Cold oven method for Japanese sandwich bread with raisin yeast water

Have you ever tried the cold oven method to bake sandwich breads? This method allows you to bake your bread in a cold oven and  then raise the temperature. This allows you to proof  and bake your dough. It is fascinating to see how the dough rises in the oven and is quite simple as well. There is a high chance that  your loaf will be taller than the original way that you bake.  Of course, it tastes good too!

If you haven’t tried this method, then I strongly recommend it!

Here is Cold oven method: https://raisinyeastwater.com/2011/12/10/cold-start/

And, my Japanese sandwich bread with raisin yeast water: https://raisinyeastwater.com/2012/02/09/japanese-sandwich-loaf-with-raisin-yeast-water/

This is the best sandwich bread that I am willing to share with you.

It is odd to see the loaves on the grass?

Birthday cake for my daughter. ( Without recipe)

Yesterday was my daughter’s birthday.
The theme for the party was pirate themed. Therefore, I made this pirate ship cake for the party.

Using fondant was my first try. It was easier to use when I left them out for a day just like the instruction said. It has way too much sugar for eating. Plus, I don’t like candy that’s too sweet. I love sour candy though. 🙂
I didn’t want anyone to eat the fondant anyway. They were just for display lol.

Here are some pictures of  the cake pops that I made for her birthday party at school.

For the strawberry cake pops,

I used whipping cream for the filling instead of the stored cream which is way too sweet for me.
Also, I made dehydrated strawberries for the topping and fillings as well. I wish I could take a picture of the inside.

For the chocolate cake pops,

I made chocolate sponge using real chocolate and then once again,  adding whipping cream to mix them up. It tastes like chocolate truffle.
