Patterned Cake Roll: A video tutorial | The Novice Housewife

I am not big on Valentine’s Day. I mean do we really need a day to tell someone we love them, or to celebrate love for that matter. Love should be celebrated everyday, and we should tell the people we love how much they mean to us, irrespective of the date on the calendar. It needn’t be verbal and it needn’t be over top. Just paying attention to them when they talk. Being interested in how their day has been. Putting away the phone, or switching off the laptop/TV to just talk to them. Making them laugh, or sharing a laugh with them. Doing little things that you know the other person will like. It’s really not that difficult to celebrate love every day.

But that said, even though I try not to fall into the whole Love is in the Air trap, its difficult not to get engulfed in all the reds and pinks that the blogosphere and social media is full of these days. And having said what I said above, it really IS nice to have a day where someone makes a little effort in making you feel special.

And this cake is definitely a great way to celebrate your someone special this Valentine’s Day. And hopefully this video tutorial will help you to achieve just that.

I haven’t been feeling too motivated to blog. I really don’t know why. Just in that rut, I guess- the bloggers’ block. This blog was supposed to be about food as well as my life with snippets from my day to day life. You know, so that one day, when I or my kids or someone would read and say hmm so this was the day The Novice Housewife did this.

And, although things are happening in my life, there has been nothing worth writing about. And, even though I have plenty of recipes to share, I haven’t been blogging because I just don’t know what to write.

But today I can’t let my rut come in the way of sharing this recipe with you. Especially, more so because Valentine’s days is in two days.

And though I am not a Velentine’s Day celebrator, in case you are, you will have to make this.

And share it with that special someone.

Or not. And eat it all by yourself.
