These wintry days, at 3pm my living room is already awash with orange-y gold rays that are occasionally mixed with a tinge of pink, if I’m lucky. It’s a gorgeous sight, but now I have a precious few hours to work with before the sun retires for the day during which the lighting seems to […]

It’s finally a week till Christmas! The holiday of presents wrapped with sheer sparkly ribbons, when strings of lights illuminate the streets in festive hues wherever you go, of familiar tunes sung by the most angelic voices, trees with their forest green branches decked out in glittery elaborate baubles of red, gold, and silver, and […]
I quickly scrolled though my recent blog posts lately and I realised to myself that it must seem like I am oddly constantly busy, although I assure you that that is not exactly the case, since I had a two-month summer break over August and September yet I didn’t bake at all. It keeps happening […]
So we said goodbye to summer a while back, and fall is fast fading away. In fact as I type, it’s a cool six degrees outside. Granted it’s also 11:37 PM. But it would be hard to deny that the winter cold is quickly creeping up on us and so I decided that I could […]
Here is my attempt to bring back the lava cake trend. I kid. Or at least in part.
I wish I could offer more in the way of prose but it’s exam season and the clock is ticking so I hope that the pictures are sufficiently descriptive. In essence, five years ago on my previous blog I made a strawberry white chocolate layer cake that was extremely well received for reasons I still […]
These seasonal references just won’t stop but I guess it’s hard to when your baking choices draw so much inspiration from what’s currently available in the supermarkets. Summer flavours don’t necessarily stop at citrus – there are so many other fruits without that telltale tartness that are also strong summer contenders – but if there […]
Not that I mean to start off the post negatively, but making crepe cakes are more suited to be a wintertime activity – if you get my drift – which makes the flavour profile of this cake very befitting if I do say so myself.
A quick post – regrettably – for a busy week. But next week there’ll be time to breathe, so there will be cake. And lots of it.
I got a new macro lens! Innovative title I know but that’s sort of the secondary focus of this post (after the dessert itself) because all these pictures are taken with the new lens. It’s strangely challenging to adjust to – the angle at which I have to shoot from is so different from when […]
It wasn’t my intention to proceed into the realm of summer themed bakes just yet seeing that we still have two weeks of spring left, but kiwis are in season after all, and surely coconut and then rum follows after.
Contrary to what the title might suggest, there is no deep philosophical meaning behind my attempt to locate a pleasant source of light for photography, although I could certainly contrive one, but perhaps on another day apart from this Friday night on which my frazzled brain is proving more unreliable by the second.
So over two weeks ago marked the first day of the 21st year I have been inhaling oxygen on planet Earth. Brilliant.
I never knew that exploring the fruit section of a supermarket could be such fun until I came to Tokyo, and so full of surprises too. Sometimes you’ll find row upon row of apples sectioned by variety, which amounts to no less than five, and sometimes you’ll find these – baby strawberries of a vibrant […]
In a time of a conspicuous shift towards social media as a preferred outlet for the disseminating and digesting of information, I deliberated for weeks on end on the plausible returns of starting a new blog. But here I am, with this site, so I guess the verdict is that it is a non-issue. Blogging has always been something […]
