Here’s my Guji Guji 拜年! Wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy and Propserous Lunar New Year!
Since it’s Chinese new year, I will keep this post short as it’s a time of rest and family! =D
The cake is inspired by Guji Guji (咕鸡咕鸡), Mediacorp’s adorable chicken mascot this year. I’m sure we’ve all seen the cute Guji Guji dancing on TV and all over Singapore! My friend sent me a photo of the plush Guji Guji toy she loves and asked if I could make it for her family reunion.
I tried out a two-tone ‘hatching egg’ design for the base chiffon cake, using yuzu-orange dual flavours (yuzu top, orange bottom). The zig zag design is actually similar to my Seawaves cake in Deco Chiffon Cakes, so you can find more picture tutorials there. The Guji Guji is made from lemon chiffon cake, by joining two bowl cakes, one for body and head. The rest of the details were cut from sheet cakes.
Happy new year!
With lots of love,
Honored for my Guji guji cake to be regrammed by Mediacorp Channel 8 @ch8sg on their official Instagram account!
