Eggless Red Velvet Cake. This cake was baked for one of my good friend in my apartment on her birthday. After seeing the cake she was very happy with look and the taste. Since there are few friends in our group are vegetarian and they don't even eat egg, so only I had to bake eggless cake. Otherwise I love the eggs in cakes. The cake had turnout very moist and tasty. I could not cut the piece and take a picture from inside since it was a birthday cake. But its in my list, next time when I bake this cake then I'll take a inside picture and update on my blog. I'm sure when you'll try this eggless cake, will definitely leave you speechless..
