Blueberry Cake

This Blueberry Cake is great for a simple tea party with your family and friends. I love to have slices of this cake with a cup of hot steaming cappuccino. It’s moist with a rich buttery taste and bursts of tart sweetness from the blueberries.

Chocolate Brownie with Blueberry Cheesecake

For chocoholics and cheesecake lovers, this Chocolate Brownie with Blueberry Cheesecake is a marriage made in heaven. The dense, cakey brownie is the perfect accompaniment to the slightly sweet blueberry cheesecake. Every slice is like an explosion of senses. It’s a two-in-one celebration of taste.

Blueberry Cheesecake

The Blueberry Cheesecake is fast becoming a personal favourite! I can't stop stuffing my poor hubby with it. He's gaining quite a bit of weight around the middle part. The thing is I cannot use any of that low-fat cream cheese. It just won't taste the same. If you are a cheesecake fanatic like I am, this should be on your list of must-have.

My Blueberry Cheesecake has blueberries inside and outside, I cover it with a generous serving of blueberry syrup. It's not overtly sweet with a slight tartness from the lemon juice I added.

White Chocolate Cake with Apricot Buttercream

A dear friend of mine wanted something different for her son's birthday and I suggested 'White Chocolate Cake with Apricot Buttercream'. It's sophisticated enough for the adults and the kids, as most kids do, would love the creamy white chocolate icing. This is a three-layered cake with generous servings of apricot slices in rich vanilla buttercream. The outer icing is pure white chocolate, making this cake suitable for any special events.

Orange and Poppy Seed Bundt Cake

I made this cake for a dear friend's wedding anniversary lunch. It's heavenly with a distinct orange scent and crunchy poppy seeds. The cake is moist and buttery, and I just love the bundt shape that allowed it to be decorated simply with dark and orange chocolate.

Farewell soon to 2010!

Gosh! It's been ages since I last submitted any post to my dearest BakeScapes blog. It's been a challenging couple of months. My hubby lost his Mom to old age and my stepfather passed away within the same week from cardiac complication. Life certainly has thrown its loop...a rather large one, I may add. We also experienced another loss closer to home and our heart. Well, I've been told many times over the length of my lifetime that 'what doesn't kill you, make you stronger'. We will see, won't we?

Anyway, we are thankful for many things in our life and for me personally, my lovely kitchen remains a sanctuary. And I am glad that my friends and family continue to make me busy with orders upon orders. I continue to learn to be better at baking and hope to gain more knowledge as the New Year looms.

So, here's an early farewell to 2010. You shall not be forgotten.

Double Choc Chip Cookies with White Choc Nibs and Almond

Okay...the name is kind of long but if you're looking for a totally rich, chewy choc chip cookies, this is it! This is great with a glass of cold milk or dunk into hot chocolate drink. It can even rival the other 'famous' cookies. Around 2 inches wide, these are cookies for the fanatics.

Want to try? These are sold in batches of 30 pieces because they are just totally huge. Drop me a line at

Blueberry Surprise!

This is another type of cheese tart. The difference is that the blueberry is on the inside and there's more of them! I called these jewels 'Blueberry Surprise!". It's definitely richer because the tart shell itself is made using cream cheese. Talk about decadent. Made this batch for my brother and friends with tiny roses as decoration.

On Being Happy

Call me old-fashioned but one of my favourite movies of all time is the ‘Sound of Music’. For the uninitiated, the ‘Sound of Music’ tells the tale of a young nun-to-be who is sent to be a governess to the seven children of a handsome Navy Captain. As a musical, it was peppered with delightful and easy to remember songs such as ‘Do Re Mi’, ‘Edelweiss’, ‘Climb Every Mountain’ and many more. But my favourite song was the delightful ‘My Favourite Things’ sang by the lovely governess to her wards to calm their fear during one stormy night. It talks about whiskers on kittens, warm woolen mittens and raindrops on roses.

Well, one of my favourite things is the sweet scent of warm butter cakes, cinnamon raisin buns, rich chocolate brownies and many more baked goodies wafting through our home as they rise to perfection in my trusted oven. Every time I feel like I’ve been ran over by a steamroller or smashing another piece of china, I would revisit my well-thumbed notebook containing some of my favourite recipes. Soon, I would be covered in a thin mist of flour and splattered by bits of butter. And I couldn’t be happier. Within hours, I would soon be admiring another baked creation that comes from several unassuming and ordinary ingredients. Calm happiness prevails as I proudly present it to my husband, the designated tester, although his opinion can’t really be taken seriously. After all, he knows better not to say anything else but ‘nice’. And I continue to be happy.

Plain Chocolate Brownie

Baked a Plain Chocolate Brownie with Choc Ganache for a friend. She ordered it for a colleague's birthday  celebration at the office. It's darn rich and moist and really heavy! Almost 5.5kg! Could probably feed 30 people. Oh well, I'm never the sort of gal that would go half way.

Chocolate Almond Layer Cake

Baked a special cake for mum-in-law. Chose to bake a Chocolate Almond Layer Cake with Vanilla Buttercream for its rich chocolate taste, moist texture and crunchiness provided by the almond flakes. Got the thumbs up from the nieces.
