  9. Hi Cheah,

    Your Danish butter cookies are very nicely piped with beautiful shapes. I reckon baking these kinds in good shapes can be challenging and you did yours very well!

    Btw, iIf you piped these cookies in a "S" shapes, your cookies remind me of the dragon cookies that Sonia baked...

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try.

  Angel Food Cake is a meringue based sponge cake with no butter, no oil and no baking powder or any rising agent.  It's aerated texture comes from the beaten egg whites.  This cake is soft, cloud-like, pillowy with a slight tinge of orange and is great to serve as dessert with some whipped cream, berries and in my case I chose grapes.
