Funscrape had a chance to ask Grace some interesting questions about her, this marvelous cake, and other creations of hers.

When asked how she came up with the idea for this cake, Grace told us this: “Jelly cakes are a really popular dessert in East Asian cuisine, but usually the designs just involve flowers and other botanicals. I love the look of regular jelly cakes, and it almost looks like suspended pools of water! So I was inspired to use the jelly cake method to imitate a pond, and I thought koi fish would fit in perfectly with that theme.”

“I make mousse cakes fairly often, and it’s my family’s favorite type of cake, so I decided to combine the two for the best aesthetics/taste,” Grace told us.

Just look at this astonishing creation!

“The cake took two days start to finish, maybe 20 working hours! Mostly it involved waiting for the layers of mousse and jelly to set, and making the koi and lilies took a while too,” the baker told us.

In fact, this cake was a gift for her father: “I made it as a Father’s Day gift and he loved it”

When asked how Grace got into baking and cooking, she said this: “I’ve always loved the idea of baking and picked up a lot by watching food network shows and eventually YouTube! My parents have quite traditional East Asian tastes, so they never really baked while I was growing up. So everything I do is self-taught from a lot of trial and error.”
