I picked this pair of brown peep-toes from Tresmode over the weekend. I followed the anonymous advise on my shoe tag post here and moved to 14 from unlucky 13 for the count of my shoes :)
I was looking for a formal pair of shoes and definitely something non-black. I liked this pair in Shopper's Stop. The dark brown color will go well with most of my bottoms. The fit was perfect and comfortable and being made up of pure leather, should not cause sweat issues in Delhi's bad summers.
Price: Rs 1690
About Tresmode: Tresmode is an Italian brand and has been in India in 2007 in the major cities. However I hadn't really noticed them anywhere. It was recently that I spotted them in Shopper's Stop and liked their designs and they fitted very well. I have also seen an exclusive outlet in Select City, Saket.
Remember we played a game as kids where someone would speak a word and you have say what is the first thing that comes to your mind (without really thinking) when you hear that word. I am sure this game had a name but I can't recall. Anyway, if anyone would ever say 'Brown', the only thing I would say is 'Chocolate Cake'. I actually call this 'Mom's Cake'!
Mom's cake is something that I can never get tired of eating. It's a very light, fluffy and delicious chocolate cake with a nice rich flavor. And more importantly it is pretty simple to make (Of course if I can bake one, anyone can :)). Here's the recipe.
Mom's Simple Chocolate Cake Recipe
Flour: 1.5 cup
Powdered Sugar: 1.25 cup
Cocoa Powder: 1/3rd cup
Soda Bicarbonate (Meetha Soda): 1.5 teaspoon
Salt: A pinch
Chocolate or Vanilla Essence: 1 tbsp
Chocolate Color: 1 cap
Refined Oil: 1/3rd cup
Milk: 1 cup with 2 tbsp of Vinegar
Sieve flour, sugar, cocoa powder and soda.
Make a whole in the centre and add milk mixed with vinegar. Mix well.
Then add the essence (preferably chocolate but vanilla will also do) and color (this is not mandatory) followed by oil.
Finally break 2 eggs into the mixture and beat well (not for too long).
Then place the mixture in the convection mode in the microwave at 180 on the higher rack for 35 min.
Delicious cake ready, hope you like it!
