Take a trip with me to two weeks ago when we basically had the same menu for Saturday night dinner. When I planned that meal I forgot that little Miss V, whose birthday we celebrate this week, has a thing for
Purple marble birthday cake
There were 11 of us for dinner this week (7 adults; 4 children).
My husband made the bread and cake. He wanted to make something that went with the heritage of the food we were having for dinner so he made a bread with burnt sugar, triticale flour and raisins. It looked as pretty as it tasted.
The cake is another brightly colored creation, purple this time in honor of the birthday girl. This time he did a white cake with a deep purple marbling. While butter frosting and purple sprinkles.
