Ingredients For Homemade Ice Cream

When a chef is making homemade ice cream, they should collect all of the ingredients to make sure they have enough vanilla, cold milk, salt and heavy cream along with other flavorings such as chocolate morsels or almond slivers. To make individual servings of homemade ice cream, use small ice cream cups instead of a large container. These containers are often decorated with colorful designs or embellishments such as a restaurant’s name, helping to advertise the ice cream to other people. With companies like Gelato Products, you can even order customized packaging with branding already printed on the container.

Beautiful Eating Utensils
It is also important to provide ice cream spoons for the customers who enjoy eating their frozen dessert from a container rather than an edible cone. Disposable spoons are used in most restaurants, and with a throwaway container, a customer can carry their ice cream away from a restaurant to eat it while sitting on a bench at the park. Plastic spoons are available in clear or white plastic at an inexpensive price, or a restaurant manager may want to create customized spoons that have specialized logos or designs.

Buy Supplies Wholesale
Restaurants managers who serve homemade ice cream to their patrons should always have plenty of ice cream shop supplies available. The best way to ensure that a restaurant has enough napkins, containers and utensils is to buy these items online at wholesale prices. By buying supplies in bulk quantities, a manager will always have enough cups and spoons to serve ice cream to their guests at anytime of the year.

Butter Bread Rolls

Before leaving for my daughter's place. I baked this super soft and fluffy Butter Bread Rolls for my hubby. He loves butter bread rolls and butter cakes...since I do not have the time to bake him a butter cake, these delicious butter rolls will do for the time being :)

I took the recipe from Sonia's blog - Nasilemaklover .  I was not wrong, it really turned out soft and fluffy as I knew it will be.  After years of baking buns and breads, I know that it is a good one after reading through the whole recipe.  Love love the aroma of freshly baked buns,  I took one to try , mmmmm it melts in the buttery in flavor and the cottony feel texture of the roll makes it very addictive.  Hubby had his with his cup of  black coffee and I had mine with ice lemon tea.  Great for kids too, you can fill the buns with red bean paste or sausages.  For hubby and myself, we love it as it is...buttery and soft...nom nom.  Hope you will be like me inspired by Sonia's recipe and try it out :)

I had mine with a glass of lemon juice :)

a dimple stays means the dough ready for shaping

divide dough into 8 equal portions

shape into a triangle and place the butter on the wide side
and roll towards the end and bend both ends like a croissant

place the buns on greased baking pan and leave it to rest for 10 mins

love to see them lined in a row

egg wash them before baking

Cakes – An Essential Part of Every Occasion

Many of you will know that I love baking cakes especially cupcakes and birthday cakes for family members.  My speciality is Durian Layered Cake.  But of late , because of travelling very often to visit my daughter who lives in the city, I have to close my kitchen for the time being.  And I just discovered that I can order cakes from Online Cake Shop.  And many of my readers are asking me why I have not been sharing much on cake recipes and I have to tell them that I have to be away on most weekends.  But I shall be back to baking as soon as my food projects in KL is done :)

I just have to order birthday cakes from them and it will be delivered to my loved ones and friends.  When I looked into their website, I am amazed at the different types of cakes being offered. So now I can surprised my loved ones with personalized cake.  I can even have my loved ones photo printed on cake. All I have to do is send them a high resolution picture of my loved ones along with my order number.  I shall order one for my daughter's 3rd wedding anniversary.

You can check out their website too..they really have a wide range of cakes that you can order online. They even have eggless cakes with different designs and I am sure you will love their cakes for every occasion.  I am pleased that even with my not being able to bake at this time, I am still able to send a cake to my loved ones and friends on every occasion that needs a cake.  So super duper happy to have this online cake shop.
