 Ingredients List

  • ------------------------STEAMED GREEN PEAR CAKE DECO------------------------


90 g Sesame seed
90 g Plain flour
90 g Lard
75 g Syrup
45 g Peanut butter

150 g Spinach juice
110 g Wheat starch
35 g Glutinous flour
1/2 ts Shrimp roe (optional)
75 g Sugar
1/2 tb Lard
1 ts Milk powder
1/8 ts Vanilla essence

40 sm Twiglets, washed and dried

INNER DOUGH LAYER: Same as above outer dough layer, except replace
spinach juice with boiling water.

This one pretty much sums up the idea that in Asia things are not
always what they seem. Looking at the picture, I see what are
obviously steamed pears++complete with stems++with a couple of water
caltrops on one plate and steamed finger citrons (an Asian fruit that
looks sorta like a hand) accompanied by a couple of peaches on the
other plate. (Water caltrops are those seeds that look like a set of
miniature water buffalo horns.) What these things really are, though,
are steamed, stuffed sweet dumplings. I really wish I could post a
.gif with this message. These things look REAL! Somehow, I doubt that
anyone will want to attempt this one, but here it is just in case.
