Under the last day under the theme Take Out Menu , I have a Gems loaded chocolate cake in a MW . When I picked this theme the first thing that came to my mind was a cake . We normally get cakes for most birthdays, of course unless I opt to make them .I had been without a MW for more than 3 years , well the family is totally against it , but I somehow felt that we need , specially when the girls come in . There is so much chaos with four little kids and four older kids . My daughters and son in laws are the older kids , naturally . They come once a year and need pampering and so get into the kids category .
Anyway when I got the new MW , the first thing I wanted to do was bake a cake . Fortunately it was my driver’s son’s birthday , so I grabbed this chance . Valli shared the recipe and I was quite pleased with the way cake turned out . I poured some ganache and decorated it with gems.The little boy was more than happy to get a cake , specially with so many gems.
