Yaaaay!!! technically it was yesterday. But everyday is my birthday 😈
I genuinely don’t have a preference when it comes to birthdays. I never even plan for anything (except this year. MUST SEE TINIE TEMPAH!!! – God Willing).
I haven’t had cake on my birthday since 2008. No, you don’t have to feel sorry for me, I hardly ever eat cake, and I genuinely would rather have a stack of grilled chicken and mushroom pasta and samosas.
But this year, I decided to bake myself a cake. Not for personal consumption, but I will give it to the estate kids to indulge. Reason being, they are always asking for free cake and i can only chuckle when they do. So today I will have a feast with them.
The lemon cake recipe can be found here, just ensure to completely mix your ingredients well so the cake will be light and fluffy.
- 280g margarine
- 2 cups sifted icing sugar
- 200g white chocolate
- 1 teaspoon pradip coconut essence
- White food Colour (the margarine and chocolate make the cream a bit pale yellow)
In a double boiler, melt the white chocolate completely, then set it aside to cool.
