  1. Hi sis, don u know how to do the sticky sugar syrup for floss buns? I did try to mix mayonise with condensed milk but the taste not really the same as bakery shop.pls advise.thks!

    1. Hi Weiwei, I think the bakery version is to melt butter with sugar to prepare the sticky syrup. I have a mock mayonnaise which I think is healthier. You can leave out the lemon juice to have a more milky flavour 😊
