Thank you Nigella. When you convince me to make a cake, you do me proud. This cake was for Louis’ 11th birthday, so had to be good. The only guidance he gave me was that it was to be chocolatey.
It took me a while to make the cake as I was taking a few digital photoshop classes on good old youtube and vimeo whilst making it
I was good and lined the tins properly. I don’t always do as i’m told but I always do as Nigella and Delia say, as they know best. Not in a know-it-all way, just in a know best way.
The chef whisking cream and butter together.
I can’t be trusted (because I am learning photoshop).
Chucking, erm, pouring carefully the cocoa/butter mix in.
Is that choc on your lips Mr Tester?
Mr Paul Hollywood would say that the cracks mean that i’ve over baked it.
So good job he’s not judging and my kid is
Bit of ganache-y scrummy will cover it up.
And a cake made for a smashing boy who i’m so proud of.
I am very grateful to him that he has grown out of Thomas the Tank Engine and other difficult cakes!
