Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and is also 'yuan xiao' (元宵) meaning the 15th night the end of the Chinese New Year. It is also known by many as Chinese Valentine's Day. So how do you celebrate this special day with your loved ones?
For this year, I made a Strawberry roll with rose petal jam. The rose petal jam in the cake gave a sweet floral rose fragrance which combines well with fresh strawberries. I also added some heart shape chocolate at the sides of the cake. The souffle sponge cake recipe was adapted from my favourite cookbook Okashi, Sweet Treat Made with Love. This recipe is very easy to follow and it takes about an hour to make this cake including the decoration. A perfect tea time treat for someone special. Happy Valentine's Day!
