I know that it is 6 days too late I am posting this, but “Happy Birthday My Kitchen Produce”. I have been trying to make the cake and the post but my boys were having cold, fever and diarrhea. A great combination which made my life so complete :(


It has been 2 years since I started this blog. It has been a journey ever since and I am looking forward to many adventurous kitchen experiment ahead. With the existence of this blog, I always feel so challenged to try new recipes and improve my cooking and baking skills. Spending my spare “me” time browsing through some amazing foodie blogs to search for recipe trials and inspirations.

Now let’s start with statistic…

The visitors in this second year rise more then three folds of last year one. WOW!! Thank you guys, I didn’t expect that it will be this much. There were 14,352 to be exact, coming from over 120 countries. The most visited recipe is always “Kue Lapis Sagu“. It hasn’t been defeated by any other recipes yet and always makes me wonder why :) Lately my daily visitor could reach more than 100 a day, and that is just icing on the cake. The numbers encourage me to cook, bake and post more recipes.

Here comes the cake…

It seems simple and plain but looks can be deceiving :) The truth is I don’t have any idea to decorate it with. It was midnight when I finished frosting it and I couldn’t wait till morning to cut the cake. I wouldn’t be bothered going to Coles to buy some fresh raspberries. However, some fresh raspberries on top would make a huge appearance difference.

Few reasons that made me want to make this cake as the 2nd birthday cake. First, the title intrigues me, Perfect Party Cake. Second, it was Dorie’s Greenspan’s recipe (If you notice, I was making Dorie’s Devils Food White Out Cake). Apparently, the one genuine real baking book that I have is only Dorie’s. Internet and google has made recipe searching so much easier thus you don’t need to own a book :) Third, the unique technique involving in the mixing process. It requires egg whites (no yolks) and they are mixed with buttermilk before added to the butter mixture. I was curious with the texture of the cake. Lastly, we went to the citrus farm last week and bought 16 kg of citrus (10 kg mandarins, 5 kg satsuma, and a kg mix of kaffir limes and lemons). This recipe requires lemons, so it is perfect fresh from the farm.

I will post the recipe ASAP, because this cake is to die for. If you loves lemon, you will definitely adores this cake. Layers of lemon scented cake stack in between raspberry jam and covered in lemon swiss meringue buttercream. Originally, they are also covered with sweetened dessicated coconut, but I am not a big fan of coconut and my husband hates coconut. He will not eat it if he sees those coconut. I don’t want to feel guilty on gobbling 3 sticks of butter from the cake and buttercream alone :)

Please leave your comment/suggestion if you find this recipe useful. Can’t wait to hear from you and Thank You !!!
