  7. Can you tell me what cream is that? Is it just Amul fresh cream which has been beaten well? How to get that thickness? I felt my cream will be runny, so cant assemble the cake.

    1. AMul cream cannot be made thick for some reason. I use whipping cream powder or frozen whipping cream

  9. I made this cake today and it turned out simply awesome! I am amazed at myself 🙂

    Thank you for all the tips. The basic chocolate cake was simply superb. As I did not have two same pans, I just baked in one Pyrex bowl, and made the cake 4 inches high, and sliced it horizontally.

    If we just follow every step in this recipe and read carefully, it will surely turn out superb!
