A Delicious Birthday Treat
Nothing beats a homemade cake. The amount of time and the effort I exert on each cake I make are incomparable to the joy and satisfaction I get from hearing how guests loved my creation. It makes me proud - to think that just five years ago, I was struggling to keep up with the class where the majority has advanced baking skills. I am not an expert. I still think I need to hone my decorating skills. Now all I have to do is practice, practice, practice.
Here is what I made for a guest. The birthday girl is a friend of the resort's DJ. She wanted a chocolate cake. I made her a one pound chocolate cake, filled and frosted with chocolate butter cream. I used vanilla butter cream for the inscription and the piping on top and on the side. I like contrast. It adds beauty to it.
The simple design does not do justice. Mind you, it's the most popular among all the cakes I make.
