercup dan kawan-kawannya. Mahal macam mana? Paling murah ialah 2 kali ganda harga butter biasa.

Jenama pure butter yang agak murah pula ialah anchor & tatura. Btw, butter di Bangi kalau nak murah boleh beli di bake with yen.

Unsalted vs salted butter

Personally, saya akan guna unsalted sebab lebih creamy. Reknowned pastry chef macam Chef Anna Olson pun recommend unsalted butter supaya kita boleh control sendiri rasa masin tu.


Setiap baker ada preference butter yang tersendiri. Macam saya sendiri, ada cake saya prefer guna scs ada yang saya prefer guna anchor. Kalau buat frosting pula biasanya saya akan pilih tatura unsalted tapi kalau swiss meringue buttercream saya prefer anchor pula sebab kalau guna jenama lain rasa milky sangat.

Kan dah kata susah nak determine mana satu butter yang betul-betul sedap. Untuk mengetahui apa butter yang sesuai dengan pastri @ kek anda cara terbaik ialah cuba sendiri buat guna butter berbeza dan rasa. No shortcut 😉

Hershey's easy peasy chocolate frosting

Finallyyyy I got to try Hershey's Chocolate Frosting. So easy it will be done before you even know it! You will only need 4 ingredients.

Hershey's Chocolate Frosting

125g/ 1 stick / 1/2 cup butter (I'm using Butter Rich from Bake with Yen)
2/3 cup of chocolate powder (using chocolate powder from Yummie because I'm out of Hershey's cocoa powder)
1 cup of icing sugar (lessen the sugar to the max)
1/3 cup of milk.

1. Melt the butter. Put in chocolate powder and whisk using your ordinary eating spoon or spatula until well blended and until all the powder had dissolved.
2. Continue putting in the icing sugar and milk and whisk until frosting achieved spreading consistency.

8 bulan

Hari ini genap usia Fateh 8 bulan. Fateh dah pandai meniarap, mengengsot (tarik dada orang Terengganu kata), menjerit dan macam-macam lagi.

Mama dah dekat 5 bulan sambung kerjaya sebagai pembuat kek dan 8 bulan sebagai suri rumah.

Setakat ni alhamdulillah semua ok. Cuma biasalah bila baking tu Fateh jerit-jerit nak mama dia. Kalau ikutkan, memang nak kena berkepit je lah. Tapi tak jadi kerja la kalau macam tu.

Terima kasih Fateh teman mama kat rumah. Jadi penguat semangat mama & papa. Alhamdulillah.

Masak Sambal Ayam Simple

Suami akak suka bebeno ayam sambal. Tapi dia tak suka yang taruk segala serai daun limau. Dia suka yang pedas pedas manis sikit (bukan manis sangat ye).

The thing about masak sambal is that, bahannya ghope itu aje tapi kenapa mak cik senah buat sedap mak cik leha buat so so jek. Bila tanya resepi pakai cili kering jugak pakai bawang jugak.

Jawapannya, jeng jeng jeng...sebab masak sambal ni bahan-bahan je simple memang ada sokmo kat dapur tu tapi tekniknya bagi akak langsung tak simple! (Tapi bagi nama simple) dan teknik ni lah yang menentukan tahap kesedapan sambal uolls.

Malas nak cerita panjang jom bedah siasat resepi.

Masak Sambal Ayam

4 ketul ayam dibasuh
Serbuk kunyit
Minyak masak

15-20 tangkai cili kering dibuang biji, dibasuh, direbus & ditumbuk/blend
1/4 cawan air
3 ulas bawang putih ditumbuk/blend
2 ulas bawang merah ditumbuk/blend
1 sudu kecil gula merah (akak guna gula anau)

