Tenacity, Innovative and Adorable are some of the attributes I refer to an Indonesian Food Artist, Rabbit! Rabbit? Yes, born in the year of rabbit and always considered rabbit as her ‘favorite pet’ (though she never owned a real rabbit), calls herself, Rabbit.
Rabbit started a foodie blog Rabbit Can Cook on August 2011 to challenge herself, to see if she could successfully cook her Mom’s special homemade food, with varieties of international recipes. A few months later, she incorporated the art of designing bentos (Japanese decorated lunch boxes). Rabbit’s bento designs are something to see and admire (#1~100 & #101~ ).
Over 300 recipes later (of which 170 are bentos), in May 2013, Rabbit started a new blog,
Rabbit Can Bake showcasing her new found passion, baking, the intricate art of Japanese deco-rolls! Rabbit loved the idea and challenge of creating something cute and unique, and her motto is ‘to bake and create something that brings a smile to the eater’s face, joy to their taste bud and happiness to their belly’!
I am hopping with delight to introduce Rabbit as my first ‘dessert’ Guest Post presenter.
When my friends saw my cute deco-roll cakes, intrigued, they wanted to taste for themselves, as well as to send as gifts. Further showing interest by asking for other design and flavor varieties, I decided to create another blog to commercialize/showcase photo galleries for the fans to see the options and choose from. I appreciate your visit to my new blog, Rabbit Can Bake and please leave me your thoughts.
At my baking course, I am learning more than deco-rolls. We are learning all kinds of dessert bakings, and for this guest post, I picked to present Almond Tuile.
