Don’t worry, you’ll be seeing a lot more birthday posts.
It’s the birthday season (and a lot of them happen to be close friends of mine, so..).
Oh, you know them by now. Scroll down below. The only new addition is Pija 🙂
There’s something wrong with this picture. Nevermind, I’ll give you some time to figure it out.
The first time I made steamed red velvet I had to ask Mimi to alter the batter for me. The second time it was too salty (it’s the colouring’s fault pffft). And the 3rd time, success!! They say the 3rd time’s a charm 🙂
The birthday girl tadaaaaa! And Aida’s messy room tadaaa!
The thing with red velvet is this; don’t hold back on the colouring.
Red velvet is basically choc cake with less cocoa and cream cheese icing. Some recipes might add buttermilk and such, but that’s the principle. So to make a choc cake red in colour, you gotta chuck in a lot of colouring.
As for the topping, well. I was in a rush as I had to be somewhere so I put the second layer before it’d completely cooled down. It being a steamed cake (which means it has a softer texture), it cracked!!!! Omg I was basically hyperventilating. My cake never cracked before ok!
The supermarket had closed so I rushed to Aida’s house. She didn’t have any chocolate bar but she did have Oreo. So I crushed the biscuits and covered the cracks. Surprisingly it went well with the cake 😀
My god I could write an essay on this cake alone.
With Kepijaan!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Ok, remember the question I asked in the second picture? It’s ok I’ll tell you the answer.
I WAS WEARING FLATS T__T
Everyone else was wearing well, everything not heels, so out of respect for the birthday girl, I wore flats. This is my only pair btw *sighs*
