Thoughts on getting back to blogging, and a cake

It was not fun being away from blogging on and off for about 2 years. There were lingering thoughts in the back of my mind about recipes to share, stories to tell, and photos to capture. In the year before I went missing from the blogosphere, I made the most friends I ever did in a span of 365 days, and loved it. We exchanged emails, made phone calls, shared laughter, recipes, everyday ups and downs, all the while learning a thing or two from each other. Thank you folks, you have touched my life in more ways than you think.

When I look into my routine now, I realize that there is just enough time to accommodate blogging into it. After all, you are only as busy as you think you are. Life’s little rushes will keep on catching me at times, but I will try to post as often I can. Please stay tuned. Just for a start, here is a cake I made for our wedding anniversary this year. My mind was set on a coral color chiffon wedding sari from the Sixties that I saw a while ago, very similar to the ones those charming leading ladies draped around and danced on in the Hindi movies from that period.

Heart cake

Happy anniversary V&S !

To Pramila, Thank you.

What a lovely cake! Wishing you many more happy returns of the wonderful day Archana! The cake looks draped in a wonderful coral silk. The flowers etched and the beads that decorate the borders were wonderful enough to say 'Gorgeous'!

Hi Archana!

My mum just stumbled upon your blog today and sent it to me! We're just getting into cake decorating and we really love your cakes/cookies/treats!
I had a question for you. The pink heart cake that you made is lovely and I was wondering how you did the flowers that are all over the cake (the white ones). Was that with icing (buttercream or royal) or was that with fondant? They look amazing!

Happy Baking
