The pink buns are 'huat kueh' which is steamed rice buns. The steaming process of this rice cake causes the typical 'bloom' which means prosper. This is another bun used in festive celebrations and ceremonies.
'Ang koo kueh' is the small red oval shaped cake with soft sticky skin wrapped with sweet filling in the center. The oval shaped of the cake is designed to resemble tortoise or turtle. Again, it is a symbolic cake offered during rituals like religious event, childbirth and birthday.
So what better concept to use as a cake design for my then future daughter-in-law's mother than this set?
