Today is my sister’s birthday. Sissa doesn’t think she is a good cook and doesn’t cook much. However, she makes the best pasta bake I’ve ever had, delicious enchiladas and a perfect chopped salad.
I love cooking for my sister and I miss randomly inviting her over so I can make her dinner and then sitting outside together, with a cuppa, gossiping. Last year for her birthday, I made her these Oreo cupcakes. I made them with a packaged devil’s food cake mix *gasp* with an Oreo in the base and a cream cheese frosting with Oreos crushed through it. Decorated with a mini Oreo, they were delicious.
Important things you should know about my sister:
- She likes chili but not curry
- She once convinced me to wear 12 cm peep toe heels with short shorts
- If we are together and hear the song ‘I like Big Butts’ we must sing and dance to it
- She drinks a lot of coffee and most often in the form of a mocha
So sissa I made you this mini mocha cake. Ummm…sorry that I am over 6,000km away and you won’t actually get to eat it. I promise I’ll make it again for you if you come visit me.
It’s a chocolate espresso cake with whipped cream and coffee syrup in between the layers and drizzled on top. I have leftover coffee syrup and I will think of you today as I enjoy it in my coffee.
