Opera Cake

The best opera cakes are available at La Brioche.

We enjoyed this seductive pastry at the branch located in Boutik Mall, Reem Island. Its an upcoming place and the next best hang out zone for shopaholics.

Dark Chocolate Cake

Yup they’re still there! I remember Sea Side Patisserie back to when I was a kid in Abu Dhabi, and dad would get these pastries for us on really rare or deserving occasions as they were the best in town – Tourist Club, Abu Dhabi. Must visit and try their other specialities too: croissants, biscuits, arabic sweets & the famous sweetened / colored almonds.

Christmas Plum Cake

Christmas Plum Cake

Some people make plum cakes look so simple! I stepped into my Aunt Joyce’s place to take a pic of her famous Bibinca..However since it was just  baked and crisply hot, it couldn’t be sliced for the much required layers. But fortunately for me, I didn’t go back disappointed as there were several other goodies already on display. I took a shot of the neatly iced Christmas Plum Cake with the cute marzipan snowman.

Melting Moments

Melting Moments

This is a recipe inspired from Ms. Julia Taylor: Contestant at the Masterchef Australia 2012 series. The cookies are typical sweet and crusty that melt as soon as popped in. Makes for good tea time biscuits, can be even mixed with jam, marmalade or fresh cream.

Marzipan Ornaments

Colored Marzipan

Good morning guys! Sorry if I was a bit shaky in this photograph..yesterday I was carrying an overloaded knapsack on my way home and stopped to remove loose change from it at the bakery. When I swung (not sure if I swung makeself or the bag now), I sprained my back muscles a bit…or maybe too much not sure. Lol! I could barely bend or sleep last night, and I seemed to need a stand support while taking the picture, instead of the camera…guess I won’t be able to enjoy walking tonight 😦

Anyways, something about the picture: Its simple nut-flavored (70% almonds, 30% cashews) marzipan, formed and colored in various moulds. Since they are quite sticky to touch, icing sugar had to be dusted over it most of the time. Its already the 19th, and there’s still a lot more to prepare – including cakes, truffles and toffee! Will keep you posted.
