How to Make Panda Cake at Home

It is scientifically proved that kids are more innovative than adults and to back this statement, I have a story which says- There was the birthday of my son and he came to me and showed me his painting.

In the painting, he made a panda face. I said what is it? He replied I want you to make my birthday cake as same as the painting. By watching his innocent face, I said yes to him but I wasn’t familiar with the Panda Cake Recipe.

Just to keep my promise to my son, I called all my friends just to know how to make panda cake? There is a friend of mine who gave me the number of cake artists. I called her and I asked her about the Panda Cake Recipe.

She agreed to teach me the recipe of Panda Cake just as my son made in his painting. It took me some time to understand the recipe but I made it for my son and he loved it. I know there are many mothers like me whose kids demand such things and for those mothers, I will share Panda Cake Recipe.
