Lots of things happened in 2015,it was a year of firsts for Arjun(and for us too!)and the biggest milestone was his first birthday.Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that I'd be baking his birthday cake for a party of 50+ people but I did.I'd been planning his birthday ever since he was only a few days old and thanks to God almighty,everything went well as planned.
I'd been thinking of updating the blog at least once in a fortnight but things are moving at quite a slow pace.I thank each one of you who mail me,comment here and try to keep the blog alive.One of my plans(not resolutions,coz those are broken soon:) is to spruce up the blog this year.I hope I am able to do justice to the plan.
Off late,I've started to write down recipes in my recipe diary just like old times.It just is so convenient when I have to look up a recipe.With my 1 year old around,it is not easy switching on the laptop or searching the phone,so this one sounds like a great idea,just look up the diary!This recipe is one such.I'm a sucker for recipes with Apple-Cinnamon combo and that combined into a cake is just a one-way ticket to Nirvana!
