Matcha Opera Cake

Making entremets is addictive. They are easy, satisfying but tedious unless you spread the process across multiple days which you should. Are these technically opera cakes? By the strictest of definitions I guess not. Blame my love for Praliné feuilletine. I’ve never met a person who doesn’t love it. Making two layers of this makesContinue reading “Matcha Opera Cake”

Decadent Milo Layer Cake

This cake is moist, crumbly and decadent. Its milo flavoured, which really means malted chocolate flavoured. For the text version of the recipe, click here.

Pierre Herme’s Cheesecake, Blueberryfied

In the past year, I decided to challenge myself in baking. Put aside all fear of failure. Step out of the basics. Venture into the world of gourmet desserts. Because that’s what “growing” and “learning” is supposed to be. Doing what you’ve never done before.

Hazelnut Opera Cake

After months of school in Taiwan, I’ve realised that there’s something scarily wrong in society.

My skinny underweight friends inContinue reading “Hazelnut Opera Cake”

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.

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. WhenContinue reading “Fudgy Chocolate Cake with Nutella Frosting and Cheescake Filling”

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 theContinue reading “Like a Sachertorte”
