IMG_8453after i saw this willow leaf shaped buns at may’s, i was reminded how unskillful i am with these
but may has given some confidence in me..
already then! i have to give it a go again.. frankly, these are very easy..
it’s a matter of the thumb and index moving to and fro to fold the pleats
ok, to be improved.. i have to consult my chinese helper again
亲亲家看到这柳叶形包子后,自觉这一直是我的败笔。。
好,看见亲亲做了,也给了我信心
其实,做起来,挺简单滴。。就拇指和食指来回折叠
捏得不是很好。。下次再努力,跟咋们家阿姨偷师偷师

    Hi Victoria,

    I think that you are too humble… Your shaping skill is really good. This is one of the shaping techniques that I have not attempted and wonder if I can be as good as you.

    这个形状容易多了,比起妳家的狗不理包子的捏痕,这个对妳来说湿湿水啦,太谦虚了呐
    哈哈哈哈

    亲亲,你真的是太太厉害了, 这包捏的棒极了, 而且还是包入湿的内馅, 不简单叻!
    我暂时还不敢包入湿的内馅捏包花, 怕走样呢, 嘻嘻!
