Lyndey Milan Baking Product Launch|Blueprint Potts Point

Posted on Updated on

For over 25 years Lyndey Milan has a trademark style of summer baking and what a perfect way to share her exciting secrets on the Lyndey Milan’s Summer Baking Secrets on Channel 7. Lyndey’s six week delicious adventures begin with mouth-watering baked goods, all which can be easily re-created at the heart of your own kitchen, then comes with a fair few of time-saving tips, baking secrets, and her personal insights. Not only does she make the most simple recipes look heavenly rewarding but so does her first-ever bakeware range, the culmination of 30 year’s experience and a two-year collaboration with Margaret Butler, founder of Anasazi.

You’d want a slice or maybe the whole cake in your stomach as the chocolate naked cake is filled with outer layer of buttercream. It’s not your traditional cake as it has a colourful texture of smooth creamy chocolate cream and oh the fresh flowers and leaves adds a nice floral surprise.

The Mexicans are in town with these adorable child size jalapeno mini muffins. These sweet, crumbly muffins are unbelievably easy to finish and might I say would be perfect compliment to any soup. I didn’t have portion control for this as it was a nice spicy kick to my tastebuds.

With the success of Summer Baking Secrets Tv Series, it’s only right for Lyndey to release her first-ever bakeware range. If you’ve been secretly watching Lyndey Milan’s top tips about baking and easy peasy recipes then you would have easily noticed her bakeware ranges. It’s hard to forget where you’ve placed each piece of these products as there’s a variety of  modern cream ceramic-coated tinware, new-age silicone bakewareclever double seal storage containers and let’s not forget Lyndey’s signature hot-pink baking accessories.

The TV series is based around Lyndey’s collection as it brings the best out of every home cook even if you’re clueless about cooking. It’s definitely your bake range heroes. All Lyndey’s Bake Range is available to purchase in store from Blueprint Retail in Potts Point. Better get those silicon heart shaped chocolate mold, it’s too sweet to resist in your kitchen.

Lyndey Milan Baking Product Launch_Nessy Eater (16)Now I need this and this and that in my kitchen. OH AND that knife as well 😀

If you’re a cheesecake fan then you’d wouldn’t want to miss out on this. It is dainty and light topped with honeycomb caramel crumbles.

Now now before I start telling myself I need to control my sugar diet these orange and lime marmalade trifle filled in a cup screams summer more than a bright citrusy dessert.

Now if you don’t like eating veggies then why not hide them in a cake? The gluten-free carrot and zucchini slab cake knows how to disguise it’s healthy looks and taste. There’s a great scent of ground cinnamon and orange grind. By the way you wouldn’t miss it for the world that lemon icing and to garnish the toasted fragrant of sunflower, pumpkin seeds and pine nut mix.

Who needs assistance to eat the simple chocolate fudge cake topped with fresh rasphberries when you can certainly have it all to yourself. This cake is delicious on its own but even better topped fresh pieces of rasphberries. This might be one of the most heavenly bakes to devour and with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream on the side, it would be 110% perfect.

This extraordinary dessert, made Simon from SimonFoodFavourites eye on it for an hour at least before it was time to cut. Made with crisp hazelnut meringue and whipped cream then topped with fruit pieces, I had leverage over Simon. Teehee.

You’re my five spice plum and almond crumble pie. It contains a rich taste and that hit of salt balances out the sweetness of the stone fruit with some luscious plums in between.

Like Lyndey’s vibrant personality, it’s only right her collection is warm and inviting with each baking piece featuring her recipes. With inspirations from her friends and family, she explains it’s important we don’t waste our time washing and cleaning in the kitchen after a long days work cooking and baking, so every piece is dishwasher safe. For her silicone non-stick and the utensils have eco friendly, sustainably sourced bamboo handles.

With all the flavor of a traditional tomato pie, these tiny tarts was a big hit at the party. It was a lovely stylish starter and an appetising savoury. Made with ripe cherry tomatoes and fragrant herbs, this tart is both delicious and beautiful.

