Back then when I haven’t pick up baking as my hobby, I thought making bread or bun is one of the toughest and time consuming task to do. After getting to know more about baking, making bread was never hard to make at all, it need the least attention to make I suppose. Unlike my other baking such as macaron, I need to constantly checking if it is in the right texture and you need to be super accurate. Now making bread has become one of my daily routine, now my family rarely buy bread from outside. I really should thank to my friend who gave me a bread maker for Christmas present.

I recently bought some recipe book online, and my new favourite is making tart. Even though my family preferred savoury tart over sweet tart but I just love to make pretty sweet tart and decorate them. So I was on my usual routine at home, I finished dinner around 7 and then I start playing in the kitchen (seriously when I said play I do treat it like my little playground).
I had a pasta machine at home quite a while ago which my dad usually uses it to making dumpling pastry. This is probably the first time we use it for pasta purpose, as I never thought of making my own while it so cheap and easy to get from super market. But now I don’t think I would like the one from supermarket anymore, homemade fresh pasta taste a million time better than those from store. I’m not joking at all, the texture is more firm and tender texture and also more chewy as well. To be honest, it is the first time I ever made pasta from scratch, it might seem a bit too much work on it but it is totally worth it.

Scone has always been one of most frequent recipe I baked very now and then as breakfast or afternoon tea. Even since I was young, I always love scone so much and whenever I went to different hotel or café for High Tea (or should call Afternoon Tea as per British), all I want from is the soft fluffy scone with lot of jam and cream on top. However, it not easy to found good scone, since it is best when they freshly bake and serve it warm.

I always want to make this famous Lady M signature Mille Crêpes Cake, which is claimed to be this best cake in New York. Well I haven't had a chance to go New York to try this cake but luckily I found couple of the recipe showing how to make it. Now after I finish all of my exam and have more free time on time, so I decide to make this cake for Mother’s Day as my mum don’t like cake being too sweet.
