I can't believe that it's been a year since I made her last birthday cake. Lately I'm starting to realize that things are happening twice in Houston. Time really flies and it just caught me by surprise that I've been here in Houston for almost 2 years now. It's been pretty fun though down here. The weather is quite awful but I believe that as long as you have good friends around, any place is a jolly place. :)
As for the cake, it's made of 4 different components: pistachio dacquoise, raspberry mousse, strawberry sponge cake, and vanilla yogurt mousse. All of the recipes are courtesy of Cannelle et Vanille. :) She has this wonderful blog full of gorgeous photos and wonderful recipes! I definitely recommend everyone to check it out. :)
Here's a picture of the cross section of the cake. :) I think the colors are quite complimentary but I wish there's a little of orange or yellow in the cake. Cess' cousin also brought her a birthday cake from Jungle Cafe and it's just very pretty. The colors are so vibrant and the decorations were real pretty. It's really a reminder for me that I still have a long way to go and a lot to learn. :)
One last note before I leave this post -
In reading my daily devotion today, I came across Deuteronomy 6:5 that says "Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength." This is the same message that Jesus taught in the new testament (Luke 10:27)! It dawned on me that the message of love is preached throughout the bible and not just in the new testament. :) My God is a good God who is abounding in love and faithfulness (Exodus 34:6). Amen!
