At last, this week i collected all the required ingredients, and i decided to bake it for my parents wedding day... :-) That was a great idea, because this Cake's taste was too awesome and the color was also astonishing :-) A heart shaped red velvet cake and cute little cup cakes for my sweet and lovable parents. It was a big hit, everyone just loved it.. !! :-) I was also so happy in accomplishing my dream... :-) :-)
