I was tagged and invited by Lena of Frozen Wings to play a game called the 7 Links Challenge. The challenge is to publish a list of 7 links to previous posts that I have written that respond to the following 7 categories:
1) The most beautiful post
2) The most popular post
3) The most controversial post
4) The most helpful post
5) A post that was surprisingly successful
6) A post that did not get the attention it deserves
7) A post I am most proud of
Thank you Lena for the invitation. It was fun looking back at my old posts and see how far I've progressed thus far from my baking/cooking to my photo taking skills - man, I want a dslr camera!
Now, I'd like to extend this challenge to all bloggers who are interested to play this game. Are you up for it?
Here are my 7 links.
1) The most beautiful post - Swiss Carrot Cake
The pink color scheme, the little sugar flowers, the simply iced cake. I just love the sight. So pretty.
2) The most popular post - The almost perfect sponge cake
Based on pageviews, this post has received the most views to date.
3) The most controversial post - NIL
None so far. Anyone wanna debate with me? LOL
4) The most helpful post - Cocodrillo Ciabatta
The embedded video was very helpful to me when I made the ciabatta. From the video, I got to see how the consistency of the very wet bread dough should look like and learned how to handle the dough. Hence, I think it would be useful to others who is interested to try the recipe.
5) A post that was surprisingly successful - Swiss Roll with Stawberry Jam
Now, this is successful because when I posted this entry I didn't expect this plain swiss roll would garner any attention at all let alone praises. It was a surprise indeed. A very pleasant one :).
6) A post that did not get the attention it deserves - Nigella's Molten Chocolate Baybycakes
This didn't get as many attention as I thought it would. Just look at that silky dark molten chocolate! I expected oohs and aahhs, lip smacking sounds and drools dribbling.
7) A post I am most proud of - Mango Mousse Cake
This is the first mousse cake I've ever made and it has made me a convert. In the past, I was not a fan of mousse cakes. I thought they had a weird texture, tasted waxy and just plain awful. I didn't realize then those mousse cakes from bakeries used non-dairy cream until I made this cake (I used full fat dairy whipping cream). It was so delicious. What a revelation! Since then I've experimented and made many mousse cakes (which I've yet to post in my blog).
