Hi Olivia,

Thanks, for your compliment. During those days, we only get to taste this kind of special cake when some well off relative was getting marriage. So this slice is really precious to me too.

Hi happy flour,

this is one of my favourite childhood cake! How about the taste? Do they really taste like those "olden cakes"? If so, i would really love to try baking this. Thanks for sharing the recipe :)

Hi SW,

The texture of the cake is more fine and light.

Hi Happy Flour,

Love the cakes you made, looks so soft and light. Can you teach me how to make the piping jelly? I bought those ready made ones and it's quite expensive, and the taste doesn't resemble those sold in the bakery. hope you can teach me so that i can save some $ :)

Hi Anonymous,

You can buy a bottle of piping jelly from Phoon Huat or Sun Lik. Then just add food colouring and pipe on the cake.

very nice and cute! ya, really reminds me of those days where these were given when someone was getting married... may i know do you cut the cake into slices before doing the deco?

Hi Yin,

Thanks for your compliment. I spread whipping cream on the cake first, then I slice it into individual pieces and decorate them.
