  15. hi Smita
    I visit food blogs regularly (mainly to look at how creative people get with pictures) and very rarely I comment.
    Your creations are mind blowing to say the least. I have no creativity at all. But I certainly can enjoy if someone else is creative and I truly enjoy your blog though only first time in yours.

  16. Thanks for stopping by my blog n writing such lovely comments .
    Dear Anonymous - Creativity is something that exists with everyone
