I’m still missing Bangkok a whole whole lot. It was by far my favourite stop in Asia, it had a real east-meets-west vibe about it. All the culture with all the home comforts.
Before I embarked on my year in Stockholm, I had a cake making urge which resulted in these. They aren’t the neatest piece of work, but I had very little time.
I’m glad I did it though, despite the negative effect it had on my packing, because my new flat doesn’t have an oven! I’m outraged, but thankfully the solution is pretty simple; buy an oven.
The recipe for the cakes was the same as my rose and vanilla cupcakes, minus the rose and plus the gluten! The decorations are of some of my favourite places in Bangkok, and like any city, it’s unique coloured taxis.
Sadly, I can’t comment on how they tasted. My pesky labrador got to them before I’d even finished my dinner, so I guess I should only be thankful that they weren’t chocolate 🙂 But she ate all of them, so I guess they must have tasted pretty good.
Also, I was toying with the photo editor on my computer when I first took these photos about 3 weeks ago. From the tiny previews, I couldn’t tell which ones were the ones I’d been ‘experiemental’ on (to say the least) and which were the ones i’d just given a bit of a retouch and were supposed to be for this post!
I guess it will be a surprise for everyone when I post this, including me!
