After a break from testing pastries in Paris I’m back in the game! A week ago I checked out the bar Les Heures inside the palace hotel Prince de Galles. The bar is the “casual” dining place of the hotel and where the afternoon tea happens. I took the “French tea time / thé a la française” which consists of a hot drink, a pastry of choice and a selection of cakes for €32. Read more…

I’m not even sure what school week we are in. I tried to count, and apparently it’s week 10 already Ö … Somehow time flies very very hard and I lost track of everything that’s been happening. I even forgot to take pictures of some things. But now I gathered all the photo’s I have, so this post is for me to keep track too.
We did viennoiserie, choux and entremet and a week of random things like croissant d’amande, polonaise and some things I forgot and don’t have pictures of. (not worth memorizing I think)
It’s been a while. A lot has happened since my last post in May. From May to July I had to focus on my last period of university. Oh well at least I graduated from the Delft University of Technology for my Bachelor of Science Industrial Design Engineering! Hurrayy Read more…
I don’t regularly eat and make cupcakes as I don’t like buttercream frostings. But for this occasion I made cupcakes! My way. This is a super chocolat-y chocolate cupcake with pieces of chocolate inside, chocolate ganache and chocolate easter eggs on top. Yes, I like chocolate.
I wanted mousse, coffee mousse, so I made it. I found a recipe online that looked awesome, so I tried it. The mousse was very nice and I really enjoyed eating it. The only downside of making this is that you have to be somewhat patient, but it was worth it! So do try.
I was craving scones for a long time, for months.. or years. I don’t know why I have not made them earlier?! They are so damn easy. I always thought they were difficult, like croissant difficulty. So recently around midnight, I just wanted to eat them so badly. I looked for recipes online and found one that had been made by over 600 people. I decided that I was going to make them the next morning. And I did.
Okay, I was happy with the previous mug cake recipe I put on here. But oh boy, I will probably never make that again! This new recipe needs 5 ingredients less than that one and is way less messy. These cakes are yummy. I have made 9 of these mug cakes in 5 days, which is a lot, I know. I didn’t eat them all. I swear.
Swiss roll cakes are very common in chinese bakeries, but I don’t like those most of the time. The cake is plain cake and the filling is butter cream. I’m not a fan of butter cream, I think it ‘s too heavy. Other than in chinese bakeries, I don’t see swiss rolls in stores or bakeries here.
