It was my brother-in-law and mum's birthdays at the weekend so I made them a joint birthday cake as a surprise for after Sunday dinner. I wanted to try a new recipe and I don't have a no fail favourite chocolate cake recipe so I decided to try the chocolate layer cake from the Primrose Bakery. It was AMAZING.
It was a lot of work as you have to melt chocolate and also whip up egg whites seperately, but I think that this gives the cake a really light but chocolatey taste. The icing is equally amazing. I think I will try making this a few more times to really perfect it. I have just had a piece tonight that was leftover from when I made it on Sunday and it was AMAZING. I warmed it up slightly in the microwave to make the frosting go all lovely and gooey but even when I was cutting it it still felt so moist.
You can find the recipe in Cupcakes from the Primrose Bakery here, or why not try your local library? (My library has a copy so it's worth checking out yours too)
