My first partner of the Shhhhh event, sangee aks.  And we were very happy, and excited J She gave me two secret ingredients, and they are Foxtail Millet/Thinai and Corn flour. When she given the ingredients, I have no clue what to prepare and suddenly bake, strikes in mind. So, I was stick on bake and even my first trial of the cake with the millet ends up with error L but I never give up and I want to do it successfully. +Sangee aks supports me well and love the challenge with her and Thanks Sangee aks...J
