It was my FIL's birthday on July 9. But for some reason he was not in town and we decided to celebrate the same once he comes back. Since i had a good time in my hand to plan for the cake. Decided to try some other recipe other than normal sponge recipe. In such scenario,best place to hunt for good and different recipe is Joy of Baking . While browsing thorugh cake section , i stumbled upon the Chocolate Genoise and just thought to give it a try. I decided to frost it with cream. In Pune, we dont find heavy whipping cream. My only saviour is Amul's cream (25%) but the atmosphere was hot during the rainy season(as there was no rain) and i could not get the cream whipped properly so it was bit running. But it's okay. All along my FIL was observing me putting all the efforts to create a good cake for his Belated Birthday. Finally the layers were put together and frosted with bit runny cream and decorated with chocolate shavings on top. I tried creating some design on the sides by pressing fork on sides. I can achieve a little suceess. And the cake went into fridge to mature the flavours.
Needless to say , the cake was awesome !!!! Every one liked the cake very much and in no time it was out of sight. My father in law was very happy.
