Fraisier Cake

It was one of my childhood best friend’s birthday not so long ago. We’ve known each other since our mums first met in a hair salon whilst still expecting us. Since then, we pretty much stuck together from Primary school to University. She’s like a sister to me. A very wise individual who doesn’t mind me always turning to her with my problems. I truly love her to bits!

I’m back!

The sun is shining! The birds are chirping! And the ice-creams are melting! That only means one thing here in London; Summer is finally here! Us Brits loves to talk about the weather because it is always so horrible! 48 weeks of miserable, wet and gloomy days, no wonder we seem so grumpy all the time to our friends abroad! Lets just hope that our so called summer can last a little more than 4 weeks this year round! Fingers are crossed!

Well, as the tittle of this post says; I’m back! Continue reading

Black Sesame Braided buns – Tang Zhong starter method

A lot of people spend a life time seeking their meaning of life. And at the meantime that is exactly what I’m going through. The constant thoughts and questions; what is the purpose of life, what is it that I want to do, and even why do we exist.

I pondered on having a career in marketing to accountancy and even taking the risk and start up my own business. As a result I rejected an opportunity to work as a marketing manager assistant, interned at an accountancy firm and asked to work in a Michelin Star recommended Restaurant’s Kitchen.  Continue reading

Chocolate French Macarons

Macarons! These small round French biscuits are crispy and chewy at the same time. A delicate treat that never fails to lift my spirit!

My love for them started 5 years ago when I had my first Macaron. It was filled with a rich dark chocolate ganache that complemented the crisp and tender shells. But they are expensive little treats that can cost around £1.70 for a single one!  Continue reading

Creamy custard buns (Using the Tang Zhong starter method)

Here comes another post about buns using the Tang zhong method, seriously they come out pillow soft, made even without a bread maker. I remember I’d be obsessed with custard buns when i was a child. My parents would buy me one every time we leave china town so that I can sit quietly at the back of the car adoring the creamy vanilla custard filled buns. But as I got older and understood the meaning of money, I decided to save it instead. But now I Continue reading
