Strawberry Victoria Sponge Cake Posted by: | June 24, 2012

Throwing a high tea party is fun. The cakes are just a bonus. The main fun lies in choosing the prettiest cake to bake to be the star of the party. Throwing a farewell high tea is not as fun though, but still a reason for me to find a gorgeous cake to bake to […]

Christmas baking: Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies Posted by: | January 2, 2012

(For some reason this entry posted on 18 December has mysteriously disappeared off my blog, so I’m reposting it again. In case anyone wonders why I’m posting about Christmas Baking way after Christmas…) December is my favorite month of the year (next to my birthday month, June, of course). It gives me an excuse to […]

It’s my second weekend of hectic shuffling across town to go to my baking lessons on both Saturday & Sunday, while trying to maintain a social life and also spend time at home to eat & cook with family. But truth is, this past two weekends have been my most rewarding weekends in Hanoi since […]

Apologies again for my lack of blogging. But all the work travelling has taken a toll on my blogging routine. However, it’s all going to change from now, because I have started a Baking course at Le Croissant bakery, and will be baking at the Bakery every Saturday & Sunday from now for 6 weeks. […]

Vietnamese Dessert: Chè Cốm Posted by: | July 31, 2011

The past 2 months have been eventful and turbulent at the same time, which unfortunately kept me away from this little blog that normally would be a reflection of my life status. If you see entries coming up regularly, it means I’m contented, stable and happy. If you see no entries for more than 3 […]

Apple Upside Down Cake Posted by: | May 16, 2011

It’s been a crazy week of work and writing/reading for my upcoming projects. My head, and my desk, are a complete mess full of scribbled ideas and notes.

Snow Mountain Cupcakes Posted by: | January 17, 2011

It’s been a crazy week. In fact, it’s been a crazy month ever since 2011 started. A business trip, 10 dance lessons and countless practices, 2 cold waves (6-8deg Celsius) has made this month a little difficult to get by. However, I did start it with a bang. On 1 Jan 2011, I baked these […]
