I love this seeds as they can be mashed, crushed, ground and also dry roasted and they are sesame seeds. Sesame seeds are a fine source of calcium, iron and vitamin B, therefore they can provide a nutritional boost to our meals. There are two varieties of sesame seeds regularly used, white sesame and black sesame. This time I prefer to use black sesame and in Japan’s kitchen, they are used in combination with salt for sprinkling on rice and also with sugar in confectionary and this time I use toasted whole black sesame seed in my macarons.

“A macaron – two airy, tender almond domes skirted with an iconic little ruffle and sandwiched together with a luxe filling – is a simple cookie and not especially difficult to make” Paris Gourmet the magazine of good living

“GRIND the almond-sugar mixture very fine. The consistency of the BATTER changes slightly, depending on what you add to the meringue. THE CHOCOLAT variation has the loosest batter(because of the fat from the cocoa powder, as well as the nuts), the others are slightly stiffer but stillvery soft. THE MERINGUE will deflate once any fat is added, so don’t panic when that happens: You didn’t make a mistake.HOLD the pastry bag vertically and keep it low to form smooth even mounds. This type of BATTER keeps moving after you stop its flow, so factor that in when gauging the size of yur piped mounds. Practice makes PERFECT.” PARIS GOURMET the magazine of good living

Red Velvet Chocolat Cupcake From The Southern . . .

A rich and sweet cake is what a red velvet cake is. It is a southern origin which makes it distinctive, popular and the dark red tanning makes it looks so sexy and yet so appealing. A truly cake sex goddess, a real seducer as it is originated from a mixture of fragrant buttermilk, unsalted butter, refined flour, dutch cocoa and red food coloring.

I love the texture of the red velvet, soft and fragrant and the color too is so attractive. I love to have them in a naked medium paper cups top with soft cream cheese frosting or even buttercream frosting. One thing about this red velvet cupcake, I never like to share mine with anyone, just like to pamper it myself . . . . so no sharing, have one yourself!

A BED OF ROSES


Yet it had been another busy and luvly weekend, as always. Weekend is the time when I put on my thinking cap and start designing the next coming cakes or client’s cakes. I love flowers in a big way and my favourite flower will always be the roses. They come in many shapes, sizes and colours such as, white, champange, deep red, orange and a few more yet to mention.

Cakes and flowers had been alway being paired together in many ways. One day, I really got so excited when I read about Keiko’s work where she paired her cake with fresh flowers, such as roses. It was gorgeous and so lovely, yet touching, even with readers like myself and I just can’t imagine the one who is on the receiving end.

So last saturday night, I got to deliver a special ordered cake to M.E. & R.T., as they were having their family wedding dinner at one of the restaraunt in KLCC. Well, I guessed it will be a great chance to come up with something special and unique to make the bride and bridgroom happy before they go for their 2 months honeymoon in France.

I decided to do a Bed of Roses Cake for them. This cake consist of nearly 40 buds of imported champange coloured roses, a doubled layer marble honey cake with buttercream and lots of white chocolate squares. It was a great fun when it comes to the arrangment of the roses as it was rather challenging but we did it.

This time I would not say it is easy or even simple to make but I would put it as “It was a great fun and worth the time”.

Love Sunny Yaw
