    Do you like this chocolate loaded cake? My children love anything to do with chocolate. Though I do not eat any baked items,  both Vibha and Sai always get me stuff related to baking. They know how much I love to bake. Vibha gets many ingredients which  I have not seen here in Chennai from Munich and Sai brings in all the ingredients necessary to bake a cake, while he is not sailing and will make sure I bake them and he usually loves to click it and enjoys eating too. While on his recent visit to Bombay he got me a lovely baking book on cupcakes. The pictures are so beautiful in this book. Does he stop with that? No. He gets me a lovely apron printed with cupcakes and whisks and everything to do with baking. He even tries to get me recipes to try. One such recipe is the poke cake and I baked this eggless chocolate poke cake specially for his birthday. I wonder how both of them find such gifts for me.

    Talking about kids, How many of you agree that they are our teachers as much as our parents were? I firmly believe that they teach us many things. We need to learn a few things and unlearn a few. From vibha, I learn how not to be judgemental, How to accept others as they are and being a firm person and believing in oneself. From sai, I learn how to put others ahead of me and how to genuinely be happy for others. Well, today is Sai’s birthday and he is far away sailing. So baked this eggless chocolate poke cake remembering how much he would have loved to photograph it and relish it too.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SAI. GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS. YOU ARE MISSED!

    The recipe link which Sai had sent me had eggs. I baked an eggless cake and followed the topping of that cake. The condensed milk chocolaty filling which seeps inside the cake will make the cake more delicious. Next comes the whipped cream chocolate frosting and if you are a chocoholic like Sai and Vibha, you will love the frosting too. It is whipped cream with cocoa and further topped with white Hershey kisses which are powdered coarsely. I sincerely feel that this is chocolate overload but I am sure it is super delicious.

    Birthday wishes to Sai ! Veena we are blessed to have such wonderful children who are so loving and caring , and yes our children are our parents now – Constantly they teach us , and I must say the gesture of gifting your passion gifts is so beautiful .
    The cake looks stunning and I wish I could eat a slice from it . Hey ! I eat cakes , specially chocolate .

    Such a heart warming post! My girls are still small, but sometimes I do feel that as they grow up, they tend to move from being our children to being our friends, provided we stay with them that way. Best wishes to both your kids, and may they keep showering gifts on you… 🙂
    The poke cake was in the initial list that I had put up for the Bakeathon, but then after baking so much chocolate plus not getting a chance to bake this since it needed a big audience to finish off, it sunk into oblivion. But I am surely making this for an audience. I can’t stop looking and drooling at your clicks… oh yum yum!

    My birthday wishes to an adorable son. Seriously you have written completely what i feel each and everyday about my kids. They are just wonderful, more than wonderful.
