" Baby I love you and Happy Valentine's Day "
Although I had tons of recipes in mind. I was more focused on something that we both love and I narrowed down on this lovely dessert with is light and so easy to put together. We both love Balck forest cake and I have been longing to do it. But having an anniversary falling on the same month I wanted to keep a cake for later. I had lots of friends ask me "so what's special for Valentine's Day?" and here it is I whipped this dessert. When I was chit chatting with one of my bloggie friend Divya Prakash on what we were planning for V day it so happened that she also planned the same trifle and the same recipe infact. Now that came as a super sweet surprise :-)
