Basic Class * Japanese Cream Puff!

Another Basic Class Menu for June is Japanese Cream Puff and Vanilla Viennois!

This time we will bake what is called a Cookie Choux in Japan, which is a cream puff with crunchy biscuits on top! It is different from the cream puffs we baked in Hinamatsuri Special Class. The custard cream inside is also different too, and this is denser type of cream. We will bake those cream puffs in a small size and each of you will bring back about 18 pieces of them!


yum yum…

I’ll teach you the tips of making the cream puffs in round and nice shape!

The second item for this class is Vanilla Viennois, which is a light and crunchy cookie rich in vanilla flavor. To answer to some of my students, this is also quite different from Diamant Vanille or Vanilla Swirl cookies that I taught in the past. All my recipes are different for each classes ^^.

We will practice piping this cookie in a wavy shape. This cookie will be good for the coming Hari Raya Gifts to your family and friends!

The theme for this class is; Cream Puff, Cookie and Piping

Week-end or Cake au Citron (Lemon Cake) are quite common for the pound cake and this is rather an unique Orange version of Week-end. We will first bake the orange butter cake in a 18cm pound mold, then decorate them nicely and shiny by two layers of special coating.

It can be eaten both warm and after being chilled in the fridge!

While the cookies are being baked, I’ll show you how to make hand-dripped coffee using the coffee beans I brought back from Japan. This KALDI coffee beans are one of my favorite beans, and every time I go back to Japan I buy them back. Hand-dripping is the best way to taste the full aroma of coffee, and I hope to let you all taste it during the class. (Oh if you don’t take coffee I’ll make you tea as usual ^^).

Last week~***

21 May

I had a busy and interesting last week.

On Friday, I conducted a class at Cake Connection in Jaya One. It was such a pleasure for me to conduct a class in this lovely space, and I enjoyed teaching 6 kinds of Japanese and French pastries there. My seven students were all great and we got to share some experience while working our hands on the cakes.

I am conducting another class at Cake Connection on June 30th (Sat.), so please look forward to it!

On Saturday we had Bread Course Session 1 and Session 2. My bread making classes are all taught by using hands, and especially for Session 1 Sausage and Ham & Cheese Rolls we throw the dough on the kitchen top many times. I always get ‘laughs’ during this process. It’s time for the students to release their daily stresses, too^^!

It’s interesting to see how students shape their doughs – some are perfectionists and some are creative!

We have the same bread sessions this coming Friday and in July.

Session 1 – Sausage Roll & Ham and Cheese Roll

May 25th (Fri.)  10:30am-1:30pm

July 1st (Sun.)    10:30am-1:30pm

Session 2 – Chocolate Walnuts Bagel & Cranberry Honey Bagel

May 25th (Fri.)  2:30pm-5:30pm

July 1st (Sun.)    2:30pm-5:30pm


After rushing back from the kindergarten sports day event on Sunday morning, I conducted Intermediate Children Baking! This month menu was Vanilla & Chocolate Marble Pound Cake. As always children enjoyed baking dirtying their hands and mouths^^.

For children baking class, please check out our June Class Schedules!

yummy~~~!

After having my student’s home-made ‘nasi lemak’, I had Premier Class in the afternoon!

Mango Rare Cheesecake

Fondant Chocoalt

I only had 3 students for this class, so it was quite relaxing and we were chatting while baking. Yes, all my classes are with small group of people so it’s quite intimate^^. Another premier class to be held next Wednesday – May 30th!
