About

Baking is a hobby I have been wanting to pick up for years, but had somehow always found reasons to procrastinate. Until one fateful evening, when I was out celebrating my birthday with a few friends, and one friend showed me a picture of a beautiful rainbow cake covered in torched meringue, baked by his very talented (then) 12-year-old nephew! That very night, I came home and bought the oven I had been eyeing for years.

That was in September 2013, and it was one of the best investment I have made!

My earliest and fondest memories of baking was when I was little and I got to spend a lot of time with my grandmother who was an incredibly talented and passionate home baker. I remember the aromas that filled the whole house every time she baked her delicious marbled butter cake or scrumptious sausage rolls. I loved to “help out” whenever she baked, in exchange for a chance to lick the sugary batter or get first dibs on whatever came out of the oven.

Growing up, I was never much of a “kitchen” person. In fact, before going away to college, my mother had to give me a crash course in frying eggs! Even now, when I meet my friends from way back, they find it amusing that my kitchen is now the favourite space in my apartment.

Perfectionist by nature with a sweet tooth nurtured through the years, my quest for the perfect bakes have grown into a passion I never thought I would experience. And what they say about bakers is true – we love to share the good things! Not just the end results, but also the tips and experience we picked up along the way. So, here I am. I am happy to answer any questions you may have on my posts and I sincerely hope I can help you find your baking inspiration too.

    We are a team of Mass Communication students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic that are researching on the growing trend of desserts and we would like to explore possible recipes which you can share and demonstrate to us.

    We would like to do so to better understand this issue from a professional perspective in our research, as well as seek professional advice for our target audience. As such, we would like to request for an interview with you for this project. We greatly appreciate your help to do so.

    We would like to include your expert sharing in our research which will be in the form of an feature article. We seek your permission to interview you and document it on our magazine project.

    We would like to come down to your cafe/studio any day from 31 May 2016 to 4th June 2016. If you’re unable to attend our interview during that period of time, we will be more than willing to accommodate to your schedule, depending on which date is more convenient for you. Should you need any assistance to prepare for the interview, such as a preview of the interview questions, we will be glad to provide them to you.

    We sincerely hope that you would be open to this and would love to know your response to our interview as soon as possible. We are really sorry for any inconvenience caused!
