Well am really looking forward to that extra chocolatey cake when the chocolate sauce sets a little bit more as its about an quarter of an inch thick, I cut out some of the middle of the cake and filled it with a lovely chocolate sauce, it's a practice run for a chocolate cake that I want to make for my youngest sons birthday..πŸ‘πŸ˜‹

I agree πŸ’•

No no, after my son's birthday I will definitely give it a rest on the cake making..maybe the occasional almond macaroons as a special treat, I don't want the weight to start creeping up on me again 😊

In a recent TV prog in UK, about changing eating habits, not sure whether it was to save money or eat healthier, they compared the ingredients in a shop bought cake against homemade. On all fronts, the consensus was if you are going to have a cake for a special occasion, better to bake one yourself - but they didn't say how many practices you're allowed 🀣 and they certainly can't have seen any of my past efforts!

Am a hundred percent sure the ingredients I used are in the chocolate cake are much better then what I could buy here in pattaya. I used the best chocolate, olive oil as the chocolate will over power the taste, and reduced the sugar to a minimum but still keeping it sweet enough for the children to enjoy, it really was very delicious.Am leaving the birthday cake for my wife and eldest daughter to make as they want to do it 😁

I bet your a real dab hand in cake making and your just being modest πŸ˜‹

STOP IT! You're making me think about having a go at making one without a special occasion in sight 🀣

You could make small one because there is no special occasion in sight..πŸ‘πŸ™‚Am wishing now a had a big slice of one right now, but not to worry my wife and daughter are making I big one tomorrow, I probably make a small one just for me with cherries and whipped cream inside πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

I think home made cakes are best as they taste more real and I love that I can control how much sugar I use. I tend to put less then the recipe requires that way it's not over sweet and can be enjoyed better.

Your absolutely right about the sugar, I find even reducing it by have or more from what I see on the recipes we all still feel it still nice and sweet. The cake really was delicious 😊

It is now πŸ™‚

Baking done is your title and I must congratulate you on a job well done. πŸ‘The chocolate cake looks decadent.
