I have found a new love for baking in the last few months and have moved from the Mum that would only ever use a packet mix to one who is more than happy to experiment. So when Cake Angels offered to send me some baking goodies I was very excited. I thought Mothers day would be just the opportunity to share my latest bake with you. Made from my new Leiths cookbook, the Chocolate and Fudge cake was a winner, and you can find the recipe in the Leith’s cooking bible at the bottom of the post.
This mix makes a lovely fudgy soft chocolate cake. I think it would freeze well but have not tried yet as this cake doesn’t last more than a day in our house! Onto the decoration, and with the help of Cake Angels we made a super cake for our friend Miss L and the rest of the Steel Band. Everyone said how pretty it was and with lots of different types of sprinkles the boy had a great time decorating it. Cake Angels had sent us some icing, which is a great store cupboard item as it has a long shelf life and keeps well once opened for your next cake. The icing wasn’t too sweet like others I have tried and the Vanilla flavour made a nice contrast to the rich chocolate cake.
We loved all the sprinkles, from the chocolate whirls and hearts, to the pretty pink flowers. The boy decided to use Mario bombs on the cake this time, and thought they looked very effective. Cake Angels have such a great range of decorations that I am sure there is something perfect for every occasion, and I know I will be stocking up on icing, as my only go at making it myself ended in disaster!
