Mandarin Oranges Decorated Chiffon Cake 橘子心型威风蛋糕~~欢喜过马年


Today is Western's Valentine Day and also Chinese's Valentine Day (Chap Goh Mei), double happiness. I made this cake which has both West and East elements. Mandarin orange represented Chap Goh Mei, and heart shape chiffon cake represented Western Valentine. Wishing all have a lovely celebration today!!




 
When i returned to hometown during CNY day 2, my brother was so happy told me that he has two can of abalone inside the hamper that he has received. After he opened the hamper, and realized that that two cans was mandarin orange but not abalones. When he first see this brand, first sure think of abalone as this brand is famous of can abalone.We had a good laugh of this ,hahaha..
He don't know what to do with this, so I offered to make cake using this Mandarin oranges.
 


We will cut this cake tonight as I organizing a family gathering at my house, so I can't show you the inside of this cake. I will try to post a picture later if I have opportunity to take a picture ya..

Sonia,我在某间烘焙传单上看到有一张你的蛋糕照片,不知道他们是否有经过你的同意而采用,那是一张北海道小蛋糕的照片,虽然非常小张,但我很确定那是你的照片。
如果你想知道那里的话,我才会私下email给你,我这么做不为什么也没有别的意思,因为我对那些喜欢用别人家的照片来当自己地非常讨厌。
