Lemon Cake with Chocolate Butter Cream Icing


by: Aarthi

recently found that lemon and chocolate goes well together,so I discovered this cake and it was a huge blast..I made this cake for my sister’s friends birthday...I didn’t get a chance to look at the inside of the cake,since it is made for a birthday..I told my sister to take a picture of the cake after it has been cut,but she missed that..So sorry for that,but I can imagine how the cake will be after it has done its job “Lemon flavoured cake with creamy butter cream icing”.
