Dessert blogging requires at minimum a set of three skills – photography, writing and of course, baking. I tend to prefer a certain aspect over the others at a given point, which rotates as the days go by. However, there have been stretches of time of late where none of these activities can hold my […]
listening to lofi // baileys caramel cheesecake
Music at midnight, being bundled up in an oversized blanket, a slice of sweetness, the motion of a fork gliding through, the sugary warmth of spiced caramel – a perfect moment in time.
all is bright and all is gold // strawberry white chocolate passionfruit mousse cakes
There comes a string of seconds during the day when the still transparent air transforms into a fog of shimmering gold. The moments are fleeting, evanescent. If only you could twirl in circles on tiptoes with an opened glass jar held in a hand outstretched, fill it to the brim with the twinkling light and […]
favorites // caramel mousse banana cake with salted caramel espresso sauce
There are some things that are just unwaveringly delicious – the combination of coffee and caramel, caramel and banana… this banana bread recipe specifically.
we live and we learn // mocha cream cheese ombré cake
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.

Last Saturday […]
sugar, spice and everything nice // apple vanilla bean cheesecake
Nope not out of flowers yet. Not even close.
first figs // fig and pear charlotte
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 […]
summer awaits // coconut kiwi swiss roll
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.
twenty one // baileys mocha cake with white chocolate cream cheese frosting and chocolate baileys glaze
So over two weeks ago marked the first day of the 21st year I have been inhaling oxygen on planet Earth. Brilliant.
new beginnings // marble chocolate strawberry cake
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 […]
