Before I used 福 "Fu" stamp to stamping on the smiling old fashioned steamed sponge cake, actually I used Xi 喜 to stamping on this pink steamed glutinous rice buns. This is not my first time made this pink KiKaKu (this is how Hokkien called this kueh) but this version is with additional of soda drink.
I feel the additional of soda drink made this kueh tasted soft and slight chewy..
I feel so blessing and happy when see this lovely 喜 stamp on this kueh..
