Welcome to Just Heavenly's Blog

It's already 2009. When I last wrote this welcome message, I happily dated it 2010 to make it sticky. Stanley Kubrick's & Arthur C Clarke's vision of the future is almost in the past and we're refreshing this blog with a new look and a new attitude to reflect new challenges and new directions.
As you can see, the template has been refreshed and we've added a twitter bar for you to follow updates there and get to know us better, as well as our link to our Facebook profile.
In the past year, due to YOUR support, we've added a third outlet to the Just Heavenly family. And now, we're proud to be serving Petaling Jaya from our new hub there, A Slice of Heaven. Watch out for more to come.
To A Slice of Heaven in Jaya One - Coming Soon To Bangsar To Pleasures in Plaza Damansara PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE WHAT'S NEW!

Testing continues. We've found our white chocolate. Gosh, it was a chore. The cake above is close to what it will finally look like. Let's call this one, "final draft."

Had to hunt and research about what white chocolate is made of...learnt a lot though.

Learnt that not all White chocolate is created equal. Basically, the white chocolate in places like TMC, Giant, et al are very very inferior makes. They contain lecithin as stabilisers and other vegetable oils. Vanillin (vanilla to you and me) and NO cocoa butter which gives it that delicate white chocolate taste. Also, too much oil and you get this oily, filmy feel in your mouth.

The upshot is we had to settle for this White Chocolate from this supplier which is beaucoup expensive, but gives a GREAT white chocolate flavour...especially when mixed with a citrus or fruit liqeur.

Now that we've figured out the alcoholic one, we've got to see what we can do with a NON-alcoholic version which will probably be the default one offered. Thinking Orange or lemon zest or a combination of the two. Yum!

POSSIBLE name of the new Cake - RESURRECTION! The sequel to the DEATH BY CHOCOLATE!

Testing Testing - White Chocolate cakes & desserts

We're in the throes of testing what we can do with White Chocolate.

White Chocolate Mousses, Cheesecakes, Rich, sinful, White Chocolate Cakes layered with Dark Chocolate. You name it, we're having a look at the gamut of things that we can do with White Chocolate.

One recipe calls for Tuaca! What's THAT? (Turns out its an "Italian liqueur flavored with vanilla and citrus").

Anyway, stay tuned. We'll share our findings with all of you soon enough! ;-)
