Perfect pick me up – Happy New Year!




This is what I do when I have time to waste. I think of food and rush to the grocery store to test it out.

I was asked to give a colorful cooking class and the first thing I thought of while on the phone is a slice of orange topped with white chocolate sauce and blueberries. I slightly altered the dish to be cuter and more pleasant to the eye :)


Here’s what you need to do:


  1. Orange
  2. Blackberries
  3. Raspberries
  4. White chocolate
  5. Whipping cream
  6. Soft brown sugar (I prefer muscovado)
  7. Orange zest
  8. Rice flakes or any type of cereal you like
  9. Rice cakes (optional)



  1. Start with whipping the cream. Once it’s the texture you want, add as much white chocolate shavings as you want along with orange zest, vanilla and sugar. For a 250 ml whipping cream, i added around a teaspoon of orange zest, 3 tbs of sugar, a hint of vanilla and around 30 grams of white chocolate.
  2. Now for the stacking: the simplest one is what I’m showing in the picture: a slice of orange, cream, 4 berries topped with white chocolate shavings and crushed cereal. You can add more layers starting with rice cake, orange, cream and then berries or repeat the rice cake and orange layers twice then top them with berries and white chocolate. I liked the mini size version.


Z, one of the girls tried the cream with kiwi and it was phenomenal, so you can play around with ingredients as well.

It tastes great and very suitable for breakfast or a light dessert. Plus it looks cute don’t you think? :)


Bon Appetit!
