Thank you all soooo much, such sweet wishes!

Anonymous- You have to fold in the yolks and the sugar AFTER stiff peaks form (egg white).

The cakes look beautiful Bindiya. Wishing you both a wonderful Anniversary (albeit belated).

Its never too late to wish you both a wonderful anniversary & hoping that there are many more lovefilled years ahead.

The cake looks awesome. I really feel that we bloggers in Delhi should get together sometime. You know we could really plan out something.

Happy Anniversary to you both.

Hi Bindiya,

The cake looks too good. I have a question..can i make the frosting with fresh cream without using electric beater..bcoz i dont have one..can i use a mixer for it or a wire whisk will do..pls answer soon..

bindiya February 1, 2008 at 7:57 PM  

Anonymous- Yes ,you can make the icing using fresh cream, but not in a mixer, with a wire whisk, put the bowl over ice and beat well whilst adding icing sugar gradually.
