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
I am sharing the cake and decoration as separate post..Because if i share it in a single post then it will be quite a long post..Will be sharing the decorations tomorrow..Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
