      Thank you so, so much! Tell your daughter that sometimes it does take a video, or a good visual to realize that baking really is easy!

    Hi Marina. I really liked the video. The music reminded me of Japan. I liked the moment when you cut the cake – it looked very fluffy.
    My kids also love to watch video recipes with me. They inspire them to bake!

        Hi. I finally baked the cake. It turned out too sweet for me. And chocolate chips didnt melt inside (which is not the recipe’s drawback). I guess chips were not of the best quality. But I like the density and the taste of the cake – crumbly and buttery.

        • Hi Oksana,
          Typically the white chocolates don’t melt but just kind of add the flavor into the cake, so it probably is not the quality but just usual white chocolate behavior not to melt.
          In the future, if you make it again, you can reduce the amount of white chocolate in the cake part itself to reduce the sweetness.

    Hi,

    Can I make it the day ahead and place it in the fridge or is best eaten fresh?

    • Hi Ruslana,
      This cake is good next day just as it is the first day. So yes, you can make it a day ahead. Just make sure that you follow the recipe and presoak your dried cranberries.
