Black velvet cake is a result of my sheer imagination and results were amazing. The colour and tastes is absolutely worth trying.
Visualisation is such a powerful tool that can conspire with the universe to get you what you want? The pictures you create in your mind if visualised with all your energy somehow conjoins matter and energy in creating the reality you wish for yourself. I am not talking in some metaphysical plane but in the daily urban grind that we all go through.I am talking about that deep inner desire, those sincere innate feelings you have harboured, that passion that consumes you completely and if you want to have it, I recommend you visualise it with all your mind and body and work for it and before you even know it you will have it for yourself.
Many people still dismiss this and discount this as some mumbo jumbo and term it as idle day dreaming, well if that works for them so be it. I read somewhere if you have to imagine and dream of something, why not believe & dream in the infinite possibilities that possibly there are in this universe than the few tried and tested and documented scripts. Honestly I have become a convert and have slowly become good at visualising things and I feel the sheer joy of all worlds when those come out true in reality. I reluctantly crossed over the bridge to the other side after reading many books that explain and detail this powerful process in great depth and many of these books also have testimonials of many a success that people have reported. But a very big disclaimer that I need to add is simply thinking without acting on your dreams is a very dangerous game often fraught with disappointment. Think, Visualise, plan and then most importantly act on your plans with the visualisation magic doing its backend work to conspire with the rest of the universe to create your reality.
My post for this black velvet cake was a result of my sheer imagination. I have baked enough of the regular red ones and the whole thought of baking a black velvet cake was so exciting and the most interesting part for me was styling it and photographing it to my heart’s content. Somehow the visualisation part did its share in helping me concoct & model it in the deepest recesses of my mind. I let it simmer there as I went through the week and during a casual browsing of the famous basement shop in Sydney known a Victoria basement, I came across these fancy pattern plates. I instantly knew that these would compliment the cake I was visualising
Now coming back to this black velvet cake…
Cream cheese frosting that goes well with black velvet cake but I am in love with Mascarpone frosting that is much more delicate and the combination is perfect.
I am sure I am going to bake them soon may be in a different colour next time around…
