I love Black. Other than charcoal powder, black sesame paste is another favourite! I wanted to bake something from the sesame paste I have just bought. But other than chiffon, I can’t find anything suitable from my cookbook. Black Sesame ice cream? Erm, I will try that next time . Okay, this time I baked for my aunt. I wanted her to bring back my bake and remember me….haha. Actually, I feel happy knowing that someone enjoy eating my bakes..which I don’t mind baking twice a day..or thrice a day….if you understand why. Do you ?
