Sunny Yaw Year End Desserts featured on Guang Ming Newspaper

Page1

This is truly fabulous as my year end Christmas dessert creations were featured at the Guang Ming Chinese newspaper on Sunday. I had the macaronns captured and towers were built using the coloured ones. The beauty of macarons can easily be identified as they come in many colours and flavours. The macaron tower itself can easily glitter your serving table this Christmas without fail. It can also be an awesome gift for this Christmas and also for those who are celebrating birthdays! I just love them all especially the ones that I constructed myself :)

page2

During this festive I had also sculptured Christmas Towers using thumb print cookies. They are awesome and look very pretty Owning one is so easy, just get me to make it for you. :) yet another must have dessert this Christmas will be definitely the Christmas fruit cake. I had them covered with white and green royal icing or just with golden ribbons. Sending a dessert as a give can be truly a good idea. Mille crepe would be a fabulous idea too.

Definitely this year end would be fabulous and having to celebrate with delicious is a must! . . . . . . . . so have a great jolly Christmas this year and I will continue baking more lovely desserts, Sunny Yaw

Ma Cherie Macaron by Chef Guillaume Nicoli

Ever since my trip to Paris this year, I have been addicted to macarons. These lovely goodies are not only cute and pleasing to the eye, they are little bites of happiness in the mouth too. Since my return to Auckland I had been searching around for some authentic macarons and months later, I’ve found them!

DSC_0237

Not only that, I was lucky enough to meet Pastry Chef and owner of Ma Cherie, Guillaume Nicoli who happily agreed to show me how macarons are made. Double joy!

DSC_0112

Guillaume is a French patissier with over 15 years of experience, having worked for top-ranking French maestro Thierry Mulhaupt in Strasbourg and at the famous Fauchon in Paris. When he moved to New Zealand, he brought along his expertise in macaron-making. Ma Cherie was born out of Guillaume’s passion and expertise in fine French pastry making. Ma Cherie supplies fine French pastries to a number of cafes in Auckland. Macaron Trees and Croquembouche can be made to order by Ma Cherie for weddings and events.

Eric Chong The Birmingham Cake Connection

A slice of Blackforrest Cake by Eric Chong

I have been busy. Many students dropping by the studio to learn baking. Some even flew in from abroad and that got me truly excited. My time was booked and hooked and I can’t chicken out. I was worried as I was not sure the exceptation from my students but I always make sure my students get the best out of me.

A British born lad Eric Chong was one of my student who flew in from Birmingham for a four days full day intensive one to one baking class session with me and Ben. All the techniques and recipes were well architected for Eric. A well dedicated Eric was a fast learner and had won great admiration from Chef Ben and myself for having such precision and perfection at even a beginner level.

Eric Chong now is back in Birmingham polishing his art of baking and we hope he will be able to embark into churning his own home cake bakes soon. He got excited too and he had recently emailed me of all his successful bakes. Aren’t all of the creation look just fantastic?

Xavier and Siao Wearn A MACARON WEDDING

Siaowearn & Hubby

Xavier & Siaowearn

“I want something with a touch of French, he is French. . . can you design something nice”, she requested from Singapore.

Siaowearn wanted something simple and yet with a touch of French for her recent wedding dinner reception at Elegant Inn, Menara Hap Seng located at the heart of the city centre of Kuala Lumpur. She did not want to have a traditional wedding cake and I suggested of using macarons to created a wedding cake. She liked the idea and since then I had been proposing a few . . . .

‘”a macaron tower?” the first thing came into play . . . . . ” looked so christmas” she replied.
“a wedding cake with exterior coated macarons?” I suggested . . . . . . . “sounds huge” she replied

After a few days of discussion, back and forward from my drawing board we got the design of the wedding cake utilising macarons finalised.
