  1. Hi

    I prefer your earlier postings where u share more of your experiences rather than just posting the recipe. Since your blog is title tested and tasted, it would be great if u could grade the product at a scale of 1 to 10 and describe more about the taste.
    I'm tempted to try a few of your recipes and I think you are as adventurous as me when trying out others recipes! Great blog anyway!


  2. Hi Lalaland,

    Thank you for the feedback.

    My English proficiency is not that good and that is why I usually do not elaborate much my experiences.

    The title ‘tested and tasted’ is chosen for the simple reasons that I have myself have tested and tasted in the kitchen.

    I started this baking blog purely to seek continuous improvements in my culinary skills and obtaining recipe advice from others who share the similar interests.

    Once again, much appreciated and please always feel to visit my blog and provide comments ;)

  4. Hello MamaFami,

  5. Hi DG, I just bake a batch of this and waiting for it to cool. But my cupcakes sink terribly. Does that happens to yours?

    1. Hi,

      Yes, it was slightly sink (as you may notice it thru the above pictures) :) If it sink quite much, it may because your oven too hot, maybe next time you may reduce the temperature.
