Florence's blog when was i secretly stalking her blog, ha! It's really not difficult to make this 'fish nian gao' but of course, you would have to get the mould, i've also seen moulds which comes with the word ‘福', means good luck ..that's also a good one to make for chinese new year. But just take note if you were to make this to give to someone, i would suggest you give it in a pair but not four. Using florence's recipe with my mould ( 23cm in diameter) , i got 8 fishes.
