Black Forest Cake 黑森林蛋糕

I would said Black Forest cake is an old fashion and classic Birthday cake. When we were young, usually we had Black Forest cake for Birthday.
I made three Black Forest cakes in a row on last week, made for my niece and nephew who all Birthday falls in the same week and same month..I realized that most of my family members' Birthday is falls in month of August....Nowadays, i try to make Birthday cake for my family members..

Basic Chocolate Sponge Cake

I was so happy finally found a good sponge cake base that can be use as a cake base for Birthday cake. This recipe is even more easier to make if compare to the earlier sponge cake recipe that i used.
And the tip that i learnt from this recipe is to make sure you beat egg white till stiff peaks (十分发 / 硬性发泡) since we use a normal cake tin without tube/insert like chiffon cake tin. Also make sure you do not use a cake tin that is non-stick.


To make whipped cream from non-dairy whipping cream 植物性奶油

This is how i made the whipped cream using non-dairy whipping cream 植物性奶油. Whipped cream made from non-dairy whipping cream is suitable to make frosting for Birthday cake using sponge cake base (light and spongy cake) and that need to store inside the fridge. This cream will not turn hard after storing inside the fridge unlike buttercream.

Matcha (Green tea) ice cream 抹茶雪糕

I have never thought of getting an ice cream maker until i saw many bloggers sharing their lovely ice cream recipes. Also I feel this is the right timing to own one, since my kids are still young, and they love ice cream very much (when kids have grown up, no demand then how to make right?). After I failed to get a lovely pink ice cream maker (Cxxxx brand) , I have no choice just bought an ordinary Kxxx brand ice cream maker..The first recipe i tried out was this Matcha ice cream which is my family's favourite ice cream.
