Happy Mother’s Day

Wishing All of you a Happy Mother’s Day!!!!!

I was really happy to get the above surprise present and song from my daughter this morning. Though i knew that she had something hiding in her room on Friday evening after her school,to surprise me on Mother’s day. I pretended that i don’t know anything about what she is doing. She made a Heartin Bag full of puzzles, which says I LOVE LIEBE (dear)  MAMA and greeting card in the school with the help of her teacher. I too wanted to surprise her and made some cookies, which she liked very much. Well!! I called my mom and wished her too.

  2. Butter- 100 gm, in room temperature
  3. Sugar – 50 gms
  4. Salt a pinch
  5. Rock Sugar – 1/4 cup for decoration
  6. Jam – 1/4 Cup for decoration
  7. Coconut – 2 Tsp , desicated
