Eggless Chocolate walnut cake ,Welcome 2015 !

Happy New Year dear readers ! Bye Bye 2014 and Welcome 2015 ! Let us all start this year with a new beginning . And since I wanted my first post of the year to be a cake, I will be sharing a recipe of an eggless cake today. I had baked this cake for my Amma’s birthday last December and it came out simply fantastic . Most of us in the house love naked cakes that is without icing or with minimal icing so  I chose this cake  from Divya’s blog which was in my to do list .

December month was a month of learning .Yes dear readers , I’m happy to shout announce I completed my  basic fondant and gum paste course from one of the best teacher in the world Mrs Subhashini Ramsingh  of Fondbites. I have been following her group and work from quite a while from now . And when she announced her Bangalore workshop which was a 3 days intensive workshop I was super thrilled and I enrolled to the course immediately with my family members concern .I must share I was one of the lucky person to have learn’t the techniques from such a great soul .

I was absolutely a zero when it came to fondant .  But Subhashini ma’am has made me confident and has given me that push what I badly needed . I believe in self learning and I have self learnt many things but attending a hands on class will make a lot of difference . I would want to attend  many more workshops in the days to come . I will make a separate post and post the cake pictures of my workshop whenever time permits ..Until then stay tuned for more interesting recipes .
