WHO doesn’t love a delicious piece of cake? Cakes are often made from flour, sugar, eggs, and butter. They are usually baked and decorated with fruits, icing and cream.
From chocolate molten lava cakes to cheesecakes and classic butter cakes, these delicious desserts make great snacks.
Birthday cakes originated from Germany during the 14th century.
Back then, cakes were eaten during weddings and it was exclusively for the rich. Over the years, bakeries began to sprout, selling cakes for birthdays and other important celebrations.
Recently, we asked readers to submit letters on the topic, Delicious Cakes. Let’s hear what they have to say.
“My favourite cake is strawberry flavoured. I like cakes that are round and decorated with strawberries,” says Taneshwari Kovellan, 10.
Loh Yee Lin, nine, loves to have a personalised cake for her birthday every year.
Nurul Najwa, 12, wants to have a chocolate cake for her birthday. “I want blueberries and cream in it. I would also like to have my name written on the cake.”
“I like to celebrate my birthday. The best part is blowing out the candles on my birthday cake,” says Gladys Haw, nine.
ITEM: The rainbow is a beautiful natural phenomenon. Rainbows happen when sunlight and rain combine in a special way. Sunlight is actually made up of different colours.
When a beam of sunlight comes down to Earth, the light is white. But if the light beam hits raindrops on the way down at a certain angle, the different colours that make up the beam separate so that we can see them in the form of a rainbow.
A rainbow has seven colours. They are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. What is your favourite colour? Tell us what you know about rainbows. You can also write a short story on rainbows. Don’t forget to send us a drawing, too.
All letters must carry your full name, age (open to children aged 12 and below), gender, e-mail, phone number and address. Please write your name behind the drawing and the topic, Beautiful Rainbows ,on the envelope. All letters must reach us by June 30. Send your letters to:
