Chocolate ButterCream Cake l Cake Decoration

Vanilla Cake with chocolate buttercream icing is the most liked choice of cake lovers.This is the cake which i baked and decorated for My Man's birthday.Husband's birthday is a most awaiting and a big day for all wives to express their Love so am not an exception.Every year i used to bake cake for this day with special icing and lovely gifts to make him surprise.I used to think,think and think atleast before 3months to celebrate in a unique way,finally it happened too.I eagerly planned to post "How To Surprise Husband/Wife/Kids on their birthdays?".Hope it will be happened soon.

He loves vanilla sponge cake and not a big fan of chocolates.So in the icing part i added his favourite nutella and prepare Chocolate/Nutella ButterCream.Very simple to make icing and it tastes so good.He and my friends liked this cake a lot.My Little Munchkin Gautham helped me in sprinkling part.I had readymade sprinklers,coarsely ground slmond powder in hand after preparing instant badam drink mix,so i just used that for sprinkling which is the good combination with chocolates.With the remaining icing i prepared No Bake Biscuit Cake,it turns out so tasty.
