Merry Christmas, everyone! A day late, but hey, it is still Christmas!

The days leading to Christmas were so busy. Tons of last minute shoppings and bakings, in addition to the usual parties and events as well as church practices. Nonetheless, these are part of the fun of Christmas, my favourite time of the year...

So what did I bake for Christmas? Take a look below:

Chocolate Banana Cake (based on wonderful recipe from SeaDragon with slight changes.)

More Chocolate Chip Cookies (recipe from Williams-Sonoma). Supposed to be crispy, but mine still turned out chewy (???).

Triple Layered Chocolate Oreos Cake for brother's birthday. (truly yummilicious, thanks to Fatboy for recipe. I use my own recipe for chocolate sponge and chocolate ganache.) - (FAVOURITE RECIPE)

Tiramisu (laddened with alcohol, the flavour gets better the longer it sits in the fridge (i.e., days not weeks or months, mind you). I had a slice 3 days after making it, and I couldn't stop at 1 slice. Recipe taken from Kitchen Capers - see sidebar for link). - (FAVOURITE RECIPE)

Once again, have yourself a blessed Christmas and a fantastic New Year!

Thanks, Meiyen. You too! :)

Hi Anonymous,
Thanks, but I am not a very good baker yet. Still a long way to go to get there.

Hi Gina,
Such a pleasant surprise to see you here. Know that you would be very busy but hope that you still enjoyed your Christmas and New Year nonetheless!

Wanna ask is there a particular brand of rm and liquor to buy
Also did u use a tupperware to make the tiramisu ?

Hi Sukkimi,
No, there's no particularly brand of liquor to buy although most would use a coffee liquor for Tiramisu. Popular ones are Kahlua, Baileys and Tia Maria.
Also, you can use any plastic container.
