July 9, 2007


I was celebrated my dearest hubby's birthday on July 3rd. First time, I prepared a cake and decorated my self. I know very well that its not perfect. My hubby also very happy with home made cake i.e mainly with decoration. Along with the cake, I prepared Gulab Jamuns. I have already posted the preparation of vanilla flavoured cake. The link is here:"Golden Vanilla Fluffy Cake" Here is my decorative cake:

First I prepared the vanilla flavoured cake and decorated with rich vanilla flavoured whipped cream and mixed fruit jam. I spread the cream on top of the cake. Then I wrote my hubby name with mixed fruit jam (:D). I prepared a cone with help of a planstic cover, filled mixed fruit jam and decorated the cake.

Gulab Jamun:

This is only one sweet, which is my hubby's favourite. I know that everybody knows very well about the making process of jamuns. Thats why I am not posting the making process of jamuns. If anybody wants, let me know through comments. I will post it. Here is lovely gulab jamuns.

For preparation of jamuns, I will tell you some tips to follow. If you interested, follow these tips and prepare lovely jamuns.
1. Mix the readymade jamun mix with milk, you will get smooth jamuns.

2. Complete the dough preparation as early as possible. Don't mix the dough too much with your hand, otherwise while frying the jamuns in oil or ghee, they will break.

3. After mix the dough, cover with wet cloth for 5 minutes, then make small size balls.

4. Fry the jamuns in oil or ghee on low heat. Otherwise they won't cook inside of the jamuns.