1. Ayam dilumur dengan serbuk kunyit dan garam. Panaskan minyak dalam kuali. Masukkan ayam dan goreng sehingga masak. Ketepikan.
2. Dalam non-stick pan yang lain, ambil sesenduk minyak gorengan ayam tadi dan tuang ke dalam pan (hati-hati kalau masih panas).
3. Apabila minyak telah panas (api sederhana), masukkan cili kering dan kacau selalu untuk mengelakkan hangit.
4. Bila terbit minyak, bau cili pun kurang, masukkan air sedikit dan kacau sehingga terbit minyak lagi.
5. Masukkan bebawang dan gaul sehingga hilang bau (nak pastikan bawang tadi masak).
6. Masukkan gula & garam secukup rasa.
7. Masukkan ayam goreng. Gaul mesra.
8. Siap dimakan dengan nasi panas & kicap tamin (kata suami).

Ramadhan Combo Box - behind the scene

Alhamdulillah, the RCB project went smoothly. I am yet to finish few boxes and off goes the RCB.

If I can share few things that I learn from this project is that:

1. Choose your target market

Well in my world obviously there are only families and friends because I don't have fan base like all the reknowned brands have.

2. Think about their needs

For my target market, they are all fast-paced, on the go type of people. I know because during my chambering times, I really don't have time to consider (let alone think and ponder over) a small small matter and that includes ordering cake!

At first glance, u may be thinking that this is such a bummer but if you try to look deeper, they are the ones who can spend but cannot put their effort and time into considering what to spend on.

3. How much they are likely to spend

During my chambering period, my allowance is only rm1,000 per month. Apparently every single cent counts but now that everyone is stable economically but not there yet to spend lavishly, the price has to be right. If it is too expensive, target market will easily put off. Yup, no matter how "premium" your ingredients are, no matter how you market, it will not entice them.

4. Choose the product base on what your target market will most likely buy without thinking twice

So, base on the target market I have chosen, I really can't give them option because they are not the kind who can spend their time wondering what to buy. That is why I only come out with one product.

5. Capacity

Because I am the baker, the delivery guy, the purchasing department and everything else that the business needs, I have to think of something I can make really fast, hassle free and the product must be good at room temprature for quite long.

And as I mention earlier, my target market is the kind of people who are so hectic, they wouldn't order 2-3 days in advance. So most of the time I really have to have ready stock in hand.

6. Method of buying

Method of ordering & buying must also be really easy for them. Again, because the target market are busy people. Delivery is also very very welcomed by most.

After all of these are taken into consideration, I started my RCB project with a hope that maybe I can save few hundreads before raya but you know what they say how blessing this holy month would be. The sale was really beyond my expection.

Had to close the order early because my hands are full. Alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah (not complaining at all).

And I have to really thank my dear husband. He is the brain behind this project and the biggest support! Despite by his hectic work schedule, I am so touched that he is still willing to help me "catching up" with my dream. May Allah bless him.

Hope my little sharing benefits who ever is reading. Ramadhan Mubarak everyone!

Ramadhan Combo Box Part 2

Alhamdulillah..on the 12th day of Ramadhan, I am only 28 boxes away from my target sales.

I realised that figure because I was telling my husband (not complaining) how exhausted I am. All the full swing effort is taking it's toll by now and it is only the twelve day of fasting.

Then my husband replied "capacity". Man, that simple word had motivated me before but now it doesn't really do it's magic.

So I started counting how money boxes I have sold andddd Alhamdulillah! 28 boxes to go! Still exhausted but motivated (yes it can come hand in hand, at least for me).

Guess I can't undermine book keeping and accounting even if I'm doing homebase business. Ok, should put accounting classes in my to do list.

Now now a little extra stretch before finishing the crossing line?

Ya Allah make this easy for me, Amin.

Pastis Cafe & Dining The Gardens Mid Valley

Had been passing this place for years and only tried it out yesterday. Man, all those years not going to this place feels wasted now because their food and dessert were great!

We had dinner at Pastis yesterday and we tried the Dinner promo (free starter).

The starters were already so delicious! There are 2 to choose from so we chose both and shared.

