To every rule there is an exception, they say. So thus my no-bake journey. Yesterday was the birthday of my Lady Boss. To make it extra mega special, we baked a BLACK FOREST CAKE! ( I mean, my office mate did the baking, and I just took a lot of pictures!) Really, I thank Ms. Edan for the recipe.

Actually, my officemates thought that we bought this Black Forest cake from a nearby nationwide Cake Store. Having it said, I guess this recipe deserves 5 thumbs up.
