I almost wanted to settle for THIS cake that i saw at Honey Bee Sweets. i was intrigued with the blossom rosette. Is't it absolutely beautiful? Anyone will fall in love with such pretty cake, so will my mum!
But then..., I wanted a cake that signified longevity in the number of 80, just like the unforgettable 21st birthday we once had.
So I concluded, 80 = longevity = 寿桃, at least for the old folks. So, along that line, I finally draft out the image in mind.
I thought it should be easy peasy since i have done many celebration cakes before, what is another!
I'm all so wrong!!! I went out the whole day shopping and spent my wee hours baking the cakes.
The next day was a big rush in between with kitchen mishap, it always happens when time is running out! Then, i realised i still have to bake another cake to make up the height of the 寿桃! There goes my poor planning.
When eventually i got to frost the cake, it was a difficult task! To create the different colour tone of the peach, it was another challenge! All in all, by the time i'm done with the cake & snapped pictures of it, i have to rush off for the dinner. I din't bath and i din't had my lunch...
Yet the moment when i saw my siblings took out their cam and all the wow..WOW... snapping away with praises of my cake and THAT heart-felt smile on my mum, all the tiredness just diminished! Hey! its worth every effort!
Present this cake for the love of my life...my mum.
