DSC_0729 copy


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 everyone! It’s been 7 months since Caramel Factory has been in operation and I must say that it has been a very enjoyable (and also busy) 7 months!  We have had a lot of requests for macarons and other cakes during this period, and although we could not fulfill them all, we are trying very hard to sell more pastries in the shop.

So I’m happy to announce that during this Ramadan month (July 25th – August 18th) we are going to sell macarons at the shop!

We have two types of packages:

Basic Class * Japanese Cream Puff!

30 May

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

Here are the dates for this class.

June 9th (Sat.) 10:30am-2:00pm –> FULL

June 24th (Sun.) 10:30am-2:00pm –> 2 more seats left!

Fee: RM180 (RM135)

*This class will be additional 10% OFF (RM120 only) if you’ve joined the Hinamatsuri Special Class in March!

If you are interested in joining this class, please contact us by email or sms/call; caramelmoko@gmail.com / 012-352-3106 (Tomoko). Thank you so much and I look forward to hearing from you!!!

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!


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!

Special Macaron Workshop – Feb.11th!

This weekend we are also having a Special Macaron Class!

You will learn two kinds of macarons; Belgium Chocolate & Vanilla Rose during the 3 and a half hour course. Both flavors are very well received by the customers that have tasted my macarons, so please look forward to the class, students!

For Belgium Chocolate Macaron, the filling is chocolate ganache and for Vanilla Rose, the filling is vanilla flavored buttercream. Not only the difficult macaron crust, you get to learn the tips of making the fillings.

Feb.11th(Sat.) class is already full but we plan to have another class in March. So if you couldn’t join this time, please look out for the next class!

Vanilla Polvoron*

26 Jul

Last weekend I went to Port Dickson for the PD triathlon event. It was my second time there. I supported my husband and his friends who participated in the race. This time with Hanae, I couldn’t see much of the event but it was still fun and exciting! They all did well and improved from their last year’s times so it was quite fulfilling. I wish to go there next year again!

By the way, I baked this cookie the day before our PD trip. The cookies are called vanilla polvoron.

I got this recipe from my friend. It seems like this cookie is a Spanish traditional cookies during Christmas. The cookies are fragile that if you could chant “Polvoron, polvoron, polvorn” three times while eating it without spitting any of it out, your wish will come true.

It taste like shortbread cookies.

I found vanilla flavored tea by chance, so had them together. A nice tea time after long busy days…
