Gluten-Free Orange & Cranberry Cookies

A couple of friends have been asking if I’d be doing cookies for Chinese New Year. I don’t know why but … I don’t like making cookies. However, for some strange reason today, I felt like making a batch of gluten-free cookies. I’ve got lots of oranges and dried cranberries lying around so I got around making another bake that’s quite suited for the Chinese New Year season.

Cointreau Bundt Cake with Nutella Swirls

Okay, so those of you who have been waiting with bated breath as to what the boozy Chinese New Year special is … it’s THIS.

Obviously, with mandarin oranges being THE FRUIT of the season, this would have to be orange-related. So this cake is a Cointreau-soaked work of wonder with Nutella swirls and orange peel bits in it.

Mini Orange Bundt Cakes with Cream Cheese Stuffing

Initially, the plan was to introduce these lovely gems at a pop-up at the end of this month. Unfortunately, it seems like I can’t because you need a proper commercial food vendor license to sell in a public space. Right now, I can only make and sell from home.

Red Velvet Crepe Cake

So I was up for a challenge today and I wanted to make something … different.

The prettiness of it all comes through when you slice the cake.

Flourless Carrot Cake

Her dad, Uncle Vincent, wanted to order a cake for her and he asked me to make something that she would like. At that time, Vanessa was doing personal training with Simon and was watching her carb intake. So, ever the “supportive” friend (haha!), I decided to try my hands on a making a flourless cake.

Orange Meringue Pie

Sunkist oranges were on sale at Cold Storage last week. After the Chocolate Cake with Orange Buttercream, I still had a couple left over so I decided to finish up the remaining oranges by making an orange meringue pie today.

If, like me, you don’t quite like the tartness of lemon meringue pie, this pie will win you over with its sweet, citrusy notes. It tastes like Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s Sunrise Ice Blended but in a pie!
