When the rabbit start baking, it was a therapy to help her pass time and relaxes whenever she got the insomnia. However along the time, her passion and love towards baking grow bigger and deeper because on top of the challenge to bake some good and delightful to loved one and friends, she also find the artist in her through baking, especially in her Japanese decorative roll cake.Her greatest pleasure is when she was able to accomplished the custom request design for friends or clients or whenever happy clients feedback on how much the recipient’s of the cake (mostly birthday boy/girl) enjoy their favorite image/character as well as eating the cake.
And it was a big surprise for her when she received an interview request about her decorative roll cake from NET TV , a local TV station here in Indonesia. At first she was hesitate of the fear being in-adequate since she start this as a hobby and it is still a small online business operating from her small kitchen. But then the nice lady reporter Ms. B convinced her that it was okay and they are really interested to get to know more about Rabbit’s decorative roll cake because it is something new, unique and interesting.
To cut it short, she said yes and below were some photo shoot of the session and the show was aired yesterday at the 12 o’clock noon at a program called NET12 (will provide the link once they upload it on the station website new’s episode).
Yay… for those who are curious, yes the rabbit is the one in blue in the photos above 😉
Mrs. HH shared double good news last week and those news surely called for celebration. And rabbit’s usual way to celebrate is to bake and send pretty and delicious cake.
Since Mrs. HH prefer something fresh with less sweet and fat, the rabbit decided to bake for her some mango mouse cake and this time they come in individual portion. She also put an effort to decorate them by copying Marta Stewart’s mango rosette style.
Don’t you think these pretty mango rosette mouse cakes was just perfect? The rabbit is patting her own back, yay….. y(^-^)y ….great success for first timer.
In addition to mango mouse cake, the rabbit also bake for Mrs. HH , her rather popular Japanese cheesecake. She loves how the perfect round cheesecake with the ribbon resemble a pretty hat like look.
Congrats Mrs. HH….
Wish you all the best.

Fae from Fae’s Twist and Tango was the first one whom throw the rabbit the idea to try baking the famous macaron. So after months of procrastination she decided to go for it and to ensure good start she choose to go for the easiest and simplest French meringue method.
Rabbit’s first attempt was a disaster, she undermixed the batter with the fear of ruining the meringue and resulted to the macaron’s top did not flatten out even after the tapped the baking tray strongly.
However she still insist to bake them to see result and was happy to see the macarons start to develop feet. Then she start to fear another most common failure in macaron which is cracking the macaron shells . So she lower down the baking temperature after 10 minutes of baking and remove the macaron from the oven too soon. She forgot that peanut macaron tend to have a darker color when cooked compare to almond macaron. Below was the photo of the underbaked macaron
At a glance the macarons looks ok but then they stick on the silicone mat and when the rabbit try to remove them. And that concluded the failure and the rabbit admit defeat and throw away the whole batch and decided to try again.
One very important point to note “Choose a sifter whose mesh is not too fine, the rabbit spent 30 minutes sifting the first batch because she used a too fine sifter” 😦
After getting rid of the evidence of the earlier failure, the rabbit start to whisk another batch and this time she put note on what went wrong and…
Below was the result of pretty brownish peanut macaron.
- 45 gr egg whites
- 15 gr sugar
- 75 gr peanut powder
- 75 gr icing sugar
- Mix peanut powder with icing sugar and sift twice
- Whip egg whites until bubbly and add sugar and beat until firm
- Mix peanut powder and icing sugar to meringue
- Pipe on the lined tray using round nozzle and once finish piping all batter, hit the baking tray on kitchen counter, rotate the tray 90 degree and hit the tray on counter again, repeat again to ensure each 4 sides of tray were covered in this step.
- Let the macarons sit for awhile ( some recipe said that it is okay to immediately bake the macaron but rabbit let her’s sit in air condition room for about 30 mins or until the skin is dry and not stick to finger when touched)
- Bake for 25 minutes at 160C or until cooked
- Let the macarons cool completely before filling them
Rabbit’s macarons filling was : cream cheese mixed with chocolate ganache.

For Winnie the Pooh fans
Tape/Tapai is the Indonesia name for fermented Cassava and it is a rather popular local snack in Indonesia. And is very cheap, street / wet market seller price is about IDR 7,000/ kg (about 70 cents USD/kg).
This is how the tape/tapai looks like
There are many way to serve Tape/Tapai , one an eat it as what it is to enjoy the sweetness and the alcoholic fragrance of the ripe fermeneted tape/tapai, or mix it in ice dessert like ice kacang/ice campur or grill it and put cheese and chocolate and condensed milk topping or coated it with flour and deep fried it and lastly to mix it into cake batter to make the classic bolu tape.
I use the recipe from mum’s collection to make today bolu tape and modified it a little by adding some chocolate chips in it.
- 15 yolks + 2 egg whites (or 2 eggs + 13 yolks)
- 90 gr cake flour
- 140 gr butter (melted)
- 135 gr sugar
- 350 gr tape/tapai (fermented cassava)
- Some chocolate chips (optional)
- In medium to high speed, whip eggs (yolks & whites) with sugar until pale and thick (ribbon stage).
- Reduce the speed and add in the fermented tape/tapi and mix well .
- Sieve in flour and mix well and lastly stir in the melted butter and mix well.
- You can pour the mixture into any shape of baking tray (square or round) or in my case I prefer to use cupcake case for individual portion.
- Sprinkle the top with chocolate chips and bake at 190C for 30 mins or until cooked/golden brown.
This is the result of my bolu tape, I made 2 version , plain and chocolate chips version. Adding grated cheese is a good option too for this cake, maybe next time I will bake the cheese version.
