Orange Flavored Cake with Nutella Glaze

          My wedding anniversary cake !! The first anniversary we were together..Last time I was back in India & he was here in Dubai..Felt really really happy being together this time...Also our little Ayaan was also with us...I prepared this cake in a hurry, so i could surprise him when he arrives from office...& the cake was just ready on time...So couldn't click many pics... 

          The cake was prepared with soo much of love & affection that it had to turn out with perfection..May be my decoration might not be that beautiful..but its taste was something really awesome...We were just drooling over the cake..Finished it within minutes...One of his cousin was also there when we were cutting the cake...I was really appreciated for cake from both...Enjoyed the cake  completely ...Do prepare it for your loved ones...A juicy , soft & spongy cake...with the touch of the silky glaze of nutella & orange juice to melt it in our mouth !!!
