I'm in the mood for some fun this month, some excitement, some love. I'll be heading overseas for a short trip in about a week's time and I'm really getting excited about it. Imagine, no work, no worries (almost!) for one entire week...it's going to be a blast to just let my hair down and enjoy myself for the first time in months. And since I'm in such a relaxed mood, the thought of whipping up a pink and pretty dessert really appeals to me.
I came across this post on Evan's blog and was really taken in by her beautiful, gorgeous photos. This was perfect, just the right cake I had in mind. I've always adored rose flavours in desserts, especially rose-flavoured macarons. However, I've never gotten around to making something with this lovely flavour. Inspired, I used the recipe from Evan's blog and made this. To be honest, I've never completely frosted a cake solely by myself before (previous attempts always helped by mum), and this wasn't quite the pretty cake I was looking to create. The topping was also quite a feeble attempt at creating a pattern design...haha.
