As you all know this month is the Think Pink month. Yup, it's Breast Cancer Awareness month. Same time round last year, I made my very first Pink Velvet Cupcakes; better known as my own Cupid Cupcakes.

Also it's no longer a shocking news I believe. On Wednesday, the computing world has lost a great inventor and entrepreneur. Someone who really thinks outside the box and gave us lots of vision through his inventions and visions. The person I'm referring to is Apple's Co-Founder, Steve Jobs who has lost his battle to pancreatic cancer. Being in the computing industry and though I do not work for Apple; we do feel a sense of loss. Lets just say being an IT student, we have looked up to people like them as inspiration and perhaps hope to be a little like them one day. I do not have the perfect words other than a heart felt condolence to his family.
Though this month is dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness month, to me the big "C" is still the same, irregardless which type it is. So please take the time, to care yourself and always show heaps of gratitude to your love ones and to those who have family or friends who are battling their big "C" battle right now, give them unconditional support as every little bit helps.

In tune with the theme, obviously it just have to be pink ;). I know this cake-lette looks super simple, and that's because it is. The next posts coming or so will be all on chocolate cakes. This time round, I thought I try out Donna Hay's Ultimate Chocolate Cake Recipe. Now her cake recipe makes 8-inches, 8 layers round cake. However, I've decided to switch it up a bit. That's because I think my family will not be overly crazy over an 8-layered cake, though I've always wanted to bake one. Perhaps next time?
Donna Hay's chocolate cake is slightly different compared to Martha's recipe. From taste to texture. Martha's cake is slightly more dense, where else Donna's chocolate cake has a more springy texture. Both recipes in my opinion are delish, depending which you prefer. Donna's has a little more work too, where else Martha's doesn't require you to cream the butter and sugar. So give it a go, or feel free to stick to your trusted chocolate cake recipe. Have a good weekend!!
