I'm yet to figure out the exact point at which I got distracted. I was lost in the world of cakes and it's flavours. I was contemplating whether to go with plain ones or iced ones. With all those cake ideas parading inside my head, I started getting a headache and that's when I was jolted back to reality and I embarrassingly realised I was sitting in the church attending the weekend service!!
It was my b'day on June 6th and the above incident happened on the Friday before that. I'm not sure why I was so obsessed with baking a cake this year. I'm not a person who bothers much about b'day cake and things like that. Well, sometimes there is no explanation for how or what you feel, the heart wants what it wants, right? I was almost set on this “butterscotch cake”, but then I saw some other recipes and it went out of control.
You know what, after all that hoo-hah with cakes, I didn't get to bake one for my b'day. Jose fell sick during that time and there ended my cake parade. He kept asking me to bake one, but I didn't quite feel like it. Honestly, I was feeling a bit guilty, I was thinking whether my private cake slide show during the mass wasn't such a great idea after all!!
Anyways b'day got over without much fanfare and I still missed my b'day cake. But then I relaised I share my b'day month with MariasMenu's anniversary. Yep, this month MM celebrates 9 years!! Now that's something right? It definitely calls for a cake celebration. I was back on the cake baking mode, but this time I decided to stick with my original plan of “Butterscotch Cake”.
I've baked this cake earlier and liked it very much. However, Jose isnt a big fan of this cake, he likes the one with “butterscotch icing”. Since it was my b'day (ehh.. MM's b'day) I decided to bake what I like ;) I baked this cake and had it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Yep, I had my cake and ate it too..
This cake is nothing fancy, but not too plain also. It's a combination of fine vanilla sponge with butterscotch custard. The base cake is a light and moist cake with fine crumbs and it pairs well with the custard.
Hope you will also like our b'day cake :)
