The experience as described by San Francisco-based photographic artist Alexis Coram:

There are some things in this world that everyone deserves to experience with their own eyes. I headed to Alaska in February with the hope of catching a glimpse of the Northern Lights with mine. That glimpse turned into an extravaganza…a party in the sky, and I was an onlooker, a face in the crowd…awestruck, mesmerized, feeling like the luckiest girl in the world. Night after night I was captivated by bright and colorful lights dancing wistfully above me; a graceful representation of the light in my soul. These were enchanted nights like I’ve never experienced.

Mango Ginger Carrot Cake

12 May

I baked my mom a Mango Carrot Ginger Cake for Mother’s Day and I must say, I’m pretty happy with the way this one turned out despite a slight mishap with the candied carrots.  I meant to make curled carrot ribbons but I accidentally left them in the over for too long when I was icing.  The thinner strands just snapped when I tried curling them but luckily the thicker strands had enough moisture to bend, so I just figured that I’d make a giant rose for the centrepiece and crumble the rest around it.

The cake itself is incredibly moist, smells amazing, and tastes really good but I think I’ll go back to using whipped cream the next time I make this.  The ginger cream cheese frosting is a bit too sweet for my liking despite using a cup of icing sugar less than recommended.

My mom was thrilled when she saw it even though aesthetically, I think I did a better job with the Black Forest Cake for her birthday earlier this year:

My brother also made a  spinach-steak pizza from scratch for dinner but we were all so excited to taste it that we completely forgot to take photos.  The crust is surprisingly easy to make; he only used plain yoghurt and self-rising flour, nothing else.  Guess we can stop buying frozen pizzas now, lol.
