Halmeoni’s Red Velvet Birthday Cake

This post is old, so what you see here may not reflect my current opinion and mindset, certain information may be outdated, and links may be broken.

I made red velvet cake for my maternal grandmother. With my mum’s help (since I have awful fine motor skills), we put a layer of cream cheese icing on the top. Then I used red sprinkle to cover up the icing — to give it some colour since I didn’t have any food colouring to give the icing other colour.

Then it was time to use the decorating bag, a completely new territory for me! I had a slightly difficult time trying to figure out the coupler’s purpose. Once I figured everything out, I experimented with the decorating bag and figured out how to squeeze the border, the flowers, and my grandmother’s name. It was not easy. I drove my mum crazy making this tonight, haha! Oh, well. It’s done.
