Fraisier Cake & Financier au The*

27 Feb

dsc_0990-copy

Premium menu for March class is Fraisier, a French style Strawberry cake. In Japan we have Strawberry short cake, a lighter type of Strawberry cake with pate a genoise (sponge cake), fresh cream and strawberry. Many of the traditional French cakes use buttercream in their cakes, and so as Fraisier cake.

Following the tradition, in the class we bake biscuit genoise and make it into thin slice and sandwich with creme moussline and strawberries. The traditional Fraisier cake has marzipan on top. In the class, we will coat with strawberry nappage. I will use Korean strawberries in this class ^^*!

The second menu for this class is financier au the, a tea flavoured petit gateau. Since we use egg yolk for the Fraisier custard cream, we use egg white for this buttercake!

Here is the class schedule;

DATE:      March 4th (Sat.) 11:00am-3:00pm

                   March 9th (Thurs.) 11:00am-3:00pm

                  March 26th (Sun.) 11:00am-3:00pm – FULL

I will be repeating this class in April. Thanks.

Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you!

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!

September & October 2016 Class Schedule*

21 Aug

DSC_0849 copy

Hi there!

August passed very fast for me. The exciting Rio Olympic games is about to be finished. I was supporting Japanese players and also Malaysian players every night and morning… I especially liked the swimming part! In the meantime, my daughter had a long school holiday and despite us planning to do things with her, our family fell sick one by one… from either fever or food poisoning during her entire holiday^^; So we ended up watching the Olympic games and doing some non-physical activities in and around our house. In any case, it was an interesting summer holiday for me and I am glad my family is well now. Nothing beats staying healthy!

I would like to post September & October 2016 class schedule today, as I will be going back to Japan in the middle of October to early November. Summer is ending and autumn is coming, and I would like to introduce a couple of new yummy autumn recipes. Let’s enjoy the apple fiesta in the next two months ^^*!

“Beard Papa Style” Japanese Cookie Choux*

30 Mar

DSC_0744

 

Our new menu for April 2016 will be “Beard papa style” Japanese Cookie Choux!

Some of you (who have taken many of my cream puff classes^^) might be wondering whether it will be the same as what you’ve learnt before, but I say this will be different! The method of making the batter and the cream will be similar, but this one will grow bigger with cookie tightly attached to the choux. Inside is hollow so we will fill this with cream from the back.

 

DSC_0750

 

I have always wanted to make a cream puff like this, and after visiting Japan in end of 2015 to earlier 2016 and trying out Beard papa cream puff almost every day (haha), I’ve decided to try another shot. I am happy with the outcome and am excited to be introducing you this new recipe!

 

DSC_0790

 

The choux is quite big, so each of you will get to bring 5~6pcs back home.

 

DSC_0857

 

Another recipe for this class will be Carmamel Finacier. Since we have extra egg white after making creme patissiere (custard cream), we make use of it for this second recipe.

 

DSC_0800 copy

 

 

We will use this heart-shape mold and pour caramel sauce in the middle part. It will be a lovely cake^^.

Here is the schedule for this class;

DATE&TIME:      April 23rd (Sat.) 11:00am-2:30pm – FULL

                                 May 8th (Sun.) 11:00am-2:30pm *Mother’s Day* – FULL

    FEE:                    RM200 (RM159  for members)

*I am planning another class in May or June. So kindly keep yourself posted, thanks!

 

If you are interested in joining, kindly email me at caramelmoko@gmail.com. (Sorry I might overlook facebook or sms messages, so please email to me.)

Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you!

 

Cheers,
