Sometimes one just want some "comfort" dessert. And what could be more of a "comfort" than peanut butter and jelly. I have been wanting to glaze a savarin shaped entremet for the longest time and I was quite pleased at how my first attempt turned out. However, I learnt that this required quite a good...

I have been fascinated by these "chocolate fingers" I have been seeing on my Instagram feed for the longest time. But somehow it just did not seem to make it into my baking list. Until this weekend.

My work lunch buddy is a quiet, petite lady and I figure a sweet floral design should suit her. This is the first time I piped blossoms. The first few were a little... Continue Reading →

Sunday is my "hermit" day. And I usually like to spend it vegetating at home. But a good friend just got out from surgery recently and what are friends for if they can't sacrifice one Sunday to visit their friend. I knew Fui from way back during our university days in the UK. The circumstance... Continue Reading →
