Happy Mother's Day: My Homemade Victoria Sponge Cake!






Happy Mother's Day to all you lovely mothers around the world! A mother is the one truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, she is the one person who will stick by us. & for that reason alone,  Mother's Day truly deserves to be celebrated. 
I celebrate the one strong woman who brought me up all on her own; see, my father died when I was eight so my mother took it upon herself to be both for me. For this, I am eternally grateful. Besides, I haven't turned out too bad. The past couple of years, I've been buying my mum gifts but this year, I wanted it to be personal and so I baked her a cake this morning. It took me 3 hours, that's from the mixing of ingredients to baking and decorating. I'm not exactly complaining because I absolutely love baking but it does take a lot of patience. I even went as far as purchasing a cake box to transport my work of art; with my driving it's surprising that it got to my mum's house it one piece. Anyway, the cake was delicious and my mum loved it so it was all worth it. She'll be munching on that for the next three days.







I'm so happy with how my cake turned out! Getting better at this aren't I?
Hope you all had an amazing day!
