My girlfriend invited us for dinner and asked me if I could make a small cake, a plain one, without any decorations. I said yes. I made an 8 inch cake, covered it with buttercream and I was done. At least, that was what I thought. About half an hour before we needed to go my husband told me that’s it was our friends’ anniversary tonight and that’s why they are organizing this dinner. I was shocked because I had no idea, and I had this plain white cake in front of me. I knew I couldn’t bring the cake as it was and I had only 20 min to make it as pretty as possible. I mixed my buttercream and started piping the flowers. In the middle of piping the edges with rosettes, I ran out of buttercream.

I had to improvise, so I found this little hearts in my drawer. When something like this happens, don’t panic, just look for other cute details you can use. Everybody thought I did it on purpose, and it didn’t look bad at all :). This is the banana cake. I already wrote the recipe in my previous blog. Lots of my friends are asking for this specific cake. So be free to try to make it yourself. Maybe you too will fall in love with it.
