Macaron Cheesecake, and Pleasing My Sweet Tooth in London.

 Freshly baked from oven...
 

I baked some cheesecakes last week, one specifically for a friend, Yusuf for his birthday. It has been such a long time since I baked my last cake, so this has proven to be a good re-start!

I posted these pictures on my FaceBook just after the birthday lunch with Yusuf, and to my surprise, quite a number of order requests soon flooded in. So, here we go! You can order your cheesecakes by visiting my Le Chouette Macaron FaceBook fan page! And to those who already got their cupcakes and cakes, thanks for your orders.

Speaking of cakes, I still can't forget the yummiest cupcakes I had in London during my last trip there in autumn. There was a day I where went to the Portobello street market to get some ornamental knick-knacks for my house, besides to meet up with my Malaysian friend Izuan, who's currently working in London. I had my brother tagging along, and Izuan introduced us to The Hummingbird Bakery.

I tried a few slices of their cakes and loved their Red Velvet cupcake the most. Naturally, I packed some to take home, too. Miam!!!

The night before that, I had a small birthday celebration for myself at Costa - just me and my brother. Having caffeine till late at night over some desserts from Harrods was such a simple, yet memorable celebration!

 Then, there was another day when we went to Soho for dinner, and had some yummy frozen yoghurt from Snog. I think Snog serves the best frozen yogurt with a great choice of condiments. I luv their shop - it's so chic!

Last but not least, to satisfy my sweet tooth, the mandatory gelato and ice cream - a standard feature on my travel itinerary! You can read my review of the best gelatos I had in Greece and Milan.

Anyway, my personal choice for London's best ice cream are those served at Thorntons at Covent Garden. The shop was just a few steps from London's Laduree.

And the best gelato mention goes to Oddono's Gelati, found at Oxford Street's Selfridges!
