If I had to choose only one cake to eat


…the Black Forest, hands down, would be the winner.

Growing up with a mum as a pastry chef, I have been exposed to a wide variety of cakes from a young age. From the rich coffee liquor of the opera cake to contrast between bittersweet dark chocolate and tanginess of the apricot jam of the sachertorte, I have tried so many that brought my taste buds such delight. But for me, the black forest is the one that stands out from the crowd. With the tartness of the cherries cutting through the rich dark chocolate sponge, the perfect slice is delicately finished with freshly whipped cream. Goodness, just writing about this is bringing forth my sugar cravings!

Ice Cream


“It’s never too cold for ice cream” said a clever young girl and I may have to agree with her. Yesterday was National Ice Cream Day in the U.S but that shouldn’t stop us in the small town of Perth from celebrating with them. So if you have an ice cream machine at home, I strongly urge you to try out one of these recipes in celebration of National Ice Cream Day.



Hope you are all well, especially those in Perth who are experiencing rather chilly weather.
