Banana Honey Bread

Trust me with this… Forefinger pointed at right angles to the thumb.┬áBoth hands. Move both arms in a rotating motion, pointing at the sky. Big grin, lots of teeth ­čśÇ Now, at this point if you have a sudden urgency to say whoop whoop, can we be best friends forever?┬árefrain yourself for just a minute […]

Strawberry Pocky Vanilla Bean Cake

There’s a private joke about Pocky biscuits that exists between myself and one of my super awesome chicks of a friend, Lizarita. It’s the type of joke that when you share out loud to the rest of the group, they all look at you with big eyes and wide smiles and exclaim enthusiastically, ‘Oh, that’s […]

Mini Apple Pies

They say it usually takes 6 weeks to make or break a habit. I’m not too sure who the ‘they’ are in this case, but Google verifies this statement, so it has to be true, right? ­čśŤ Anyway, having been away on holidays (can’t believe I’m back┬áalready!) for about that amount of time, I can […]

Rainbow Cake

As a child, I remember being completely obsessed with all things rainbow. The first page of all my books were decorated with┬ápsychedelic scribbles, the belt of my jeans were rainbow, my hair clips were rainbow, and I’m pretty sure if I was allowed to I would have changed my name to Rainbow (not to be […]

Vanilla Custard Fruit Tart

Tarts have always intimidated me. I think if I were a sponge cake (because that’s a completely normal and sane thought for a baker, right? :P) I’d definitely be friends with the cupcake and cookie group, but would probably shy away from the Tarts ­čśŤ Anyway I think my fear of tarts was probably due […]

Melting Moments with Strawberry Jam & Cream

Was it the Cookie Monster that started the whole ‘nom nom nom’ craze? I’m not too sure. I don’t even quite know what it means, however I think it’s suppose to be the sound one makes when they’re devouring something entirely delicious. So if that’s the case, then I was┬ádefinitely nom nom nomming when I […]

Vanilla Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream

I made these cupcakes for my little cousin who turned a big whooooooping 19 a few weeks ago. I think. She’s either 19 or 20. ┬áBut I’m putting my money on the former. Wait, she could have possibly turned 18… I’ve lost count. T’is what happens when you surpass your mid twenties and head towards […]

Lamingtons

I recently had the opportunity to travel across the ditch to New Zealand for work and had such an amazing time. Auckland is truly a beautiful city – it reminded me of a mini Melbourne with a touch of Sydney with its harbour. Although it was wonderful being in Auckland, I found my mind wandering […]
