About the participant

Hello, I am a teenager and I am having my vacation break currently. My family loves eating cake, but I find that cakes sold commercially are too sweet and oily. The cakes are often dressed in cream which makes it even more unhealthy. It is my first time exploring baking a cake using the rice cooker. I would like to explore more and try out different desserts for my family!
