My youngest daughter Tammie Kwong came back for the  summer holidays in University of Melbourne.   She has been  'force to' cook and bake for herself in Melbourne since eating out can be very costly.

The Red Velvet Cake is her 1st attempt as my kitchen are well equiped with ingredients and utensils unlike her accomodation in Melbourne.

From measuring the ingredients, mixing, blending to frosting and decorate the cake with all her heart. Tammie has developed the passion and love for baking. I am very sure her baking skills will definately improve further.  Gambateh, Tammie!

She randomly google the recipe.  With modern technology if you have the passion to learn 'google' and You tube are ever ready to give you aassitance needed! 
And  TADA here is the product of Tammie Kwong!

The texture looks good and most important taste good!
