Long full day, full of cakes flowers and presents.
Grand finale were two beautiful cakes for my mother in-law and mom، though I assembled them in a hurry but they turned out real beauties, covered with colored cream to match the macaroons and meringues on top.
First layer was lemon velvet filled with strawberries and top layer chocolate filled with ganache. So yummy.
Upon my son’s request today’s lunch was on his favorite dishes, pesto pasta with chicken, mushroom and cream. Easiest thing to do specially if you have an outing.
On the side and made a big bowl of Ceazar salad, yummy and fresh goes along with the warm sunny day.
Fresh pesto done and cooked at the same time,amazing !
dessert was a piece of yesterday’s cake !
Best thing that happened to me today is receiving a big beautiful greeting card on the occasion of Mother’s day from my best friend’s lovely beautiful daughter Ward, though I don’t have a daughter of my own but I really love all my friends’ beautiful young ladies as mine, thank you loving Whardo,you’re the sunshine of my life.
Though it’s supposed to be a happy joyful day but I always feel sad for people who lost their moms, or childless moms or orphans and keep hoping that these people might find someone to compensate the loss ,plus I don’t like the idea that this day became a big propaganda for gifts and home supplies. If you really love your mom you must love and cherish her all year long not only in one day.
Well anyway, we’ll all gather this evening, I made this lovely cake that I saw on Instagram and been waiting for a special occasion to make it, recipe is the same as red velvet but with violet food coloring and because I didn’t find the right color is did it by mixing red and blue together, all morning doing trials till we got the exact color.
One more thing, filling inside is cream cheese icing and blueberries.
Beautiful sunny warm day..perfect for celebrating Mother’s Day and beginning of Spring time.
Happy Mother’s Day to all moms,grandmas, aunties, big sisters and anybody who’s celebrating.
I’m off today, no cooking, but we had a big breakfast in the garden with my mom and mother in-law. Got beautiful presents from my sister in-law..and most precious one was funny lovable cards from my two gems ..love you boys ♡♥♡♥♡♥.
