Vanilla Macarons

Hello everyone!

I’m currently in Bangkok, Thailand, for my student exchange programme. I’ll be here for about 5-6 months so there’ll definitely be less baking 🙁 Hopefully I’ll be able to get my hands on an oven or something! Otherwise, I’ll probably just update with the yummy desserts that I get to see around here 🙂

In other news, I got featured on Top Inspired’s Top 10 Fluffy Chiffon CakesAlthough I’m cooped up in the apartment right now due to demonstrations here, seeing this notification in the morning really made my day!

A couple of weeks back, I made about 100 macarons for my family X’mas party, and then another 100 as gifts for some friends & family. I used Pierre Herme’s Macaron shell that I used for the Pandan Coconut Macarons and filled it with my favourite SMBC. Yes, it’s really boring that I keep doing that but it doesn’t get any better than a solid vanilla macaron, does it?

Rosette Orange Sponge Cake

Hi everyone!

It’s been a really long time since I updated. So sorry about that. Straight after exams, I left for my family holiday (read all about it at Midi & me) and haven’t really had time to bake/update since I came back. I totally procrastinated on that 12 days of Christmas thing and have decided to put it off.

On Saturday, I had a bake sale with one of my lovely NUS Biz girls, Joanna. It was pretty nice to have most of our stuff sold out. Thanks for the support if you came down to get some sweet treats for yourself. I’ll do an update on that at a later time.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

A little while back, I teamed up with The Meatmen to produce some exclusive videos for SCS Dairy.

The first video on Red Velvet cupcakes is up so do have a watch.

Red Velvet cake/cupcakes became all the rage about 2 years back, with people being extremely attracted to the bright hues of the cake. Red Velvet, as the name suggests, is supposed to taste so smooth, very much like velvet. I’ve tried countless of Red Velvet cakes in the past two years and I have to say that very few places actually maintain this standard of a silky smooth cake with just a tinge of cocoa. This recipe is definitely one that will give you a perfect cake that is red enough and soft enough. What really cuts it, however, is that luscious cream cheese frosting. I’m not a fan of cream cheese but I can’t stand it when I go to cake shops/cafes and notice that the carrot cake or red velvet cake is accompanied with a really stingy amount of cream cheese. I mean, come on! It is that thick slab of cream cheese goodness that actually makes people like the cake so much. (Trust me, my sister can eat the red velvet cake without eating the cake itself)

Do enjoy the video & head over to SCS Dairy for the full recipe 🙂

Much love,
Eugenia
