Tea cake is something that Lil Angel has been asking me to bake for quite a while now. Then one fine day I set my mind to bake it and it pleased the lil one to no end!!
The cake turned out so good and the pictures don't do justice at all! The kids were so eager to taste the cake that I literally did not have the mind to make them wait any longer. So I just clicked a few shots and handed over the plate to them.
