A year of Love

Last year on August 22nd I changes from Ms. to Mrs……and was tied up with the World Best person……I must say he is my life......I remember each nd every moment we spend together today we cherished all the lovely moments….I had my best gift with me :P apart from tht Guru gave me something very very spl.


I was wondering wat shall I do for this day???? I asked my best buddy wht shall I do? I wanted to give him a Cannon Camera P10….but here I cudn go all alone (as it is not allowed) I was just like a fish without water :P…….I even asked Lubna wht cud I do?? She suggested me about a card nd a good décor…I had tht ready but I wanted something more apart from tht…. Then I decided to go for shopping vth guru and just skip once nd buy tht camers for him (Camera bcoz from past 5 months he is thinking of buying it but always told will buy later now I have a good Cam ne ways :P :P). As I thought I went for shopping and tried skipping but this guy was all the way with me then phew his colleague called him (thanks a lot to him) nd this guy was bz spking I ran to 3 4 shops but dint find tht model….:( now wht to do then I thought I will buy a gud watch…..I ran bac to Casio nd picked a watch for him and got it packd soon so tht by the time he is in the box is in y bag…but he saw a bit of the box he kept on asking whtz tht ….But m smart ain’t I? I told the sales guy to tell he just gave me a box nd he did so…

I will upload the snaps of the handmade flowers soon...Photobucket

Now for the cake I had to get a cake ready….vth wht I had bcoz everything had to be a surprise….I prprd a Pineapple Cake with Strawberry butter icing…but when I was applying the Icing my Sweet hubby was about to enter so I hurried to apply tht so it hasn come tht even…..:( but it hds tasted heavenly………. Everything is ready but he is in the room how to push him out….yeppppppy Idea I told him tht his fav show was going on nd he went out I kept the cake ready all his gifts nd had to make the most funniest reason for him to come In( not to be revealed :P) nd now time to cut the cake together…He was so happy for everything I did for him…. Luking at all his gifts he was over whelmed….After all this I was hungry so had my dinner….then had a great snore zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz until next morning…..

A bright morning…as if the sun was Inviting us with Love……the day starts nd we r on with the morning show – LUCK…..Really was a good movie. After all this our stomcahe started calling for food …….(as it is Ramadan all the restu….were closed until evening we cud not go out for lunch) so we planned for dinner….. to Movenpick
. I cooked something really simple as I had to keep my tummy empty for the dinner (As I always tell we eat like birds….sometimes even Lunch fills our tummy…nd we have just salad at nyt: P). We had a wonderful evening and a ever memorable one. I will cherish each moment.

He he he after all my stories I will post the Cake recipe ( it was really soft nd Fluffy…as I was hurrying I cudn manage with the perfect icing though L)…. I saw Upside down cake of Divya’s Blog , but I made them with egg nd it was not exactly upside down cake as did not place pineapple slices.

Here is what we need:
All purpose flour – 2 cups
Eggs – 3 ( instead of baking powder nd baking soda)
Pineapple essence – 1 ½ tbsp
Water – 1 cup (divs used 3/4th cup of milk)
Butter – ½ cup
Powdered Sugar – 2 cup ( I replaced sugar instead of milkmaid)
For Icing I followed her butter cream icing
Softened butter – ½ cup
Icing sugar – 1 ½ cup
Strawberry essence - ! tbsp (divs used vanilla essence and cocoa powder)
Pink colour – 1/2tsp
Preheat oven for 375* F.
Cream butter until fluffy add eggs one by one and beat for 5 minutes on medium speed until fluffy.
Add powdered sugar and mix well.
Now add flour lil by lil and without forming lumps, add pineapple essence, water and beat for 5 minutes until creamy and fluffy.
Grease a round baking tin and pour the batter into the tin and bake for 35 – 40 min or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Cool the cake for a while nd place it on a wire rack.
Now prepare for the icing:
Cream together butter and icing sugar until soft and creamy.
Add strawberry icing and pink food colour. And beat well.
Spread on the cake and and cool in refrigerator for some while.
