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!

Juwita Suwito's Album Launch - "For Real"

Triple Espresso Brownies

Listening/watching/experiencing someone exercise their passion is a joy! We count ourselves very blessed to be able to have sponsored Juwita's desserts for the launch of her new album. We also got to meet Jaclyn Victor of Malaysian Idol fame. Really bubbly personality and was really nice to chat with.

Do go out and buy Juwita's album.

Creme Caramel & Lemon Meringue

One of my favourite desserts, creme caramel, served individually in glasses. I love the bejewelled nature of the golden caramel and the majestic, rich, yellowness of the gently set egg custard.

Our Lemon Meringue is also available as a whole cake and we believe we've found the right balance of sweetness, lightness, and tartness. The pillowy billows of the meringue top the acidic foil of the lemon curd and is encrusted with a buttery sweet biscuit pate sucre.

Vintage Ferrari FI

Did this vintage Ferrari FI for a client. Delivered it ourselves. The most satisfying part of our work is watching the reaction of the clients and the kid. He kept on wanted to touch it and play with the 'car.' Understandable since he's only 1.

The Art and Craft of Doing What We Do - Boys in the kitchen

It takes a deft hand, talent, and many hours of practice to make it seem easy. ET, YM, and increasingly SY, make the cakes that we produce possible.

Allan is seen here painting the waves into butter icing. Everything on this cake is edible and we only use food colourings.

Wai Fun's Desserts

A friend of ours who makes the most gorgeous little canapes and finger foods ordered some desserts from us. Some mini Strawberry Pavlovas and Lemon Cheesecakes with a Passion Fruit Coulis. It's also her Grandad's birthday so we made this cake at her request.

Flourless Mandarin Cake & Baci Di Ricotta (Ricotta Kisses)

Had the opportunity to test our a Flourless Mandarin Cake since there were so many Mandarin Oranges lying around over Chinese New Year and also something called Baci Di Ricotta which I believe means Ricotta Kisses.

Both are courtesy of Nigella Lawson but as usual I cannot resist tweaking them to suit my tastebuds.

The Flourless Mandarin Cake can be adapted to an Orange cake (no brainer there) and obviously I've reduced the sugar. It's moist, light, tender and it has this great little bitter edge to it from the pith of the Mandarins. I'm going to try it with Oranges and in all likelihood it will end up on our menu as a tea cake. In other words, we will sell it in loaves with no icing on it.

The Baci on the other hand, needs to be eaten just about straight off the stove. It tastes just divine when it's eaten warm. Soft, pillowy, with a hint of rich egginess and replete with the warmth of cinnamon. I tweaked it for my tastebuds, but again, thank you Nigella.

Baci Di Ricotta (Ricotta Kisses)
- What could be better for tea than something that serves up kisses to eat? Love and tummy yums all in one!

200 g of Ricotta Cheese
2 eggs
75g cake flour (Nigella uses plain flour but I find cake flour gives it a tenderness that's appropriate)
1 ½ tsp of baking powder
Pinch of Salt (Be generous)
½ tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg (My addition - I love my spices)
1 Tbsp caster sugar
½ tsp vanilla (I tried it with Orange Flower Water as well or 2 tsps orange zest)
Vegetable oil for frying
2 tsps icing sugar to serve (If you don't have icing sugar, do what I did and whiz your caster sugar in a blender then sieve it...almost the same thing)

1. Break the eggs into the ricotta and whisk it until it’s smooth.
2. Mix in the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg vanilla and caster
sugar. Mix till smooth
3. Heat up the oil and drop in a small amount to check if its hot enough.
It should brown quite quickly. The funny thing is, if it's shaped well enough
when you drop it into the oil, it'll turn itself. ;-) But do watch it and
give it a hand if it doesn't. Don't do too many at once.
4. Drop in each one in teaspoon sizes. They will grow and inflate.
5. Stack them into a pyramid as in the piccy and sieve your icing sugar onto it
thickly. YUM!

Testing cupcakes

We had the opportunity to work with a rather prominent cafe in a prestigious shopping centre in town to create some exclusive cupcakes for them and them alone.

I can't mention them or show you the cupcakes from their collection. Suffice to say if you did see them, I do believe you'd recognise the sugar work. *hint*

Here are some of the designs which we didn't use. :-)
