3. When cool, draw with the chocolate decorating pen on the steamed buns. This is my son's drawing of his mum and dad.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made cookies with shaved ice syrup. I was wondering if I could use the syrup for something else and though of making steamed buns with it. It's colorful, so my son loves it. I gave him a decorating pen, and he started to draw on the buns. It would make a nice gift, especially with decorating pens, for a family with kids.
