Stained Glass Cake Recipe (Ideal for Summer!) πŸŽ‚πŸŒžπŸ’–

So it was a week before hubby’s birthday and I was browsing through recipes and checking what would be an ideal cake suitable for this hot summer weather. I remember going through a recipe for a stained glass cake which looked really awesome and colorful! I did want the cake to be different and decided to go ahead with the recipe.

The cake was a bit tedious but well worth the effort, the cake was a hit with the birthday boy and family πŸ™‚

So basically this is not an actual cake but more like a pudding cake, a combination of cheesecake and pudding, which makes it deal for this summer! and plus the jello glass effect makes it look awesome! πŸ™‚
