I slightly modified my previous recipe Pastel Rainbow Chiffon Cake to remove the steam baking whom many have asked if it was necessary. As a result, I have increased the liquid and vanilla content and also reduced the baking time to get a moister cake. I also took this chance to experiment with semi-painted flower decorations, i.e. painting a layer of royal icing followed by sifting snow powder over so that the snow powder adheres like paint.
5 egg yolks
65g vegetable oil
70 ml water
8 ml vanilla extract
100g cake flour
7 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
The detailed recipe and pictures are now in Creative Baking: Chiffon Cakes!
Here's how the semi-painted flowers look like after drying! :)
And finally... rainbows peeking out from the window! :)
Thank God that the rainbow chiffon was well-received and they loved it :).
