Can you see the air pockets in my chiffon cake?? i must hv over folded my batter hence bursting the pockets of air.. oh well.. there are days where things turn out well and there are days where they dont! The texture of this chiffon is surprisingly soft, light with a mild taste of cream cheese.. almost feels like you are eating those feather light cheesecakes?? Hairi likes it!
