Selamat Hari Raya!

I hope you all are having a wonderful Hari Raya celebration!

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!

Hi there! Ramadan month is starting. It’s been hot lately… I hope you take good care of yourself and have a good month ahead!

By the way, I will be conducting Raya Special Macaron Class in June. This is Caramel Factory’s signature macarons, using Italian meringue method. We will be making 4 kinds of popular flavours in the class; Japanese Green Tea, Raspberry, Chooclate and Vanilla macarons.

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!

Hi!

Today I am posting May 2017 class schedule ^^. 

Our theme for May is fresh lemon! I will be introducing “Week-end Citron Cake“, a French style lemon butter cake as our new recipe. Week-end Citron originates from people baking this cake on weekends to share with their family members and loved ones. Since May 14th is Mother’s Day, I think it is a great way to celebrate this day^^.

I will also be teaching Tart au Citron and other cakes from April classes. Ramadan month is starting from end of May. Let’s enjoy baking next month again!

The first menu is Coffee pound cake with walnuts. I am glad to be sharing this recipe with those of you who like drinking coffee^^. Most of my pound cake recipe uses sugar-butter method, but we bake this pound cake in a different way. We will be using coffee powder for the pound cake.

The scent coming out from the oven is so… nice!

The second item is Blueberry Cheese Tart. The parts are consisted of; pate a sucrecreme d’amande, blueberry jam, creme double and crumbs. If you have stored pate a sucre and creme d’amande in the fridge, this cake can be baked with almost no work!

March 2017 Class Schedule*

21 Feb

dsc_0990-copy

Hi there! Today I would like to post March 2017 class schedule! (Here is the class Calendar)

March 3rd is Children’s day in Japan for girls, called “Ohinamatsuri“. Japanese families with daughters put up Ohinamatsuri dolls in their houses for a month, and celebrate with special dishes such as chirashi-sushi, clam soup and strawberry cake. Each of the dish and ingredients have special meaning. For instance, having clam (hamaguri) in the soup is a wish for the girl to find her perfect soulmate, like the two identical shells of a clam!

dsc_0781

I also put out Hinamatsuri dolls for my daughter in early February ^^.

To celebrate this event, I would like to make Fraisier, a French style strawberry cake. I also am conducting Yakigashi Special class, since school holiday is coming soon. The simple and delicious yakigashi will fill you and your family’s stomach! I believe that this can also be one of the options for the coming Ramadan baking season too!
