Halo Lemon Cream for Christmas Holidays

Halo (a.k.a spun toffee) with Santa Hat

No Eggs, No Butter, No Gelatin (most importantly) - I tell u why.

So This is a yum cold dessert , so creamy with tangy tinge of lemon, bit of sweetness .. taste like yogurt !

I like the colour of spun sugar , golden caramel , so attractive ! so not easy to make. My 1st time of making this , so out of control! should really learn and practice how to spin" the toffee ! see my so called 'out of control' toffee !

I sprinkle more lemon zest before eating this. very yum! taste like lemon yogurt.

*Oh i like this recipe because no gelatin! I am not a gelatin person. but I like panna cotta. ( and not all panna cotta is good! too much gelatin will spoil) too much gelatin , i feel like eating fake dessert. U know if too much gelatin, when spoon to mouth, I need to make my 'panna cotta' melt in my mouth for a second, let my body temperature melts the cream before I can swallow! that is the moment I really dont like! very eyewwww ! but this recipe is not! really smoooth

80g (or less) sugar
