My secret Santa got me some 4-inch chiffon cake molds, and ever since I have used them to bake my cakes. Compared to a 6-inch cake, 4-inch cake is perfect for two people.

It is Ethan’s birthday, so instead of buying a cake from a bakery, I decided to make him a small surprise – Matcha Lava Chiffon Cake! The cheese foam in the centre will ooze out and create a beautiful and fancy lava effect.Continue reading “[RECIPE] Matcha Lava Chiffon Cake”

- I really enjoyed my first visit with my coworkers.
- This is opened by David Hawksworth, who also owns my most favourite restaurant in Vancouver, Hawksworth Restaurant.
- We saw roasted bone marrow on the menu!
Right across the Boiling Point in Richmond, there is a new-ish bubble tea shop, Bobii Frutii. It is originated from Taiwan and, this is the first Canadian store. They specializes in photogenic bubble tea with no preservatives, stabilizers, or artificial coloring. In addition, all drinks are served with their signature pearls, original, brown sugar, or butterfly pea flavour.
