You'd thought of such a great recipe as a Giant Custard Cream cake! It's a classic sponge cake mix with custard powder added into the sponge mixture as well as the buttercream. The decoration on the top was a bit fiddly and we improvised on the classic a bit! It tasted good.
Happy birthday to my neice Tia. She asked for a cake with chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate! This cake has a chocolate sponge, filled with vanilla butter creak with crushed maltesers. On the top and side, chocolate fudge icing covered with chocolate fingers and a few more maltesers.
I made a chocolate fudge cake topped with a dark rich ganache topping for my colleague and friend, Dini who left my workplace today after 14 years. Her catchphrase at work whenever I did a mistake was `What's the Story?' hence the writing on the cake!
" Birthdays are nature's way of telling us to at more cake." As the tradition at works goes - you have to bring cakes in on YOUR birthday. For my lovely work mates I made my ultimate favourite carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and a new recipe - sticky toffee cake. The toffee topping tasted like butterscotch and went well with the chunks of fudge on top.
