The latest food trend, for desserts that is, is the ‘Raindrop Cake’ also known as ‘Dew Cake.’
Its a take on the Japanese ‘Mizu Shingen Mochi’ and there’s no traditional cake ingredients in it, just mineral water and agar-agar (a gelling agent made from a mixture of several different carbohydrates extracted from seaweed).
The original flavor is served with sesame powder, ‘kinako’ (roasted soy bean flour) and ‘kuromitsu’ (Japanese sugar syrup, literally means ‘black honey’ that is similar to molasses)
Cakes, pastries, chocolates and more! Tickle mom’s sophisticated taste buds with a sweet surprise from the Deli Snack. Don’t miss the day without giving her a beautiful Mother’s Day cake, like this Blueberry Bavarian Cream Cake – a delightful two-layered Bavarian cream cake with blueberry fillings in a crushed graham crust with sweet coffee-flavored miroir and chocolate ornaments on top – a sure treat for all mothers!
Scorching Summer heat calls for the Filipino all-time favorite snack cooler – ice candy! Now to eat fruits and getting cooled at the same time is hitting two birds with one stone. But, why not top it up a notch by making it into a cocktail too! So last weekend my Aunt, sister and I had this impromptu Summer heat quenchers experiment – fruit ice candy with a bit(?) of alcohol. Here are the recipes for the Margarita and Daiquiri, will post more recipes using Cointreau, Baileys, etc. But in the meantime enjoy and cheers! 😜
