Personal notes:
– i divided dough into 2 equal portion and mixed red yeast powder to one portion, and pumpkin powder to a pinchful of original dough. Proof dough for 1 hour
– I rolled the pink dough into a thick rectangle and cut the head of My Melody using a rabbit’s head cookie cutter (each head was about 13g)
– Roll a small portion of original dough till paper thin, and use a 3cm round shape biscuit cutter to cut out the face of My Melody. Place it onto the head, and slightly stretch it out
– as I do not have a mini flower cutter, I used a star shape cutter to cut out the stars on Melody’s ears, and rolled small balls of yellow to attach to the flower , and the face (nose)
– I further proofed the mini buns in the steamer (with warm water ~ 35 degrees C) for 20mins
– remove buns from steamer, cover with damn cloth, and heat up steamer till water boils
– As my buns are super mini, I steamed them for 6mins, and kept them in the steamer for another 3.5 mins before removing from steamer
– eyes and mouth are piped on with melted chocolate… (p.s. better to pain point with toothpick)

    You know, I was thinking hard about the name for the cartoon character, but I couldn\’t remember, then I saw it was My Melody. 🙂 Thanks for showing us another cute way of shaping and decorating steamed buns!
