Chocolate layer cake with chocolate frosting and a mound of strawberries!I have been wanting to try this cake out since I saw Lorraine Pascal make on TV. Making a delicious birthday cake for my sister seemed like the perfect opportunity to give it a go.
Making the cake and frosting:My mum assisted by making the cake base ahead of time (as I was arriving on an afternoon flight). She followed Lorraine's 'I can't believe you made that' cake recipe and it worked out perfectly!
|Moist chocolate cake|
|Cut into two layers|
I made the chocolate frosting from the same recipe.
|Butter and sugar|
|creamed butter and sugar|
|added melted chocolate|
Decoration:For decoration we decided on heaps of fresh strawberries for the top, Arnott's Choc Fun Sticks for the sides and a final dusting of icing sugar.
|Frosting was added between the layers as well and all around the top and sides|
|used these to decorate the edge of the cake|
|add strawberries (fresh, halved)|
|Final product, dusted with icing sugar.|
