My Valentine’s day -celebrated gulping Zebra Cake..

After all those die-hard posts and discussion on Freedom,I have started hating i feel like writing,something is stopping me,and even when the blogospehere is filled with posts on love in pink,though I wnated to add my 2 cents,I am not able to…I haven’t replied to many comemnts..Please give me some time.Maybe I need a break.But if I don’t put up a post atleast after 4 days,on this day,I would be perceived as anothet talibanized version..

I wish you all a Happy Valentine’s day.I hope that atleast a 50% those who celebrate this day are aware of the story behind..Love each other,not just this day,but everyday,every week,every month,every year and all your life.Never be late to appreciate the other person,for you never know if we would see each other,the next morning..

Our day moved on as just another fine morning.He gifted me a pink bedsheet,which I have yearned for years..I love pink bedsheets,and this one is really sweet and return,I baked him a Zebra cake..Don’t ask me what is the relation between Valentine’s day and Zebra Cake-just experimented a different cake..Initially,I wanted to make a pink cake,but had no idea how to impart the colour to the cake.I thought of baking a cake and frosting with with pink icing..After a few jumps to few confusions,I baked this.

Howz that!!!

Please take a piece of my cake and have a great day.

Good day!!

    You have a big heart. :). Ok, I will eat it this time from my own pocket, but this cake is due on you whenever we meet in real. 🙂

  13. I was not aware of a Zebra Cake! I am struggling at this time of the night to do a simple Potato curry!! Anyways, you have been tagged on the topic “Slow Melodious and Soulful Songs”.

  14. herez a thot- u cud have made the zebra cake into a pink and white cake… keeping the method of preparation the same, instead of adding cocoa to half the batter you could have added a few drops of edible pink colour.. or may be added puree/small pieces of strawberry to it… those are random thots..the zebra cake looks good the way it is!!send some over!:D

  17. The cake looks delightful Nimmy.

    And the pink bed sheet because you always wanted it is really very Valentine!!
    I also generally want no the regular gifts but just something that strikes, so I can imagine the joy a much wanted sheet might be! (But I prefer red or black!)

    Pink bedsheets is a dream come true, isn’t it? All girls love bedsheets, and so many love the color pink.

    And judging by the look of the cake, it seems quite sinful, so I am sure you must have ENJOYED.

    Wish you luck with your monitor.
