It’s not yet officially summer but it sure feels like it already – and I’m utterly living for it.

Oddly, I felt like typing up a rather lengthy side story a few hours ago but now I would rather just talk about this cake, which would take just a moment really because there are not many words needed.
So as you can tell from the very innovative title, today’s post is going to be all about waxing lyrical about the beauty of edible flowers and how they elevate a rather plain appearance to something that looks a thousand times more gorgeous.
Looking back, I’ve always favoured a minimalist approach to pictures, both mine and others’. Usually that entails having an unadorned white background and containing very few elements aside from the ones in focus. I guess it’s because these pictures stand out in a society so cluttered with information that it would reach its breaking point […]
There are some things that are just unwaveringly delicious – the combination of coffee and caramel, caramel and banana… this banana bread recipe specifically.
Lately I’ve been thinking, reflecting, assessing in overdrive. I feel like I rotated an imaginary hourglass more times than I should – I gave myself too much time to accomplish too little. And yet when I look back on my writing, on my pictures, on memories of past actions till this very moment, I cringe […]
In the logical mind of a baker, when one is gifted cute cookies, one does not simply eat them – there is an unspoken sense of duty to maximise their existence by using them as finishing touches to cupcakes only so worthy.
Every once in a while I would step into my living room in mid-afternoon when the sun is customarily at its warmest and brightest only to find it tinged in muted grey, as though the heavy clouds outside that were about to give way to a million rain droplets floated their way indoors. Last Saturday […]
Nope not out of flowers yet. Not even close.
There is something about the pattern of repetition that attracts the human eye. I present my case.
Two words – spring break!
After a bit more than two decades of existing on planet Earth, making a list of things to accomplish during the next 364 days on the first of January every year has long passed the stage of being tired to being a source of casual amusement and now, non-existence. Not so much because rules are […]
A belated Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! Just casually sharing this year’s Christmas dessert on the 28th of December – a fruit tart imitating a wreath, an idea I found on Instagram a while back – because as I like to believe, Christmas isn’t just a day, it’s a frame of mind. Tragically, the […]
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 […]