(No picture of starters sorry too hungry)

The Japanese Salad is really good. The prawns are fresh and I really like the taste of sesame oil in the salad. So nice!

The mushroom soup is also so nice with chunks of mushroom inside and a delicious toast to compliment.

Now moving on to the main course, I ordered Chicken Cordon Bleu.

For a 19.90 meal, I would dubbed thee the best Chicken Cordon Bleu I've ever tasted! The crispy and flavour-y crust, the cheese, the tomato base sauce are all just 5 stars!

Husband ordered the garlic fetucinne (can't remember the name sorry). Again, high above expectation and the price is also rm19.90.

Afterwards we ordered this superb walnut chocolate tart. The ganache was really good and there's caramel sauce oozing out of the tart. Yums!

Gonna comeback for sure!

Mother's Day @ TWG The Gardens

It was actually an advanced birthday celebration for my dear husband who really really loves anything that has to do with tea.

After we were seated, we realised that the place got mother's day hi-tea special for rm100. We opted for that and after what seems like hours, I settled for Chocolate Mint Truffle from Africa and my husband chose Margareth Hope Darjeeling.

The spread were all soooo delicious and fulfilling. I know we were suppose to chat and laugh over tea, but we just don't want to spoil the tea-moment. So we were both so quiet, close our eyes while sipping tea. My baby? Oh all the friendly staffs took care of him! *That right there is like super vvip service so worth coming here man!Lol*

Everything from the Madeleine, macs and savories were great! Fyi, this is my first time tasting Madeleine (I know right T_T). The poppy seed Madeleine was so fluffy and goes really well with tea. It reminds me of our traditional bahulu and I even got myself to cicah all the doorgift bahulu when we got home. But to my disappointment, the taste and texture was not even close! Hahaha lesson learnt: there is always a price you have to pay for good stuff. The baine de rose macs were good too! 

And what really made our day is we get to learn about tea *school trip mode-feeling like making a school trip report and trying to bodek the marker* But seriously guys the attendants have vast knowledge of tea. From the soil the tea used, the temprature it was harvested up to the part where how it is prepared. And all the ingredients in all 500++ tea they have. Which one gives out chocolate flowery fruity flavor or aroma or strong mild and all those tea jargons. We both were in awe and continued to spend few more hours at the shop besides the parlour just listening about tea. We got to smell the varieties of tea and ended up buying white earl grey and red christmast to be enjoyed at the comfort of our home *apparently sipping the tea at the parlour feels much more comforting I wonder why*.

This place is definitely worth a repeat!

My personal tip for you is before seating at the parlour go smell the tea at the shop first and you will not be having a hard time ordering the tea (like us).

Nearly Perfect Brownies

Have to tweak the recipe a bit next time and cut down 1/3 of the sugar. Too sweet. I guess the chocolate I'm using is not dark enough. Anyways, other than all the tweaking I reckon that this is going to be the perfect definition of my fudgy brownie!You know what they say, 3rd time the charm!Alhamdulillah..

Genoise Tres Cafe

Tweaked this recipe from Rose's Heavenly Cake a bit and I hope it will turn out coffeelicious! I will update the recipe if the review is good.

Wednesday, 13 April 2016


I had this perfect brownies recipe but I forgot where I saved it (yup good old recipe cards still win). I really need to write down my tested recipe properly in my book this time so I won't loose it.

My definition of a perfect brownie is simple; my husband can munch it clean in 5 seconds. He is not a chocolate fan so that would be a gold medal for a brownie. Only perfect brownie can score that kind of achievement ok!

So now I'm still en route to the perfect chewy fudgy and crackled top brownie. Bear with me until I found the perfect one! Hehe..

