Birthday Cake

Hi Ladies !!!!

Yesterday was my elder son (Moksh's)  Bday. He turned 13 and to celebrate the occasion I decided to bake a cake with proper decoration and all. Nothing unusual about baking a cake, as I  do it every time, but, making an icing topping and decorating it with the same is something which I tried for the very first time.

 Since Thursday is a no non-veg day, I decided to make a egg less Lemon Cake. I picked up this recipe from, Nita Mehta's Eggless Oven Recipes and this is how it turned out.

Even though the kids and his friends showed appreciation, but I somehow felt that covering the lemon icing with chocolate shavings was a mistake. Because  chocolate and lemon does not  quite blend together. Instead of chocolate if  I would have sprinkled some shavings of lemon rind and replaced the strawberries with sweetened lemon wedges, I think the whole dish would have come together quite beautifully. Well, cooking is experimenting with new things and I think this is how you learn.

Have you ever experienced something like this????????

Do write in. I wud like to hear from you.

Have a nice day !!!!!



  1. It seems as if you know what might have made the cake better in flavour and taste. I guess that is what cooking is all about. Experimenting till you get it right! The kids loved it. So job well done.
