Baking : Another Excitement

Hey, there's another thing I'd love to learn recently, it's baking! Reason(s)? One, I actually planned to attend fashion design class at Susan Budhiharjo next January. But it's so impossible since I'm carrying this baby and will be delivering in April. Still unreasonable? Read next. Two, since my due date is in April and my project will be ended in the end of January, I decided to stay home after this project and do something else fun. It's too short to take any other projects, unless they wanna hire me for just two months period ;). Three, I've been wanted to learn baking since long time ago, but I don't have much time to spare plus no equipment at all!
Well, enough reasons then to start this new excitement.
So, I started googling and reading tons of review, visited some stores...And I finally opted and bought some equipments needed. Of course there are other stuffs I bought but I didn't manage to display them all. Tooooo

Oxone OX-898BR 4in1 Jumbo electric oven, Tanita KD160-WH digital scale, Philips mixer.

Why I opted Oxone Ox-898BR : don't have any idea for this equipment but it has good review from users, can bake and grill ( other oven can't do so), adequate capacity 28L for home baking, can't find any other option after searching at some stores ^^'. Last, they have online store Yes it matters to me.
Why I opted Tanita KD160-WH digital scale : don't have any idea for this equipment but some reviews said that Tanita is the best digital scale. I was asking some store and they told me the same. This type has enough weight capacity (2 kg) with 1 gr weight graduation. Oh and I love its attractive shape. Online store
Why I opted Philips mixer : I'm a Philips oriented for home kitchen appliances. It's time proven for durability and quality so why choose others? Don't asked me again why I opted Oxone electric oven ;)

After all those stuffs ready at home in Thursday, I couldn't even wait until weekend to do an experiment. I made a cake right away -it's a basic rum raisin cake- in Friday morning. It was my first time baking and was a total success for me! Woohoo...Too bad I didn't manage to take picture of it as it washed-up sooo fast! Lol.
So I made another basic cake last Saturday, a butter cheesecake. But it's a no for me. The taste is good, but not the texture :( I prefer the rum raisin cake.

Happy Monday everyone :)
