Caramel Cafe Noix

Well, I made this cake 2 weeks ago & I should have updated the blog last week.
But I just couldn't get in the mood to write.
I get overwhelmed with my thoughts lately, mainly because I'm stress about my work.
A lot of tasks to be completed, experiments to be carried out, parties to attend, cakes to be baked…

Back to my obsession with cake & caramel.
Yes, another caramel entremets.
This cake has coffee genoise as a base, caramel coffee mousse & crunchy caramel hazelnuts.
The bitterness of coffee blended well with the sweet & rich caramel flavour, finally with the nutty crunchy hazelnuts.
A lovely combination of different textures & flavours.

Be Jenny's Guest at Le Cordon Bleu

This post isn't about me, it's about my sister, Jenny.
I was invited to be her guest to the afternoon tea party at Le Cordon Bleu in London.
A place where she has trainings to become a superb patisserie one day.
On that special day, I went to Le Cordon Bleu with my mum & brother just for the tea party.
Indulgent entremets, lovely pastries & freshly baked scones with home-made jam & clotted cream were offered, along with a selection of teas.
Apart from enjoying the cakes, I had also taken some photos showcasing those pretty cakes made by the students on the day.
