717 Cakerie


I love birthdays!

Why?

Because there is C-A-K-E!

Ignoring the spastic decoration, this durian cake from 717 durian trading was really excellent! I mean, take a look at the innards:






It was almost 100% durian with barely-there sponge cake layers that was there simply to meet the pre-requisite to deem this a 'cake'. The durian pulp smelled soo good and tasted of good quality. I would imagine so, as the bakery is associated with 727 Trading that sells whole durians and hosts durian parties.

There was not much added cream and although the middle of the cake was still slightly frozen so it was a little icy, otherwise the cake was perfect and a hit with everyone!

This 15cm cake costs $40 and could feed about 10 people comfortably. Do give this a try if you like durian cake too. There are several outlets or you can order online and have them deliver right to your doorstep.

oh mine, the durian cake looks really.......OMG! have u tasted the one in goodwood park & angie's the choice? i hope to do a comparison. haha

jaime: I think Angie's the Choice has dropped their standards ie. their durian filling tasted less pure than 717's although still quite fragrant. Though I haven't tried Goodwood Park's durian cake, if I used the durian puff as a benchmark, then GP's also less pure. So, I'd still prefer 717 :)

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at iherb.com.  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
