Another week….Another missions to be accomplished….Another wait for the next weekend….and the life goes on…I am the kind who doesn’t like to be at home on the weekends…So I keep on searching for the new places to visit…One of our cousins told us about this garden and we made a plan with them to go there…The visit was truly worthwhile with the weather on it’s awesome end…..We spent an entire day there and kids had a real good time….

Park had a small patch of tulips in lots of colors….There were water bodies through out the park with lots of fishes and ducks…I saw the cherry blossom first time ever in my life…It was magical….I just felt like sitting there forever and absorb all the beauty that nature has offered us….If you guys are near La, you must plan a visit to Descanso garden….It’s worth the 8 dollar ticket…..

last weekend , I made a doll cake for a friend’s daughter’s b’day….I want to share the pic with you guys…It was my first attempt at making a doll cake, and it came out decent enough…..

I have bookmarked today’s recipe from http://mayflaum.com and was wanting to make this for a long time…The recipe is very easy and can be done in a jiffy…So here it is….

All you need is

All purpose flour-2 cups
Sugar-2 cups
Baking soda-1 tsp
Baking powder-12 tsp
Cocoa powder-14 cup
Salt-12 tsp
Cinnamon powder-12 tsp
Eggs -2
Butter-1 cup
Coco cola-1cup
Butter milk-12 cup (I didn’t had buttermilk so I made mine by adding 12 tsp of lemon juice to 12 cup of warm milk and  let it rest for 5 minutes )
Vanilla extract- 1tsp

For the Glaze

Butter-12 cup
Cocoa powder-14 cup
Coco cola-12 cup
Confectioner’s sugar-4 cups
Walnuts-12 cup ( chopped )

Method of preparation

Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees
Grease and flour a 8’square pan
Mix flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon powder and salt in a bowl
In a pan ,heat butter, coco cola, cocoa powder and buttermilk, until it starts boiling
Add this mixture to the dry ingredients
Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix
Pour the batter in the baking pan and bake for 30-40 minutes, till a toothpick comes out clean

For the glaze

Heat all the ingredients in a pan and bring to a boil
Remove from heat
Pour over the warm cake and let it set for an hour

I like to eat mine warm with a dollop of ice cream…

This is probably the moistest cake I have ever made…..and the easiest one too….It just took me 5 minutes from start to putting the cake in the oven…This recipe is surely a keeper….
