Hi Ann,Your blog always impress me….neat and beautiful bakes….keep up and and keep coming…Thanksserena fr bkk
Wow another beautiful artwork! The cake must be very fragrant.
This is pure artwork lovely post your so creative!
the cake looks marvellous, i like it so much…:)is there any replacement instead of using optima flour but still can come out with the soft and spongy sponge cake?
wow.. what a unique recipe.. I have plenty black sesame here, but I don't know if I can find the paste..
The cake looks wonderful.
Another gorgeous cake from you!! I like 芝麻糊, is a healthy choice 🙂
May i know how many inch is your square cake ring height?
What can i use if i do not have the cake ring?
Hi Jessy, I used a 8 inch cake pan for the sponge, so the cake ring is also a 8 inches too.
You can use a cake pan if you don’t have a cake ring. Line the cake pan bottom with parchment paper, then assemble the cake as instructed. Chill the cake to set and firm. Then scrape the sides of the cake with a sharp knife and cover the cake with a piece of cling wrap, follow by a cake board. Gently over turn the cake and remove it from the cake pan and turn it back to the top side with another piece of cake board.
黑芝麻对女人尤其特别好!:D黑芝麻 also help us sleep better!

Lovely and impressive cake!!! Well done, Ann!
Delicious and beautiful cake looks absolutely amazing, and special, an excellent idea, warm hugs.
@edithEdith, There is a 二姑糖水 at Chinatown complex. I remember there is another stall at Kallang Airport Rd too.
@Sherleen.THi Sherleen, TKQ! I think you can get sponge mix in Malaysia, is about the same as optima flour.
The colour scheme suits my house perfectly :)I'm learning to appreciate the taste of black sesame, so far have dared not go full scale with black sesame bakes.But the look of this cake is urging me to go ahead!
What a beauty! I love black sesame and this looks amazing! SO tempting and I want a huge piece now! Drooling here!
I love 芝麻糊. When I was young, i will go this stall along the road side in Chinatown. Such a pity that good authentic ones are all gone.
that looks perfect
This cake is superb! Very professional made!
black sesame, black truffle. yay to black! woohoo!
That's really beautiful. I have baked myself a birthday cake today and am wondering how I should decorate it. I have never really done any serious cake decoration so I might just pour the frosting on top and finish it off. This has given me some ideas though. 🙂
Dear..your another "Wow" factor cake creation. Can I like million times?
wow that looks really good. light and decadent at the same time. Love the asian flavours. 🙂 have a great week ahead!

Thanks Chris! You can also make the mousse in the cup without sponge cake.Hi Claudia, Thank you:)Thanks Shaz.Hello Serena, Thank you very much for your compliment.BoBo, Thanks for your sweet comment 🙂 My Home Diary in Turkey, the black sesame paste that I bought was imported from Japan. Maybe you can have a check at the Japanese grocery store.Thanks DG, Zoe :)Thank you Wendy. Have a try, you'll love it.
this is interesting.. love the grey tone and the decoration on the cake.. looks like a piece of Art yet so yummy..I would like to give it a try someday..thanks for sharing.
That looks surreal!!! Beautiful piece of art 🙂
Can i use black sesame powder if i do not have the paste?
If yes, how much black sesame powder i should use?
Hi Jessy, Using black sesame powder is not as fragrance as the paste. You can get the black sesame paste from the Japanese store.
This looks so pro just like a 5 star hotel bakery. Nice!
Ann, i like this cake, love the black sesame aroma, this cake must be so fragrant.
Hi Ann, is it expensive to import the cape gooseberry and how to import them? From Vicky.
Hi Vicky, Sorry I really don't know. If you're in Singapore, the cape gooseberry is available at most supermarkets.
@Murasaki ShikibuHappy Birthday Murasaki! I think simple decoration is the best. Wish to see your birthday cake 🙂

Eileen, Joelyn, J.O ~谢谢你们的赞美!赞得多。。我会不好意思的 :DDEsther,不客气。。。抹上sugar syrup,就是不要让蛋糕太干,那蛋糕就可以吃上好几天了。
Ann you have another masterpiece here! I could never imagine being able to create such thing of beauty! So I just come here and dream….of how it would taste…how it would feel or smell…imagine the looks on everyones faces when they see it in person…and so on and so on….
