I was asked to make a “girl cake” – which could mean so many things! When I find out what she meant, I went around looking for a girl mould, which I couldn’t get my hands on.

It was a tutti frutti cake, whose fragrance legitimately left you drooling every time you entered the kitchen. Yum.

Both mom and daughter were happy with the end result, as I snacked on the cake cut-offs :). Yip, just one of the perks of playing baker on these missions.
