classic carrot cake with dreamy creamy white chocolate frosting.


It's funny how I would almost always pick carrot cake over chocolate yet have only made the former about a grand total of two times thus far.

white chocolate mocha cupcakes with lemon macarons {macaron recipe only}.


This summer vacation I flew back to the land of eternal summer. You know, Singapore's cityscape morphs so rapidly that a year away felt like five, but the humidity will always be an unchanging element.

cheesecake waffles sandwiches.


I have a little thing for sandwiches going on for quite some time now, with which my slight fixation means that even cheesecakes shall not go disregarded.

matcha chocolate babka.


The matcha ideas never seem to stop coming! I guess this is to be expected - after all, where else but the home to enough matcha lattes to supply an asian parallel of Willy Wonka's chocolate river would have the capacity to inspire a limitless amount of matcha creations with it's own impressive assortment?

cheesecake brownie "ice cream" pops.


This is for all the folks out there who when the degrees celsius and fahrenheit are rapidly ascending past the point of cool breezy comfort, ice cream is practically superimposed onto everything you see to the point that you suspect that your contact lenses are ice-cream-tinted but for the life of you you have not even the ghost of a clue why you purchased a fridge without a freezer compartment.

Can't empathise? Then how about this - you just feel like camouflaging a brownie as an ice cream pop because it's April and these are so dang cute.

matcha loaf cake.


Presenting the second cake I made last week - a matcha (green tea) cake amped up with a generous dose of matcha syrup post-bake.

double chocolate marble cake.


The pink carpet of spring has been rescued from its lengthy confinement in the warehouse of seasons and unrolled with a grand push to excited whispers and barely concealed cheer. Spring might as well be the most anticipated season only second to Christmas, but unlike the latter where festivities are glitzy and glamorous and voices are loud and effervescent, this season is surrounded by a gentle elegance - people tend to stroll and children may skip but footsteps are never too rushed like they were in the dead of the unforgiving winter cold. Heavy coats are shrugged off for less burdensome jackets in more uplifting shades; lunches are ordered to go and consumed under petaled umbrellas of pastel pink and white while engaging in leisurely conversation.

think spring (no-bake greek yogurt strawberry cheesecake).

dessert - no-bake greek yogurt strawberry cheesecake

Spring is almost upon us and in with Valentine's Day just over a week ago and Hina-matsuri approaching, the color pink is slowly making its appearance amongst dreary winter hues. I thought that now would be an apt time to dedicate an entire post to this cherry blossom shade.

a trio of truffles + a couple of cafes.

gifts / dessert - chocolate chestnut rum truffles / dark chocolate honey truffles / tiramisu truffles

When your room's a natural refrigerator-sometimes-freezer, it's somewhat of a shame to not make truffles. And croissants. And prepare batches of pie dough. I would have checked off the latter two except that my oven is imaginary.
