Birthday Cake!

So here we go. Welcome to the beginning. I thought I would start with something pretty, though this cake has plenty of substance too.

It’s the aptly titled “I can’t believe you made that cake” from Lorraine Pascales’ Baking Made Easy. A book which I think is great-excellent value for money with a wide range of baking ideas.

I made this for a dear friends birthday and it went down very well. It’s definitely one for the chocoholics and sweet-toothed! The interior is a basic chocolate sponge and it is encased in layers of very sweet chocolate buttercream. It’s definitely one I’ll be making again for the up and coming wedding party season.
