hi there =) i see that you place your paper cups into moulds.. what kind of mould did u use? and wats the purpose? is it to prevent the paper from getting wet due to the steam? im sorry if my questions are nonsensical... im new at making these blossom cakes.. =)

Rima said...

Hi there..
I used ur typical mould that u can get at any baking supply shop.. its to prevent ur papercups fm getting wet and at the same time to hold on to its round shape.. without the mould ur cake will turn out flat ..

Hidayah Ibrahim said...

Hi Rima,

How do u make the dots on the coconut blossoms? Is there any special utensil to use or did u just use the same piping bag? And the dots should be made prior to steaming? As in at the stage together with the raw batter in the mould?

Thanks in advance

Hi Lincat
nope.. just use disposable piping bags.. divide ur batter into a few parts.. colour them and pour it into each piping bag.. once ready.. u pipe in ur main colour.. followed by the dots.. once done.. u steam it..

Riza said...
