Hazelnut Opera Cake


After months of school in Taiwan, I’ve realised that there’s something scarily wrong in society. It may be the influence of the media, according to my analysis, that’s making girls feel that they have to conform to the media’s definition of what is “beauty” in order to fit into society. My skinny underweight friends in … Continue reading

Guilt Free Decadent Malted Marbled Banana Bread


Good ol’ banana bread. With swirls of malt. And studded with chocolate chips. Topped with crumble. A banana bread really can’t get better than this. That its low fat is just a bonus. 

Cocoa Milo Truffles (Reduced Fat and Sugar)


I had never thought I would make truffles. Truffles are the creamier sister of chocolate that’s, more fattening, artery-clogging, round, eaten on its own, too insignificant to be filling and too high in calories to remove the damage it brings to one’s conscience (darn, I could have eaten 20 biscuits and swallowed the same amount … Continue reading

Fudgy Chocolate Cake with Nutella Frosting and Cheescake Filling


Sometimes, I’m scared. When cockroaches fly-pounce onto my shirt (avoid bright colours near cockroaches). When my health is out of my control because  even a change in diet or taking medicine doesn’t work. When a “complex numbers” question appears on my examination paper. When I dislocate my right wrist but can’t feel any pain. When … Continue reading

Like a Sachertorte


I made this cake with a lady friend of mine with an intense love for anything dangerously rich and calorie-laden, and who despite this, owns a slim physique. The world is unfair, I know– that is until I get well again. I will live for that day… if I do manage to get through the … Continue reading

Strawberry Caramel Layer Cake (Vegan, Whole Wheat)


Yeah, its me. Back after twisting another foot, surviving a fever that’s (thank God) not due to dengue, and bearing with the aftermath of the fever– the worst kind of cough that causes even air to tickle the throat. Yikes. Now I have Show Luo’s eye bags, my bro’s practically permanent panda eyes and a … Continue reading

Sesame Chocolate Entremet


. . I’ve been sick the past few days, since I went off medication. My cousin’s passing still feels like a blur– like its half real and half a nightmare.  So much like a dream that most of the time I still believe he’s alive and not suddenly without heartbeat. The last time something like … Continue reading
