End of last year and the first month of this year was a hell of a ride. I was setting up a business together with my friend which was cancelled due to some issues .Then I got an offer to supply some cakes to local café (which was quite successful) but then I stopped it (only after a month) because I couldn’t keep up with the increasing demand. Not to mentioned some cake orders for Christmas, New Year and Valentine. Continue reading
The last quarter of the year has always been the busiest time of the year. I’m not sure why but I always get multiple cake orders at the last quarter. Sometime it is quite challenging to balance the work, the cake order, and the recipe-trial-hobby at the same time. But if you ask me which one I like the most, I would have to choose the recipe trial. Not that I don’t enjoy doing the cake order, but I like the feeling of not knowing how the food is going to taste or look like. Well, most of the time it does not look like and taste the way how I expect it to be :)… (I have lots of kitchen failures – if you must know). But still it is just so curious and exciting to try new recipes.

But lets just move aside from this mumbling, complaining, non-related-to-food-blog topic to kitchen activities. Continue reading
One of my close friend came to visit me last week, it was not really a visit since she was just happened to be in the city for a day. But she did came and it was a rare occasion, so I thought maybe I should make something special for her. I know she likes nuts, specially almond and I happened to have a box of filo pastry sitting in my fridge. So M’hanncha is the ideal combination :).. thanks to Pinterest for the idea. Continue reading

I’m having bad weeks of baking for a few weeks now. I baked lots of cakes which ended in my garbage bin, and I felt really bad for throwing so much of the failed cakes lately. 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
