flourless chocolate cake

comeback


after a long pause, i finally got into the mood and actually had the time to bake. it's been a really long while since i last baked or made any desserts, and i am all rusty now. so with the raya season still on, we had a few friends come over to our small raya open house. i thought it would be lovely if i baked a cake for them.





in all my excitement, i forgot to check all the ingredients available in my stash at home so when i was all ready to bake (with all my baking stuffs already out from their hiding nooks), to my utmost horror i found that the flour i had had in my stash had gone bad.

and yes, i was really disappointed at the time. it was too late to go out shopping for flour.

but then i remembered something. flourless cakes. flourless chocolate cakes.

so i googled for recipes, and came across this awesome one.

the curious case of the melting fondants

of cupcakes and flowers





this is a very long overdue post. since i was so busy with work, baking came to a halt and the same went for blogging too. but now that maternity leave has started (yeays!), i can get back to baking and blogging soon!

well, i'm not sure what it will be like when baby finally arrives though. heheh. first timer me. i'm guessing there won't be much baking/blogging time either.

anyways, i just wanted to share with you guys about this curious case of the melting rolled fondants. i'm not so sure why, but the rolled fondant i used for these cupcakes somehow melted (!!) on top of the icing. after googling for troubleshooting QnA's, i came to a few conclusions:


  • can't have rolled fondants on cream cheese
  • the rolled fondant i used was of low quality?

orange pomelo cupcakes with cream cheese frosting

feels good to give :)


i made some cupcakes for a charity event yesterday at Kirtash charity home in Bukit Beruntung. Kirtash is a non-profit charity home for orphans, disabled children, and some old folks as well. the event was hosted by the Affin Management Programme trainees. 

at first i had chocolate in mind, as undoubtedly everyone loves chocolate. it's almost like a universal flavor. but then, orange suddenly popped into my mind. 

so i googled for recipes, and found this

and i immediately thought that this was a great recipe, and would be very lovely if paired with cream cheese. 






i was right :)

just peachy

frozen cheesecake with peach crumble base topped with mango pudding



i made this dessert a few weeks back, but didn't have the time nor the energy to post a new update up on the blog. working life is really hectic this year, no la dolce vita for me this year.







i planned to whip up some chilled desserts for our small house party, well actually it was more of a football night really. it was for the first match of piala something... (please excuse my ignorance) and it definitely was TRW's match that night. so we had some friends over, and had a small Raya/Bola feast. 

i had 'healthy' in my mind when i was thinking of the dessert, and OAT somehow came into the picture. so i googled for recipes, aaandd this came up.

cream puff

my first


last week i decided to finally make some cream puffs. i've always wanted to make these cute little puffs of creamy custardy goodness, but never got around to it. 





i used this awesome recipe i found on the internet. as always, the recipe is super simple, super easy, and yes, foolproof. i absolutely LOVE foolproof recipes. heheh. 

and i could say, watching the little puffs rise in the oven made me really really happy. it's true when they say baking is a therapy. stress reliever yes!
