Bake | Snap | Write
The three words above encapsulate (almost fully) what I’m all about.
Baking has always been my passion. The first time I was intrigued was when I was 9, and saw my mom whipping up cakes in the kitchen. The way the ingredients came together to create something so beautiful just amazed me. Today, that magic still happens, but when I see the look of joy on people’s faces when they try my treats. I had the privilege of spending a summer in Le Cordon Bleu Paris, where I was able to hone my skills in pastry making. I do intend to complete the other two courses after I graduate from University.
Snap. I wouldn’t say that I take fantastic photographs but being in pictures and taking pictures is something I have always enjoyed. Taking nice photographs will definitely help me capture special moments in the kitchen.
Write. I write part-time at an online magazine (Poached Mag) and realized that making people smile and think really warms my heart. To know that others appreciate what you’re doing (after all the hours you clogged writing) is really fulfilling.
I decided to start “Cake is the new black” to document my little moments in the kitchen. The phrase was thought of by my best friend Joyee, one random day while we were “studying”.
The link to fashion is intentional and I hope to bring that to my blog: writing about new dessert trends and being as bold and experimental as I can. And, perhaps inspire others to do the same.
