I still remember the time when I only get to eat cake on birthdays. I used to wait for birthdays and pray for invitations. I used to think cakes are something that only professionals can make. Ah! Those good old days! As I grew older I realized not only we have done so much advancement in technology but in food as well. Cakes, pizzas, stakes and the list goes on, only found in some big fat restaurants but now with little hard work and good recipes we can make them at home.

Cakes have always been my first love, no matter what I have beside them I would choose cakes. We have long list of cakes from chocolate mousse to lava cake every type of cake gives you heavenly experience. I tell you even just thinking about these makes me drool.
