It was a mission making this, as it was my 3 year old daughter’s idea to make a chocolate cake for her Abu for one of her imaginative idea of pretend play, this time it was “Eid Party” so we had to bake a cake.
After giving birth to my second child (by the mercy of Allah) a month and a half ago, I haven’t had the chance to spend quality time with her. My toddler gets bored quickly these days as the cold weather creeps in and she’s stuck inside the house hence I’ve had to sacrifice more of my sleep and utilise that time with her, despite the constant screaming not to make a huge mess I do love the fact that I am able to give her some of my time and attention Alhamdulillah. Trust me it is not easy, some days are better than others and somedays you are beyond exhausted and just want to leave everything as it is and have a nap but this is a recipe for partial disaster because chores will just pile up, but hey it isn’t the end of the world.
I love chocolates and so does my daughter, my body craves for chocolatey goodness a bit more than hers therefore I had the largest portion of this cake in the house (shhh don’t tell anyone).
