if you are a baker, u will have noticed this sudden flux of Ogura cake posting.. i was like what is going on? of course, I googled it, and in Cornercafe’s words, this rush evolved from *quote* “the Malaysian Chinese bloggers to make a copycat of a very popular signature cotton-soft cake from Malaysia. This particular cake comes from a bakery chain named Family Bakery 芳鄰西點蛋糕 in the town of Batu Pahat in Johor, a southern Malaysian state just north of Singapore. The cake is called Ogura Cake in English/Japanese but in Chinese it is known as 相思蛋糕 which literally translates as Pining4U or Lovesickness Cake. For whatever reasons they chose that name for the cake, it is indeed a very catchy name in Chinese for sure, but I expect it also cleverly carries the assumption that the customers would pine for this cake again and again after they tasted it… *unquote*
oh well, if everyone is Ogura-ing, i need to ogura it at least once.. monkey see, monkey do?
Beautiful Beijing day – wished i could sit outside, have a slice of this cake, sip coffee, legs relaxed on top of the table with feet flapping my “人”字型… and my inspiration today for my ipad customised cover “Victoria Bakes…. I should be home baking”
