Rose cake by Pedlars of Sunshine



Here's a photo of the rose pink cake I made last weekend, on a special order for my Aunt's birthday. It is a 3 layer victoria sponge - layers of moist butter cake with raspberry jam and buttercream filling.

I had so much fun making this cake, and it was a smashing success at the party. Yay!

I'm back! but just for a little while... and only because I wanted to update you on what I've been up to :)

One of the things that really gives me great joy is Baking. yes, with a capital B.

It started off as a weekend thing, making cupcakes for  G to take to school and  birthday cakes for the people I love.

But.

In the last few years, I've had so many requests that I sell the cakes I bake, and so many complaints and moans along the lines of "why can't you sell these cakes?"

The obvious answer was of course that I am a full time lawyer and mom, and I don't have:
a. the time
b. the shop
c. the delivery services

Well, all these reasons were demolished very effectively by my eatership (isn't that a great word? Thanks CC) , and I've finally set up my ONLINE CAKE SHOP!!!! So exciting

Truly! I kid you not.

Its called Pedlars of Sunshine and its on Facebook for the moment, while I try and get the blog up. You may get there by clicking here

After setting up the fb page, I realised I didn't have any photos of all the cakes I've baked over the years ("tsk, tsk, if only I had dusted off this blog earlier", you say. And you're right of course).

So my poor eatership has to put up with me baking a new cake every weekend to post. The hardship they endure, I tell you...

Anyway, go like my page, and you will be entitled (for a very limited time only), to a free cupcake (which you will  have to pick up).

wonder

Wow! I'm back here after almost 6 years... I'll be 40 soon (can't really believe that.)

Still the same person I was then, except I've stopped being Supergirl.

Have grown up and am now Wonder Woman :)


Gitanjali's 10 this year (!!) and Alysha will be 11. Inara turned 7 today. Nandika's joined their gang, and they are part of my gang.

One change is that I am no longer a goddess based in Brickfields.

Have officially become a resident of PeeJay. Still a lawyer. But nowadays I'm also a bit of a baker. Never did have that 2nd child, but I now have 3 dogs (except on school holidays, when Gitanjali joins them, and I have 4 dogs)

I have a garden swing, which I use a lot. I still like dresses and books.

Ketchup soon!
