Eggless Black Forest Cake


Yesterday was hubby's birthday but we celebrated it on last weekend. No party! Just made him a cake and one simple meal.Yeah, it has been a hectic weekend.....plus I have a little project going on here. So, quite tiring.lol ! I even have problem frosting the cake due to my exhaustion. Lack of concentration at the same time. BUT the cake turns out unexpectedly good. :o) Thanks to Diane Marie (my dear neighbour) for your lovely eggless cake recipe. Everyone loves it.
