So happy to make these Disney Tsum Tsum Deco Steam Cakes. The characters are Winnie the Pooh and his friends ;)
Recently work has been madness. But the funny thing is that the more stress I am, the more I want to make and cook cute food.
It is definitely a therapeutic process for me (okay.. maybe except the washing :P) lol.
I have made a few Tsum Tsum bento lunch boxes already, so its time to make something else but Tsum Tsum design :D
Disney Tsum Tsum, the popular LINE game is translated as ‘Disney stack stack’, involves linking up at least 3 of the same characters that causes them to ‘explode’, gaining points and coins in the process.
Doesn’t the photo above look just like the Disney Tsum Tsum game, all stacked together :D
Back to the recipe~~
Those of you who have been following my blog, would probably be familiar with my deco steam cake, or called deco mushipan in Japanese.
Using hotcake mix and yogurt as the base, this no-bake recipe is super easy to make, healthy and yummy.
Recipe – Disney Tsum Tsum Deco Steam Cake
Makes approx 8, 2 per character
(A) For basic batter
- 300g Hotcake Mix
- 40g sugar *If you are using plain yogurt without sugar, please add 80g of sugar instead of 40g stated.
- 200 g non fat or low fat yogurt (with sugar)
- 1 tsp vanilla bean paste or 8-10 drop of vanilla essence
- 2 tbsp salad oil (or replace with vegetable, non flavour oil)
- 4 small size eggs
- 7g baking powder
(B) For the details and designs
- 0.5 tsp black or dark cocoa powder
- 1 tsp cake flour
Dark pink batter
- 0.5 tsp cake flour
- pink icing food colour
(C) For the coloured batter
- yellow icing food colour
- pink icing food colour
- purple icing food colour
- red + yellow icing food colour (or orange icing food colour)
(D) for the ears
For the ears
- 0.5 tsp cake flour x 3
- Dough for the ears
1. Make the basic batter (A). All all the wet ingredients together, mix well. Then sift in the hot cake mix and baking powder in 2-3 parts. Fold till incorporated.
2. Black batter – Scoop out 2 tsp of basic batter and add in 0.5 tsp dark/black cocoa powder. Mix well and transfer into a small hand rolled piping bag made from parchment paper.
3. White batter – Scoop out 4 tsp of basic batter and add in 1 tsp cake flour. Mix well and transfer into a small hand rolled piping bag made from parchment paper.
4. Dark pink batter – Scoop out 2 tsp of basic batter and add in 0.5 tsp cake flour and pink icing colour. Mix well and transfer into a small hand rolled piping bag made from parchment paper.
7. To each of the remaining batter (yellow, orange, purple), add in 0.5 tsp cake flour. Mix well and transfer each into a small hand rolled piping bag made from parchment paper.
Now you are ready for the second part.
Tip: If you really make a mistake, you can use toothpick to help adjust or even scoop out the batter a little.
9. Place the steam cakes on a steamer rack and steam at low heat for 16 mins.
It is good to place each of them in a holder/container. This prevents the cup from expanding too much, keeping your design intact.
Please ensure that the pot is high enough as the cakes will rise when steamed.
In addition, highly recommend to cover the pot lid with a steamer cloth to prevent water from dripping onto the cakes. It will spoil the design and may cause sinking, or the cake to split apart.
10. Make the ears of the characters. Pipe the coloured batter from step 7 on good quality parchment paper. I usually like to pipe extra so that I can pick and choose the ears that look good and with the right size.
11. Steam each for about 3 mins. I place the parchment paper on a small flat plate or tray to steam on the steaming rack.
12. Using a small sharp scissors, cut a shallow slit where the ears are to be and slot them in to complete the characters
