Food tips

1. Peppermint paste is a kind of seasoning for Western food. It should be used in salads, but it works well in cakes. If you can’t buy it, you can’t use it. Creme de menthe (green) and mint are also very strong, and a mint essence is also available in dessert if it happens to be available.

2. If you want mint leaves to be neatly placed under the mirror jelly layer, you need to soak some mint leaves in hot water for a few seconds, straighten and place them on the surface of the cake, and then pour in the liquid of the mirror jelly layer twice. For the first time, pour a little less, freeze and solidify first, and then pour the rest.
