Cute Panda Rice Shape With Japanese Curry

Cute panda rice lunch box anyone? 🙂

Made panda shaped rice with Japanese curry for brunch and it looked good (tasted good too :p)

It had quite a good response from my colleagues when I brought it to work.

As for my husband, he just ate it whole without much thought about it being cute.

He just saw it as something edible and munched on everything laid on his plate.

I bought a panda rice mold during my trip to Japan a few months back and finally had the chance to use it.

Didn’t really have much time to use it right after I got back from Japan, but after a short shopping trip after seeing a bag of Japanese rice on the shelf made me think of the panda tool at home and tadaaaa…

It wasn’t really difficult so here’s a pictorial step to step thingy 🙂

Simple Strawberry Classic Victoria Sponge Cake

This pretty cake was simple to make for a newbie in baking like me.

Found a Youtube video and it is quite bullet proof) 🙂

The whole thing took me about 30 minutes to prep (because I’m a slowpoke).

I recommend using fresh, big and juicy strawberries for this recipe and thick whipping cream *yums!*

My mother-in-law likes it and said it tasted good 🙂

So here’s the video below if you wanna get more information on baking this lovely cake.

Toodles! 🙂
