Hokkien Mee and A Car for my Wife - Pre Birthday Celebration!

My wife likes Hokkien Mee very much, so today I cooked Peteformation Authentic Penang Hokkien Mee for her. Since I used very little water compared with the amount of prawns, the soup turned out very tasty and sweet. My daughter ate 3 bowls and this is the first time I see her eating so much! LOL!
Made this bowl of Hokkien Mee for my neighbour!
Since the kids are busy preparing for their music exam and also school exam; we decided not to eat out today. Then, I thought of baking a cake.......took out the ingredients and started baking! The cake batter
Adding some colours; chocolate and pink
Aiya! I went outside and chit chat with my neighbour, forgot about the cake in the oven, luckily I realised on time but it was already slighty burned!
Now, what to do ahhh? Scraped off the burned part, still doesn't look nice!
Then I sketched out the shape of a car and ‘ta daaaaa’, it turned into a Beemer like the movie Cars! I used strawberries as the wheel! When my little toddler saw the cake he kept on saying, car, car , car; his favourite show! Ha ha ha!
Looks like the happiest person tonight was my little toddler! Peteformation Red and Chocolate Marble Cake Recipe I did not follow any recipe found in the book because I was actually estimating the amount of ingredients to use so that all of it would fit in just nice in to my baking pan. Luckily the cake turned out ok! I used only 1 cup of sugar for 5 cups of flour because my wife likes cakes that are not too sweet. Normally, 2 cups of castor sugar would only be sufficient for 5 cups of flour to make a cake.

Ingredients
Flour, 5 cups
Castor Sugar, 2 cups or less if you don’t want it to be too sweet
Baking powder, 2 teaspoon
Baking soda, ¼ teaspoon
Butter, 250 gms
Vanilla essence, 1 tablespoon
Cocoa powder, 1 table spoon
Red colouring, a few drops
Eggs, 5 pcs

Beat butter and castor sugar mixture until they turned light yellow. When you turn the bowl upside down, the butter and castor sugar mixture should not fall off when they are well mixed. Add vanilla essence and eggs. Mix well. Add baking powder and soda bicarbonate (baking soda) in to the flour. Use a strainer to air the flour. Add the flour into the cake batter. Mix well. Then take out around 5 table spoons of the batter, one into each bowl for the chocolate and red colour. Add in the cocoa powder to the first bowl and red colouring into the next bowl. Pour the rest of the batter into an oiled baking tray. Use a spoon to make a few ‘drains’ on the batter. Then add in the chocolate and red batter into the baking tray. Use a long stick or butter knife to pull some lines on the batter so that there will be lines of different colour in the cake. Bake in preheated oven at 180 Deg C for 35 minutes.
