Making this cake had cost me, my wedding ring. Whenever I made a cake, I would take out my wedding ring and put it aside – to avoid contamination. But born with clumsiness, I managed to throw away my ring into the rubbish bin – without even realizing it. Up to know I don’t really remember when or where did I throw it away. Well… I guess that’s why it was a wise decision to choose a plain and simple wedding ring – If you lost it, you don’t really cry the whole day because of it. Still, it was a stupid mistake :(… stupid me … next time I’ll just wear on my neck.
Moving on, this cake was inspired by a cake recipe Bakers Royale and one of the recipes from Rachel Khoo book. The cake was a combination of 4 layers of goodness: Blueberry Sponge Cake, Lemon curd, Mascarpone Cheese and Almond Meringue top. The idea of the cake might be similar with lemon meringue cake , but trust me this one is better. Continue reading

But you know life has ups and downs. So I guess this is the down. Forgive me god, for throwing those things. Amen. Continue reading
I have to confess … I have been wanting to make Japanese cheese cake ever since my hubby ordered a chiffon cheese cake from my favorite cake shop (Kki Cake shop). I tried about 5 times to make it, and I failed 4 times. I only succeeded 1 time, and it didn’t even have that perfect shape. It was a bit shrinking on the sides, but it was not sinking on the top. It was fluffy and quite nice in terms of texture. Continue reading
