Rainbow Chiffon Cake


Have you ever received phone calls on your cellphone, from any banks, offering you this programme, that scheme and whatsoever? Well, I have, a couple of times. They will first ask, may i speak to so and so, and when you said you are the person, then they will ask you, can you spare some time to hear to what they have to say... right?

Well my problem is, everytime I said, I am busy and I have no time to spare, they said they will call back. And when I said there is no need to call as I am not interested, they said, it's okay, we will call you back. Gosh... they never give up huh?

Indeed she called again, using another number! When she introduced herself as Miss X from Bank Y, I said, sorry I am not interested as I am just a housewife with no income. She kept talking and I kept answering, i am not interested in banks. Then she said, if I said I am not interested in banks, then don't I have any bank accounts? Goodness... whatever bank accounts I have and how many bank accounts that I hold is my personal matter and I don't have to tell the whole world right? Gosh... I almost lost my patience. What's more, that time my mind was fully occupied with a sick mom, a child sitting for exam and my medical check up to worry about! I can understand, that is part of their job but sometimes they just have to be careful when choosing their words..... But I am sure I wasn't rude with her, I just said my final 'not interested', sorry and thank you and I hung up.....


Stumbled upon the lovely looking Rainbow Chiffon Cake at DG's Blog quite sometime ago. Copied it down and forgotten all about it until last Sunday. I thought had enough with chiffons because the latest Oreo Blueberry Chiffon Cake that I made last Saturday, using the very same recipe as this one, didn't turn out as I want it to be. I don't really know what went wrong. I was kind of frusterated. But being me, I won't give up easily and yes... I dare myself to try another chiffon recipe. I made the right decision.

Thank you to DG of Tested and Tasted for sharing this lovely recipe from her Kevin Chai’s book ‘Chiffon Cake is done’. The cake turned out lovely and it is not only me saying that but everyone who tasted it said so. The recipe below is how I had done the cake. To see the original recipe and also the adjusted recipe by DG, please visit her lovely blog ya.
