Chocolate Fudge Cake

"Chocolate, Chocolate, Full of Chocolate"!!. Posting a cake for the first time on my site. Made it for New Year.
2011 is an unforgettable year for us. A little boy came into our lives and my parents visited us & we had good time. My older son went to kindergarten. OMG He has become such a big boy now!!

Happy New Year 2012 to all my viewers, friends & fellow- bloggers.

Thank you so much for encouraging me and also for your wonderful comments
