The documentary shows the resilience and  stronger side of victimized women who bravely fight to survive and to get their identity back!

Chocolate Cake with Balsamic Strawberry Cream Filling

I saw this recipe on Deeba's blog Passionate About Baking and fell instantly in love with it. I was so impressed with her styling and presentation of this cake that I had it as my desktop picture for a week and each day I would look at her cake and drool! Then this amazing news about our first Oscar Award came my way and I knew that there won't be a better occasion to celebrate than this one with this amazing cake.

Although mine is not as pretty as her's but it was D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S!!! I have never had a better cake than this ever! What's there not to love about this cake? Chocolate, strawberries, cream.. do we need anything else? I don't think so!

Now you go and take the recipe from Deeba while I indulge in the last slice of this amazing cake which I saved for myself.. Yummm!
