Hopping on the Cronut bandwagon
This dough too three days to make. Well, two and a half. When my friends Beadon and Shirley asked me if I'd be up to giving Cronuts ago, I gladly said yes as I love a good challenge. While Cronuts aren't too difficult to make, the recipe is long and the pro...

Birthday cake adventures
Pretty? Yeah, that's what I thought and that's where I went wrong.  I chanced upon this beautiful Pink cake with Aqua cream topping (well, the original cake had a Tiffany-blue frosting, which is almost the same) and I fell in love with how pretty it looked....

Garlic Twists and then some Empanadas
Sometimes the best things happen by chance. Like these garlic twists. They were the result of some extra dough from a batch of empanadas I made for a tea party (read: Chinese New Year gambling do) later today. I didn't make quite enough filling and so I end...

Fruit and Nut Shortbread
Fruit and Nut shortbread? I couldn't believe it. When I saw pictures of these  pretty shortbread cookies on the online food log, Tastespotting last week, I knew I had to rush home and get right down to it. I love shortbread and the thought of yummy, colourf...
