Hare Krishna! It’s been a long, long time that I haven’t been blogging due to various reasons., and my sincere apology to everybody. Of course, words are not enough, so as my peace offering (LOL), I present to you a very nice lecture last Narasemhadeva Caturdasi by HG Gauranga Prabhu, and I also made some cakes as my simple offering. Husband and I attended  both programs in Alachua temple. as well as in the Krishna House, were Gauranga Prabhu delivered the very nice lecture. Once again my apology, and thank you so much for the continued support for ohmyghee.com. Hare Krishna (^_^)!!!

My first try in making Hong Kong style Snow Skin Moon Cake! The green one is flavored with Pandan essence, while the pink one is coconut flavor. Both have Adzuki bean paste w/ walnuts filling. (^_^) I just followed the ingredients and procedure from this video.

However, instead of only 80 gms for both of the rice flour and the glutinous rice flour, I did 100 grams for each, since I find it kind of watery with the 200 grams of milk. Also, the red bean paste filling I use is store brought, and I added some chopped walnuts on it.

1. Use a cling wrap when you’re kneading the moon cake dough. In this way, your dough is smoother and it won’t stick to your hands.

2. For the cooked starch, I just steamed a couple tablespoon of corn starch covered with paper towel for 15 minutes.


Excuse my blurry pictures, for I don’t have a camera (it’s broken 😦 ) Instead, I took the photos via my iPhone.

Cake Pops!


It’s been a while since I baked due to our latest relocation here in Tampa, FL. As I was trying to set things up especially my schedule in our new place, I just remember that I’ve been neglecting a lot of stuff, and some of those are my love for blogging and baking. When I finally had the chance to bake, I decided to give cakeballs a try. I got the idea from a great baker and blogger Bakerella. Her creations are just to die for, and on top of that, they’re too cute to be eaten. If you want instructions on how to make this confectionary delight, just visit her blog, and I can assure that you don’t need to be a patissier to pull it off. If I can do it, you can to! Have fun!

Baking and decorating cakes are two of  my fave things in the world. For the past three years that I’d been baking and learning to decorate, I managed to accumulate couple of photos of the cakes that I made. Some are funny, some are ok, and some are even odd looking, LOL! I really enjoy baking and decorating cakes because it’s not just fun, but it’s also a stress reliever for me. To all the devotees who’s planning to embark in the world of baking and decorating cakes, you won’t regret it. It’s not just good as a source for extra income, but it can also be a good way to serve Krishna and the Vaisnavas. Hare Krishna :D.
