Choco Chip Chocolate Cake # Chocolate Cake

Happiness is in small things, how true this statement is :)

I do not remember having any B'day party with friends on my birthday. But my Dad use to make sure that we as a family celebrate this day as a very special day among immediate family members. He will bring home all the food items that we request him, while coming from office, such as pastry, chips, snack, sweets, ice cream, cold drinks, yes cold drink as it was not common those days :0  But yes, no going to Restaurant or calling neighbors for B'day or give and take of B'day gift business. B'days were special small family affair and still are in our house :).

Today is my eldest sis B'day and from last few days debt was going in my mind, what to bake on this special day?? a cake or cookies. And I finally decided that what could be better than a cake specially for her. I know I can not share even a single piece with her becoz of the physical distance, but still sharing it with through this virtual world and through  my thoughts as there is no distance that way :)
