3D 'Rooster' Salted Egg Yolk Chiffon Cake

My little baby roosters have found their mummy! =p Don't they look so happy? The mummy is kind of overweight due to all the Chinese new year feasting =D

I've previously shared an easy salted egg yolk chiffon recipe and method for making these cute baby rooster cupcakes. The big 3D rooster was actually made at the same time using the same salted egg yolk recipe but in a doll cake pan. The lady had a special request to have less sweetness, so I reduced the sugar content and salted egg yolk accordingly by 80% so that the flavour would be balanced. The colour looks darker and I think that's normal due to the longer baking time of the big cake in the oven.

For the big 3D version, the crown was cut out from sheet cake instead of using hearts sprinkles. The nose was baked for chiffon cake in paper cones instead of sprinkles as well. I used melted marshmallows to stick them on.

Here's another family reunion photo of the salted egg yolk rooster family! =D Cheeesse..

I'll be posting slightly faster these 2 weeks to clear the CNY bakes!

With lots of love,
