Christmas Yule Log

Big apology to my dear blogger relatives and friends, have a very tight month and I know this wasn't the Yule Log that I expect it to look, it should be way better but luckily I did manage to make the cake satisfying to the last bite... at least from the young ones and old ones.
It's a brandy white chocolate Swiss me it's smooth texture of the creamy fragrant taste and feeling is really satisfying. Finished topped with chocolate ganache which wasn't sweet but just creamy enough to blend in with everything.

It's for you to taste and find out yourself, it might not be your taste but since this is purely homemade, fresh and satisfying till the last bite. Wasn't a very good shot because it's taken very late and my lighting was totally out. At least there is a virtual cake to view. Do leave some comments on ideas or critics in order for me to improve better....

Sugee Cake

There is a delectable range of Sugee Cake available in the market or should say it depends on some family tradition to pass down this recipe especially it runs down in certain Eurasian family will know what it taste like. To me, like my husband once said, "I don't know what is it so nice about this classic cake which have such high price people would pay to have a taste of this'' or mostly a favourite among classic English wedding.

To me, I'm not a fan of sweet stuff or dessert in particular but those who really know this cake might want to leave me some comment. All I know is the amount of ground almond which not many people like if to choose from the range of nuts but who know this nut well will like this, not too sweet, just moist enough but the grainy texture which you have to taste it slowly, might make this cake special...
