Philosophy of Yum Blog
My philosophy is yumminess. I am devoted to achieving the highest possible YUM factor in everything I cook & bake.
I don’t care if it takes double the effort because I essentially live from one “YUM high” to the next… You know, those foods & desserts that make you weep!
When I’m not looking for a “YUM high”, I am busy creating one 🙂
I share my secret baking methods, exclusive recipes from my bakery (Philosophy of Yum) and my food adventures as a baker in Cape Town, South Africa.
These Pear, Apple & Blueberry muffins are so light, tender and moist! The crunchy cinnamon sugar crust on top pairs perfectly with the muffin's soft crumb underneath. And the bursts of fresh, dark blue-purple blueberries throughout the muffins just makes you swoon!
The texture of these chocolate cupcakes is very moist, soft and creamy. And the flavour is SUPER chocolatey! The smooth chocolate ganache, slightly tangy chocolate frosting and pure dark chocolate shavings round off an indulgent texture and flavour experience. I didn’t think I would share one of my best recipes this soon, but here it is…
My super classified (until now) Philosophy of Yum Chocolate Frosting recipe. I have made it 1000’s of times, refined it and perfected it in my 5 years of full time baking. It is so flipping DELICIOUS that it makes you giggle, squirm and dance from the deliciousness!
Make your own luscious chocolate shavings in 5 minutes! I use this method DAILY for giving my bakes a professional edge. With these chocolate shavings I decorate cakes, cupcakes, tarts… anything really. Minimum effort for maximum results. Nice!
Hi! I’m Aurelia 🙂 I live in the most beautiful city – Cape Town, South Africa. I studied architecture, but I’ve been a professional home baker for 4 and a half years. All recipes here are originals from my bakery.
I love my hubby, puns, singing in harmonies, my cat, butternut and doughnuts!
