Christmas Velvet cupcakes (圣诞红丝绒杯子蛋糕)

Today is Christmas Eve. Have you plan anything for tonight?? My family and I, we are attending the Christmas Eve mass in the Cathedral. I love the Christmas Eve mass as you can hear the lovely voices from the choir group singing the Christmas Hymns and Carols.

Forever Friends is sending a gift to you!!!


Velvet cupcakes without the FF topper, just cream cheese rosette frosting!

With Santa FF bear topper. Which one do you like? The rosette frosting or the FF bear topper? :D

This velvet cupcake is moist and dense.
It pair very well with the cream cheese frosting.

Christmas Velvet Cupcakes(圣诞红丝绒杯子蛋糕)
Recipe adapted from 星期天的烘焙时光-郑荣仙者 (this book is in Chinese - Home Baking by Parandal)
makes: 5 cupcakes

Ingredients for velvet cupcake:

70g unsalted butter 
80g castor sugar 
1 egg 55g sour cream
35g milk 
88g plain flour 
12g cocoa powder 
1/2 tsp baking powder 
1 tsp red food coloring (I use Americolor 119-RED RED)

Ingredients for Cream Cheese Frosting: 
140g cream cheese 
70g unsalted butter 
55g icing sugar 
1 tsp lemon juice (I omit this)

for frosting:
Beat cream cheese, butter, icing sugar and lemon juice till smooth.

 To do for cupcakes: Beat butter and sugar till smooth. Beat in egg till combine. Add in sour cream and milk. (mixture will become curd but no worries. As you fold in flour the mixture will turn smooth) 

Fold in flour and cocoa powder till combine. Scoop mixture into each cupcake cases about 70% full. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 20-25 minutes.

Wishing all readers and friends a
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year ^_^

I baked this cake once, twice, thirce and now i lost count BUT everytime i bake this cake i feel HAPPY. Hope this happy thoughts and feeling will spread to YOU ^_^ Happy that the cake rise beautifully and with almost no shrink or crack. Happy that my boys and friends love this cake. I baked this chiffon cupcake again for Bake Along event. I am going to Bake Along with these 3 beautiful ladies again.  This is a revisit of this recipe - HERE The previous post of Hokkaidao chiffon cupcake, i used durian cream as filling. Now in this post i used vanilla whipped cream/Chantilly cream as filling. I love to use dairy whipping cream as filling. Just add adequate of icing sugar/castor sugar to the whipping  cream and whisked it to light and fluffy. Then mix in any flavor that you like into the cream and piped it into the cake. Saw some nice and fresh bluberries in the supermarket, i quickly grab some for decoration :D Nice and smooth sides.    Moist, soft and fl

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
