I promise to write abt my new baking toy but work once again caught up and I only manage to leave the office only at 3.30am in the morning and back to work by 10am the next day. So much abt work which is going to be different again next year, for the better or worse I dunno. Well, I shall stop here about work as this blog is strictly about my baking journey and the joy that I get.
Got good reviews on the chocolate chip cookies I give out even from my picky manager and it’s still as crunchy after several days. Thanks to sis who gave me the idea to add in the colorful quinns for a more Xmas season touch.
Oh … back to my new baking toy … it’s a pineapple tart mould! Yes, you see dozens of this in plastic anywhere but they dun give very good pattern after several use, u have to consistently brush the mould. My mood always get dampen when I see they dun “print” nicely. Pressing them after several hours and your palm hurts too. This new mould is made of copper! As you can see that the “engrave” is very deep and sure produce very nicely print tarts. It’s pretty heavy hence it will automatically weigh the mould down to the dough hence you won’t need to press. When you lift up the mould, it will also push the tart out so you just have to peel it away. Sounds good? And this need to be season too, suppose to soak this in oil for 1 day, then run under tap water to wash and it’s good to keep. Can’t wait to buy some pineapple paste and start trying this mould. I shld start early this year to try out different dough. The price to pay? Few bottle of good pineapple tarts, I tell myself I must be crazy to buy this.
