Valentine's Day Red Velvet Cake

Valentine's Day CakeHappy Valentine's day! It is one of the sweetest day of the year so I have to make this red velvet cake (gluten free) with the boiled frosting. This is a family recipe from a friend from south of USA. It has very rich flavor of the cake and the frost is very whipped cream like but not greasy at all.

That means all the love is merging together. :) Wish you and your love ones, single or married or with the significant others all have a wonderful Valentine's day!

Happy Lantern Festival

Fa CakeHappy lantern festival! It is dragon year this year and of course there are lots of celebrations back in Asia. I have been very busy and do not have too much time to post here. But I still managed to make the Fa cake and year cake.

2012There is a big lantern festival going on in Taipei, Taiwan. It is quite a beautiful show that you can check out here. Of course, it is a usual working day here in US so no celebration at all. This winter actually is very mild and sunny. It sometimes confuses me that if I am still in Florida for work. :) But I still bought some sticky rice balls to eat to celebrate the lantern festival. Happy dragon year!
