  1. First, let me say that I’m so happy for you that you had a chance to sit in the same room as the Dhali Lama. It is true that the path to happiness can sometimes be so simple, but life can be so complicated that everything gets mucked up. Anyway, big smile for you on this!

    Second, your cake looks great, and it appears we had the exact same experience. The color of the batter looked really good for me too, and when it came out of the oven, the red was gone. I made the same raspberry glaze as you and ooh, the cake transformed into this gorgeous, luscious red.

    Beautiful post!


  2. Mine too..turned out like ‘blonde’ color.. instead of red.. inside was pink thought. Looks great with the rapsberry sauce… at least it looks pretty.. haha..mine looked like halloween cake. LOL!


  3. What an incredible time you must have had listening to the Dhali Lama amongst like minded people, even if only for a short time. I sometimes read his twitter account for a little boost. Such intelligent insight. Your cake is definitely going to be a show stopper for the dinner party. I wonder if concentrated raspberry holds better color than beets? Such a lovely, vibrant shade.


    1. Thanks Vicki! I might try using raspberry concentrate to colour the cake next time. May also use the full amount of cocoa powder recommended. The Dalai Lama was so inspiring. He really can’t help himself. Even when he was being light-hearted and funny he still sounded wise!


  4. So weird. I don’t see how something that looked so pink could lose its color in the oven. But the raspberry glaze really turned it a beautiful deep red. I hope all the good feelings you’re carrying with you after seeing the Dalai Lama will last for a while!


  5. your cake look stunning!!! i am so happy for you to have the life time experience of seeing the Dalai lama, on my computer background picture i have this quote:” we can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves”-Dalai Lama.
