We had started by making Cat's Tongue (Lidah Kucing), which is a favorite among everyone who knows my mom (she knows a lot of people). I didn't take any pictures of the Cat's Tongue but I promise I'll post an entry soon. Then we moved on to making Tiramisu. My mom had always wanted to make a Tiramisu but she still hasn't found a good recipe yet. So I shared with her my Tiramisu recipe (tailored to use less alcohol).
I really enjoyed spending time with my mom in the kitchen. I don't quite know how to explain the feeling, but it gives me a sense of bliss and joy. I was very happy to have the chance to spend time with my mom doing things we both enjoy: baking.
The comment that I got from my mom: "I can't believe my daughter can make cakes now!" My dad said that the cake was okay but it's a little on the sweet side for him. :) My dad also likes dark chocolate with 70-80% cocoa content. I think going forward, I'll make the Tiramisu less sweet and use stronger coffee for better flavor.
