Cooking can be so much fun when you have an awesome family to share with. As you know that my mom and sister had come to visit me, they had stayed 2 weeks with me and everyday was wonderful....its not only there presence that made things worth, but all the lovely dishes prepared by all of us together made everything entertaining . The 15 days I had with them was so awesome and fun.........missing them already :(. 

During the weekdays it was impossible for me to do anything special for them but the weekends I tried my best...... Baking Cakes have become a new weakness of mine, I even dream about it :) . Whenever I see a fruit or vegetable the very first thing that pops into my head is.....HOW WOULD IT TASTE IF TURNED INTO CAKE!!!.... My sister loves cakes so with my craze of baking cakes and her love for them, it was added in my to-do list :) and the smile she had with each bit made all the efforts worth-while. 

Well today's recipe is actually something I had day dreamt about, when I told mom about my idea she was excited too and the urge to try it was so intense that I had to make it instantly and got an hour late for office.......but the heart wants what it wants so my Spiced-Up Cake was born..... :)
