Big Boys Oven’s Christmas Cake I

“Chempedak” Moussecake top with Chestnut Cream

I am sure by now you will ask me why this cake. …answer: I love local fruits such as rambutan, jackfruit, star fruit, mangosteen, mango, durian and many-many more that are abundance available in Malaysia. So for this festive season I picked “chempedak” , a local fruit which is a cousin of jackfruit. It is a lovely fruit, full of aroma, fragrant and comes with great gorgeous texture too. Therefore I choose the honey “chempedak” to create this incredible delicious mousse for the base of this cake.

I love chestnut also especially when they are stuffed in a baked turkey especially during christmas…. so yummy. During last christmas, I stumbled upon this great fabulous chestnut puree available at Bangsar Village supermarket but I only managed to get two cans and they were already out of stock. So this year I make sure I had enough of this chestnut puree well stock in my cabinet. So I decided to top this lovely chestnut spagetti puree on the “chempedak” mousse.

I also shaped this cake into a christmas tree, bordered with white chocolat and top with pink chocolat and mini pink macaroons and end this creation with a gold coloured ribbon.

This creation is available now and also for order. If you want to put your taste buds of this lovely moussecake or have it on your christmas dinner and celebration, do let us know on It is available for RM40 /half kg and RM80/kg.

Hope this creation will lighten up your coming festive.

Love Sunny Yaw

    Hah! Seems that I’m the only person on this comment list thus far to say that I’ve been lucky enough to have had the cake ;p And guys, it was superb. Cheers to Sunny and Sidney for such originality. My family adored the design, but fell head over heels in love with the taste 😉 And of course no one but me got the macaroons either.. Love you guys, Love your cakes, Joanna.

    thank you and as pretty as you!

    thank you for dropping by.

    I think they are great combo.

    great to know that your family love the x-rated figurine on yhis cake…lol! I was also shocked that your mum also a macaroon addict :)

    wenching & esiong:
    hehehhehe lovely right!

    chempedak has a sweet fragrant smell and durian has a strong stink fragrant smell. I think you should able to get chestnut puree in can in canada. Mostly are imported from france or you can get the dry ones from chineses supermarket and cook them then puree them.

    this one did not take much time… but I have this in mind for some time, christmas was the best time to have it!

    Yes boys that can bake! lol! I guess you don’t believe me. lol! if you are back in malaysia, do drop by as we are in KL.
