Last week or the week before, Angela asked if I wanna get anything from Daiso as she is going to the branch at Ion. So I asked her to let me know if got any new baking tools. And there she is, even with the very bad reception, she managed to send me Whatsapp for these 2 very cute mini cake tin with removable base. Love it.
And since I am making a Strawberry Shortcake as requested by another nice, old fren, I decided to trial a mini one for my family to test out the sweetness etc. I was quite worried to use the tin as it is not non-stick and also not the dull silvery cake tin. In fact it is those shiny metal tins that I don't know if my cake will 'climb' well. But my worries were uncalled for as it rises nicely and bake nicely. *Yeah*
So I proceeded with all the tips learnt in RG's class to cream and do up the cake, similar design as to how the bakery present their version of Strawberry Shortcake. Considered 6/10? I hope to improve next round in terms of 'dolling' up the cake. Taste wise, yummy!!
Btw I am using the same recipe, but its 1/3 of the original recipe for 1 mini size cake. And I am using whipping cream this round.
Vanilla Sponge ( given by a fren, so not sure where she got it)
