Priyaa's Faluda Cake - Step by Step Recipe

This is my second attempt on cakes after the chocolate cake with plain whipped cream icing. In this new year, I tried making multiple flavour cake. I grabbed the recipe from allrecipes.com.au. The Cake I did, had three flavours like vanilla, pine apple and mashed bananas. The icing had lemon and chocolate powder in it.

I did this with my whole family. My dad and mom were helping me in getting ingredients. They really enjoyed me doing things with creativity.

I am very happy about the output. But the cake is yet to be tasted. Only reason being, I did the cake late in the evening which would make us feel heavy. The flavour of lemon and aroma was awesome.

Step by Step Pictorial Tutorial for this cake making is as follows..

Mash two medium sized bananas

Mix the mashed banana with the cake powder mix

Add 2 tbsp of oil, 2 tbsp vannila essesence, 2 tbsp of pine apple essesence

Add milk and stir well till u get the following consistency of the flour

Apply oil and sprinkle maida flour and pour the batter into the vessel to make the cake.
Add Butterscotch,cashewnuts and Dried grapes
Place the vessel in electri cooker with 1 inch water. Keep the batter on power for nearly 40 minutes.
Meanwhile steps for preparing icing:

Mix Icing Sugar and 2 lemon's juice + 1 spoon of complan to form a icing of following consistency

The aroma is really awesome. The consistency is important.

After 35 minutes, the cake is made and placed on the cake dish. Leave it for 10 minutes so that the cake is set

Cover the cake with the icing!

Cake is decorated with silver pellets , butterscotch, jelly, gems.

Lemon are placed on the cake dish to give a cool look =)

Keep the cake in a warm place for a night and slice to enjoy the delicacy. I kept it in our microwave oven.

Yummy Faluda Cake Ready!

DIY : Valentines Day Love Tokens

This weekend was simply a learning. I learn few beautiful DIY ideas from Pinterest and few other websites.

The DIY Ideas were awesome and that too for Valentines Day. These gifts may be silly and simple. If I gift these to my love, he will truly appreciate my creativeness and encourge me in constructive learning.

My hubby is the most important person in my life.. Learning some simple stuff and showing my love towards him even in these tiny gifts makes me happy.

I learnt to make hearts. I learnt to make hearts just by joining papers and also the Origami style heart.. Also learnt Heart Bookmarks! The website from which i learnt Origami is Origami Club!!

Please find the hearts which i made for my hubby for this Valentines day.

                                  Valentines Day is fast approaching!!!!

Project 365 : True Friend

Spotted. I was searching for a gift for my friend, and these words grabbed my attention.
The words are very true.

FareWell to My Friend!

Sending off Party is the party which  I hate and feel uncomfortable. Yeah, missing someone very special or very close is always a difficult moment.

These pictures are  treasure. We gave a small farewell party to Prathee, on her last day in our organisation. I ordered a special Black  Chocolate Truffles Cake for her with the wording "Always with you". To be frank, she found those wording more sentimental. I felt it so asked the baker to write it.

She gave us treat that afternoon. And she gave me a special treat. Guess what? She cooked Vegetable Rice for me (home made) She is absolutely a nice cook. We share recipies and cooking tips and health tips during our lunch sessiosn.

By evening, we gathered in Main Cafeteria of our office. Also present were Yunus, Abi and Subbu. The get to gether was fun packed.

We took photos, cut cake. Ate cake! Prathee I thank you for being with me and inspiring me!

Remember Prathee, I will come to your house once and have loads of food u cook! be Ready!
