Yes, missed your presence. Glad your back. And this is a strawberry cake as well? I think I see the icing? Or is it a basket with strawberries. If cake, lovely then.

Hey Archana
I'm really glad to see u back in action. I was waiting for updates from ur blog. BTW I tried ur rasam from Rasavada, and it turned out awesome.I served it with Idly. I make rasam similar way but never tried with garlic as i use very little garlic in my South Indian cooking. Thanks for sharing delicious recipe.

Thank you so much.

Sudha
Thank you dear, same here too. It is always a pleasure to see my old friends back and blogging .

Thank you for stopping by and letting me know that you are here. I always pipe the butter cream blossoms on to parchment paper squares and freeze it for at least 1 hour ( Doing it the day before you decorate the cake, saves a lot of time and energy) . Now you can transfer the flowers with out any problem, and the flowers will gradually thaw sitting on the cake.

Rahin
Thank you.
