I am not really one to obsessed about getting the perfectly shaped cake, as I normally prefer my cakes smothered in frosting. Even then, it was strangely satisfying to finally achieve that, even if you cannot tell from this picture. The cake is split in half and filled with a layer of leftover lemon cream...

It is strawberry season in Europe. While there, I saw more strawberries than I can ever imagine. Sometimes, there are even random stalls setup in street corners, selling only strawberries. It's a pity I couldn't bring them back. So when I saw some nice strawberries at the local grocers, I just had to buy some... Continue Reading →

But we've known each other for ages and, chocolate aside, she's been a good friend to me. We were planning a Lunar New Year gathering and as we discussed dessert, I told this friend that...

The irony of it was, I decided to bake this cake the morning after a crazy Friday night out drinking! I don’t normally share anecdotes as this is... Continue Reading →

I promised a good friend, the next time we met, I would let him try some of my homemade macarons. And I thought, I would choose 2 of my favourite flavours for the occasion - the lemon and plaisir sucré macarons. I believe I have finally found a way to ensure the macaron shells are...
