Despite its simple name, preparing a portion of the cake requires a pig’s heart, requiring a lot of effort from the seller. Because a plate of cake asked for a full pig heart, it is indispensable for questionnaires, pork hearts, rice paper, raw vegetables and fish sauce. Each ingredient requires different processing stages.
To make cakes (which are specialties in the Central provinces such as Binh Dinh, Phu Yen, Phan Rang, Binh Thuan …), rice flour must be chosen from clean rice to have a milky white color. The ground rice is mixed into the flour, stirring in a hot pan until the rice flour thickens. 

The next step is considered to be the most arduous and the most arduous when the processor has to pour the cooked dough into a compression mold. The compressed cake yarn from the mold has a size slightly larger than the thread, cleverly spun on a bamboo rack that moves smoothly to make the cake thread into a string.
