Today I want to share with you a Chocolatey Naked-Cake I baked for one of my very good friend, Emily Voong. We're supposed to be celebrating her birthday in another two weeks, but she was super sweet and understanding that I was busy...So, we decided yesterday to get together today!!! So I was like, what will be an easy enough cake for me to bake for her for her birthday...THE NAKED CAKE!!!! it's super easy and super simple! Not technically skills involved - meaning decorations, BUT that is the fun and beauty of this....The non-decoration IS the decoration!!!! I am pretty in love with the naked cake type of decoration...it's elegant and super pretty. I love how fondant looks, but no one ever eats them and i feel like it's such a waste, so why not use fruits - taste yummie and it's healthy and you get your vitamins ;) so I give you...

I always have so much fun hanging out with my Em Em ;) We went to Oz and ate 20 pounds of food and then enjoyed a Thai Tea at Moo Moo. We were too stuffed to cut the cake and eat it too, but I did tried the cake and it was oooh sooo yummie and light!!!! The whipped cream is yummie, I've made it before and that is coming from someone who doesn't like whipped cream too (O-M-G right? crazy weirdo me right?!).
Give the recipes a try and let me know what you think! Thanks for dropping by!!!
HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY EM EM!!! TO MANY MANY MORE GREAT TIMES!!!
Love always, SMILE!!! MUI HOANG
