Death by Chocolate Cake

Chocolate birthday cake

Death by Chocolate Cake is a super indulgent chocolate cake recipe from Mary Berry’s Baking Bible. The name itself is enough to suggest that this is one seriously chocolately cake and I have to agree. I decided that this chocolate cake would make the perfect birthday cake for my daughter’s 10th birthday. The chocolate sponge is incredibly moist but would benefit from a bit more cocoa powder or maybe a little less golden syrup. However, the chocolate icing is amazing and the recipe is so easy I would definitely make it again but would tweak it slightly. If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen the cake in the making.

Maybe I was mad but to celebrate my daughter’s big day I organised roller skating followed by pizza for her and her friends. What a crazy afternoon that was! I was completely shattered afterwards but my birthday girl had a fabulous time and loved her chocolatey birthday cake too.

Until next time.

    Yum, that looks delicious, although also quite rich. It looks like it would be nice with a scoop of vanilla icecream.

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to know what you think.
