major throwback. sometime early this year.
cake orders were still closed shut, but my brother asked nicely to make a cake as hantaran to give to his fiancee. so, I had to say yes. baked my all time favourite red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, and decorated real simple. even managed to whip up a new recipe of frosting which I called “red velvet frosting”; it’s our classic cream cheese frosting enriched with cocoa powder and a hint of red food colouring. it tasted so good! not too chocolaty , just red velvety.. haha
haven’t decorated cakes for quite some time..it really shows that I’m so out of practice, but nonetheless, everybody loves the cake (or so I was told :D)
I also prepared a simple fruit and chocolate basket and placed the ring box to be presented to the bride to be. it was a simple occasion, but satisfying.
