Orange chocolate chiffon cake ~ 鮮橙巧克力戚风蛋糕


This soft and moist chiffon cake has a combination of orange and chocolate flavour and the texture is light and cottony.  To give it a facelift, I dusted it with chocolate powder over a template.  Fresh orange juice and zest do pair very well with the chocolate and they complement each other. Great to pair with a cup of perfectly brewed tea!

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.
