I am one of those who had their birthdays in the Enhanced Community Quarantine period. And as someone living somewhere in the outskirts of the city, it was difficult to get a cake! Our place was not always within the limited scope of deliveries. And our going-out schedule just didn’t match. So I didn’t bother.
It was only a week after my birthday that I found out one can make a cake without baking or using an oven. What?! And there are a lot of videos sharing techniques and recipes for no-bake cakes.
Cakes are synonymous with celebrations. They are often the centerpiece of festivities, be it birthdays, weddings, anniversaries. This coming Mother’s Day, if you are having a hard time getting through delivery services, why don’t you try your hand on making one?
These no-bake cake recipes on YouTube usually require ingredients that you can find at home or that are available at supermarkets. And if you are on a budget, some of the recipe suggestions are practical — three to four elements and you are all set.
