  1. Hi Eileen, thanks a lot. If they have then I ask my daughter to drop by. I usually bake after dinner or in between cooking. Giving it out to my MIL and neighbor who gave me the banana.

  2. Hi Eileen, I ‘m also baking chiffon cake now. Will post tomorrow morning.
    Your looks delicious with cheese and chocolate rice, very soft & fluffy too.
    Don’t think I can get parmesan powder in JB, will ask my daughter to buy for me in S’pore. Which shop in S’pore is available? She is staying near Kitchen Capers.

    • Hi Amelia, still baking at this hour? I bought mine from Sun Lik Trading Pte Ltd at 33 Seah Street, pretty close to Raffles Hotel. I can help you to call Kitchen Capers tomorrow and let you know if they do sell parmesan cheese powder ^_^
