Which cake to choose for the birthday party?
First avoid if you can the cheap one from the supermarket, if the one you destine the cake for is a gourmet, get him a descent cake, there’s nothing worse than an impersonalized cake from the grocery store. It may give the impression than you forgot about it, and grab the last one left on shelf. A cheap cake or cheap present will just show how you estimate your guest, it is rude.

I’m not there should I send a cake ?
I want you not your present!
Well, most of complain we received are when the sender is not there and ask for delivery. If you have been invited to a birthday party it’s because the individual want to see you.
One of the worst case I have seen was when a man send to her lover a birthday cake, he was away, oversea trips so I though would be a good idea to send to the girl her favorite cake for her birthday, it turned into complete disaster. first her mother forgot the cake outside and let it melt, so when she came back from work it was all melted, the boy friend call me and ask for immediate replacement at 7 pm otherwise I will get a bad review, when I reach the girl was in tears, not because of the cake, because she was alone to eat it.
How can someone be so indelicate and insensible? she had no one to share the cake with, it did make her feel more lonely and abandoned, in that case a flower, or chocolate box would have been a better choice, or just wait to be back to celebrate, no one want to celebrate is birthday alone with a cake. So don t send birthday cake to your love one if you’re not there to share it with, otherwise you may lose him or her, then when your back bring him or her a cake and share it together. It’s always better to bring the cake or present yourself than to have it delivered, it’s a mark of respect of attention.
Should I have the cake delivered on is birthday?
NO, have it delivered one day ahead if there no other choice that way the recipient can bring it at work and share it with coworkers, or invite friends at home.
I remember a case where the sender asked the cake to be delivered between 12 to 5pm….. Well you spend the day waiting for the cake, not a good idea.

How big the birthday cake should be?
You should count 100 gr per person, so a 1 kg black forest cake should serve about 10 pax, more would be difficult,  the slice would be very small. It’s a birthday cake, everyone expect a slice not crumbs, I had a customer how wanted to slice it in 20, just imagine how her guest would feel to receive 50gr of the cake, it like being serve a half cup of tea.
Bigger the cake is better it is, better too much than not enough, if u have 20 guests chose 2 cakes, it would be easier to slice than a very large one, if your cake is too large it may also not feet into your chiller.

coffee is good for you it may help you live longer.

By Catherine Zuckerman

This story appears in the March 2018 issue of National Geographic magazine.
Coffee lovers, rejoice. New research suggests that people who drink two to three cups of coffee a day—caffeinated or not—may have a lower chance of dying from certain illnesses than those who abstain.
The study, thought to be the largest of its kind, followed more than 500,000 people in 10 European countries over the course of 16 years. It found that compared with those who don’t drink coffee, those who do show signs of having healthier livers and circulatory systems, as well as lower levels of inflammation, says epidemiologist and study leader Marc Gunter. The findings also indicated that “higher coffee consumption was associated with a reduced risk of death from any cause,” including circulatory diseases and digestive diseases, says Gunter, who heads the nutrition and metabolism section of the International Agency for Research on Cancer in Lyon, France.
Previous, smaller scale studies have found a link between coffee drinking and increased resistance to certain ailments, but Gunter’s findings provide the most substantial evidence to date. “This digestive disease relationship, which was strongest for liver disease deaths, is particularly striking,” he says.

Gunter says the next step is to analyze coffee’s chemical composition in hopes of understanding what makes the beverage beneficial. So he’s going back to his research—and the rest of us, it appears, should be going back for refills.

moon cake festival 2018

 

SINGAPORE: Mooncakes might be physically small, but they can have a big impact on your waistline – just one could contain the same number of calories as a full meal

inRead invented by Teads
For example, an average-size 192g baked lotus mooncake with two egg yolks has about 890 calories, according to the Health Promotion Board’s (HPB) nutrient analysis.

That is equivalent to about four bowls of rice, said Ms Bibi Chia, principal dietitian at Raffles Diabetes and Endocrine Centre. She added that one of these mooncakes has the same amount of sugar as about 1.5 cans of cola.
Other types of mooncakes, like those covered in snowskin, do not fare much better. A bite-size portion of an eighth of a snowskin mooncake is worth 93 calories, which works out to about half a bowl of rice.
All this spells bad news for people looking to enjoy the tasty treats of the Mid-Autumn Festival while still following a healthy diet. The challenge can be further intensified with more unusual fillings like durian and champagne truffle, which are potentially sweeter or more calorie-laden.
So, with the war on diabetes being stepped up in Singapore, is it time to moderate how many mooncakes we are munching on?

