Chocolate Cake Trial


I was asked by a dear friend of mine to bake a cake for her son's first birthday, and so the hunt for the perfect chocolate cake recipe began. I remembered I had seen a really nicely decorated cake on the wonderful blog of Tove's, Baka baka liten kaka, that I was just dying to try. The cake contains loads and loads of whipped cream and nougat and all kinds of yummy stuff, BUT, it just wasn't what I was after, I realised I am more fond of a dark chocolate sachertorte with apricot jam, even if all that nougat sounded fabulous. So above you see the nougat version with a sugar, cocoa & buttercream frosting, wasn't very fond of the consistency of the fillings, so I opted for another recipe for the actual birthday cake. I did stick with Tove's wonderful idea of using nougat wafer rolls as a border and a ribbon to tie it together, will post pics of the actual cake in a bit.

See you soon!!
