Salad Oil, I believe, refers to vegetable oil (direct translation from mandarin), which you can replace with soya bean oil or sunflower oil if you cannot find. The oil takes the place of butter/margarine...you don't want the green tea cake to smell of butter/margarine.

Small soda might be a reference to a pinch of baking soda? :dunno: The one that comes in small dark blue cardboard bottles.

Cheers

That's the outlet that they have a kitchen with lecture room set up for conducting cake-baking lesson.

another shop outlet is at Hougang Central.

The answer is "No" :nono: for both questions.

Using margarine in place of oil will change the taste, smell, texture and color of the cake.

Cheese powder is so completely different from cream cheese that I can't imagine the results of substituting one for the other. :bsmilie:

Just visit one of the baking supply shops and talk to the people there. In every one I've been to the staff have been friendly and more than willing to advise, after all, it's more business for them.

Cheers

dun liddat ler, not tt their job v glam. jus approach them 2 ask mah, but keep in mind tt not every staff tt knowledgeable. if they r tt gd in baking they'd likely b working somewhere else already. since u there might as well ask, dun waste ur trip there. :think:
