P.S. By the way, I started blogging when my Mom was pregnant; so I called my blog Fifth out of Ten because I am the fifth out of ten siblings. But I actually only had eight siblings when I started blogging, but now Levi has come to complete us. We're a very happy family!

mini Christmas cakes

Hi all. I made some Christmas trees and presents out of cake!
This is an entry for Heidi-Mari's Fortnightly Baking Fun Challenge. I had so much fun making them! :) Now, to show you how to make them yourself...

To make 10 Christmas trees and 16 presents, you will need:
275g self-raising flour
225g soft margarine (You can use butter)
4 tablespoons milk
1 level teaspoon of baking powder
225g caster sugar
2-3 drops vanilla essence
4 medium eggs

For the butter icing:
100g soft butter or margarine
500ml (250g) icing sugar, sifted
5 ml vanilla essence
about 20 ml milk, if required
food dyes (any colours you want)

1. Heat the oven to 180C, 350F, gas mark 4, before you start.

2. Method for the cake:
Draw around a tin on greaseproof paper. Cut it out. Wipe oil inside the tin. Put the paper into the tin and oil the paper.

3. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl. Add the margarine, milk, baking powder, sugar and vanilla essence.

4. Break the eggs into a small bowl. Beat them with a fork. Add them to the flour mixture. Beat everything together well.

5. Spoon the mixture into the tin. Smooth the top. Bake it in the oven for 40-45 minutes, until the middle is springy.

6. Leave the cake in the tin to cool once cooked. Then lift it out.

7. Cut a strip 7cm (3in) wide from one end of the cake. Cut it into 16 small squares. Cut the cake in half along its length.

8. Cut out ten triangles. Ice them with green icing. Ice the presents with the other icing. Use any type of sweets you want to decorate the presents and trees!

Method for icing:

1. Cream the butter and sifted icing sugar together. Add the remaining ingredients and beaut to a smooth and spreadable consistency. Do not overmix, as it will become runny.

Let the kids help, and enjoy it!

P.S. For the trunks you can use half a bar-one or any other chocolate bar. :)

Yup, you heard the title! Levi Murray Le Feuvre-Smith was born at 5:30 Tuesday December 2011... Thank the Lord. And thank you all who prayed for Levi and my mom. :) They are both at the hospital, well, and, perhaps, tired. Now, I remember promising baby photos, on the post "Only Seventeen Days!", but its going to be a while before I can get some pictures on my blog... Sorry.
But I am so excited and happy to have a new baby brother.
He weighs 2.08, not such a big baby, like all the other babies my mom has had... Lol.
We went to visit Mom and Levi in the hospital, and Levi is so cute!! But what he looks like is a secret until I post some pictures of him.
So, just another short post spreading the good news. :)

Julie Andrews

Today my mom was working on a picture of hers which was inspired by the song of Julie Andrews, "Some of My Favourite Things" (it was a really beautiful picture). When I asked her if I could listen to the whole song, she looked it up on YouTube.

I love that song... It was also played in "The Sound of Music" one of my very favourite movies. Julie Andrews, as well as singing, acts. She was Mary Poppins. :D So, I am a fan of Julie Andrews. Her singing makes me happy and I just want to listen to it all the the time! :) I think she may be my favourite singer... Just listen to the video from YouTube that I have given above and you'll see how good her singing is!
Julie also acted in "The Tooth Fairy" and "Princess diaries". Oh, I also think that she's one of the best of actresses! Here's two links that will take you to different places giving information about her: Julie Andrews' Bio 1. Julie Andrews' Bio 2. Julie Andrews is also very pretty, plus, apart from acting and singing, she worked a little on books. That's right, she was an author too. Go here to a website that will tell you even more about her writing. She was married to Blake Edwards but he sadly died at the age of 88. So, what do you think about Julie Andrews? Tell me in your comments!

only seventeen days!

Hi all, I hope that your Sunday has been great...here's my piece of news...Seventeen days to go till I get another brother, Levi. Murray Le Feuvre-Smith... Ah... Can't WAIT! Mom is feeling very weak these days... Of course that's natural, since she's 35 weeks pregnant!
Levi will probably come home on Christmas Eve. What a nice present...
Mom is very happy to be carrying a precious little life around again. I hope that when the time comes for Levi to enter the world she will be well, and that nothing will go wrong...
Anyway, this is just a short post warning you to be aware that baby pictures are coming up!

white chocolate mousse with fresh fruit

Hi everyone. Yesterday I made a pudding, as the title says; White Chocolate Mousse With Fresh Fruit. And I'm going to enter this in Heidi-Mari's Baking Fun Challenge! Yay! So... Here's the recipe.
A delicious and easy plus quick recipe that I promise you will enjoy unless you don't like chocolate, fruit or cream. ;)

Serves: 2

What You Will Need:

100g Strawberries
72g Blueberries
50g Raspberries
100g White Chocolate
Cup and three quarters fresh whipping cream (must be cold)
1 Chocolate cereal bar


1 Break the chocolate into pieces and put in a heat-proof bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of cream (put the rest of the cream aside) melt the chocolate and cream in the microwave until melted (try not to burn it).

2 Set the melted chocolate aside to cool. Take the remaining cream, and beat it until fluffy. Once you are done beating the cream, take the melted chocolate and the whipped cream, and fold the chocolate into the cream.
Set aside.

3 Cut the strawberries into half each. Put a layer of cream and chocolate at the bottom of two different glasses. Then, put some blueberries, strawberries and raspberries on top. Now, another layer of chocolate and cream. Proceed the layering until you reach just underneath the rim of the glass. Then, decorate the top with a few blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Crumble half the chocolate cereal bar and split between the two glasses of pudding. Sprinkle the cereal  bar crumbs evenly on each to top it off.

4 Put in the refrigerator for about an hour then serve. Now you have your White Chocolate Mousse with fresh fruit!! Well done and enjoy it. (double or triple or even quadruple if there is not enough!)
