Basic chocolate sponge cake to a beautiful rose cake

It is our anniversary today....I have spent the best 7 years of my life with Mohit....He has always been there whenever I needed him and stood like my backbone for whatever I did...He have very patiently handled my temper tantrums and given me his credit cards for my shopping sprees... lol.......And moreover he was the one who encouraged me to write this blog and sat with me for hours to  make my space.....I am truly blessed to have him as my life partner......What better way to celebrate this wonderful day with a beautiful cake....I have bookmarked the rose design from http://iambaker.net sometime back and decided to do it for this day....The chocolate cake is my very old basic chocolate sponge recipe....

  34. How did I miss that yesterday, Happy Belated Anniversary, Neha. "Yeh din har saal isse jyada khushiyan leker aaye". When I first looked at the cake I though you ordered it. Then I read the whole post. I don't know how the cake tasted because you have not shared it. But the roses look be..autiful.
