Cuddly Bear Cake

New Year 2011 is knocking your door and may it be more fulfilling for you than all the previous years, unfolding new horizons and realizing new dreams, discovering new strengths and believing in yourself, rejoicing in simple pleasures and gearing up for the new challenges, building new bridges and walking distant  miles, calling up a forgotten friend, walking tall and smiling more and of course,  last,  but not the least,  trying out new recipes from “Bring On The Chef In You”  and bringing on that hidden “Chef” in you 🙂

This Cuddly Bear Cake is dedicated to you all from the “BRING ON THE CHEF IN YOU” team of  Joyce Alvares, Sylvia Dsouza and Judith Serrao. Lets “Bring On” the New Year with gladness in our hearts. Cheers!
