I love baking. And then, celebrating a New Year with a delicious Cake. A perfect start for a coming year. I wanted to make this cake, from the very first day, I ate it in Cheesecake Factory. But, never got this opportunity. I agree this one, is not a healthy option, but then everyone needs a break from their regular routine of healthy diet. One piece of this cake, will definitely leave you completely satisfied. It's so easy to make, and the best part is, it was loved by my little one. My cooking and my baking is always centered around my kids fooding habits. Well, I think it happens with most of us (moms). And when, you have admirer sitting next to you, you are never going to miss this opportunity. Getting a compliment from my little one, is one of the pleasures, I am always looking forward to. Well, baking makes both of us happier, then why not. I always cherish this simple joy of baking cakes at home..
