If you only try one Japanese snack, make sure its Pocky! Of course once you do try it, you'll be back for more. Crispy biscuit sticks coated in yummy chocolate. Need I say more? You count ask for a more perfect and simple snack. No visit to the international supermarket is complete without the Pocky - most of which gets eaten on the way home.

  • You can't have an official camping trip without making S'mores! Could this kit make the process any easier, everything you need in one little box.

The creator, Raadhika, tells me the cakes are inspired by jewelry. They look it as well - absolutely majestic and beautiful. To make the cakes, Raadhika hollows them out with fondant (sugar paste) icing and fills the centre with hand-made truffles or liqueur chocolates. For fruity flavors, she does variations like chocolate-dipped strawberries. She uses regular fondant as well as chocolate-flavoured fondant to cover hercakes. Check out her pretty basket weave pattern for a different look. Also, have a look at the prince and heart-shaped cakes. Cake flavours include vanilla, chocolate fudge, orange, blueberry-almond, orange marmalade, dates and others. Raadhika matches the fillers to the actual cake flavour; eg the marmalade cake has white chocolate citrus truffles as fillers. Her daughter does beautiful sugar roses using fondant to decorate her cakes. I couldn't bring myself to cut one. I had someone else do it for me! But I am glad I did because it was simply delicious - not overly sweet, moist and flavorful. I think these cakes are extraordinary. Raadhika answers calls and e-mails, so if you want to comment or inquire about her cakes, do contact her. She's enjoys receiving feedback and is prompt with her replies. Do check out her site. I hope you enjoy it. Go ahead and have your cake!

  • Ok, my mouth is watering! These chocolate covered strawberries are just plain yummy looking and if that isn't enough, you can custom decorate them for your special someone with "I Love You" artwork.
