Charcoal Chiffon Cake

Baking is contagious, especially so when you are connected to baking friends on your Facebook, or baking groups. When I saw Veronica with her charcoal zebra cake, it reminded me that I have still have charcoal powder to be used.

So here is my Charcoal Chiffon Cake. It's really light and fluffy, tasted sweet, with a hint of sesame. Can't taste the charcoal though.
