  • Blueberry Elephant Macarons
    on Feb 19, 2015 in Baking Macarons
    I have no excuses. Not only have I not blogged in almost a month, I haven't baked in almost as long. A few years ago this would have been unheard of! But at the moment it's an unfortunate side-effect of my life. The last baking I did was for a dear f...
  • Jaffa Layer Cake with Macarons
    on Jan 11, 2015 in Baking Cakes/Cupcakes
    Hi! Happy New Year! Can you believe its 2015? Well it is. I know, I've been very quiet. I've been very busy. Life is craaaaaaaaaaazy. But there is always cake. I thought I should share this recipe with you before I forget how I made it. Because it's...
  • Candy Cane Peppermint and White Chocolate Swirl Cake
    on Dec 9, 2014 in Baking Cakes/Cupcakes Holidays
    Remember how I made this crazy lollipop cake? Well I decided to take it one step further for Christmas and make a crazy Candy Cane cake! I love me some candy canes. They are so pretty and deliciously pepperminty. And now I have enough candy canes in...
  • Christmas Wreath Macarons
    on Nov 30, 2014 in Baking Holidays Macarons
    YAYYY! December is here! Far out this year has gone by quickly. There are a lot of intense things going on at the moment, but that hasn't stopped me from getting into the Christmas spirit. Christmas is my all-time favourite holiday to bake for, I nev...
  • Raspberry Swirl Pavlova with Summer Fruits
    on Nov 17, 2014 in Baking Chilled
    You know what's strange? I love eating pavlova, it is one of my favourite summer treats but somehow I have never made it before. In all the years of baking, all the cakes and macarons and cupcakes, I have yet to make my own pavlova. So when I was ask...
  • Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Cake with Orange Icing & a Giveaway!
    on Nov 10, 2014 in Baking Cakes/Cupcakes
    Sometimes all you need is a good old-fashioned tea cake with a thick layer of icing on top. This buttermilk cake was made for an afternoon tea, chock-full of chocolate chips and topped with an orange-flavoured butter icing. It was simple but satisfyi...
  • Cherry and Vanilla White Chocolate Tart with a Brown Butter Shell
    on Nov 2, 2014 in Baking Pastry
    This year I've been enjoying the good and the bad parts of being a homeowner. As someone whose family moved around a lot when I was younger, it feels amazing to put roots down. Perth, Doha and Kuala Lumpur were all wonderful but Sydney is home. It's...
  • Raspberry, Rose and Lychee Sponge Cake
    on Oct 21, 2014 in Baking Cakes/Cupcakes
    I had a pretty good weekend. The weekdays have been not so great, but my weekend was lovely. And this weekend it was my Mum's birthday. She was in the country to celebrate it too! You may recall that this time last year was when my Mum's birthday cak...
  • 'Fried Chicken' Cookie Pop CakeBefore you say, "EW, what the eff?!" let me say this is NOT real fried chicken on top of a cake! I did not go there. It's actually cookie pops covered in cornflakes made to look just like fried chicken, with shortbread chips! But why? Last week was K...
  • Blueberry Swirl Cake with Lemon Curd Macarons
    on Oct 7, 2014 in Baking Cakes/Cupcakes Macarons
    My life is finally starting to return back to my regular routines. Weddings are hectic. And it wasn't even my wedding! Luckily for me, there was a long weekend the week after, which allowed me to rest up and get back my baking groove. So I made cake.
  • Psychedelic Rainbow Swirl Lollipop Cake
    on Sep 15, 2014 in Baking Cakes/Cupcakes Candy
    Woaaah. This cake is a bit of an attack on the eyeballs isn't it? But I love it so much. I think this may be my favourite cake that I've made this year. Yes, even more than the Pocky Cake. Last week was Regex Man's birthday, and in case you don't rem...
  • Caramel Mud Cake with Salted Caramel Icing, Crumble and Vanilla Poached Pears
    on Sep 7, 2014 in Baking Cakes/Cupcakes
    More celebratory cakes! A belated birthday cake. I was offered the challenge of making a cake that involved pear and salted caramel and I can rarely say no to a challenge. My friend is not a fan of sponge/cream cakes. He's a big fan of mud cakes, esp...
  • Strawberry Pocky Cake with Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries
    on Sep 2, 2014 in Baking Cakes/Cupcakes
    Phewwww, it's been a crazy week. I've been super quiet on the blog and instagram recently because everything has been full-on nutso in every other part of my life. Work, friends and home. One of the crazier things on the schedule was planning for Asi...
  • Coconut and Lychee Macarons
    on Aug 25, 2014 in Baking Macarons
    Helllloooo! This is just a super quick post to let you know that I'm still alive! Things are just super, super busy. These macarons are my peace offering to you for being so neglectful of my blog recently. Well actually, I wasn't actually being negle...
  • Eton Mess Cake
    on Aug 5, 2014 in Baking Cakes/Cupcakes
    Sorry for the late post this week, it's coming to you from the hazy world of head colds. Last weekend was my father-in-law's birthday and as per usual he requested a sponge cake with cream and fresh berries. This didn't surprise me but at first I...
  • Cookies and Cream Baked Chocolate Doughnuts
    on Jul 21, 2014 in Baking Bread/Yeast
    I love doughnuts. I eat them more often than I should. They're one of the few things that I would rather buy than make myself, mostly because I hate deep-frying anything. Me and hot oil don't mix well. You're talking to a girl who managed to stab a b...
  • Lemon Syrup Sponge Cake with Whipped Cream Cheese Icing and Berries
    on Jul 13, 2014 in Baking Cakes/Cupcakes Macarons
    It's been a crazy couple of weeks. I lost my tiny, ancient budgie who has been with me since I moved to Sydney and who I thought was going to live forever. I finally, FINALLY got my Ps, so have a newfound sense of freedom (don't judge, I lived right...
  • Vanilla Malt Cake with Honeycomb and Maltesers
    on Jun 29, 2014 in Baking Cakes/Cupcakes
    I really do love making super tall cakes. I don't get sick of them. The possibilities are endless and they are always so PRETTY. This particular cake was for my sister-in-law's birthday last week, and I served it on top of a stand full of the macaron...
  • Heart-Inside Macarons (Strawberry Cheesecake and Vanilla Malt)
    on Jun 22, 2014 in Baking Macarons
    I wasn't even going to blog about these little macarons. I was mayyybe going to photograph them along with the cake that they are going to presented with later this week. I didn't think they were going to deserve their own special post. But I posted...
  • Polka Dot Icing Cake with Strawberry & Rhubarb
    on Jun 17, 2014 in Baking Cakes/Cupcakes
    Today is Lisa's birthday! And it only seemed right to be celebrating with cake. Polka dot-covered cake to be exact. With some of our favourite flavours; strawberry, ginger and rhubarb. I may have thrown a bit of brown butter and vanilla bean into...
