happy b'day sis!!! :S

Sunday, August 30, 2009
it was my li'l sis;'s b'day thos gone week. and since we wanted it to be extra special, i decided to bake her a cake myself. i know, it was a big risk i was taking but then hey, big gains involve big risks. and also i had run out of my pocket money so i was totally broke and cudnt really afford a fancy cake!!! *sigh* dont tell anyone that! lets keep it a secret of our own!! anyhow, so once decided we, i mean, i wanted to bake her a cake with my own two artful hands, first prob rose-recipe!! we, i mean i, didnt have one. just wen all the hopes seemed to come crumbliing down, i remembered of one old recipe(i think it was my nani's hierarchial recipe) lying in some hidden corners of an old cuboard. so i took the mounaineous task of hunting for that little battered bit of paper. finally, braving against lurking rats, cockroaches and god knows wat other fellow inhabitants of this little world, i extracted that recipe!!
that was one rush of relief!!! huh... anyhow, so with recipe in my hand, i started gathering all the ingredients. flour,sugar,milk,cream,salt(yeah i know, i was amazed too), lemon(more amazed) and eno salt( okay maybe it wasnt my nani's hierarchial recipe or sth cuz clearly there was no eno salt back then)...
so with all my ingredients ready, i got down to an hour of mixing, measuring, spilling, remeasuring, mixing again, a bit of tripping( that has nth to do with my baking that cake but still, it was in the course so lets not forget it tooo)greasing, more mixing and then finally pouring into the pan. after an hour of struggling with these i finally put the greased shiny pan in the oven. how it gleamed after the blissful reunion( m talking abt the oven). so an hour of baking of little pan basking in glory of oven at its full magnificence, i retrieved the little thing from the oven.
oh how nice it looked..golden brown, soft, spongy and and delicious!!!!! so finally i did some fancy icing (yes ofcourse i did that!!) some cherries on the top and vola, the very masterpiece was ready to be indulged in.
after my sis over with all the rituals of making wishes adn blowing candles and cutting (quite unnecessary, if u ask me!) we all decided to dig in. i was ready to get all the compliments i deserved for my toil, to be acknowledged for my hidden talent.....
but hang on, this tastes a bit funny. is sth wrong?? or is it just me?? y does it taste like it shudnt??? i look arnd to see if others have similar expressions and, oh! is that the bowl of sugar lying unattended on the table???? :O *horror struck*
