Baking fun

I accidentally got to know of a baking class through a dear friend way back in Dec `13.  And jumped at this opportunity.  My girls love cakes.  That was the inspiration plus the zest to learn a new thing.  Just a two day class of 3 hours each.  We learnt to make 6 varieties.  Thanks to Shubhada Gadkari.  She is meticulous and particular.  No wonder her passion for baking could be easily seen in the class.

Since then, every b'day in the family gave me an opportunity to try.  Base cakes I've been baking regularly.  But those special ones were reserved for b'days.  This was the latest.  Chocolate truffle. Completely baked and decorated by my daughter Upasana under my supervision :)  I have graduated :)

My daughters chose what they wanted for their b'day.  So Jan and Feb was Chocolate truffle and black forest.

Here's the black forest . (Pls don't mind the quality of pics.  These two were from a cell

Then March saw fresh fruit cake. This was the best that I liked.  Sob sob I DON"T LIKE CHOCOLATE CAKES but I bake them for my girlies.

Here I could use strawberries, pineapple, black grapes and kiwi.

I also tried my hand at pineapple upside down

And ofcourse walnut cake and cup cakes

With the mango season on, I tried fresh fruit with mango layers

BaKiNg hAs beEn FUN :)
