Milestones – Vanilla-Orange Chocolate cake

I almost missed it. By pure luck, I checked and realised it was today.

Coriander and Garlic is one year old today! 

OMG! OMG! OMG! I’m still here? I’m still here!! To be fair, I did go MIA for a bit in the middle of it but hey, I’m still here.  This is the bit where I get a little emotional.

Thank you everyone for taking the time to read this thing here I call a blog. Kowtows to you lovely folks who subscribe to me. And a big giant wet smooch for my blogger friend Bonnie, for being SO supportive. I can always count on you to have my (blogging) back. Guys, seriously, check out her page, Thirstyfortea.com. Mad skills she has, this woman.

How else could I possibly celebrate this milestone but to bake a cake, right? It’s just been sweet sweet sweet around here lately. My pantry’s running low on sugar as a result. But this is necessary! We only turn one once!

Rainbow cake

A unicorn pooped on my platter – Rainbow cake

I know! I know! The rainbow cake has been done to DEATH. But…….it’s a rainbow cake! You know you want to make one too. For a first attempt, I got to say, it turned out pretty damn good! *pat on the back* Also, I kind of made a promise here that I would. This was not baked for the same cause I promised it for though, so watch this space.

The rainbow cake has been on my to-bake list for the longest, longest time. Ever since I saw it on Sweetapolita 3 years ago. I promised myself that I will one day bake it for my daughter’s birthday and see her face when I cut out the first slice. I finally got around to it and it was totally worth the 3-year wait. Oh the satisfaction…..*blissful sigh*

Mango Sago

Such a nag – Mango Sago

So this is what they call a writer’s block. I have opened this window at least five times the last two weeks but closed it each time empty. Nope. Nothing. Nada. Haven’t a clue what to write. Until today. About time too!

I had a revelation today. Nagging works. As a kid, my mum would nag at me till she turned blue in her face but I would just carry on as I were. I often wondered why she bothered since it obviously didn’t work. She still nags at my sister today and having been in both positions as the nagger and the “naggee”, I got to say I feel sorry for my mum more. It’s very very frustrating. But nagging works! Ok, not always and it depends on who you’re nagging at but it DOES work.
