Me and my husband were in the same class in primary school, all seven years. Back then, I would have never picked him for my husband. I actually do not remember ever talking to him then. I thought he was quiet which he is not. Many years later when we reconnected, it was like meeting him for the first time and falling in love with him was easy. We are as different as we are alike. People say our son looks like me but he definitely has his father’s character.
I made this Blue Velvet cake for my husband’s birthday. He does not like deserts much so I decided to go with a naked cake.
I decided on a naked cake because I like the rustic look of it all and I love berries. I know hoe to bake but I find icing cakes challenging. I have become better at it but I do not have the patience to actually learn how to do it properly. It is just one of those things that do not interest me much. With a naked cake, I feel like you can get away without knowing a lot about icing cakes.
I used Sally’s Baking Addiction recipe for a red velvet cake but instead of red gel I used navy blue. I probably should have gone with a lighter colour because my cake looks closer to black than it does blue. I used a simple buttercream frosting.
