Top Review by Girl from India

Did everything exactly as stated! I very rarely do that but I did have most of the ingredients ready except the Canola oil (Must have made the difference). Whatever I did wrong it was not upto my expectations. It smelled and looked good but something in the taste did not appeal to my DH and myself! Sorry!
