Miniature Teochew Pastry (Piah)
Tranditional Teochew pastries and cakes are getting lesser and lesser in Singapore. I am a Teochew , just like other Singaporeans , I can also speak Hokkien and Cantonese. My parents used to buy Teochew pastries and cakes used as offerings to God when I was young . Now, I buy these pastries and
cakes for my mum just for fun snacking.
I would like to try to make a series of miniature Teochew Piah (cake) in the future. Below show my handmade miniature Teochew cakes. (the first 2 photos showed the miniature piah without varnish)
You can always see some red Chinese character on top of a Tranditional Teochew Piah( cakes ). I use the Chinese word "福“(fu) : blessing
You can't made a same item twice when it is handmade, these 3 miniature Teoches cakes look similar but not the same, especially the colour. it is quite difficult to get back the same colour, I try my best.
Well,I cut the piah into half and put some fake dao sa (red bean paste) into it.
