Mock Cream 简易牛油 淇淋

This is a simple and versatile kind of frosting that you will love. I love it after trying once, i know you will love this too.

It  is the MOCK CREAM. It is a blend of butter, icing sugar and some boiling water.

Mock Cream
Recipe source: cornercafe

Makes 1 heaped cup (about 250g) cream
125g butter, softened
75g (1/2 cup) icing sugar mixture
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
40ml (2 tablespoons) boiling water
20ml (1 tablespoon) water at room temperature

To Do:
Mix boiling water and room-temperature water; set aside. Cream softened butter and icing sugar until light, pale and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Gradually add the warm water, one teaspoon at a time, and beat well to incorporate after each addition. As you add the water and beat, it might be a good idea to beat by hand (or using the lowest speed if using electric beater) to prevent the water splashing about.
(I am using a hand mixer on the lowest speed )

I am using this cream for my Pandan Ogura Cake.
Stay Tune!!  :D


  1. The recipe sounds really good , Doreen ! You piped that cream beautifully :D

  2. Is this similar to buttercream? Your piping is gorgeous!

    1. Yen,
      Yes it is. Only that this is lighter and smoother with the addition of Hot water.

  3. Love this cream. Will come in handy when need it. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Hi Mui Mui, thank you for sharing the recipe, it look really good.. Beautiful piping skill.

    Best regards.

    1. Amelia,
      Yes, this is really smooth kind of frosting.
      Thanks for compliment : )

  5. I saw this cream in a cookbook earlier , I was wondering how can buttercream by adding hot boiling water, scare the cream become melt, in fact it can work huh, next time must try this quick and easy way .,

    1. Ah Chi,
      I have the same feeling too when I look at this recipe. Actually if you look at the recipe it says 40g boiling water mixed with 20g room temperature water so it's like warm, not hot.. :p
      Anyway, I love this, it is smooth and nice: )

  6. Hi Doreen, this is exactly what i have been looking for, something simple and quick for frosting. Love it, i will definitely try this on my next cake! :)

    1. Hi Esther,
      I love this simple frosting, I bet you will love it too. It taste smooth and velvety.
      Try it and let me know what do you think heehee

  7. I like this mock cream too. Very smooth.

  8. How come when I made it, it was more buttery and it wasnt not white. It didnt come together as a cream.

  9. Hi!May i know how long can this cream stay at room temperature?

    1. Hi Happy Bunny,
      This cream will stay in room temperature for a few hours, about 2-3 hours.

    2. Thank you very much :)

Shark Fin Dumpling ~鱼翅饺

This Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow), is one of my favorite dumpling. Although it is named Shark Fin Dumpling, but they contain no actual shark fin in it. Some say the look and shape of the dumpling does look like shark fin and other do include in imitation shark fin, though. I am lucky to have spotted this long hibernating in the book shelf chinese dim sum book ‘香港地道小吃’ translated as 'Hong Kong Authentic Tapas' Well, Do, you find this look like Shark's Fin?? 看看形状像不像鱼翅呢??  Filling for the ingredients are prawn, mince meat, carrot, yam bean and black fungus. Get ready the filling and the wanton wrappers. This is the parade of my Shark's Fin dumpling ... lol Homemade parchment paper liner. Arrange them neatly into the bamboo steamer. HOT! HOT! From the steamer!! Loaded with filling ..YUM! ENJOY~ Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow) (Scallop dumpling /Cilantro dumpling - depends which filling you using) Recipe adapted from  ‘香港地
