This is what happens when I don't have a particular design in mind.
My mind goes blank when it's slow at work and there aren't new challenges to face. This month is quiet. Not much is going on except for a handful birthday celebrations.
This cake I made for a guest on her birthday was simple. It's a chocolate cake frosted with vanilla butter icing. I couldn't decide what to do with it as my mind was still unfocused as a result of over-resting during my two-day off.. Then I thought chocolate butter cream would do the trick so I played it by ear. I started piping around the cake until all the sides were covered and here's the result. I didn't think of it as a beautifully decorated cake but others thought the opposite. It was elegant, someone remarked. I was one happy baker.