Blue Print Event (1 of 1) - ResizeSuch a pleasure to finally meet Lyndey Milan 

It was a fun floral high tea filled with gorgeous fresh flowers all scattered around the cakes and mini tarts. I just couldn’t quite point out which slice of cake I heart the most, but I do know I wanted it all to myself. It was lovely to finally meet a Lyndey as well a few surprise guests like Jackie M and Tetsuya Wakuda. Till then keep baking more sweet treats!

Cake Bake and Sweets Show – Keep Calm & Bake On

Posted on Updated on

There are two types of people in this world: the kind that loves eating sweets and come back for seconds, and the kind that doesn’t really enjoy sweets as much as you do but more than willing to share their half of sweets because they know you’d appreciate it more than them. Which side do I stand? It doesn’t take a genius to figure this out. HAHA. Ok, fine, I LOVE SWEETS and I HEART RECEIVING SWEETS. You got me there! There was a lot of pressure for me to decide which show or shop I’d race off to first. I had a number of ideas and whether it was smart to bring one of those supermarket trolley like from Costco, just in case I couldn’t carry all my items that I planned or didn’t plan on purchasing. But I am happy to report the show gave FREE GOODIE BAGS once you walked into the other side of the entrance door. So the environmental bag was indeed very handy. What I’ve discovered about the show is that from 10am-6pm, there’s so much to see and do but so little time. Pretty, pretty please Cake Bake and Sweets Show I request for extended hours next time with sprinkles on top. 😀

LUCKY Amy from Milkteaxx received a cupcake rose from the whipped cream chef. Teehee. It’s definitely the best topping I’ve ever come across.

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (34)

Sadly Amy couldn’t taste how delicious this was because she was too busy taking a photo of my cupcake. Haha. Sorry Amy! I’ll make it up to you next time.

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (35)

Get your hands dirty with Cake Boss cupcake pipping classes.

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (36)

Amy placed her name for the rose pipping class at 12:30pm and unfortunately for me I wasn’t aware it was FREE CLASSES. But I was still keen to take quick snaps of what they were demonstrating. Moments later Woohoo for me someone didn’t show up and I was more than happy to take the spot.

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (37)

Prepared vanilla cupcakes. Each person had 4 cupcakes  to decorate and take home.

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (38)

You know I don’t bake as often as I should when I say…I never knew there is so many icing accessories.

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (39)

Yes, there were 4 cupcakes but these were the 2 best I made.

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (40)

WHATTTT I also didn’t know edible glitter exists. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (41)

The demonstrator mentioned to sprinkle a little bit of glitter but I ignored her and sprinkled 5 times more than I should of. You can’t blame be for being excited over edible glitter. EDIBLE GLITTER.

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (42)

Cake Boss also offered flower decoration classes but those were fully booked within 30 minutes of opening the show.

Strangely feel this could be me one day…Married to all things sweet.

Just because I’ve been to Anna Polyviou’s first dessert degustation at Sydney’s Shangri-La Hotel here and then again when she turned Asian for Luxbite Bernard Chu here doesn’t mean I can’t take another photo with her. There’s something about me and Anna. You see we kept bumping into each other throughout the entire show. I might as well have followed her like a puppy and be her assistant the whole day. Teehee.

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (45)

Spotted Shangri-La hotel Sydney Executive Pastry Chef Anna Polyviou 

It’s hard to not recognise Australia’s patissier and answer to Willy Wonka , as evidenced by his pastry creations Redskin, Mont Blanc and Salted Butter Popcorn Macarons. Also not to mention torturer of MasterChef contestants. Adriano Zumbo whose eccentric imagination and magical patisserie playground underlines the concept of  sweet factory of fun. His first sweet empire started in Balmain in 2007 and now has expanded to five stores including the latest one in QVB, Sydney. It was such an honor to meet Adriano and have a quick interview with him right after he shared his fantastic demonstration of Amazing Macaron Creation.

The only question I asked in this interview was “What is your favourite macaron?”. Whilst smiling he replied “Salted Caramel and Passionfruit” . I was extremely lucky to chat with him for a few minutes before this dessert king heads off to the crowded fans. If you’re into whimsical treats that will blow your mind (and tastebuds) then Adriano Zumbo Patisserie is the right place to be. His macarons and cakes will give you Willy Wonka’s wet dream and it is something you’d want to experience.

