  1. Veron..Happy Birthday...thought this is the birthday cake :) I love all the cakes you baked...semua very moist :) KIV this too :)

    1. Hi Elin, I never baked birthday cakes for myself. This blueberry cake was from last week. Got too many blueberries sitting in my fridge, no one ate so I put them in the cake. Still not 'laku' and had to give away the cake :-(

  2. Veronica, that is a lovely slice of cake! I should really try baking with blueberries. I guess I am too stingy hah..hah...

    1. I also very kedekut, will only buy blueberries when they are cheap. Now they are only about $2+ per punnet.

  3. Sweet, tangy and with fresh berries..this cake must be amazing, Veronica.

  4. This looks gorgeously versatile! I can picture lots of different fruits in this :D
