Chocolate Birthday Cake!

I’m still not allowed to eat it – so thought I would write about it instead.
Chocolate Birthday CakeI used the Ultimate Chocolate Cake recipe from Good Food for the cake, which I ended up splitting into 3 small tins as the bottom of the tin I wanted had gone missing.  They only took about 20 minutes/half an hour in the oven this way not the hour and a half the recipe said.  I then put chocolate butter icing in between each layer and covered the whole thing in a thin layer with the rest.

The chocolate shavings were made by sliding a knife along a bar of chocolate which got chocolate everywhere but looks nice. And I found the small chocolate hearts and stars in the cupboard.

Well we haven’t tried it yet as it’s being saved until after the Chinese feast I am making tomorrow night!!!

Happy 21st Birthday to my little brother!
