             I am really passionate about making cakes and now I just make cake without any reason or occasion .But this time it’s my sister’s birthday who visited my place after her semester and I was really wanted to make a cake of her choice. This time she ask to make her favourite “Black Forest Cake” .Though I had made the same some time back and the result at that time was below satisfactory but this I was determine to make a cake with perfect sponginess, perfect in taste and perfect in decoration and I was very happy that this time it was The Perfect one. She was really happy and it was wonderful time that day.
             Few days back I made a chocolate cake and I used chocolate instead of cocoa powder, it was also too good and soft. I think it is the reason behind the success of the Black forest one, so presenting and sharing my experience of making “Black Forest Cake” with all of you and don’t forget to comment.
