Very blessed to have three Creative Baking books with Marshall Cavendish in the pipeline! It was really a great privilege to work with the pros and a very good learning experience!


The first is a Creative Chiffon Cakes book, which has a cute collection of chiffon cupcakes/pops, multi-colored chiffon cakes, patterned chiffon cakes, hidden chiffon cakes and shaped chiffon cakes!
I'll be the main author of this book, sharing more on the big chiffon cakes.

The second is a Creative Macarons book with lots of cute creative macarons by Phay Shing. Do look forward to her updates! =)
Here are some photos and details to share for the Creative macarons photoshoot and book :).

Here are some sneak peeks into the Photoshoots for the Creative Chiffon Cakes book!

Photoshoot 3: Decorated, Patterned, Hidden and Shaped chiffon cakes!


Photoshoot 2: Multi-colored Chiffon Cakes! Rainbow, ombre, dual-colored etc.


Photoshoot 1: Chiffon Cupcakes/Cake pops!


All photo credits and styling to the talented people at Marshall Cavendish!

The book is not all about pretty pictures, but it is a Recipe book with detailed picture tutorials covering the Basics as well as for each recipe. It will also cover Tips for getting the fluffiest, prettiest chiffon cakes as well as a Troubleshooting section.

We like to thank Phoon Huat and Chew's eggs for their generous sponsorship of the ingredients for the book! I absolutely love the quality of the Redman castor sugar and flour! And I only trust Chew's fresh eggs for the shiny meringue of my creative chiffon cakes!



Creative Baking: Chiffon Cakes will be out at Kinokuniya, Times and bigger Popular stores in Jan 2016. Really thank God and the team again!

With lots of love,
Susanne

Updates (May 2016)
Here's featuring wonderful bakers who have tried out the recipes in the book and made their chiffon cakes so beautifully!




(10/8/16) My Rainbow Chiffon Cake is trending! Even Polar has started introducing it into their range. Why don't you try it too? =)

    1. Thanks Joyz for your support! Sorry the preorder is mainly for friends residing in Singapore. It should be available in a few months online from amazon and book depository etc. I've actually have another 2 friends from Australia interested. Perhaps I'll ask the editor and get back to you where it can be found there? Thank you!

    1. I use wilton colour gel. As it's very concentrated, usually people just dip a toothpick in it to and then use it to stir into the batter. The pics in the book should help you =) thx!

  16. Hi Susanne, Just bought your book and am very excited about trying them out! For the six flavour rainbow hearts cake, for the strawberry puree & paste, orange & lemon paste, do you make them or buy them from shops? Blueberry powder & extract I suppose is from the shops. Your creations are so amazing!

    2. May I know how to make strawberry puree?

    3. Just mash some strawberries a sieve or pop some into a blender (but you may have to add some juice as it may be too dry to blend). I use the sieve method. Thanks
