Happy New Year! Although I've been starting to blog more recently, I know it is still not fast enough to catch up with everyone in the flogging world. I'm still trying hard though, to juggle between work and kitchen. Give me more time okay ;)

This Classic Butter cake was prepared to celebrate my very 1st post for 2009! How time flies, it looks like I was only learning how to bake the day before and boom it has been almost 1.5 years since I started my culinary path. It was indeed an enjoyable hobby and through my flogging, I got to know many friends who share the same interest as I am.

I am wishing that 2009 will be a smooth and fruitful year for everyone out there!
