I am beyooond excited to announce that I’ll be working with KitchenAid Philippines for the next few months to bring you some delicious recipes, with the help of course of their awesome products! Yaaaay! I’ve been a fan of the brand from the beginning. I’ve been using their KitchenAid Heavy Duty Stand Mixer since I became serious about baking for the blog so many years ago, and it was definitely one of the best investments I’ve ever made! Owning a KitchenAid stand mixer will change your baking game forever. Let me just get that out there.
There was really more than one reason to get cooking this week other than Lent. April 22nd also happens to be my Mother’s Birthday! We didn’t go out to celebrate because my Dad was away, and since we were staying home, I decided to make something special for her instead. Initially, my youngest brother and I chose Red Velvet Cake, but we made her this Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting instead, because Carrot Cake is one of her favourites (as is mine). We then surprised her with the cake during the afternoon, sang her an out of tune birthday song and made her blow one measly candle.
