Project Steam Tapioca Cake with Brown Sweet Crusty Top

Filed under: Kitchen — agnes @ 4:22 am

Yesterday I bought the yellow flesh variety of tapioca, mashed, salted and steamed. I even tried to bake its top, sprinkled with generous amount of white sugar, hoping that it would turn out to be creme brulee topping like. You know, the brown crusty sweet top as in creme brulee and crema catalana. Forgot to take pictures. In fact I tried steaming tapioca twice with different successful result, except yesterdays’. The oven heater wasn’t working well, hence I got this tapioca cake with burnt sugar on its left and right, the center remains transparent with melted sugar.

A few links to tapioca cake, as a reminder and reference:

The Annie Residence by Bercy Chen Studio. A macho exterior marriage of steel, concrete, glass and wood. I don’t favour the interior and landscaping.

Dream House Inspiration Board #2

Last year I fell in love in a school architecture which I went to taught for a week. I help myself to admire its landscaping, building layout and interior design.

Click on the picture below to find out more about it. Pircher makes Planit prefab modular home, designed by Bestetti Associati. I don’t like the furniture and the stuff arrangement, pretty bland and messy.

Staircase

 This is the place that inspired my dream home. In fact I am surprised of myself, that I like contemporary style homes.

path

Green grass, smooth pebbles, ceiling to floor glass, large steel and glass doors, concrete staircase, floor and ceiling awashed in white. My mind felt peaceful, surroundded with natural light to work and read.
