My work was running a cake sale for the MacMillan Coffee morning last Friday, with a competition for the best cake. Having recently discovered an amazing chocolate cake recipe, I thought I'd have a go. I gave it my best shot, and I'm quite pleased with the outcome. It was the first time I had attempted the chocolate wrapped around the outside, and so made a few mistakes, but I feel confident I could do it again much better. I have managed to crack tempering chocolate though.
The design I went with was inspired by a pin I found on pinterest while looking for inspiration.
Unfortunately I didn't win, but considering how amazing the winning cake was, I knew it would be difficult. I believe a very good sum of money was raised for MacMillan though, and I'll hopefully make an even better cake next time.
