When I was asked to make a birthday cake for my friend’s toddler, I wasn’t sure if I could do it at first. It’s just less than 1 week away till I head to Japan, and I still had lots of things to do. Packing, cleaning the room, laundry… But I said “sure” because it’s his 2nd birthday party and I’d already bought a birthday present for him.
My friend wanted something simple – sponge, cream, and fresh fruits. Just like Japanese cake. I was little worried though, because the location of the party was at the park (BBQ party) and the forecast said it’d be raining! If outside, there might be many flies too. Because I use fresh cream, I thought it might be ruined if it’s windy and raining.
I finished making the cake anyway,
Now it’s the most scary part – delivering the cake! It was a quite big one, so I had to put it in a big box.
When we arrived there, the sky was all white and grey. I quickly showed the cake to my friend, and covered it to protect from the wind and flies.
There’re so many yummy foods – hotdog, grilled veggies, and some food made by Thai chef (our old friend)! I especially loved a spicy prawn salad she made. I must get the recipe!
She even brought a deep-frier for spring rolls. She said that if she cooked it at home and brought there it won’t be crispy. It’s true…
They all seemed to love my cake too. I was relieved. Although it started to be drizzly while enjoying BBQ, it was a lovely day.
