Chocolate cranberry cake...Mother's day and my first cute gift!!!

          It was a pleasant and a sweet surprise to all mothers who were waiting for their darling kids to come out of the playschool yesterday. As soon as the class door opened, all the kids cried out "mama" looking out for their respective moms.This is such a pretty sight and I enjoy watching this moment almost everyday. Everyone had some pretty colourful thing hanging around their wrists. It was a small gift for mothers ,the kids made with the help of their teacher on the occasion of mother's day. They had pasted a small glass on a paper plate and then decorated it beautifully by colouring it and pasting muffin paper cups on the edges. Finally the small glass was filled with potpourri. It was so beautiful and so touching, a lovely gesture. We were all so thrilled and I was so happy to receive my first mother's day gift from our son.
    Also a small note of thanks to the playschool teacher who was so thoughtful to do all this!!
            So Creative Saga celebrates mothers day with a delicious chocolate cranberry cake which I made for my son a couple of days ago. Happy mothers day eveyone and enjoy your weekend!!
        I am going on a vacation and so will be on a blogging break for a week. See you all soon.

Cake looks wonderful...and now coming to ur qn..I did try with red apple and the taste is little different and that time I didn't add coriander leaves so I suggest to U that you can try with red ones but do add the coriander leaves otherwise the chutney changes the colour fast...let me know the outcome :)
