I made this cake two weeks ago for my bestfriend’s grandmother, and did not have time to post it on the blog sooner.
This was my first time making a drip cake and I was really happy with the results. I used a basic vanilla cake for the cake layers, filled it with caramel buttercream and covered it with vanilla buttercream and caramel sauce.
Overall, I was pretty happy and already thinking of new ideas for my next cake!!
Enjoy some pictures (so pretty, I couldn’t choose 😩 ) Continue Reading
Growing up Pudim de leite moça (as we called it then, named after the brand of condensed milk) was one of my favorite desserts and now I make it quite often myself. This dessert can be found at almost every Angolan party/special occasion.
You can find many different variations througout the Lusophone countries, South-America and the Caribbean. It is also quite similar to flan.
I love baking. Cooking and baking has been a part of growing up in an Angolan family. Birthdays, get-togethers, family visits, it all meant cooking up a storm and this is how my love for food started. As part of a traditional upbringing my mom would ask me to join her in the kitchen and help, this automatically also meant you got to be responsible for a certain dish. I mastered traditional dishes such as funge, mufete, and desserts such as pudim de leite condensado (don’t worry, they’ll appear on the blog soon enough).
Along the way I picked up a few favorite dishes of my own and I also enjoyed baking a lot more and started to experiment on my own. One of my favorite cakes to make is a red velvet cake. I have been asked to make this cake so many times, that I can say that it’s a favorite amongst my friends, so obviously it had to be my first food post on the blog.
