Creative Steamed Cupcake - 彩绘可爱蒸蛋糕

This is the latest  book written by a well-known Japan food blogger.  Ms. Junko-' Deco Steam Cake'. I am very inspired by how the Japanese present their food in such a beautiful manner.

Recipe: (Heart shape cupcake)
100 g pancake mix flour (薄饼预拌粉)
1 medium size egg
30 g Castor sugar
30 g plain yoghurt
30 ml  fresh milk
15 g unsalted butter (melted)

1 teaspoon plain flour
edible red food colouring

1) Put sugar and egg in a mixing bowl, mix well with egg whisk.
2) Add in yoghurt and milk, mix well after each addition.
3) pour pancake flour, mix and blend well, then add in melted butter, mix until mixture is well combined
4) Take 2 teaspoon mixture from (3) into a small bowl, add in 1 teaspoon of  plain flour, a drop of red colouring, and mix well..Pour the batter into a small piping bag.
5) Pour the plain cupcake batter into muffin cups with cupcake liner until 70% full. Pipe the desired pattern you like on top of each cupcakes. Tap 3 -4 times  the bottom of the muffin cup to expel the air.
6)  Steam over medium low heat for 12- 15 minutes or until cooked.
