Thanksgiving, Birthday, Baking, City Festivites

Spread the love

I’m putting the smiles to play. They come naturally to me 🙂

Kill with kindness. Smile. 

Ignore other people’s naive and incorrect assumptions. Smile.

Coming to some caking and baking. 

Earlier that day, I spent making a cake for the birthday girl.  I tried this three tiered cake – chocolate, coffee and vanilla.  With three different shades of rose flowers. My cakes were too thin or the icing in between was too thin to accommodate all the three layers on the side, so the white ended up being on the top.

The kitchen was a mess and I wasted tonnes of pastry bags because they would just tear up.  I couldn’t figure out why.

I learnt that piping icing is more difficult than it seems online.  Practice will eventually get me there, but it’s trying until then.

This designer dhokla that I made was a great hit.  Parchment paper lined the steaming container and made flipping the dhokla out much easier.

This was followed by the Thanksgiving dinner.

That Friday started with a foot rub in the city, followed by a long lunch at Dosai, for the birthday girl, followed by some strolling around.

 Lord and Taylor‘s decorative greens and lights called for some photos there with the friends.
