Not Too Sweet

The other day when my husband wired me some money, I bought a cocoa powder for me to be able to mix it with the ingredients at home so I can bake a cake. I didn’t really know what I was doing. I just follow the You Tube demo on how to bake a chocolate moist cake; I combined with the other recipe I found online. I was praying so hard that it would result all right. I was praying that if it was not a perfect cake at least it tasted as one. I also changed the measurement of some of the ingredients, which made me more nervous.

When I put it on the oven, I was crossing my finger that it would raise. When I check it the first time, I was slightly freaking out because it seems like it didn’t rise at all. But after 30 minutes I saw the improvements.  When I checked it with a toothpick the first time, it was wet. I said oh no I think it won’t cook but after few more minutes, when I checked it again, it was not wet anymore. I exclaimed finally “Success”. When I and my sister tasted it even though it was not perfect, it tasted like a cake at all even though it doesn’t have frosting because I combined all the ingredients I forgot I still need to make the moist on top but it’s okay it doesn’t matter at all, what important is that Faith likes it because it wasn’t too sweet but not dull.

Chocolate Caramel Cake From Sugar Munch

During our Fiesta, we bought a whole round of cake at the Sugar Munch. I did not plan to buy one since I want to buy more ingredients for the foods that we are going to put on our table but I realized then I didn’t have visitors and obviously we will be the only who would eat what we cooked during our fiesta. So I decided to buy a cake.

We love chocolate and so we choose this Chocolate Caramel for the whole family. The cake last only for a day. I wasn’t able to bring some at work because it is already almost finish. Oh well, we obviously like the taste of it.

Chocolate Caramel Cake is very creamy, I love how smooth and soft it is when it touches my palate. It feels like you can’t even get enough of it. It’s not that sweet, cakes are tend to be so sweet but not this and I like it. It craves you more, geez I am actually craving right now.

Classic Cake and New York Cheesecake In Starbucks

I planned to go out during Kadayawan since I filed a vacation leave for 2 days but I got stuck at home. I wanted to finish my task online right away but I need to write so many articles that I went out late already. I supposed not to go out since it is late already but I need to get the money that my husband wired us so I went out in the mall. On our way to the mall, I was craving a cake all a sudden Mariel and Mj went with me in the mall, after I picked the funds, we went to Starbucks not to grab a coffee, but we were there to buy ourselves some cakes. I ordered 2 cakes, I know we were 3 but I thought to just share the cakes with them.

My niece is already out of sight, she already went with her friends. Mj and I finish the 2 cakes, after we stayed a while in Starbucks, we went home right away.

Strawberry Shortcake Theme

Just today after I sent Faith to school instead of going back home to sleep I decided to go to All of Us Cakes. My friend from Texas is the one, who informed me about them, and she asked me then how much was the cake that Faith would like to have.

Just recently, Faith has been searching cakes in Google without me knowing it and when she found the cake that she loves. She asked me to check it right away. I was hesitant at first because I know then that the cake will be quiet expensive.

I was talking about it to my friend without any intention of having her to sponsor the cake. But later during our conversation she asked me to go to All of Us Cake and inquire for the price. I asked my niece to go there, but she was able to quote the wrong cake. And I was mistakenly informed my friend about it. Good thing though she sent me more than I asked for her so when I went there today the money she sent was just enough for the cake.

Anyway this was the cake I choose for her birthday with Faith’s desire for a theme.
