It has been a very long time since I last made salted caramel tarts, and after taking a bite, I cannot remember why - they are so delicious! Inspired by Majavase, I attempted a somewhat similar decoration using chocolate discs with spires to top the tartlets. Thanks to chef Otto and the instructional video from... Continue Reading →

The first time I heard about this super rich Italian dessert was a few years ago when I was discussing baking with an Italian colleague from Sicily. As a chocolate lover, I was very intrigued. But, there aren't too many recipes online and I certainly couldn't find any in my stash of recipe books. So,... Continue Reading →

'Tis the season for chocolate and pecan. I have been wanting to bake something with pecans for the longest time. So when I saw David Lebovitz's chocolate pecan pie recipe, I knew this is what I have been waiting to try. As usual, I would like to dress up the tart with at least 3... Continue Reading →

Back in the kitchen and all caught up with the latest episodes of gbbo which I missed for the last 2 weeks. Despite the horrible jet lag, where I had to keep myself up the whole of yesterday (touched down in Singapore at 5:30 am) and ended up sleeping a whooping 14 hours straight, waking...

When I started planning this entremet, I was just looking for something I could do with my newly acquired "fashion eclair" mold. Preferably something yellow so I can make use of the yellow glaze in my freezer. I came across this cheesecake... Continue Reading →

It's been a while since I made anything from my pastry idol's recipe book, so, for this special bake on my special day, I decided to go back to the root of my pastry love. Since I only have a day (I took a day off work), I can't do anything too complicated. So I... Continue Reading →

This is another one of those bakes which is proof that practice makes perfect. I first made this over 4 years ago, just shortly after I started baking. I shall not elaborate on that as a picture speaks a thousand words. Fast forward 4 years, after countless entremet, mousse, oven burns and random kitchen accidents... Continue Reading →
