It's my 4-year anniversary with my boyfriend tomorrow. When he was still here, I used to bake a cake for us every year. This year I'm not baking anything special since he's not here to celebrate our anniversary with me :( It's kind of sad, but thank God for Skype so I can still see him ^^
This morning, my friend suddenly texted me and requested a cake for our friend's birthday tomorrow. Well, I don't get to bake a cake for my anniversary, at least I can bake a pretty cake for someone's birthday. I can't make mousse cake because it takes too much time and eating it off a piece of paper towel (which is what we usually serve the cake on during birthday gatherings) is troublesome. Hence, I go with a simple chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting instead. Everyone likes chocolate and cream cheese, right? The cake part is easy, but what about decoration? It's for a guy's 20th birthday, so I can't put girly stuffs on the cake. Oh I know.. Pirouline cookies! I just make a fence-like structure around the cake with pirouline and decorate the top with pieces of chocolate and fruits.. Easy, sophisticated, and pretty :D
And to my boyfriend who is thousands of miles away, it would say "Happy Anniversary" on the cake if only you were here -______-"
