Creative Baking: Chiffon Cakes
Hailed as the “cake discovery of the century” back in the late 1940s when it was first introduced to home bakers, the chiffon cake remains a firm favourite the world over seven decades on. And no wonder, as chiffon cakes are not just light, fluffy and moist, everything that is desirable in a cake, but also low in sugar and butter-free! Although chiffon cakes are typically baked round and tall, creative bakers Susanne Ng and Tan Phay Shing found that they could break from this mould (!) and inject a dose of fun and lots of creativity into making chiffon cakes a whole new way! From multi-colour patterned cakes, tiered cakes, decorated cakes and cakes with hidden designs, to shaped cakes, cake pops and cupcakes, all decorated without the need for cream or fondant, you’ll be amazed at what you can create using chiffon cake, with results that taste as good as they look! Get creative and rediscover the cake of the century with Creative Baking: Chiffon Cakes today!
Susanne Ng holds a PhD in Biomedical Engineering and worked in biomedical research before she chose to stay home to spend time with her three children. Through friends, she picked up an interest in making chiffon cakes. The idea of applying patterns to chiffon cakes came to her one day when she was bored and she created the Sakura Matcha cake, followed by Christmas cake pops. There was no stopping her from then on. Susanne now specialises in making patterned, decorated chiffon cakes and both her titles, Creative Baking: Chiffon Cakes and Creative Baking: Deco Chiffon Cakes are bestsellers. Susanne has been featured in newspapers and magazines, both print and online, all over the world. Learn more about Susanne and her creations on her blog and social media channels.
