the beauty of creation

There is something beautiful about the baking process. The way flour feels in your hands or the sound of eggs cracking on the edge of a bowl. Baking is a gathering of interesting materials, a mixed medium art piece of sorts, that ends in a cake instead of a canvas.


If you want to try this cake for yourself (which we highly recommend) follow the recipe below:

  24. You tricked us with the pic of the gulab jamum in the jar and made us curious, only to show the video of the stupid cake. And don't even tell me I should've known as the title says 'beet cake'. I am not a westerner so what do I know how you guys name things.

    And what is with the crappy purple tint of the video? Makes that cake look plastic and soo unappetizing.

  25. Watched this video a while back as a like from CRAFT Magazine and loved it. I wanted so much to try it, so I came back to try to transcribe what I saw and POOF! the written recipe is here! Thanks a million ... just about to roast the beets :)
