Life isn’t Measured in Minutes, but in Heartbeets

Incidents in life are mostly about casual routines, and only few things change the rhythm of your heart. Those moments can be found anywhere, yet they are rare. That’s a one reason why I love weddings. Wedding is a place where good moments are likely to meet. Shared happiness, socializing, music and dance, dining together, last but not least, the wedding cake. A sweet closing for a sweet event.

Since we are stuck in quarantine and can’t go out for this kind of gathering, I decided to bring the event to home and I made a cake to be able to pretend like we are celebrating a happy event outside.

My beetroot cake is tasty as well as pretty, and the beautiful pink color is 100% natural. #NOFOODCOLORING