“Mooncakes are typically considered as unhealthy because of the high calorie, sugar and fat content,” she said.
One way to assess how healthy a mooncake is is to look at its glycemic index (GI). The GI measures how a carbohydrate-containing food raises blood glucose level. A lower GI content is better, especially for diabetes patients.

Information on the GI of mooncakes is limited, but in any case, Ms Goh said that the index alone is not a good measurement to decide if the food is healthy or suitable for someone with diabetes.
Explaining why, she compared a low-sugar lotus seed paste mooncake with pine nuts to a low-sugar lotus seed paste mooncake with salted egg yolk.
While they contain the same amount of carbohydrates per serving, a 22g piece – about one-eighth of a mooncake – of the one with pine nuts has a higher GI of 40 compared to 30 in the salted egg yolk mooncake, she said.
“This doesn’t mean the mooncake with pine nuts is less healthy. The fats in nuts are of unsaturated type, a better type of fat than saturated fat. Mooncakes with salted egg yolk contain more sodium. So when choosing mooncakes, it is about balancing choice and amount,” she said.
While mooncakes may be tempting in their hues of pink, yellow and green, and pretty designs and packaging, dietitians advocate eating just a small portion.
Ms Chia suggested cutting the mooncake into eight pieces to share with others, and to choose those with less sugar or with nuts and seeds.
Nutritionist Karin Reiter recommended making mooncakes at home with natural sugar substitutes like Stevia, or going for a walk immediately after having a small portion in order to regulate any spike in blood glucose levels. In diabetic patients, high blood glucose levels after a meal has been linked to heart disease.
LOW-SUGAR MOONCAKE OPTIONS AVAILABLE
While mooncakes should be consumed in moderation, Ms Goh pointed out that there are more low-sugar baked mooncakes available compared with five to 10 years ago.

One retailer who has started offering healthier alternatives is Laurent Bernard chocolatier. all Laurent Bernard chocolatier chocolate  mooncakes are low content sugar.

they contain 50%less sugar or even more than regular moon cake, the reason why mooncakes contain so much sugar, it s because in ancient time sugar was used to conserve food product. now with refrigerated system it is not needed to add so much sugar to the recipe. Chocolate is good for you health, it does contain lots of vitamines, antioxidant and mineral.

send a hamper full of love

IMGP5579There are lot of gift giving ideas around that can make a receiver smile and feel special. Sending a gift in a tried, tested, and traditionally accepted means like a box or hamper really sets a tone for the occasion.
Giving goodies in a hamper dates back when explorers are out there discovering new lands. The locals welcome them and give them food in a hamper. It is a sign of goodwill and good harvest given by the land. People back then believe if they take care and nourish their land, it will give them the fruits of their labor as a reward. And where they put that reward? It is definitely in a hamper.
Nowadays as part of gift giving tradition, people think of the most creative and imaginative ways to make a gift more exciting and appealing. Using a hamper to carry the contents of the whole gift brings back the old tradition of simpler times. Where people genuinely share what they have with each other as a sign of willing coexistence. Sending treats in a Hamper Singapore is still a traditional way of connecting with goodwill and prosperity. And practically, these hampers will still be useful after in every home.
What’s in the Hamper in Singapore? Feel Free to Choose your Package
Selecting what would a humble hamper should contain as gifts is really up to the giver. One can send chocolates, wine, ornaments, and even another basket of goodies inside. All that matters is the element of surprise it can give the receiver. It is like a treasure box full of affection and goodwill that would please everyone who opens it. It makes a person excited and intrigued in a very good way. It makes the contents inside will be very much rewarding to see.
Maintain Valuable Relations
Shopping for these kind of gifts whether online or in an actual store can be a chore. But if one should look at its effect to the recipients, it will be a good sign of having better future relations. It may be too cliched to state, but in every goodwill one sent, it sends more to people around and that keeps the wheel turning until it returns substantially. Sending a basket or hamper with an abundant content will not only give material things, It also sends a sign of full fondness and deep regard for that recipient. Thus maintaining valuable relations.
