The Best Chocolate Cake Event Round-up!!

The Best Chocolate Cake Event-an event for celebrating my 2nd Bloggiversary and 300 posts.

I am a big Chocoholic myself and can never say no to a Chocolate Dessert.When it comes to cakes,no prizes for guessing that I am fond of chocolate cakes over anything else.I have,from personal experience,found that a slice of decadent chocolate cake can shoo away your worries and tension,at least temporarily.Yes,chocolate has that power to transport you entirely into a chocolate heaven!!!

So it was no wonder that when I decided to host my first event on Easycooking,Chocolate cake was my first choice.Though I have baked quite a few chocolate cakes myself,I madly collect recipes of the same hoping to try it out next.

I got 34 wonderful entries from 25 bloggers and one non-blogger[my co-sis] and 4 entries from me.Thank you all for making this event a grand success.

As promised,the winner for the giveaway was chosen by a special guest.By special,I mean REALLY special as I've known him since sometime now and now he is a rockstar.Yes,I am talking about the latest IPL sensation-M.Vijay.

And the winner is...

Aliena of What's Cooking today wins the book 1 mix,50 cakes.Please get in touch with me at divyakudua@gmail.com to claim your prize.Congrats!!

Without further ado,let’s have a look at the round-up!!

My Vanni made this Fire engine cake following a Youtube tutorial.She has not had any training or so in Cake decorating and I think she has done a splendid job of making it look pretty.Impressed by the cake my vanni made for her daughter's birthday,she got an order for a Birthday cake for an 8 year old boy and this is the one she made.She has used this recipe-Chocolate Yogurt Cake,as base and did the icing with Marshmallow fondant.
