Chocolate Cake for the Chocoholic





I made this Chocolate Cake for a small gathering at home yesterday.
Though I have made several chocolate cakes before but this one turned out to be the best so far..Extremely moist, perfect taste and the right amount of sweetness... The verdict of the guests... "Mindblowing" ....
I was happier for some other reason though .. :)) My brother-in-law had got me some very nice chocolate modelling paste from the UK some time back and I wanted to try some chocolate modelling since then. So the decorations that you see here are with pure dark and white chocolate...
I made the white chocolate modelling paste at home and the dark chocolate was the ready made one as I wrote earlier. The home made one needs improvement and I will experiment with it further to get the paste right while the ready made one worked really well. The chocolate decorations were very fast to prepare and was very happy trying something new.

Catch ya soon,
Ciao
Swati

Dear Swati,

It is a very tempting picture of a delicious creation. The hardwork that must have gone in - along with the daring (trying out a new combo) has paid off, surely.
As usual, you surpass all expectations of beauty. Nice to see a Chocolate getting your attentions.
Keep up the mindblowing (creativity).

Dear Swati,

Awaiting your new Sweet and Floral creations....your creative expression brings a joy and a visual delight...and one can imagine how wonderful the suff must be to taste, hold, and appreciate in 3D. But, since that is not possible - at least the visual delights can be there, no? So, I eagerly await your next post.
