baekseolgi -

Baekseolgi (백설기) is a kind of tteok made from steamed rice powder dough.

These cakes are usually eaten at special occasions in Korean society, such as the 21st day after a child is born (samchil-il) or exactly 100 days after one family member dies.

The white color of baekseolgi symbolizes purity and purity. This cake was initially limited to being eaten by family members only, but has now been made in various events to share with neighbors or others.
