My friend at work (the other work when I’m not making chai) made this incredibly delicious chai ice cream cake and I was blown away by how good it was. You can read her entire post here:

So Risa loves to make all kinds of stuff. Over the past 2 years, I can attribute my failure to lose weight to pretty much the all the cake and ice creams and cookies that I have access to at work. Now I’m not saying that Risa is solely to blame for that but she does make REALLY good baked goods!

It all started with a simple conversation about chai and how chai masala can be used in baking. So like any scientist given a hypothesis, we decided to test it out with an experiment! Risa agreed to make some Ice cream with it if I gave her some of the famous BCP masala. You can see it in the pic above with the cake, but here is another pic below:

So the first thing that Risa created was an ice cream and I’m sorry for the poor picture quality as it does not do any justice to the quality of ice cream that turned out with this chai masala! I believe she has a recipe for that on her blog as well.

This was followed by the chai cake which I’ve put pics of at the top but here is another one right before it was devoured by hungry techs and post-docs in a matter of minutes!

Finally, today she made some chai-chocolates with the leftover masala that she had. I’m not sure how she does it, making such delicious treats, but I’d like to believe that having the best ingredients like BCP masala might be a good starting point! 🙂
