Japanese Cheese Cake (JCC)

Whoosh, I’m so happy with this Japanese Cheese Cake finally after fine-tuning and fine-tuning. Tested many times, no bubbly yolk batter, no kueh or dense layer and no cracks.

Salted Gula Melaka Nuts Drizzle

Zebra Butter Cake

One of my better zebra cakes where the lines are clear and distinct. The butter cake batter is really thick, so it’s actually quite hard to get the chocolate and original batters to form the zebra pattern nicely. You need to tap a few times after each addition to get the batter to smoothen out….

Swiss Meringue Butter Cream

Here’s a first attempt that I’m really so pleased with. SMBC is really tasty, very stable to work with and spreads on real smooth. I referenced Nasi Lemak lover’s and Wendy Inkk’s steps, but made slight adjustments to the recipe due to what I had on hand. It’s really not as daunting as I initially…
