Researcher at day, and baker at night ;) And yes, pictures from previous orders ;)

If you are wondering, I'm still blogging  just not actively like I used too. In the meantime, if you like to see the latest photos from my home-based bakery, do check out the photos and updates at Muniroh's Bakery Facebook page. I have lots of new pictures which I upload regularly ;)

Rainbow cake- 6-layer colored cake with lemon Swiss meringue buttercream

Some of you might know that I am a full time master student during the day time. I am not sure when I will be finishing my study though. If you have done your labwork in Malaysia you will know why, if you haven't done it...I advice you to nicely shut up instead of commenting and criticizing- sometimes we need someone who can empathize with our situations ;) 

12 pieces 3.4' pavlova with strawberry, kiwi, whipped cream and chocolate shave.

Dark chocolate cake with walnut, vanilla frosting and chocolate frosting

Doing labwork is quite similar with baking. Surprise? Well not really....both fields require some adjustment to get the perfect 'ingredients' (or you can say optimization). For instance in my research I need to adjust the conditions of the PCR reactions to get the desired bands (if you are not doing molecular works this video can help you to get some idea). The same goes for baking, I have to do lots of adjustments to get the taste and texture that I like.

L-R: Pecan pie, dark chocolate cake, chocolate truffle pie

The oven is just like the PCR machine - both use heat to react the ingredients. For baking, I mix up all the ingredients, put it in the oven and wait until the baked desserts are ready. The only difference is that I don't require a gel viewer or even ethidium bromide (or something similar) to see the 'products' as I can clearly see the desserts with my naked eyes. 

Delicious pecan pie :D

Red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting

The thing about my research is that I need to do lots of PCR reactions, that sometimes I am so frustrated to the point that I cried...a lot! It is even traumatizing to see cars with PCR as their registration number. The worst part is that there is a car nearby my house with that registration number (and I feel like puking whenever I glance at it hoho).

On the other hand, I don't feel that way whenever I bake lots of cakes. The only person who might feel uneasy might be my husband because he doesn't have a sweet tooth so he feels a bit traumatized to open our fridge and see lots of desserts ;)

So as promise, here are some of the old photos that I haven't uploaded yet.
