Eric Chong The Birmingham Cake Connection

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?

Baking at Anna’s Culinary Singapore

Sunny Yaw at Anna's Culinary Singapore A

Last night I had a great night out with the group of foodies on food indulging at the Tropicana mall, just nearby my residence. It was truly awesome as we had BBQ and dessert from RUI’s too (the Opera was awesome, so were the white chocolate cheese cake)! I will let you know the details late on the coming post.

Well, about a month or so I was in Singapore, . . . . yup I was doing my baking tour and I was at Ann’s Culinary. I had a two days non-stop baking, back to back session. It was a real demanding classes which I truly enjoyed them as it was really challenging and it fabulous.

The Amazing of The Opera !


My students were amazing, they are a real serious learners.




Once the basic ingredients had been prepared and done, we procced with the assembling of the Opera . . . such a simplicity.





Layers after layers, we had the sponge, the coffee, the chocolat ganache and the cream . . . . it was awesome and so fragrant . . . .






It’s the students turn to do the layering while waiting . . . . . . .






The trimming and cutting the Opera!


It’s the Opera tasting time!

The class was amazingly superb, great students and great piece of bake! . . . Love Sunny Yaw

OPERA – Always On My Mind

This opera cake had been always on my mind. Why?….. cause of it’s colour, texture and flavour as what Michael Buble sings ” Always on my mind”. Opera cake is something that I cannot resist. And here, I did a four layered opera cake. Each layer consists of thin layer of almond sponge cake, coffee syrup, butter cream and chocolate ganache. At the end I top it with gold flake and chocolate bits.

This is something that I can’t resist myself from, opera, you always on my mind.

Love Sunny Yaw