This one is a fudgy but quite cakey brownie (baking powder alert) but I love the chocolatey goodness of it. Sharing this recipe for blog update sake -_-


250g dark chocolate (using local beryl's new intense chocolate)
120g butter (using butterlite)

3 large eggs
230g brown sugar

140g flour
30g cocoa powder
1tsp baking powder


1. Preheat oven at 170C and grease 8×8 baking pan. Cover bottom of pan with parchment paper.
2. Melt the chocolate using double boiler technique. Once melted, turn off heat and add butter. Whisk until combine.
3. In another bowl whisk eggs and brown sugar until combined and whisk in the chocolate mixture.
4. Using spatula, fold in the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder (yup i didnt sift it). Mix well until the mixture becomes sort of gooey.
5. Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for 45 minutes.
6. I test the doneness by moving the pan (slowly to the left and right) and if the brownies are done it will not have that wobbly movement in the centre. Please don't use the clean skewer test.

Thank u for reading!

Tips perniagaan

Alhamdulillah semua yang berlaku memang sarat terselit hikmah disebaliknya termasuk keputusan untuk menutup perniagaan kafe The Spot dahulu.

Kenapa tutup? Sayang dah ramai mula kenal, sewa bulan-bulan pun boleh bayar, modal besar telah dilabur dan bermacam-macam lagi bermain difikiran tatkala idea menutup kedai singgah. Memang diakui keputusan untuk menutup kedai tersebut dibuat dengan agak tergesa-gesa hingga mengguris hati bapa saya sendiri.

Tapi ketika itu baru berkahwin dan selama setahun lebih buka kedai memang inilah pengurusnya, inilah tukang masak kalau chef lari, inilah pelayan kalau waiter tiba-tiba mahu berhenti, Memang menguji fizikal dan mental. Tetapi memang inilah lumrah usahawan. Mana ada rehat, mana ada cuti. Keusahawanan itu kan gaya hidup, bukan sekadar kerjaya.

Malangnya pada waktu itu emosi memang dah tak stabil. Pekerja hanya tinggal chef pastri. Saya masuk kedai tutup kedai lemau je sentiasa. Padahal itulah yang dinamakan cabaran. Saya pulak terus rasa penat dan penat. Kalau dulu motivasi wang ringgit pun jadi, tapi masa tu semua benda rasa penat. Kalau boleh nak urus rumah tangga sahaja.

Sebenarnya, kalau masih mau meneruskan ketika itu saya hanya perlu bercuti dan rehat seketika. Kembali bekerja dengan minda yang positif!

Tu dia tips no.1, jangan takut untuk rehatkan minda. Biar lah orang nak kata apa. Janji perniagaan jalan~

Tips seterusnya:-

2. Banyakkan bergaul dengan usahawan lain. Mereka akan saling sokong menyokong.
3. Jangan ikut kata orang. Terutama cadangan yang menggunakan wang. Perniagaan kita, kita lebih tahu.
4. Kakitangan sangat penting.
5. Cari pembantu yang boleh dipercayai (biasanya di kalangan ahli keluarga).

Rasa macam banyak masa nak mula tulis tadi. Tak mengapa sambung lagi nanti yang penting sekarang saya banyak belajar dari kesilapan dan pengalaman.

Anak dah merengek minta susu. Sekian.

It's in the jeans! *fashion alert*

Every girl needs at least a pair of perfect-fitting jeans in their closet to be worn casually. Jeans are very comfortable and trendy in mysterious ways. The latest designs might excite you but you have to constantly remind yourself to choose one that would fit you just right.

Thanks to the modern technology now we have a plethora of denim jeans out there in the market.However, going out for shopping at the mall can be exhausting as trying on jeans might sound fun but can be awfully tedious! 

The best jeans fashion styles for me would be anything that is comfy and of course compliment my whole look. As a hijabi, I prefer jeans that is not too tight, oftenly straightcut. These are some jeans fashion that I would go for:

Perfect Pavlova

Dulu pernah kongsi resepi pavlova kat sini. Tapi bila buat #throwback, masyaAllah rasa nak delete je blog. Nampak bebeno pavlova nye tak jadi..melepek je.. *sorok muka bawah laptop*.

