Wishing you all A Very Happy Valentines Day
VANILLA CAKE WITH VERY BERRY COMPOTE
Lovely month of love calls for something extraordinary, something special.
To be in love is a magical experience. The feeling of being in love with someone is priceless. It makes people expressive and kindles the desire to pour our heart out to that special person.
Be it the fleeting minutes of romance that you had with your beloved or those special moments of emotional connect that you felt with your partner, every fond memory that you create goes on to last forever. Some will say it with flowers while others will bring on the bling. Others will get creative with customized dates while some will play it low-key with an at-home dinner date and together time.
However I have always believed that this special day of love is not only a lover's day but my heart beats out for close friends and family too who have been understanding, loyal and supportive in each and every step of my life.
So dedicating this Lovely dish to love of my life, my family and my friends.
Keep spreading love and happiness.
