Sugee Cake

My aunt explained to me that the sugee cake has Ceylonese origins and was concocted up by the Burghers of Ceylon.  It's a really nutty, buttery and wholesome cake.  The ingredients include butter, semolina and almonds.  So yum!

National Day Cake

My Aunt patriotically made a National Day Cake for a charity event so it was eggless. But then even her vegan eggless cakes are divine.

Cupcakes for Her Pink Party

I am so lucky. My Aunt made some gorgeous cupcakes again. This time for our 'Think Pink' party where everyone wore pink. I love the butter cupcakes with the pretty pink icing and greedily devoured two of them in one go. There goes my non-existent diet. Let's just say this is all part of my new orgasmic diet where I just eat anything that's really good and avoid bad food that wastes my precious calories.

Aunty Chelli's Cupcakes with Floral Design

My cousin's home from Perth and her mum/ my aunt made some lovely cupcakes as a welcome home treat.  I'm so lucky to have an aunt who is such a great baker.  She's actually a primary school teacher by vocation, but I think she's a baker at heart.

She whips up the best Indian and Ceylonese dishes too.  I hope she reads this so that I get to indulge in my gluttony and share photos of cuisine from our ethnic group. I am very particular about my calories and won't waste them on just anything, but I love anything that has her magic touch.

You just can't stop at one with her delectable cupcakes.  The buttery cake was moist and the creamy icing, pure heaven!  I am sure the rest of the family who missed out on this lot, will be hoping for a new batch soon. Sorry for taunting you with the pictures.

BBQ Chicken

Sago Pudding with Honey Dew

Another refreshly light Asian Dessert made with Sago balls, honey dew and coconut milk.

Mutton Rolls

The mutton filling inside was hearty and spicy the way I love it. Wish I had taken a picture of the delicious stuffing.

Almond Jelly with Logan in Pastel Shades

The shapes were lovely and so pleasing to the eye. I really love this dessert which is so light and refreshing. I wonder how long it took Aunty Chelli to come up with this.

Almond Jelly with Logan

Aunty Chelli made this for my cousin's 21st birthday party. The jelly was so silky smooth and I just loved how it was presented. Beautiful! It was refreshly good too. Not like some cloyingly oversweet desserts. Sigh.....wish I could have some more now.
