I really wanted to squeeze in one last bake before my Christmas holidays, and I don't know why I chose this particular "short weekend" to experiment with different ways to bake my tart shells. For those who has been curious about blind-baking your tart shells using cling wrap, I am here to tell you -... Continue Reading →

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 →

While I don't think there was anything wrong with last week's chocolate tarts, somehow, it just didn't hit the spot. So I decided to give it another try, this time with my square tart rings (aren't rings round??). And I have to say, I do like this rendition a lot more. Firstly, I absolutely loved...

Also, I didn't think a cake covered in whipped cream would... Continue Reading →

This must be one of my worst baking weekend ever. I wanted to make some whipped ganache to top this tart, but, boy, I made two batches and somehow managed to screw up both of them. Both times I made a "liquid" ganache, with a 2:1 heavy cream to chocolate ratio, chill it, then whip... Continue Reading →

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. I have been craving something chocolatey. Not just chocolate, but layers of chocolate, and nuts, and caramel. I... Continue Reading →

These tart shells have been sitting in my freezer forever! In fact, they have been sitting there for so long I decided to bake them again before filling them. The reason these tart shells have been sitting for so long is also because I was not sure what to fill them with - because I... Continue Reading →
