The recipe if from one of the baking class that I attended.These cakes are so soft which are my favourites, but not the buttercream, I found it oily, but anyway, I write down the recipe, maybe you want to try.(different people different taste bud )
I sprinkle some coloured sugar which I bought earlier (store in my pantry for quite long).If you want to make the colour sugar can get the recipe from Anncoo Journal .
