    Hey guys! I have to admit- I'm a bit of a baking novice! However, I am ready to branch out this week and make my first cake (not from a box). I love lemon and carrot, and how can you go wrong with anything chocolate??

    Could you give me a delicious recipe that's not too intimidating?

    Hey jimyra, I cooked this recipe before. This is great. Thanks.
    I want to introduce a simple chocolate cake. You can see this bake recipe here. Soon I'll translate it to English and put it here
