Planning and baking toddlers birthday party cake was an herculean task… The plan went from fresh fruit cakes ( nutrition and health in typical mommy mind), to colorful rainbow cake…and it all left me thoroughly confused. Our weekend to a popular Italian joint made my toddler’s fancy for chocolate and some classic continental desserts like mousses or tiramisu pretty obvious. A rich gooey chocolate cake with a cream filling was perfect! The cake didnt have a kiddie appeal, but when it comes to desserts, my son has a pretty matured choice! Since it was a toddler’s birthday party cake, I used Irish cream essence, however for adult cake, you can add a tbsp of Bailey’s or any Irish creme to the filling. The cake can also be drizzled with Irish creme or coffee liqueur mixed with sugar syrup for added taste.

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
