Mawa Cake

Cake brings a smile to every child’s face.People of all ages tend to melt with a great piece of cake, as though the child hidden in that huge body suddenly got awakened with that sweet fruity smell of freshly baked cake.


Growing up in bylanes of Andhra, I have spent many such evenings having mawa cake and mawa cup cakes freshly delivered by a man who would travel from a local bakery every evening with freshly baked cakes pastries and chips. His sight till date brings a smile to my face whenever I visit my hometown Vizag though the visits are fewer, memories of childhood bring back a huge smile when I see that gorgeous mawa cake.
