Making Sugar Ribon Roses

With the right ingredients & tools, anyone can make this even if you have no clue of what it is.


1. Craft knife
2. Small Rolling pin
3. Non stick mat
4. Ruler (not in picture)
5. Sugar paste/ Fondant (picture follows)
6. Shortening (not in picture)

Optional (not in picture):
1. Gum paste
2. food coloring paste


1. Mix Sugar paste & Gum Paste together (ratio 1:1), otherwise 100% Sugar paste can still do a good job.
2. Knead the dough till smooth. You may use abit of shortening so that you can roll easily.
3. At this point, you may add in food coloring if you want, otherwise white would suffice.

5. Roll the dough till about 1/8" thick using rolling pin on the non stick mat. Use shortening to prevent stickiness while you roll the fondant on top.

6. Using cutter, and cut the dough into long strips of approx 1" wide.

7. Roll the strips.

And TADA!!!

Supreme Moist Chocolate Cake Premix Review

This is another premix cake review.

Ingredients needed were almost the same as the last one i did for brownies, only more liquid & eggs required.

I tried this with souffle cups again.

Considering with so much liquid involve, this time i filled in mixture half way through the baking cups, i expect the height of the cakes will rise perfectly.

But the cakes somehow rised too much during baking, hence, there were wastages, and some burnt bits. The appearance of the cupcakes turned out "bad".

Think "The Elephant Man".

Feeling unsatisfied with this cake mix, I need another try for this cake mix some other time.

Flavour wise, it weren't that fantastic. It wasn't chocolatey at all.

However, I love the texture, as it was soft.

( I decorate this with some edible sugar flowers. )

With few more tries, and tweaking the ingredients here and there (eg. using Full Cream Milk, instead of water OR using Butter instead of vege oil), i am sure this cake mix can do a pretty good job once you are used to the raising height proportion.
