Some pictures. .

Here are some pictures from the food showcase organised by the Brustralia I took part in today. Seriously, my Casio digital cam works so much better in the outdoors!

Orange Cranberry Macadamia Cookies. (I buy all my nuts pre-shelled and macadamias are amongst one of the toughest nuts to crack!)

Hazelnut Overload Cookies. (These are made with hazelnuts I pound with a pestle and mortar and sandwiched with a Nutella and bitter chocolate ganache).

Dark Sin Cookies (made from 3 kinds of premium chocolate and spiked with cayenne pepper).

Seriously Cake

After a long break of not doing cake (2 years), I finally returned to doing them. Nope, these aren't currently for sale as I'm currently am experimenting with flavours and hoping to come up with a menu list in the near future. Also, my cake decorating skills (or lack of) still leaves much to be desired. But what it lacks in looks, it makes up in taste. I'm not a big fan of the cakes you get in the bakeries outside - (calling a cake tiramisu when it isn't gets my goat each time!)

Lemon Coconut Cake with Lemon Curd Frosting

Dark Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Buttercream (I'm normally not a fan of buttercream but as this is the cooked kind, it aint too bad)

Ordering Guide.

You may contact me at 8987148 - SMS preferred :), and you may pick up the cookies in any convenient location around Gadong, Bandar or Kiulap. Around Jubilee Hotel is the most preferred.

5 days notice is essential, as I'm holding a full-time job and will require time to assemble the cookies, particularly the gourmet ones.

Thanks! :)

The Background Story.

Seriously Cookies was started because of my penchant for delicious cookies. I love to create sweet things but my focus has always been on cookies. It was also started as an alternative to the dreadful mass market sub-standard cookies that are on sale out there. My Cookies are baked in the soft and chewy tradition (unless otherwise stated) and using the highest grade ingredients like 100% pure butter (never planta or margerine), organic oats, organic unrefined sugars, quality Swiss chocolates and the freshest nuts. And I never skimp on ingredients which justifies the slightly higher than normal price tag. You will get a mouthful of goodness in every bite! :)
Seriously Cookies. Life's too short. Eat a real cookie :)
