Eggless Zebra Cake

Once in a while there comes an opportunity to bake for a dear friend. RJ and I are from the same town, almost same growing up environment. Even though he comes from an entitled family, his heart is pure gold. He is down to earth and believes in working hard and paving a way for himself. This cake for a celebration of him, his birthday. 🙂
