Vikram aka Vicky is our friends’ son and I’ve been his official baby sitter[though only occasionally] ever since he was as young as a six month old baby.It was while baking this cake that he expressed his love for me..er my cake.He is very fussy with his food and his taste changes every now and then making it difficult for me to cook for him.But if I say I will be baking a cake if he finishes his food,he will eat whatever I put on his plate.Little tricks I am learning..:)
