Sometimes, just sometimes messy things look so sexy. Sometimes, just sometimes messy things look so delicious. And in these few instances the messy sexy looking, delicious looking things are actually so so so tasty.
Like this cake, how messy does it look? like someone just took 3 amazing tasting things and threw them together to form heaven…… in my mouth!
Last week one of my brothers, Nyaga, asked me to make for him a birthday cake that was not my signature dark chocolate cake. He also did not want my carrot cake which every single person loves why? because others had already gotten him both cakes on his actual birthday. He wanted something different for his party. I was quite lost. I had no idea where to start. By Friday I still had no idea what to make and the party was on Saturday. I thought of a black forest cake but LORD that was just too much work for me, I thought of asking my neighbour, friend and baker Angie to make me a cake I even called her. But before I could pay I saw this cake on my Facebook timeline. It looked magnificent!
The post was by my girl Freshiah who recently started a blog Just Fresh Bakes and she makes these amazing cakes. And when I saw her post I had a eureka moment. I had all the ingredients for the cake just needed to buy some stuff for the icing and BAM! my brothers cake will be ready. And not only that since I was making layered cake it would be a great post for or Onja post this month.
Its pretty easy and way cheaper than buying it. I did a 2 kg cake. Keep reading you will be amazed how much it cost me.
