Black Forest Cake with a Story

This one is going to be a short blog post, since I've posted several black forest cakes already. A friend of mine ordered a birthday cake for her husband a month ago and I made her this cake. What I want to share with you about this cake is not so much the cake, but the story behind the cake.

You see, this friend ordered the cake and told me to write some message on it but she didn't specify the actual words. So when I made the cake, I thought about what to write and somehow I wrote "Love Never Fails" on the cake. Then, the morning before the cake was picked up, I read a message from her asking me to write "Happy Birthday, Say" on the cake. I felt terrible that I had written something different than what she had requested, but since the words were already written and it's too late to change, I just left the message as it is.

Two days after the cake was picked up, I got a message from her telling me that the cake was good :) and that the message written on the cake has been a blessing for her. Reading her message was such a great blessing for me because I've been praying for a while on the purpose of my blog/hobby. I wanted my baking to be more than activities and my blog to be more than informational. I know God has a purpose in my life, and it sure includes my hobby. And knowing that what I bake blesses others was an answer from God on my prayer. I'm very grateful that the almighty God is still willing to use me as his tool. :)

I am really thankful for all my friends who had prayed for me and who had encouraged me all this while. :) *Muach*

  1. You have a great blog! Thanks for sharing what you learn so I can learn, too. Mostly I bake Austrian and Hungarian tortes and cookies, but you have given me good ideas. Please keep it up.
