Yogurt cake becomes a yogurt bread

For a long time I just wonder how this cake was made, this is the 2nd time that I've tried to make it.
Like the 1st time my cake becomes bread ^^ and I gave it a new name "Yogurt Bread".
I think this is due to the "baking powder" and I’m going to try with another one for the next time.

US Visitor Visa : B2 Visa experiences 2016

You're working in France, you're not a France's Citizen and you want to visit the United States of America, you need to apply for a non immigrant visas.
Below my experiences step by step to get the U. S VISA for my vacation.

1- Determine VISA Type.
There are several categories of non immigrant visas, I applied for a B2 ( more type of visa here : https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en.html )

2-Complete the Online Application Form DS-160 and Upload your photo.
Photo must be 2 x 2 inches (51 x 51 mm) in size no other size is accepted.
Online Application Form DS-160 : https://ceac.state.gov/genniv/

3- After submitted your application form you'll be instructed to schedule an interview, at this point you'll need to pay to get your appointment's date.
Appointment website for the U. S Embassy in France : https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-fr/niv
Below some documents that I bring with me on the interview day :
     - Passport, 6-month minimum before expiration date
     - ID card (TDS : Titre De Séjours)
     - Working contract
     - Payment Sheet
     - Bank Transaction Sheet
     - 1 Photo ID (2 x 2 inches, 51 x 51 mm)

4- The Interview Day
I took one day off for the interview day. Arriving 1 or 2 hours before the interview time is no need, 30 minutes is largely enough. You'll not allow getting into the embassy without passing the security checkpoint. There is a long queue for the security checkpoint, you need to pass two security checkpoints. One is outside with security guard and another inside with the airport style. No water, no food are allowed to bring inside.

MoyMoy sends a letter to her master that is currently on their summer vacation.

I really miss you master.
MoyMoy is missing her master.
Dear Master,

    Since you go for your summer vacation and leave me at home with ToKaTa, I found myself very lonely .

ToKaTa is not like you, he doesn't spend much time to play with me.

Most of the time, he leaves me alone play with my DouDou (MouKa and Zari).

I try to send you a message via social media, but most of the time he catches me out of his working desk, It looks like he understands nothing. :"(

But one day when he is drying his clothes outside, I took control on his working desk and send you this message :

"(---------------------------__________________iè"

Waiting for your reply, I really miss you Master.

Moy Moy.
