Lovely Cousin’s Visit <3

Hello everybody.

Today I was really thrilled to meet my cousin coming for Summer vacation from Qatar, It’s been a long time since we saw each other and had lots and lots of catching up.

Though I was willing she’d come for lunch but due to her full schedule visit ended up in the morning and we had breakfast together.

I also made her favorite chocolate cake,we used to make it when we were in college every week,such great memories <3

Well truth is nothing beats cousins and good old friends,everlasting memories !

Chocolate cake recipies are various..I think one of the most searched and favored all over the world. This is my first and most successful ever ,  I even remember took it from my English teacher in 9’th grade,, though I tried many other recipies but I always go back to this one.
