Brownie Mosaic Japanese Cheesecake

A pat on the back for myself please – this is the very first time I am actually posting something that I have baked on the very same day!! All my previous posts usually feature cakes baked a day ago, a month ago, even two years ago. What spurred me into action? Well, if you haven’t yet heard, SCS Dairy is holding their “Star Baker Challenge” and needless to say, I

Carrot Cake Loaves

If you’re a follower of mine on Instagram, you would have probably know that I have been baking cake loaves for charity the past month, and will be for the month of October as well. I have been selling a total of 6 flavours (with options to customize) – namely, plain butter loaf, double chocolate loaf, lemon loaf, banana loaf, carrot loaf and an almond butter loaf. I had expected the

Triple Chocolate Birthday Cake (Sour Cream Chocolate Cake with White, Milk and Dark Chocolate Pudding and Dark Chocolate Buttercream)

My my, I have been living a jet-setting life this August. I jetted off (on a Scoot budget flight) to Seoul with my bff on 31 July, and spent a whopping 9 days in South Korea, before flying back. It was a very welcome break, and we stuffed ourselves silly with all types of Korean cuisine (we didn’t even repeat any dish twice, save for patbingsu, their equivalent of ice

My Mom’s Best Banana Loaf

I’ve been challenging myself lately, first to blog more regularly, and do the things I have been wanting to do ever since I started the blog, and second to learn how to swim. My best friends, Jon, and my family have been harping on the fact that I always say I want to learn how to swim – this has been top of my New Year resolution list since…forever? At

Zebra Cheesecake for Bake-Along #46

As predicted in my last post, my birthday passed without a bang. Also as predicted, I spent my birthday doing what I liked best – reading and baking. I also took a break that morning from my Atkins diet – a no-no but it was my birthday and I CBF. I ate roti prata in the morning (technically I ate 1 roti prata, 1 thosai and 1 roti tissue, shared

Happy Birthday to Me…a No-bake Snickers Icebox Cake

Today’s technically not my birthday, because for sure I wouldn’t want to be posting on my blog on my birthday when I can be doing so many other things…like baking and eating and reading and plain lazing around. The four things I mentioned are perhaps the things I love to do most, not in order of preference of course. This year I am marking an important birthday…because I will be

Chocolate Swirl Sour Cream Bundt #bundtamonth

I have been feeling a little ambivalent lately. Could it be my quarter-life crisis? I guess the problem mainly lies with the uncertainty I’m facing with my future, which direction I’m headed, where I’m going to be (literally and figuratively), and me being an obssessive compulsive list planner (and if you’re a regular blog reader you will definitely be aware of my many lists), I can’t help but feel a

Giveaway winner…and some updates

First, I need to apologize for the belated giveaway announcement. It didn’t strike me that the date I was to make the annoucement would be new year’s eve and I would be rushing around like a headless chicken doing CNY preparation with my mom. So I’m sorry for those who participated in my giveaway…read on below for the results! The past week, I have been a little busy with a

Tricolor Chocolate Ogura Cake (三色巧克力相思蛋糕) or ‘Xiangsi’ cake

This is perhaps a very delayed post considering that I baked this some time ago when there was a fad to make this Ogura or Xiangsi cake on the local blogosphere but well, better late than never! Work is gradually slowing down, which is fantastic, because I will be going on leave from 21 December for a short holiday to clear leave (and to relax)! This will be my first Christmas

Pink Ombré Strawberry Shortcake

I have been rather remiss in posting this past few weeks. If you noticed, the last post didn’t have any pictures and the previous one on Levain Boulangerie consisted of photographs taken way back during Vesak. The ironic thing is that although I’ve been baking rather diligently the past few weeks (for a colleague who is my first huge (and paying) customer), I’ve been way too lazy to whip out the camera