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (47)

So apparently I witnessed Dan Lepard and Adriano Zumbo first time meeting each other. LOL.

Right after Adriano finished demonstrating this Amazing Macaron Creation, you never guess who had the opportunity to eat this scrumdiddilyumpshus dessert. Well, technically I just ate a quarter of it from a lovely lady who was hand-picked by Adriano to have this dish. It was just freaking perfect, though presentation may of slightly lacked but it taste just as good.

Le Cordon Bleu earned its reputation as the ultimate in hospitality, cuisine and patisserie training. If Andre Sandison has taught me one thing, it’s that you genuinely have to have the passion with the ingredients you use to form a  magnificent piece of art.

This unique sugar lollipop made me go bananas as I felt like a kid all over again.

I got on really well with Karman from Le Cordon Bleu , and even though we chatted for a brief moment I felt like I was swept off my feet by a talented stranger. She tells me her Paris adventures and that she has only been with Le Cordon Bleu for 8 months and enjoys every single moment of it. Though the hours are ridiculous (6 days of training and 1 rest day) but it is her number one dream and she will do whatever it takes to fulfill it.

All the way from USA Taryn Mumpower and Robyn Holt are two gorgeously talented baketenders and stars of Cupcake Wars . Famous for their ALCOHOL infused CUPCAKES, they both make up a saucy duo. Their cupcake motto is NO BAKING BORING CUPCAKESIf you are ever feeling the need for something quirky in your cupcake then head over to Pick Your Poison Bake Shop because it is the perfect exquisite little cupcake-baking machine. But that’s only if you are in Austin, Texas.

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (73)

Taryn Mumpower couldn’t help pipping cream cheese frost into this guys mouth.

Taryn Mumpower and Robyn Holt mentioned on a good day they sell over 300 cupcakes a night from 5pm-1am. The key difference about marketing these cupcakes is that they are sold next door to a bar. And Robyn said “Texas people love cupcakes after having a drink or two”. It is quite interesting to hear Texas people much prefer cupcakes as a midnight snack whereas Sydney people choose hot dogs and pies. But I guess it’s no surprise for Taryn as she isn’t afraid to admit she was born and raised in Las Vegas and that “Americans love their alcohol”.

It’s Pick Your Poison Taryn Mumpower and Robyn Holt. 

Duff Goldman is a creative international pastry chef, Sydney has been hunting for! He is a pure artist in the department of all things sweet. He founded and owns Baltimore’s Charm City Cakes bakery and stars in the hit TV show Ace of Cakes. His extraordinary cake creations includes Star Wars, a replica of Stanley Cup, to LIFE SIZE Hogwarts Castle for the premiere of Harry Potter. He mentions he has created one exquisite cake for Oprah and President Obama’s Ball. On a personal level he mentioned his first tattoo he ever got is Little Prince because his mummy use to always read to him in French before bed time. Ngawwwww so touching.

Cartoony Cheeseburger and Fries Stunt Cake by Duff Goldman.

Duff Goldman knows how to impress the audience with his facial expression.

I think my eyes and taste buds orgasmed more than a million times whilst watching Duff demonstrate his talent on stage. I feel like Duff has given me the opportunity to let me explore the dangerously naughty imagination of a cheeseburger and he doesn’t even know it. Things got serious when he started assembling the burger. But panic escalated quickly when this GIGANTIC cheeseburger was slowly taken away right after the show.

This is a sexually explicit photo of a HUMONGOUS Cheeseburger. You must be old enough to understand it. 😛

Duff Goldman finally signed one of his fans baking tin as requested on his Twitter account. But Eric Lanlard signed it first.

What’s in the goodie bag?…

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (83)

My hand feels rather massive…but who cares! I scored myself FREE mini size Bonne Maman gourmet jam jars.

I mentioned earlier I participated in rose popping classes at Cake Boss site, well whoever attended and enjoyed any of their classes received a FREE CAKE BOSS GOODIE BAG! Surprisingly this bag contains more than what I imagined. I think this bag of goodies is value of $60+.

