Eggless Black Forest Cake - Eggless Cakes

Are you like me who WAS not very comfortable with icing cakes as you feared that it will not look perfect or professionally done.. Then this will be a perfect cake to practice your icing skills and also not be afraid as it will look great and so much professionally done. This was the first cake I did icing and now I tell everybody who is scared about icing to try this cake first as it is very easy. The amount of cherries, cream, sugar is personal choice. You can add more or less.

Caramel Sauce

I love the sauces that is served with the ice creams and the list is topped with caramel sauce. Did I know that it is so easy to make at home? No I did not as I did buy a readymade caramel sauce from the super market and licked it in the ice creams we ate at home.. Then I wanted to try this sauce at home and thought it would be so hard, but I was so wrong. This one is so simple and can be stored easily and used when needed. You need very few ingredients and I am not sure why I did not try this before. Enjoy your ice creams, shakes, cakes, pancakes and waffles with this delicious sauce.. Indulge!!
