Snowy Strawberry Choco Chiffon Cake

Strawberry cakes had always been my favorite. But it wasn’t until I watched KBS World’s Return of Superman did my fascination to make one from scratch started. I’m honestly impressed with the way Choo Sunghoon (Sarang’s dad) would make freshly handmade whipping cream.

Drama Review: Learning from the Baker King

One of the most memorable Korean drama that I’ve watched was Baker King. When it was aired on a late night slot by GMA-7 late last year, I was really captivated.

It’s a Leche Flan…

Aarrgh! I found myself laughing out loud when one of my friends mistook the Leche flan (egg custard) I made the other week as something else.
