You guys won’t believe , I was discussing about this cake with Haseeb and next day , saw it made in a cooking channel and knew that I had to bake it soon and the best time was my niece Ambreen’s birthday party …wanted to surprise her with this cake …it was for sure a hit or miss cake for me as I had never added beer in the batter but was confident that it would come out well as I baked with loads of love for the Ambreen and was very happy with the way the cake turned out ….
As I was baking ,Rasha requested to make small one for her so that she can taste and give her verdict .. She said it was the most moist cake she had ever tasted and everyone at the party loved the cake and got a special msg from the birthday girl Ambreen that cake was amazing and tasted yummm with the ganache on top…
