Twenty something years ago, one of my favourite human beings came into this world. This weekend, we got to celebrate her.

I had the pleasure of baking her a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, and topped it with frangipani flowers.

I looked high and low for these flowers, as they are her favourites. I came across The Sugar Art Shop who have such a wide variety of flowers, I was stuck there for almost an hour just daydreaming of future creations!

I was quite ill last week and really wasn’t up for spending hours in the kitchen. Thankfully, this recipe is so simple and tasty, I managed to pull it off in that state. I’m happy to say that when I arrived, the cake was very well received.

Look at that focus! Haha. Better watch out when Bene Bakes cakes are involved, you’ve been warned. Heehee.

I was quite happy with end result. Dense yet fluffy, love that velvety texture!

And to you, my dear sister-friend, I wish you a gloriously successful year enveloped with the sweet scent of love that filled the air that day. Xx

Lots of that sweet stuff, B!

*Note: I made several adjustments to the recipe, as I really wanted to get a moist and fluffy sponge. I’ll share my tips with you at a later stage. Stay tuned!
