The birthday is over for the 22 year old, and I attempted to bake the best chocolatey and peanut-buttery cake this world (or just my boyfriend) has ever seen/ATE! My mother and I chose to play it a little safe … Continue reading

Last year on valentines day I decided to celebrate with my very first bake. I made this cake on my own without the famous mamma jones (I was very proud!) This bake was a very generic red velvet cake topped with cream cheese frosting, my idea of cake h.e.a.v.e.n! The image shows my weak points… And that was the frosting. I have improved ever since thanks to mamma jones. Yet still the quote from my mum remains fresh in my memory
‘Sam you’ve made a bloody good cake! And you know me I speak the truth’ and she really does!
Ever since that valentines day I’ve been baking on my own ever since. Sometimes I win sometimes I loose but it’s trial an error! That’s the way I learn. This year however I’m tackling my first pastry for my valentines bake, and I’m terrified!! Fingers crossed there’s no soggy bottom on my tart… I’m praying to the pastry gods!
I’m going to be baking the famous Bakewell tart. God I miss a good bakewell! Singapore unfortunately doesn’t sell them… And everyday a good strong cup of tea just isn’t the same without a Bakewell tart! So especially for my boyfriend, who ever since came to the uk with me in the summer of 2013 has been in love with Bakewell tarts! He will now receive his wish 🙂 (he can stoop nagging me now!!) I’m going to share with you the recipe and take photos step by step of my pastry adventure!! I’ll be showing off my piping skills too with a little red heart in the centre (because I have to be cheesy for v-day!). Traditionally it’s topped with white icing and a glazed cherry yet I’ll add my special quirky twist because I’m Sam! So wish me luck on my adventure! I shall keep you posted 🙂
💘Happy Tuesday! Only 2 more sleeps till the big day 🙂 get baking with looooooove! 💌
