Whenever I think or feel like baking a Tooti Frooti cake the very next thing which comes to my mind immediately is a hot brewing cup of the delightful Darjeeling tea. It matches perfectly & compliments each other very well.
The best thing about my tooti frooti delight is its aromatic fragrance which leaves me spell bound every time I bake it. The fragrance spreads beautifully in my entire house.
The tooti frooti which I have been using in my cake are candied raw papaya, which are being cut into small cubical pieces which are very bright in colors. Tooti Frooti are used in various bakery products such as cakes, buns, breads and also in ice-creams.
