Marbled Angkoos

I know the past few posts here had been focusing on stuff that I made/baked.  When the cooking/baking bug bites me, it's always like this!  Sometimes when I don't have the inclination or too lazy, I can stay off baking/cooking/making stuff for weeks and weeks... but when the mood hits, this is what happens!

So, for the sake of my good friend, Xara, I'm putting this up for her :-)) 

I made these a few weeks ago when I was playing around with all the lovely colours I got from natural ingredients.

I took pinches of various coloured doughs, put them all together and came out with these crazy hues!

I think I have posted about how all the various colours were derived: green from pandan, purple from sweet potatoes, pink from beetroot and how about the YELLOW?

That bright butter-yellow came from pumpkins!  

Don't you think the yellow spot really brightens up the angkoos?

I had great fun making and photographing these...

Xara, I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them :-D

So, which is your favourite one from this platter?

Hey Gurl, thanks for the marbled angkoos. Love them all with my favorite colors: purple, green, fuschia, & yellow - the one in the middle with that bright splash of yellow is really striking! Now if only we can get them past US customs...
