Crisp choux pastry this time in form of eclairs filled with matcha whipped cream and topped with a generous amount of white chocolate glaze dusted with earthy matcha green tea powder dust and a little white chocolate and gold dust detail.

And as I put […]

Choux Pastry Doughnuts with Pink White Chocolate Glaze

And sprinkles, of course! These doughnuts are light and airy Choux pastry with sweet white chocolate glaze in pink and colourful sugar sprinkles. They are fun treats and much lighter than traditional yeast doughnuts, and surely they aren’t fried but oven baked!

Mini Orange Papaya Cupcakes

Fruitylicious buttery orange papaya cupcakes with deep caramel flavour from unrefined organic coconut sugar. Before I tell you how tasty these cupcakes are, you should know that I don’t really like papayas! Yup, it’s sad (because I’d like to say I love all fruit) but the fruit of papaya is just too sweet for my liking and honestly the butter-like consistency of the ripe fruit isn’t what […]

Passion fruit/purple granadilla is intensely flavoured with it’s juicy, slightly sour pulp and crunchy seeds. Even the colors are intense, from it’s inedible […]
