Baking for Charity

Last year, my colleague, Huiqin and I participated in our company's Charity Breakfast and this year there we go ahead again! This year, our department changed it to a lunch event. Well, be it breakfast or lunch, our only specialty was bake goods! lol.... Afterall, its a charity event and most importantly its to raise money for charity. We were also expecting our collegues to give us our support. The good thing was we also got to claim time-off because it was a lunch event and we needed time to prepare in the morning. :P

This year, we made cookies, swissrolls, egg tarts and cupcakes. I was too exhausted that I have forgotten to take pictures of the cupcakes I made. The above were double chocolate cookies.

Huiqin baked some egg tarts unfortunately it wasn't a success as she had forgotten she should not poke holes for making egg tarts because fillings had to be poured into the tart shells and by doing so, the tarts got badly burnt. She improvised by making some chocolate tarts instead.
We had lots of fun making and rolling swissrolls at my house. We also took videos how to roll swissrolls but some speech had to be "sensored" so I can't post it here :P

We managed to sell all our goodies! Woo hoo! (In the photo: Me, May Ling, Huiqin).
