Cakes - My Obsession
Would also need to admit one more thing,the basic cake recipe I have used has been the same. There have been very few times, I have ventured to try out a new basic cake recipe. The others I have tried have not been entirely successful(palatable though), so those did not make to my make do, make believe turn table to don any decoration at all. But I have found that this recipe works quite well for me, as the cake tastes quite good. And once I have a decent basic cake, the decorating part is of paramount importance to me.
It is amazing how many different flavored cakes, different desserts can be whipped up from a basic recipe. And as for decoration,your imagination is the limit. And for the less creative like me, just get inspired from somebody else's creativity :-)
Talking about 'inspiration', made this cake from Tarla Dalal's Cakes and Gateaux. This was an Orange Gateaux for hubby's birthday.
