  11. Hi, Cheah, beetroot by itself tastes a bit sour, isn't it, so this beetroot ice-cream must be very refreshing!An ice-cream maker here can be as cheap as just $20-$30 but I'm really curious how good they are compares to a good brand. Anyway, it is something that I'm hesitating to buy.

    1. The ice cream doesn't taste sour at all, really can't tell there's beet in it. I'm using a Cuisinart ice cream maker, so far so good.

Topo Map Cake ~ 地图蛋糕

I think it is more appropriate to name this cake just as 'Topo map cake' for the layers in this cake really look like a map.  Layering this cake can be quite challenging as a great deal of patience is required.  But patience and endurance do pay and after the cake is baked and once you sliced it up, you'll be so pleased to see the pretty layers and the colour combination.  Not only does it look awesome, the texture is good too, soft and moist.
