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

The Winnie the Pooh Tsum Tsum series is one of my favourites. I find Pooh bear, Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger Tsum Tsum all so cute.Winnie the Pooh Disney Tsum Tsum Deco Steam Cake Recipe (12)

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

Black batter

  • 0.5 tsp black or dark cocoa powder

White batter

  • 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

Method

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.

5. Divide the remaining basic batter into 4 portions and add in the colours (C) for the the various coloured batter Winnie the Pooh Disney Tsum Tsum Deco Steam Cake Recipe (5)

6. Fill the muffin cups to about 80% full. Important Note: You will need to leave some extra orange, yellow and purple batter for the eyes, just about 1.5 tsp or so. Winnie the Pooh Disney Tsum Tsum Deco Steam Cake Recipe (4)

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.

8. Pipe the details using the various colours. Try to keep the lines fine. Winnie the Pooh Disney Tsum Tsum Deco Steam Cake Recipe (2)

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.

Point:

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

      hmmmm so odd. It has never happened to me before. hmmm….. its probably the batter judging by the way you described it. Could be the wrong consistency.

    Hello,

    Can i ask for the tigger, how do you make the different shades of colour, jus piping the orange to the pink base issit? Cos previously tried the steam cakes, its taste good but all my eyes and nose sink to the bottom :(

      Hello Serene sorry for my late reply!!! I am glad the cakes taste good :) if it sinks then the piping batter is a little too thick, either increase the original batter or reduce the cake flour/cocoa powder added. :)

    Now that’s very cute. I read the instructions but I was wondering if the colored batter has no risk of sinking to the bottom of the cake? Now I only bake cake, never tried steaming but this seems interesting. Using no ovens means no browning of the colors. That’s quite smart. :)

      Hi Chien

      thanks for dropping by. Yes this is a fun recipe and cute cakes. The consistency of the batter is important to ensure that the designs stay on top. So yes, if its too thick or too thin, there is a possibility that it will sink. That is why cake flour etc are added. It does take a while to get used and familiar with the batter consistency for the piping of designs.
