Birthday is always a special day for every person. If you make a delicious birthday cake at home for your special one I am sure that the day becomes more special for him or her. I always try to make the day special for my beloved family members. But last few years I couldn’t do it for some reasons. Though making a birthday cake is time consuming and not so simple, yet when you will see the smiling face of your beloved one that will make you very happy and you will forget all the hard work.

Three main phases of work are involved while making a delicious birthday cake. Those are: Baking the main cake, preparing the butter cream and making the whipped cream. In this recipe I have discussed the three phases separately. I also made this cake without using baking powder. Believe me the taste of cake was delicious and different.
