Last night... after having a good dinner (Laksam) with my good friends.... and after chit chat... an later on tak leh nak tido, mula lah kepala ni ligat memikirkan nak buat apa untuk isi masa.. That time dah already 3am. jadilah this acctidentally red valvet cake... even tak cukup coloring... n i saw sirap ros, just add the syrup to get the more valvety color. the color turn out not bad... but not as red as using pure red food coloring. And the cake lebih moist sikit coz of syrup.