Berbalik pada tajuk post. Tajuk tu perfect pavlova bukan sebab pavlovanya perfect sangat tapi teringat beberapa tahun lalu pernah dijemput mengajar membuat pavlova di Kolej Pendeta Zaaba UKM dan program tu dinamakan perfect pavlova.

Masa tu memang terjojol bijik mata tengok. Ye la kita pun ikut pengalaman sendiri je buat. Entahkan jadi entah tidak tiba-tiba dibaginya nama perfect pavlova untuk program tu!

Jadi, untuk mengenangkan pavlova yang konon-konon perfect tu saya kongsikan resepinya di sini. 

Perfect Pavlova

Alat-alat yang diperlukan:

Parchment paper (tak boleh guna kertas lain seperti aluminium foil etc melainkan alas silikon sahaja dibenarkan)
Mangkuk pengadun
Piping Bag
Cutter berbentuk bulat berdiameter 4inci

Bahan untuk pavlova:

4 biji putih telur / 167-170g
1 cawan gula kastor / 194 g
2 sudu besar tepung jagung / 13g
2 sudu kecil cuka / 8ml

Bahan untuk krim:

1 cawan dairy whipping cream (suka jenama Shani lebih berkrimmm~)
1 sudu kecil esen vanila
1 sudu kecil gula aising

Bahan hiasan (boleh ditukar mengikut selera masing-masing):

Buah strawberry
Buah kiwi
Coklat ganache

Cara-cara membuat pavlova:

1. Panaskan oven pada suhu 150 C. Kalau nak senang guna convection oven (oven yang berkipas). Tapi saya guna oven gas berjaya pun menjadi. 
2. Pastikan semua alat-alat bersih, tidak basah dan bebas minyak (kalau terdapat kesan minyak atau air lagi sila lap). Untuk mendapat putih telur pun pastikan telur dan tangan kering.
3. Mulakan dengan memukul telur menggunakan mixer dalam mangkuk pengadun. Gunakan kelajuan yang sederhana dahulu (takut putih telur terpercik-percik). Bila dah mula berbuih boleh lajukan mixer. Masukkan gula sedikit demi sedikit sambil pukul dan pukul sehingga stiff peak forms dan apabila mangkuk diterbalikkan putih telur tak jatuh.
4. Masukkan tepung jagung dan kaup balik menggunakan spatula. Disambung dengan cuka. Pastikan bahan semua digaul sebati dan mesra.
5. Sediakan parchment paper di atas loyang. Menggunakan teknik capan (haaa bukak balik buku pendidikan seni darjah satu dulu), terapkan sedikit cutter ke atas putih telur dan capkan atas parchment paper tadi. Menggunakan teknik ni, anda tak perlu susah-susah lukis bulat satu-satu guna pensil. (Teknik ni juga boleh digunakan untuk membuat macaroon)
6. Setelah selesai mengacap (betul ke perkataan ni?), masukkan baki adunan ke dalam piping bag dan pipe adunan ke atas bentuk-bentuk bulat tadi.
7. Masukkan ke dalam oven. Setelah 10 minit, turunkan suhu kepada 110 C. Teruskan membakar lagi 20 minit sehingga pavlova nampak kembang, kering dan rangup. Tutup oven dan biarkan pavlova menyejuk di dalam oven.
8. Langkah yang ke-7 ni sangat teknikal di mana oven tidak semuanya sama. Kalau boleh cuba dahulu satu biji. Kalau jadi baru bakar yang lain. Yang penting, jangan buka oven selagi pavlova tak sejuk.

Cara-cara membuat krim:

Campurkan semua bahan, pukul sehingga kental. Kalau dah nampak kental jangan teruskan pukul nanti krim pecah.

Hiaskan mengikut cita rasa anda.

Selamat mencuba! Kalau nak buat sikit, boleh guna sebiji sahaja putih telur dan bahan lain bahagi empat.
