What kind of ingredients are in this chocolate cheesecake that you're talking about?

'Ingredients' are food materials that you use to make something in particular. The ingredients for a sandwich would be meat, cheese, tomato and lettuce.  Notice the following:

  1. I wanted to make cookies, but I didn't have all the ingredients.
  2. She always uses fresh ingredients to make pizza.


What kind of utensils or equipment do you need to make this cake?

A utensil is a tool that is used for cooking or eating, such as a spatula or a fork. Notice the following:

  1. Do you have a spoon?  I forgot to bring a utensil for my salad.
  2. There aren't any clean utensils in the house.  Please wash some.


You also need a whisk and you need a bowl.

A whisk is a utensil used to mix liquid ingredients, such as eggs and oil, by stirring them rapidly. Notice the following:

  1. First, mix the egg and the sugar with a whisk.
  2. You must move the more rapidly or the bread will not be good.

fold in

You add the condensed milk to the cream with the fork very slowly, you fold it in.

Folding in is adding a new ingredient gently by covering it with the other ingredients already in the bowl. Notice the following:

  1. Fold the nuts into the dough very carefully.
  2. First add the chocolate pieces and then fold them into the batter.


It involves skill. It's quite delicate.

Something delicate is fragile or easy to destroy, such as a flower or a snowflake.  Notice the following:

  1. The dough is very delicate.  If you mix it too long, you won't succeed.
  2. The cookie was very light and delicate, perfect to eat with tea.
