Kuo Yuan Ye Museum of Cake and Pastry

I'm getting lazier to write and post anything recently. Beside i have nothing to write about also i haven't cook anything unusual or fancy. It caused by the weather.... it's so cold in past few days. I'd rather cover myself up on the bed, than doing cleaning and washing around my kitchen.
Last night, a friend called me and asked if i'm interested in a tour to Kuo Yuan Ye Museum of Cake and Pastry. Woww....i jumped up from the bed, i come.
Kuo Yuan Ye founded and started their bussiness in 1867. Their first museum established in 2001 located in Yangmei - Taoyuan county and the second is in Shilin - Taipei county. Now, they are considered as one of the best pastry maker in Taiwan. We learn how to make Taiwanese pineapple shortcake (fong li shu), with the main ingredients flour, butter, sugar, coconut milk for pastry dough and pineapple, wintermelon, sugar for pastry filling.
This is the first time i tasted their pineapple shortcake, the pastry has crunchy texture and buttery smell, far different with other pineapple shortcake which usually too soft or very hard. Beside pineapple, they also made strawberry, blueberry, mango, orange shortcake and many more. So, if you happen to be in Taiwan, don't miss it!!!
Here are my shortcakes with koala, bear and owl shape. It cracks everywhere....i still need more practice. As usual, i forgotten my camera so i use my cellphone for taking the pictures.
