Went for a cake demo at the T-Garden Cooking School in Taman Midah the previous weekend. I alway like to attend baking/cooking workshops, you'll never know what tips you can pick up from these professionals.

The participants waiting eagerly for the demo to start.

The cake demonstration included Carrot Cake with  cream cheese frosting; Chocolate Brownies with Chocolate Ganache and Red Velvet Angel Cake with Fresh Fruits.

Whipping cream to a stiff peak.

Making the Red Velvet Angel Cake- very similar to a chiffon cake - using egg whites.

Finally we had the food tasting of the 3 cakes.

Red Velvet Angel Cake - a white cake batter tends to be a bit dry.  However eaten together with the whipped cream and fresh fruit, it makes a nice combination.

The Carrot cake was light and fluffy as it was made by creaming butter and sugar together before adding the rest of the ingredient instead of the normal mixing using vegetable oil. The brownies were dense and very tasty with the ganache.

The school offers various workshops eg making sushi, mooncakes and also the Junior MasterChef during the school holidays besides courses in Western and Chinese cuisine as well as baking course.
