Japanese Dessert —Origin of Castella Cakes
Japanese dessert —— the origin of Castella cake. In the 17th century, Portuguese businessmen traveled across the oceans to Nagasaki.

The birth of the Middle Ages — Souffle. Why do people invent this kind of shufuli? It makes people feel like they have nothing to eat after eating. This is relative to the social atmosphere of greed and desire at that time. At that time, the rich people spent more time eating than working.
Usually there were three or four people’s dinners, dozens or twenty dishes, which were too much to eat up. At last, all the guests moved their knives and forks with meaning. And tasted and stopped. After the banquet, the whole afternoon, only the sound of burping heard one after another. The social phenomenon of “burping in the afternoon” lasted for half a century. And it didn’t come to an end until it caused such a long history of the social cleaners. “Even the” nothingness “could not escape materialization. And suffered the fate of collapse because of excessive expansion. However, the chefs were afraid of the over-inflated nothingness materialism. And it will be like a prediction that the fate of collapse will never escape. So I try every means to make shufuli keep the original appearance of elegance and fluffy. That was before it served to the guests.
Fluffy Taste — Chiffon Cakes
Fluffy taste — Chiffon Cake. Cakes usually have Sponge cake and Chiffon Cake. Chiffon refers to a kind of cloth, which is like Silk t silk. Sponge cake completely relies on killing eggs to form pores in the tissue of the cake. Typical sponge cake only contains eggs, flour and sugar. The taste is strong and dense, and it is easy to feel choked throat when eating (compared with Chiffon Cake). Chiffon Cake is an improved sponge method, which invented by an American chef. Besides eggs, flour and sugar, vegetable oil and water are also added in it. It is to increase the moisture of tissues. That can make the taste fluffy and moist. But because the batter is wet and not easy to expand, BP should added to help the batter foam and expand. You need to climb up the wall of the baking mold when baking.
Otherwise the batter will not grow high, the cake will be flat, and the tissue will be a little hard and free of pores. The product of evergreen — Helveticroll. It is a kind of sponge cake, which was first introduced to the United States from Switzerland. In 1960s that “American wheat Association” promoted this kind of cake to Taiwan. Because it is popular for a long time, it is a very common pastry in Taiwan. Almost every West Point bakery must have evergreen products. It is the place where Taiwanese first found it was in Switzerland. The highest quality in the cake is mousse cake. This cake originated from the food capital-Paris, France. It has very strict requirements in temperature control and raw material ratio. Rich changes are in color and structure, more natural and pure taste.

Mixing Methods and Batter Properties of Cakes
Cakes can be generally divided into three categories. That is according to their raw materials, mixing methods and batter properties. ① Batter cake. The amount of oil used in the formula is up to 60% of the flour. It used to lubricate the batter, produce soft tissue. And help the batter fuse a large amount of air in the mixing process to produce swelling effect. Generally, cream cakes and pudding cakes belong to this category. ② milk foam cake: the formula features that the main raw material is eggs without any solid oil. Make use of the tough and denatured protein in the egg liquid. And make the cake loose during the mixing and baking process of the batter. Besides, they can divide into protein category of single protein such as angel cake. And sponge category of whole egg (such as sponge cake).
③ Chiffon Cake: it formed by changing the organization of the Cake by mixing two kinds of batter and milk foam. An American cake designer said the following. For me, most of the cost is labor. Make a general cake for 150 people. From meeting new people, bake cakes, it takes me 25 to 40 hours to carve to assemble and decorate the cake. You start to look at the pictures of the cake, try to be realistic. Otherwise it may exceed your economic strength. Sometimes some newcomers want to make a cake like what they see in magazines. They don’t know that it is 10 dollars per piece. It is impossible to make the same cake at the price of 2.5 dollars. People must find out whether the cake publish in the magazine and whether it is a brand cake.
The Decoration of Cakes
Next, let’s talk about sugar-coated clothes. They are the general names of some nouns like cakes. Handmade Dough sugar-coated is much more expensive than white cream. Because it contains a lot of Labor. Dough sugar-coated is very special because it is a labor-intensive product. Cream does not mean low quality. You can change different styles with cream, and it is easy. Using cream can make the appearance of the cake smooth. The cake covered with a chocolate coat-this is a major feature. It is more expensive than cream. Rubber adhesive or spice additives, flowers, often need to be hand-made. These have also increased the price of cakes. The more peculiar the flowers are, the higher the price is. So how to save costs? Use less sugar flowers instead of flowers. The best way to influence the style of a cake is to embellish it with flowers.
The size of the cake will affect its price, but the cake designer has put forward several suggestions. Sometimes the cake maker will make a smaller cake with a small piece of cake, or fill it with ice cream and berries. If the newcomer uses a simple dining car or a small table, it recommends to use a smaller cake. You can also use cakes with large bases at large weddings. The smaller cake enables the newcomers to buy the cake suitable for them, which is a little smaller. If you buy a three-layer cake for 100 people to enjoy. Plus four ten-inch cakes, you can only spend 100 dollars to meet the needs of another 100 people. Otherwise, you need to spend more than 300 dollars. Newcomers are more aware of reducing costs. If there is a cake maker at your reception site, you bring another one yourself.
