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?

Matcha Chiffon Cake Recipe

Happy New Year everyone!

Seems like I’m on a roll with making chiffon/sponge cakes.

Sunday was Jo’s 21st birthday surprise.

1500842_10152151856005915_2064677359_o I intended to make her a macaron tower, but only found a miniature little styrofoam cone in Art Friend. A wee bit too small for the party but bought it anyway. So hopefully I’ll be using it some other time!

Anyway, the cake is a basic Matcha Chiffon Cake from Keiko Ishida’s Okashi, sweet treats made with love. I read many reviews on how this chiffon was a good one before attempting it. Overall, the texture of the chiffon is very light and tends towards more of the dry side (very much unlike the Pandan Chiffon).

Green Tea Cake with SMBC I used a SMBC (same as the Rosette Orange Cake) to frost the cake and imbibed the chiffon with a 1:1 sugar syrup.

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.
