Dear All,

Chocolate Pound Cake,Chocolate Coffee Cake,Chocolate Almond Pound Cake,Chocolate Chocolate Chip Pound Cake,Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

Change is always very painful especially if you are changing from your very first company to another. First company is like your first love which one really cannot forget! You all must be wondering what the hell I am talking about....well I recently switched from my previous and first company to another details of which I have already updated on my FB :-) Honestly there is lot of excitement as well as little sadness as I really miss my old company. The beautiful campus, my colleagues, my friends and each and every moment I have spent in my last 4 years here brings tears in my eyes. But I am happy that I am moving ahead in my career to take on new opportunities and challenges!

Yes and for all my colleagues and well wishers I prepared this cake which was till date on of my best cakes I have ever made! I was so impressed by the taste and texture of this cake that I have already made it twice in a week!

  63. Hi Parita. I want to try my hand at cooking. and I plan to start with baking the cake you mentioned above :).
    Can you tell me where I can buy choco chips from? Which brand?
    Thanks. Waiting for your reply :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hi Anonymous :) chocolate chips would be available in shops where you get cake/baking tins etc. if you are located outside india its fairly easy to get choc chips as any big super bazar would be having..if you are in mumbai..you can get choco chips at arife opp andheri station west. arife is also present @ crawford market :) hope this helps
