Welcome to my blog Violets & Vanilla, dedicated mainly to baking and decorating cakes and other sugar treats. Notice how I said mainly? That is because being an Indian, and specially a South Indian, I love my spices as much as I love my sweets. So don’t be surprised if you find some spicy delicacies make an appearance in this supposedly sweet space.
Living in a city like Houston, known for its diverse, multicultural food scene and where you can easily get every ingredient imaginable, there has been no dearth of opportunities for me to find and cook new and interesting recipes. And this blog, I hope, would serve as a beautiful album of all those cooking and baking experiments and experiences of mine — an album that I would like you all to go through and enjoy.
