This is the cake done for an order from my neighbour during last summer..After spending the whole day in no- fire cooking workshop with 40 kids!...I returned home damn tired.. i got a call from a mother ,as she needs a basic buttercream icing cake within 2 hrs...I wrapped my apron ,it was burning hot summer,i did this cake,made the dinner, hand overed the cake and went for this review!
This is my mom’s recipe,she used to bake in late afternoons,screaming at me,not to touch the oven...I cherish those days through its wonderful aroma while baking this cake...So,use some good brand of vanilla essence and enjoy the cake...
