Vegan Banana Chocolate Layer cake

Yesterday morning I received a message from a friend that a photo from my blog is being shared by another guy in facebook.
It’s not soo simple. Firstly this guy have copied my photo, secondly he have taken the time and effort to come to my blog, copy my recipe, translate it in Malayalam and post it in his facebook and happily share it and not even a single mention of the source of the image or recipe.Grrrr. Plagiarism at its peak.Whoever did this shameless task should at least have the bare minimum courtesy  to leave a link or even a mention of the source of the image and recipe.
And what did I do : Politely dropped him a personal message, left a comment on his blog. Nothing rude. Just mentioned that it is a copyrighted image/recipe and appreciate if he removed it ( nice I am? I myself am impressed by my politenessJ)
Luckily my politeness and patience wasn’t tested for long and peace was restored  .The person apologized and provided a link of my blog as the source for the pic and recipe! 

Honestly I never bothered to watermark my photos , I thought Cyber copy cats will go behind goeey ooey food photos and who will be bothered to copy my average food photos! Anyways I have learned my lesson and started to watermark my clicks, fully aware that this is not going to put an end to plagiarism but at least I can sleep in peace.

Now coming to today’s special..It’s a luscious vegan cake. See you don’t really need pounds of butter or eggs to make a lip smacking cake. Vegan cake can be yummy too!
