Chocolate Birthday cake(eggless)

Its been such a  long time I have baked anything and I miss   baking  so badly.Yesterday was my Happy Birthday readers.All I could do was bake a simple cake since my house atmosphere is on exam mode.And baking something new was a great risk due to time consumption,but  if the recipe is from Divya's blog one can blindly go ahead without any fear and that's what I exactly did.I had bookmarked the recipe long back and followed the instructions exactly how she mentioned.The result was successful without any doubt and I am a huge fan of Chocolate so are my darlings at my place.There was absolutely no time to decorate the cake and I randomly took pictures.Few more days to go and Ill be back in action.And coming to the conclusion of this post I would like to give  my vote of thanks and  thank all my readers for all the support and the likes.I will try my best to do still better in the future.
