Vanilla and Chocolate Layer Cake Recipe


This is the cake which i made for my hubby's birthday. I wanted to make a layer cake, instead of making normal vanilla or chocolate cake i decided to make a vanilla and chocolate layer cake. I decided to make a chocolate cake and two vanilla cake so it looks pretty when slicing it. I turned this cake into a fresh fruit cake and decorated it with fresh cream and fresh fruits..Since
