So I feel extremely terrible for not having updated this space. However, due to the crazy workload I have in school, updating the blog has kinda taken a backseat 🙁
Last month, I celebrated my 21st birthday. It was a really great one, with two birthday parties & a nice 2nd runner-up in an internal case competition. Although I aged 10 years within two weekends (of not sleeping for about 30 hours each time), I gotta say that I learnt a lot and that it was a very fulfilling experience.
Since then, I’ve had to submit assignments, catch up with tons of work & I’m probably currently going a little bit crazy haha. Recess week is next week but even then, I won’t be having much of a holiday 🙁
So here’s the cake I’ll be talking about today – Orange Sponge with decadent cream cheese frosting. So what happened for my birthday was that my mom baked the cake and I did the frosting + decorating. I didn’t want to stress myself to make my own birthday cake and since my mommy bakes so well (Y)
The first one was rectangle shaped with three layers. I had so little time so I just sprinkled coconut on the sides to cover up anything haha. The second was meant to be a tall cake. I had great ideas for the cake but the heat of Singapore just made my fondant flowers slide off. The worst part was that when we reached the restaurant, the whole cake had lopsided to one side and it was as though my entire birthday cake had just been destroyed :'( Thankfully, my brilliant sissy and mom managed to fix it (I think it still looks decent, yea?)
