     Valentine’s day’ - The 14th Feb is the Day of Love The Day Of Romance or someone can say it as  a Day for special ones celebrates Worldwide. Though it is relatively new for us (Indian) but as we specially Bengalis hungry of celebration and food we celebrate it in our own ways. The sad part is that most of the time it’s a working day (I wish it could be a National Holiday J).My specials are my husband and my little Pari, they like fruit cake and chocolate cake very much .So I made basic sponge cake with chocolate layer for them this time-can be think of pre-valentine’s day celebration. I made this cake without any baking powder and baking soda. Before making the cake I was thinking of the fluffiness of the cake, but I got surprise result at the end as the cake came out a perfect fluffy.
