Had 2 birthdays in the office. Volunteered to get the cakes so that I can try out FBB's cakes. First was the Banana Walnut. My Boss is a health nut. Plus, the cake had to travel a daunting 300km to Terengganu because they will celebrate it there. After lunch, back at the office, I brought out the cake.
The Banana Walnut cake was still in pristine condition, it survived the journey unbattered and unbruised. Impressive! Cut it, smelled it and savoured it. Marvelous texture. Not the least bit bogged down in oil. Bananas not overpowering. Just nice mixture of walnuts and raisins. Perfection. Best Banana Cake I have ever tasted.
The cake was duly gobbled up by the entire office in 5 minutes.
2nd party for another collaegue of mine. Planned to be a lunch thingy, but there was some emergency at work and got postponed to a late tea time affair.
Durian Poppy Seed Cake.
Fragrant. Not overtly oily. Good texture, some hints of bitterness at the edges, slight bogging at the base, but still lovely. It came with some durian + dairy cream thingy to be smeared on top, but I was too eager to munch down the cake and forgot to take a picture.
Good thing it was a Friday. Because the whole office smelled of durians!! As per the banana cake, it got gobbled down in 5 minutes and I caught somebody licking off the cream from the container it came in!
Kudos to FBB, you really deserve your adulations and I am one of your fans now.
