Happy Friday, chronic crafties! I know that there hasn't been many crafty posts lately, I really must try to get my blogging and crafting mojo back, but in the meantime I'll share something that I whipped up a little while ago.
Earlier this year we had a huge family get together dinner, so I took the opportunity to try out a recipe I hadn't tried before from an old cookbook - chocolate fudge cake.
This cake looked pretty darn delicious in the book, and the dollops of whipped cream made it look extra decadent. Of course I just had to make it.
I was a little worried that it wouldn't taste anywhere near amazing as it looked, and that my attempt wouldn't resemble the picture perfect cake.
But decadent it was. It was moist, fudgy and everything else a cake should be. No one said much, but I think that was because they were too busy enjoying it - there was no left over cake at the end of the night. My crappy photos don't do it justice, it really did look like it does in the book!
For the icing I used a piping gun to create the dollops of whipped cream and then covered the cream with flake chocolate.
This cake was so simple and satisfying to make. It's from The Australian Women's Weekly Cakes & Slices cookbook. Give it a go, you'll love it!
