  1. very stunning , simple but gorgeous looking too!! definitely must try recipe..Great job..keep it up

  2. Hi Salma, super duper recipes. so nice. I am Aswini's sister. I have tried baking cake. it is very nice as soon as I take it off the oven. But the next day the top layer becomes too moist. Where am I going wrong?

    1. Hi Kiruthigha,

      Glad, you visited my blog space and tried this cake. Once you, take the cake out of the oven, let the cake remain in the pan for 10 minutes. After that, invert the cake on a wire rack. Wire rack ensures proper air flow on the top and bottom of the cake. Never place the 'fresh out of the oven' cake on a solid surface...it will sweat out moisture and it will turn soggy and moist...Also, the top layer becomes moist mostly when you wrap the cake before it is completely cooled off. Allow the cake to cool off completely and then cover it with plastic wrap. Hope this helps...
