Devil Chocolate Cakes with Salted Caramel

Hi all, an update after so long.
Time seems to fly, I started working last summer & was thinking I would get into baking soon.
Obviously this didn't happen as you can see there hadn't any update until now.
Hopefully, I will bake more often from now.

To get myself back to baking, I started with my all time favourite, salted caramel cupcakes.
After making caramel & frosting, I realised I didn't have a muffin tray but loose-base mini cake pan I've bought from Lakeland for a long time.
The chocolate batter is not the best for this mini cakes as it's not firm enough, but divinely rich & moist.
Very pleased with it after all.

Zipper Pouch with Cross Stitched Flowers

Not food & baking this time, when I first decided the blog’s name, I was thinking about updating with all the things I make.
When I started this blog, I made jewellery & I opened an online shop.
Then, I got obsessed with baking & many years with recipe updates here.
Now, I bought a second-hand sewing machine on eBay to start up a new pastime, don’t know how long my passion will be with sewing, time will tell.

Small zipper pouch 7" x 5".

I tried hand stitching a make-up bag sometimes ago, never tried using a sewing machine.
I always thought it’s too complicated to learn & use, so I bought a second hand one to try out.
It's a nice machine though, Husqvarna Viking Emerald 118, I got it at a bargain price.
There're tutorials on YouTube, nice for me to learn about the machine.
Also, there’re thousands of lessons and patterns online, for a beginner like me, it’s hard to decide which project to start with.
I decided to make a little pouch to hold some makeup so I can put it in my large tote bag.
The first sewing machine project came out nicely, I also cross stitched some flowers for it.
The tutorial is from Jedi craft girl, it’s easy to follow, it’s not hard to use a sewing machine after all.
I'm planning to sew a shopper bag for my next project.
Happy sewing!

Baked Tofu Cheesecake

Recipe update with a baked tofu cheesecake.
Simple yet delicious cheesecake to enjoy without feeling guilty.
It contains relatively less cream cheese and cream, so it’s healthier and lighter.
I drizzled some sweet osmanthus, it’s dried flowers if you don’t know.
It’s very popular in Asia either as herbal tea or as flavouring in baking and pastry.
I love it so I always stock a big bag in my kitchen.
If you don’t have it, you can add lemon zest instead, it’ll be great too.
