With the lack of posting, it seems as though I’d not done any thing for Chinese New Year.
The truth it, the hubs has been away almost whole of January, and I did most of my baking very much later.
It’s been a busy month, to get used to new school routine; to manage without the hubs [...]

A couple of weeks back, my SIL gave me a challenge. She ordered a cake I’d never made before for her to bring to the office. I saw it as a challenge, because if I’d not made it before, I don’t know how it tastes, and if it’ll be nice enough to be served?

I gave [...]

Instead of using Savoiardi Italian Ladyfingers, which is rather expensive, for the Green Tea Tiramisu, I made the lady fingers or biscuit sponge myself.

It’s actually quite easy to make, but of course, being my first attempt, I didn’t know quite how to space or pipe it, they didn’t turn out to be perfectly shaped. Nonetheless, [...]

Last week I celebrated my birthday.

My hubs is the kind who cannot seem to be able to remember my birthday or aniversary dates unless I remind him or the children remind him, he has been getting the dates wrong like forever. He’s also not the sort who’s bothered to spend effort to do something [...]

My sister in law went to Shanghai recently to visit the Shanghai Expo, it was a trip organised by MCA. Besides visiting the Shanghai Expo, some sightseeing and shopping are also squeezed in .

I didn’t know she was going, or I would have some asked her to pick up some books and DVDs for me. [...]

Ju who reads my blog, asked me sometime in January if I could make her some cupcakes and she’ll pay me for them.
That was my very first cake order with payment.
She was in fact my only paying customer. Haha. She subsequently ordered two more times from me, and the last order was just last Friday.
She [...]

Chiffon cake can be bought for RM4 per whole cake in the night market in KL. Therefore, I’d never thought of making one since they are so cheap and widely available. That is until I saw the recipe for Green Tea Chiffon Cake in Okashi Sweet Treats Made With Love by Keiko Ishida.

Kids love [...]

My dad, had a liver tumor and his gall bladder removed this March, hence he has to be on low fat diet.
He celebrated his 75th birthday last weekend. His favourite cake, as well as the family’s, is the sugee cake, which is extremely rich, and I have to resist myself from baking this for [...]

Hubs’ birthday was on Monday. Since we were out the whole day (and night) on Sunday, I had to wake up slightly earlier on Monday to bake him his birthday cake.
He loves coconut, so I thought I should try to make him a cake with coconut milk; and found this Southen (Manhattan) Coconut Cake recipe [...]

I’d tried Hazelnut Torte in The Appartment the Curve, and absolutely loved it. I was so happy to come across the recipe in one of my Jamie Oliver cookbook and thought I’ll try it for Christmas eve, a cake that we will use to celebrate my brother’s and my youngest daughter’s birthday.
Since I was baking, [...]
