This is a dark purple velvet cake which I prepared as my gift to the most important woman in my life.Some of you have already noticed that I love baking. There's something in it that draws my attention. In addition, it's always a challenge preparing a cake because it involves some key preparation, time and a dash of imagination.

  • Hello, Ann!

    You made me smile! It's always exciting to learn something new when it comes to baking or cooking. I choose to be optimistic especially if I'd like to try a new recipe. With patience, your husband would be able to prepare something that you'd also be proud of.

    Thank you for the compliment and welcome back!

  • Hi, Onee!

    I don't think I can compete with Senior Estanis! He's the boss he he! But it's nice to hear the term 'master chef'. I'd love to be an expert cook in my own kitchen. :) Sorry, I missed your comment.

    Wishing you a sweet December!

    I think you're very good at this. I saw the cake you made so often here. Oh, hats off to the master chef. :))

  • I couldn't agree more, Estanis! Mary is such a people person. She could handle all the customers' queries he he. :)
