Many thanks for all the kind comments about the Botton cafe blog post, and also to everyone who has gone to check the cafe out in person. :) I’ve heard from the Botton ladies that they have been so happy to meet more foreign customers and serve vegan goodies. So yayyyy! Anyway, it’s been a busy (and rainy) week and I haven’t been able to blog for a while, but here are some random photos and updates:
Recently, Joanne, a blog friend and customer ordered a birthday cake for her boyfriend. She said he wanted a dark chocolate cake with raspberries but I couldn’t find fresh raspberries anywhere so I ended up making a chocolate cake with blueberries on the inside and raspberry buttercream frosting on the outside using some raspberry purée and blackberry powder. Joanne later sent me a photo of the cake with the candles. It turned out really purple like a unicorn, but she reported that he loved it.
After that, I made a similar cake for Botton cafe and it has now been nicknamed the Purple Rain Cake, to go with their Purple Rain coffee blend. :) Rich chocolate cake and two different kinds of berries make this all kinds of vegan-awesome. All that’s missing is Prince’s song playing in the background. Infact, here’s a link to the video. (Thanks to Joanne & Chad for the inspiration~) Oh, and that’s an iced soy chai latte, to-go. Delicious.
Alien’s Day Out in the press! 10Magazine had a little blurb about High Street Market’s new vegan items, and they mentioned the blog! Woot~~
Ok Alien Friends! That’s all for today, have a good one! ta ta~
