BIRTHDAY CAKE WITH LOVE



It's 4 years since I celebrated my daughter's birthday,as being vacation time she used to be away from home for some reason.This year she is forcefully tied up here as she has stepped into her 12th standard and all tutions buzzing around her.
She was not particular on a cake as she had invited her friends for lunch.I decided to bake her favourite chocolate cake but never felt like decorating it as its too hot here and didn't have the patience.But my little niece wanted the decoration part as they planned to surprise my daughter by cutting the cake at midnight.Finally was happy with the result.
