Lately... i've been craving to eat something tasty like coffee. Though i dont drink coffee but i love the cake that SMELL N TASTE of mocha!

Hmmm!....the aroma.....

Not that i detest coffee but after drinking...instead of making me awake all night...i'll have a heavy head or headache!

But it's not so for this delicious cake.....
