DIY THINGS TO DO IN TAIWAN: Pineapple Cake Making Workshop in Taipei

DIY THINGS TO DO IN TAIWAN Pineapple Cake Making Workshop in Taipei

Looking for new and unique things to do in Taiwan?


Earlier this month, we were invited by Taiwan's Travel Times to experience different DIY workshops in Taiwan. The tour is based on the OTOP (One Town One Product) activities which aim to give us hands-on experience on how to make local delicacies, souvenirs, handmade products, and local products from different towns and cities in Taiwan. I'm so happy to be back in Taiwan and glad to know that this trip will be so much different from my previous trips because we'll be doing new and unique experiences.

First in our itinerary is the Pineapple Cake Making Workshop at The Kuo Yuan Ye Museum of Cake and Pastry. Located in Shilin District, The Kuo Yuan Ye Museum of Cake and Pastry is a pastry culture and making museum in Taipei, Taiwan. It has two branches in Taiwan, one is in Shilin District, and the other in Yangmei District in Taoyuan City.

As a workshop and museum, they also have a showroom that features Kuo Yuan Ye's humble beginnings which date back to 1867 when they first built their first branch in Shilin District. It also showcases historical exhibits about Taiwanese cake and pastry making, festivals, customs and traditional folklore that will surely be a learning experience for everyone. One of the highlights of our visit is the make-your-own (DIY) activities and workshops offered by The Kuo Yuan Ye Museum of Cake and Pastry, which we truly enjoyed.

At the workshop, we were taught on the different steps in making Pineapple Shortcakes from mixing the raw ingredients, making the dough, to stuffing the Pineapple Jam into the dough, to molding the shortcake and packaging the finished product. It's my first time to do this and I truly enjoyed it. Best of all, we got to take home the pineapple cake gift box that we made as a souvenir. Yey!
