My cell group decided to celebrate the June babies' special day last Sunday and of course, I jumped on the occasion to bake a cake. What could be more irresistible or fail-proof other than a chocolate cake?
This is a scaled down version of my original intention of making a sophisticated looking 4-layer cake. I only made a 2-layered one. Not that it would be any more trouble or difficult, but rather, I think it would really be too rich to handle right after lunch!
What do you think about my decoration? Well, I liked it cuz it was my first decorated cake ever :) I bought those lovely sugar flowers and metallic balls a couple of weeks ago and was really eager to use them. But nice and pretty as they look, they are definitely not really the best thing to eat; they were a bit hard.
The cake was moist and fudgey, just sweet enough to go with my frosting. There was just the right amount of frosting to cake per bite though I thought the layer in between could be thicker. Maybe that's why I should not have any frosting leftover in the first place! Oh well, maybe I am just a frosting lover but I guess that's that's just me, because I saw some of my friends who scraped away the frosting! How can one eat just the cake without the frosting? Frankly, it is just not right, like a fish out of water, like a fork without a knife! Heck! I really just do not understand! But the cake received compliments all the same :)
Originally, I wanted to try Nigella's Chocolate Fudge Cake but I did not have the sour cream on hand to make it. Oh well, I foresee my next excuse to make a chocolate cake already ;P
