Yummy cakes

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Family - Gla­dys Haw, 9

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:
