The block of cream cheese in my fridge is expiring soon. I bought it to make the Strawberry Jelly Hearts but somehow I just don't have the mood to make it this weekend. Craving for some cakes, I began to go through my to-do list and look for cakes that uses cream cheese. I stumbled upon the Cream Cheese Pound Cake on Little Teochew's Blog. It looks so appetizing. I decided to bake this. However, it uses only 140 g of cream cheese. What am I going to do with the rest? I searched in her blog and saw the Black Bottom Cupcakes. I halved the recipe to use up the
remaining 110 g of my cream cheese. Hee hee. I managed to bake both cakes before lunch.
At about tea time, my parents came over to get my bakes and bought me 4 egg tarts from Tong Heng (my fav). So sweet of them.
I guess I am an inconfident baker. I only have the courage to offer my bakes to my parents, my brother and my husband. It is not that I cannot accept criticism, in fact I want them to comments on my bakes so that I can improve in those areas but normally they don't. Only my parents, brother and husband do. I am worried that if I gave the
m and they don't enjoy it, it will be a torture to them and I will be very upset to know that. I really enjoy cooking and baking for others and see them enjoying or giving me feedback on my food. That's the way to learn.

A peek at the texture
This cake smells and tastes fantastic. Soft and moist. This recipe is very forgiving and suitable for novice baker like me.
Black Bottom Cupcakes
I prefer to have more cheesy taste to it. Nonetheless, the texture is great and not too sweet.
