Summer half term has just started. I started it with a cake baking and decorating. This is for a couple’s son who has his birthday during Easter but is celebrating it with his friends today. We met this couple just a week back at a friend’s place. The lady who is Kashmiri, is married to a Marathi gentleman. This is kind of same as my brother. He too, is married to a Kashmiri. When I met this couple at my friend’s place, I do not why but it forced me to think about my brother and his wife in their place.I imagined them 10 years from now, mature(my bro is going to bash me….don’t take me wrong, he is mature and so is his wife),grown up talking to their kid. It is quite a nostalgic feeling in all to see your kid sibling grown up, married and taking all the responsibilities in life. Back to the cake:)
This is a chocolate sponge, with chocolate buttercream filling. I used the Manchester United colours of yellow,red, black and white buttercream for this cake. I must mention, my son(who is a Chelsea fan) was my strictest critic! As I struggled with the logo, he visited me by my table and commented couple of things which have actually helped the cake look better.
