I have been fascinated with Yann Brys’ "tourbillon" technique for the longest time, and have been toying with the idea of buying a turntable, just to try piping this myself. But, that seemed a little extreme. Finally I got a toy pottery turntable off Amazon. 🙄 And I think it sort of does the trick.... Continue Reading →

Was thumbing through Johan Martin's Signature and this recipe caught my eyes. Specifically, the Baileys cream component caught my eyes. I was initially perplexed by the cinnamon based biscuit and thought I would go for something "safe". Like a chocolate or hazelnut biscuit. But my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to...

Christmas is in the air! Time to bust out those dusty molds and bake up something special. And I really want to bake up something particularly special to christen this new set of mold. Ever since I read about DA's December cronut - white chocolate peppermint and cherry, I couldn't quite get it out of... Continue Reading →

There are so many coffee tart recipes out there, but, I wanted something different. Plain chocolate tart flavoured with coffee is just, too plain. And plain coffee tarts are, well, too much...

I felt strangely uninspired to bake recently. I mean, it's okay once I get into it. But I just find it so hard to peel myself off my behind and work in the kitchen. Probably the hot weather is partially to blame. But, like it or not, a good friend's birthday was coming up, and... Continue Reading →

I have been wanting to try out this recipe for the longest time, and was glad to finally get to it. It was a lot simpler than I thought it would be. Unfortunately, my 3.5" cake rings were a little bigger than the ones used in the original recipe, so I ended up with only... Continue Reading →
