Whilst everyone else was counting down to 2014, I was assembling a chequered cake for my BFF’s birthday celebration on New Year’s Day.
Decided on a pandan and vanilla cake with salted caramel buttercream frosting. It turned out pretty well but not quite the level I was hoping to achieve. The pandan fragrance didn’t come through strong enough.
I squeezed out the pandan essence from pounding the pandan leaves in a pestle and mortar. I didn’t use any artificial flavour enhancer. Guess this batch of pandanus leaves are less fragrant.
Anyway, this is wishing all of you a Blessed 2014. May The Lord continue to keep you safe and bless you with wave upon wave of grace and abundance.
