Joining Online Bake Sale for Japan

I picked up some puff pastry on my way back after college.
I thought it'll be very handy if I'd like some desserts sometimes.
I baked an apple tarte tatin later in the week, it's simple yet making a great dessert that night.

Coconut Soufflé Cheesecake with Caramel Pineapples

Spring has sprung & the winter has finally gone.
The sky was blue & the sun was bright while I was writing.
Sadly I didn't go outdoors but to bake in the kitchen.
After I baked a coconut soufflé cheesecake, I felt like something was missing.
I scanned through my recipe library for ideas & decided to make caramel pineapple to accompany the cheesecake.
It matches perfectly as coconut & pineapple always go together & the tropical flavours are the tastes for the summer to come :)

Poached Pear Mousse Cake ~酒香迷梨~

My mum's birthday was on Saturday, so I took a trip to Basildon after work & made her a birthday cake.
I thought cheesecake is too simple so I took on a challenge to design a cake themed 'Red Wine'
As I'm craving for pears recently, red wine poached pears seem to be a perfect idea so I did on Friday night & made a mousse cake the other day.
The result... I wasn't totally satisfied by the look but I definitely love the taste.
I always have more fun in making petit cakes then a big one, plus I find the giants are difficult to decorate.
