Tonight, I dreamt of being famous and having my own fan club . . . . but in fact I don’t have one! I guess I am not famous, just normal compared to some . . . . . . what can I do as I don’t have fans. I guess I can’t when I can’t even afford the best wine in town, and how can I even afford having bottles of champagne but I do enjoy the present of caviar. Holding private parties at my humble residence were just an illusion. Do you think I deserve having my own fan club?

I guess as for now I don’t need one as I can’t afford to have one but it will be fun to have one in time, but will you be my fans?Maybe for now I can only afford to have some bamboo charcoal. Well, don’t under estimate the bamboo charcoal as it can do so much amazing things and miracles. It has a strong absorption of toxin which helps to remove waste in our system. I was told it able to strenghten our bowel movement and improves the digestion of food. Bamboo charcoal infact promotes health and improves liveliness. I am sure you have seen bammboo charcoal being used in breads but I decided to make some rouleau with it and here is the recipe that I would love to share with you, charcoal bamboo rouleau.

    Seriously, BBO is good in marketing but the cake on the other hand is nothing compared to the `famous`baker. One word – should not skim on ingredient and make sure its fresh when you deliver to customer.

      Firstly, we don’t usually publish anonymous comment as we had mentioned it before thatb we dont publish anonymous comment but your comment is so interesting that we decided to publish it after all.

      Firstly, is Anonymous, Anonymous?
      Usually is but not for this one. Why? you may ask. Well it is just the same answer Lilian Chan will tell you, using .com one will be able to track one who left the anonymous comment, and we did found who you are.

      BBO is not good in marketing at all but thanks for the compliment. We are just a two bakers who have a passion in what we do. and we are not a big organisation, therefore we don’t have any budget for marketing! :)

      We are not sure who are you comparing us with especially the “famous baker”, as far as I know you maybe comparing us with Fat Boys Bake? Just Heavenly? . . . . To us there should be no comparison, why? as our style is different from those mentioned. We dont produce home baker style cakes and we are more towards modern french, japanese, and taiwanese style of desserts. We are cake designers.

      You accused us for skimming on our ingredient, that make us wonder if you have ever work with us in our kitchen to see the ingredinets that put in our recipes. I guess not, I guess your statement may not be valid at all. :)

      You stated that our dessert may not be fresh, but we can assure our customers get fresh desserts from us, giess you had yet to order our dessert before.

      Therefore thank you so much anonymous for giving us such a good advices and we assure you that we will work even harder and improve our desserts for the better.

    It is a brilliant idea to set up a BBO fan club. Do count me in, la!

    I’ve heard the benefits of using/consuming bamboo charcoal. People used it to make bread, soap and etc.

    I’m eager to try out your recipe but where can I buy bamboo charcoal… the most important ingredient?

    the last time i checked, your blog was different, and somewhat, how shall i put it, immovable.

    i had the chance to try charcoal bamboo bread the first time just last week. i was intrigued by its color. i didn’t feel the bowel moved… maybe didn’t have enough to get a reaction. anyway, his charcoal bamboo comes in black powder form? excuse my ignorance, i don’t bake.
