My Birthday cake

To celebrate my birthday some of my friends were coming round for tea, cake & prosecco so I wanted to make a special cake to celebrate.

I chose the Hummingbird Bakery’s ‘Sweet and salty chocolate cake’ and luckily had some help from my sister in making it!

The recipe is in their ‘Cake Days’ book or iPhone app, but I also found it online. I would say this serves approx 20 rather than the recommended 6-8!!

You make 3 layers of chocolate cake and then sandwich them together with layers of salted caramel and a chocolate ganache frosting, with more frosting on top.

Here’s the making of the chocolate ganache:


And the assembly:


And the finished result…
