Black and White Cake

Black & White Cake

I have been very lazy in writing lately 🙁 Lots of posts need to be written because I keep experimenting with new recipes. Baking is the only thing which liberates me!! And the net is full of inspiration. My pinterest feed is overflowing with  drool-worthy bakes. This Black and White Cake was baked for my mom’s birthday in august. It was so  rich and sinful.  It comprised of a vanilla cake between two chocolate cakes sandwiched with a creamy buttery condensed milk frosting and topped with dark chocolate ganache.   A slice of this Black and White Cake is nothing […]

Peek-a-boo Cake

Peek a boo cake

I don’t like baking the same recipes again and again :D. I constantly have fights with mom because she is terrified when I enter the kitchen with something new in mind. But what is the fun in doing something you have already mastered. One should keep trying new stuff and upgrade themselves. I do revisit my tried and tested recipes occasionally.

But today I am in a sunshine yellow mood. Yellow for me is a very happy color. (P.S. I got my room walls painted a bright yellow once and my brother whom I then shared  my  room with was pissed off with me until the next whitewash 😛 ) “Bright yellow with some red” mood, Do you get the hint 😉 YES, […]

The Checkerboard Cake

Checkerboard Cake

I have been eyeing the checkerboard cake on pinterest for months now. But, without the Wilton checkerboard cake pan set, it seemed a dream.   But a little research on google lead me to several recipes for baking it without those special pans. Though, it seemed complicated and too much effort , but intriguing at the same time 😀 Several recipes later, I finally found a very simplified version on Fauzias kitchen. So, basically you need 2 different coloured cakes and lots of frosting. I opted for chocolate and vanilla cakes. And, its always better to bake the cakes 1 […]
