We had a request from my good friend Jamilah and her friend, Zalina to conduct a personal macarons class on 16th September. Both are avid bakers and had no problem learning the intricate techniques involved in making the elusive macarons. We also had a team building macarons workshop on 12th September for 27 participants from Altera Corporation. Sorry that we forgot to take any pictures of the workshop due to time constrain as the participants were rushing to go for their lunch which they had pre-booked. Thanks guys and hope Altera Corp will have more corporate team building with us in future.

PG CakeCraft conducted a baking class for single mothers from the House of Hope on 6th September. This is the second time we collaborated with JCI Pearl, an NGO whose aim is to help and foster goodwill among the less unfortunate. The first time we worked with them was last year and we had a baking class for some very young ladies. We are happy to give some thing back to the society by helping the single mothers to equip themselves with some baking skills and earn a living from it. The participants were taught to bake our best selling Tiramisu Cheesecake, Moist Chocolate Cake and Chicken & Mushroom Pie. YB Kasthuri Pattoo was invited to officially launch the class and she also presented an oven to each of the 25 single mothers who attended the class.

Our Celebration Cakes class was held last week on the eve of our National Day. A good turnout of about 15 people who attended the class. Most of them were eager to to master the art of baking the ever popular retro pandan layer cake. There were were some gasp of astonishment cum anxiety coming from our students when the cakes were turned out from their moulds. A sigh of relief was heard in the pin drop silence when the cakes glided blissfully onto the cake board, coated in glistening pandan custard jelly.
Actually our recipe is fail proof and quite easy to make if the directions are adhered correctly. To get the sharp edges around the cakes is quite simple and no major techniques is needed to achieve it. So if you are interested to learn to bake this popular retro cake for your family and friends, then look no further and join our next class.
Pear and Walnut Loaf Cake
This class was requested by Ms Jo and her friends and they had a fun time making the jelly cakes. They found that the jelly cakes were quite easy to make if the recipes and techniques were followed to the T. The sunflowers, daisies and anthurium flowers were quite easy to make if the jelly is of correct consistency.