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (84)

Fast forward a few hours and it’s near the end of the Cake Bake and Sweets Show, DAY 3. Arriving fashionably late to the event due to work, my first stop was Anne Polyviou “Berry Me in Cheese” Push Pops demonstration. And look who do we have here… Adriano Zumbo enjoying FAIRY FLOSS !!! When life becomes too stressful for the dessert king, twirl some candy floss.

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (85)

Besides macarons, Adriano does like a little pink in his life.

Before Anna ended her show, she was so generous to giveaway one PINK KitchenAid Stand Mixer valued at $650+. All contestants had to do was simply tell Anna and the audience how to make “Berry Me in Cheese” Push Pops.

Cake Bake and Sweet Show_Nessy Eater (86)

Winner!

I’ve had a pretty rollicking start to day 3 when I received “Berry Me in Cheese” Push Pops. This beauty contains 4 layers. From the bottom strawberry jelly, then cream cheese mix that includes Heilala Vanilla, cream cheese, sugaregg and what for it…Callebaut white chocolate. I’ve also discovered crumbed digestive biscuits and then fresh berries. To add the final touch, fairy floss is chosen to complete this pink madness.

In between Anna’s show, I was star struck again and this time all the way from Melbourne, the super sweet couple Bernard Chu and Yen Yee from Luxbite. It was perfect timing to bump into them as I had just arrived and they were about to go. When Bernard dashed right passed me, my brain had froze and I blurted out “Hi Bernard” and he quickly looked over his shoulder and replied “Hi”. But what was most unforgettable moment for me was he directly looked at me and walked back towards where I was standing, stops right in front of me and said “I know you…You’re that food blogger, Nessy Eater…yeah Nessy Eater“. Secretly overwhelmed that Bernard, who was seen on MasterChef because of his bizarre idea of combining old-school lolly favourites into one spectacular 7 layer cake and Yen remembers Nessy Eater is such an AMAZING feeling. Sorry for being so cheesy! I am certainly over the moon Bernard Chu, a Pastry chef at LuxBite notices Nessy Eater. And before the two left to venture around Sydney, Bernard decided to take a photo for Instagram. You guys SERIOUSLY rock. THANK YOU BERNARD AND YEN ! 😀 You can read my review on Luxbite here.

Award winning sugar artist and craftsy instructor is Sheryl Bito. She is truly a sweet, lovely lady and so happy to finally meet her in person. She is the owner and founder of Buns in the Oven Cupcakery in Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia. Sheryl’s style is often described as sweet and wonderful. She is known for her miniature cake topper and I have found she loves her job as she pays so much attention to detail.

Cake Bake and Sweets Show was almost over and what better way to end it with Eric Lanlard making delicious Salted Butter Caramel Chocolate Cake and maybe perhaps have a Tim Tam in between his baking.

Bye bye Eric Lanlard.

80 hours of sugar decoration and Eric Lanlard smashed all 3 winners art work (Andre SandisonDean Gibson and John Ralley) into pieces. It only took 1 minute to destroy it all. I mentally cried inside… but the good news was we were invited afterwards to all grab a few pieces to take home.

80 hours of sugar decoration, DESTROYED!

Last one standing was Andre Sandison chocolate art.

The only piece of chocolate I had from Andre Sandison chocolate art.

Finding excuses to see Adriano Zumbo, Eric Lanlard and Anna Polyviou one more time was difficult. Taking a photo with them the second time with my previous photo I took with them on the first day was just so awkwardly embarrassing but sooooo FREAKEN WORTH IT! Besides signing books or zumbarons rectangular white boxes, I wanted something much MUCH more fun and also to decorate my plain wall. Chances of me being rejected for asking an autograph were a high 90’s because humans around me started to increase. Thankfully with my stalker eyes I managed to tap Adriano Zumbo, Eric Lanlard and Anna Polyviou on the shoulder and kindly asked for their priceless autograph. WINNING! I feel all giddy inside. THANK GOODIES they didn’t reject me. Tee-hee.

To some up about Cake Bake and Sweets Show for 2014 in Sydney, I think it has definitely impressed me. With so many demonstrations happening at the same hour, I just wish their were 10 of me. It is easy to forget time when you are having so much fun. That crazy love affair with baked sweets sends me to another universe and I anxiously wait for next time.
