Giant / Big Rose Cake for Valentine's Day (with recipe and video instructions)

I posted the big rose cake a few years ago, and I found that the cake picture is still shared by people in Pinterest. It is so surprising!

At that time, I attached a video in Chinese cos I could not find video instruction in English at that time.

I tried to find again recently. I found one but there is no detailed recipe.

Here it is:https://www.littlethings.com/beautiful-rose-cake/

Thus, I translated the detailed recipe in the video in Chinese version for you (It is below the old post). Hope that people who like to bake cakes can try to make this pretty cake in Valentine's Day.

Below is the old post:

My friend's friend made a big rose cake to his wife for Valentine's Day. That is really amazing!!

He is a man, who made the cake. That is so great!

I like it very much!  I like its shape and color. Do you like it?

Glutinous Rice Balls / No Bake Pop Cakes

Pop cakes are so pretty and popular in kids party.

But it is time consuming to bake cakes.

There is a more easy method to make that. Instead of baking cake, you just need to use Glutinous Rice.

Steps:

1. Mix 200g Glutinous Rice powder with water. Add water gradually until you can mix it with the water into smooth dough.

Note: 200g powder can make about 20 one-inch balls

2. Make the dough into balls.

3. Put the balls into boiled water. When they float on water, you can take them up.

Note: Try not to leave the balls in open air for a long time, or there will be cracks on the balls. If you cannot cook them immediately, cover them with wet tissue.

4. Put the cooked balls into cold water for cooling.

5. Put a few Glutinous Rice balls onto long sticks, or put one ball on a short stick each time.
