My Golden Rats









Since I am making another batch of pineapple tarts. I decided to play with the dough and made these six little rats to welcome the Rat Year. I got this inspiration from aunty Yochana's blog. Let me tell you, these are not easy to shape at all and really have to kudo to those that have the patience to shape so many rats, or the rose shape pineapple tarts. This was not my best job as I had to do it fast as little one was crying (wanna sleep), thus some turned out looking more like pigs. LOL!

Happy NY LCOM,
Your rats are just perfect. They look like real. You should brush them with egg wash to give them a golden color. For someone busy with kids, like you, and be able to achieve this kind of baking, it is just amazing!

OMG...too cute leh! :) He!He! Sounds like me...my mom often nagged at me and kept complaining that I will never find a hubby. I love pork floss too...just a must have! :)

Little Corner of Mine said...

Thanks beachlover and JP!

JP...hahaha...some men do like women without/with minimal makeup. I think if we always see someone with heavy makeup on, on that day if we see her without it, we will probably get a shock! LOL!

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that everyone who sees these pictures goes, "awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!"

and like lore, i also love the picture of the rat putting its butt in our faces. if i were that cute, i would wave my butt at everyone.

Angelic Arena said...

is there any way that you can possibly write the recipe?? I want to try making these! they are so cute!
I went to "aunty Yochana's blog" but the recipe is not written there either.. >..<
Thank You!! :D

Little Corner of Mine said...

Hi Angelic Arena,

I used my pineapple tart recipe located in my blog. Inside I have the pineapple filling. As to how to shape it, I just shape it my eyes.

Good Luck!
