TriColour Cake for Independence Day/ Azadi ka Jashn Tiranaga Cake ke Sath/ Independence Day Special

TriColour Cake for Independence Day/
Azadi ka Jashn Tiranaga Cake ke Sath/
Independence Day Special
Hi Friends,
Hope you enjoyed your day with the spirit of Indian-ism in your heart. Be it cooking tricolor food or flying kites.
I can remember my childhood days how we tried to fly kites and my brother use to make fun of us. Then they allow us to hold charkhi and flying kite for a while. Those were golden days but now we just watch kites flying high in sky. i encourage my kids to enjoy these things but everybody was so busy.
Yesterday was a hectic day for me as i was supposed to finished lots of work. So i thought to make a tricolor cake in the afternoon but in afternoon i got busy with something else and my plan went back to the door. By the evening i was too tired to make anything. But i was feeling so bad for not making anything for this special day. So by throwing my tiredness at bay i started preparing for the cake. I was having very less time for that so there i made few mistakes which i realised later but that didn't effected my spirit and joy of making a cake for my NATION. after making the cake i was all satisfied that at least i made something  Last year i made whole food on tricolor theme that you can see here
Here in this cake a made a mistake to not to measure the batter before dividing them in three parts result uneven colors layer in cake. Green was dominating, orange was fine and white was not that much visible. But that didn't effected the texture of the cake. It was spongy and airy. You can prepare batter and then divide and add color i think that would be more convenient. Use any spoon/cup/bowl to measure the batter that will give you more even layers. So guys now enjoy this TIRANGA CAKE a sweet note for my Nation-INDIA. ENJOYYYYYYY.

  1. You are suppose to work fast after sieving flour and mixing wet ingredients.
  2. You can also pour batter one by one to make it like zebra cake. That would be convenient. I made a mistake to not to measure batter before adding color that's why i got more green batter then white and orange.
  3. You can make batter first and then divide them in 3 parts and add colors.
