    how many days its gud?

    • Lavanya Muralidharan

      You can keep it without refrigerating for about two days. It can be stored in the refrigerator for 5 to 6 days.

    What is the orange thing that you used for decorating? Also, what was the condensed milk that you used? I am planning to get some Milkmaid… You think that would do it?

    • Lavanya Muralidharan

      Thats orange food color dissolved in water. You can also use saffron dissolved in water. And, yes you can use milkmaid. I used Amul condensed milk.
