No Image Anamik :     30 December 2013
Hi< Decoration is also simple to do. LEVEL depends on hw U can fancy& imagine Simplest way is 1. Add dry fruits. small pieces in the dough before baking. 2. Pin Fried dry fruits over the top of baked cake. 3. <> get chocolate , melt it & paste over & circumfernce of cake! gives great shiny look.(any choclte will do) 4. write over the cake as per ur drawin&writin skills.(u can buy a writin cone from any bakry at 10-15 bucks) regards, All d best smile

No dear, water will spoil the cake. If you want you can sprinle some salt at the bottom of the cooker. But it does't impact cooker.
