    How do you make strawberry paste or blueberry paste. I couldn’t find any store selling it.

    Hey Jean! I just found out about your blog and I must say, your stuff are absolutely amazing! I was just wondering, can I make this in a steamer? I’m planning to make this for my sister’s birthday ,but I don’t have an oven.

      Both types can be used. Cake flour would be a better choice.
