Today is my dear brother’s b’day! He is the person to encourage me with all my baking experiments by eating them all as soon as he could 😉 So I baked him some coconut cookies (Courtesy Nic of www.bakingbites.com) and A great black forest cake from our dear Nupur’s recipe. Its is so easy as I never thought I can make one at home! Thanks a lot dear!
Even though the cake was not looking so good it tasted very good. I did not have the cherry brandy and thus skipped it. Did not even substituted with the sugar syrup as at home they do not like wet cakes. Since I did not have a 8×8 pan I baked it in a bigger pan. This made the cake a thinner one so I did not try slicing it. Simply spreaded the filling on top and showered it with chocolate shavings. Everybody enjoyed it and yesterday night I started baking by 11.45 and I finished it by 1 PM. Thats quite fast is n’t it 😉
And for the cookies I topped them with some chocolate shavings too for a change and it tasted good. The photos are not so attractive I have to improve upon but the cake and cookies are over by now !
