Red As In A Red Velvet

A Red Velvet Cake with Mascarpone and Cream Cheese Frosting, topped with Maraschino Cherries...



It's "Happy Birthday Mama"- script written in Malay as requested by my friend.


I went red with the red velvet this time. I have just got this design in my mind. Last week, on Tuesday, my friend, Ms Siti Nor Siah gave me a call. She is celebrating her birthday on Monday- 28 February, 2011. She was actually in a confinement period. She asked me to bake a cake. A red velvet. I asked her again, "Are you sure you wanted a Red Velvet? It's cream cheese frosting". Well, in Malay culture, it's going to be a 100 day-confinement period after delivery. Nonchalantly, she replied- "It's okay. I am all right." (Well not exactly in her own words, it's just that I've summarised her answer..heheh). She requested no Hawaiian coconut and no candles with script written in Malay. So, I did as what she had asked. Tempting to frost the red velvet with my favourite Hawaiian Coconut. It took me nearly two hours to frost this cake. Being me, I wanted it to be perfect all the way long. I wanted the red velvet to receive the best treatment as it was always on the Red Velvet. I owed this cake a lot, I have baked this red velvet since the year 2008, perfecting the recipe as time goes by, and it has always been first love...My first ever client for this cake was my friend, Faraniza - (http://www.farawmdean.blogspot.com/). Since then, I was hooked too on baking. Well, red means love, as in the red velvet baked with such enthusiasm and passion.



Happy Tuesday, everyone....


P/S : Red Velvet baked up to this day- 10....
