Hari Raya Baking*

17 Jul

I hope you are all doing well^^.

Hari Raya celebration is still going, and we also baked macarons and other cakes during the festive period! The flavours are Belgium chocoalte, Caramel, Japanese green tea, Raspberry ganache and Vanilla macarons. Macaron making can be quite tedious and time-consuming, but it’s also fun to make and it feels accomplished when they are ready on a tray like this!

I also baked Japanese Cookie choux for some event. Both children and adults liked this cream puffs very much. I hope to bake them again soon!

 

Cheers,

Tomoko

Sorry for not updating blog for a while, and also haven’t announced July class schedule yet. As I will be going back to Japan from end of this month to middle of August, I will not be conducting classes till I come back. Hope to see you in September again!

The class will be held hands-on and I will be teaching how to make macarons in details. Macaron making can be quite tricky but if you practice a few times, I guarantee you can make nice macarons successfully even at home!

You can bring these macarons to your seasonal gatherings!

Weekend Citron & Lemon Biscotti

25 Apr

DSC_0900

 

May Basic class is Weekend Citron and Lemon Biscotti. As per its name, weekend citron is a lemon buttercake originally baked on weekends to share with family members and friends. I designed this class so that you can bake and enjoy the cake with your family during Mother’s Day ^^.

Sour cream is often used to make the buttercake moist and soft. We will be using something else, a simpler ingredient, to replace it for the cake ^^! And coat the top with lemon glacage.
