If writing for Chocablog were a proper job, it would probably be the best job in the world. I mean… how many of you have a postman that brings you cake for breakfast with a friendly smile?
Thankfully, for the sake of my bathroom scales, Abi just sent a couple of slices of this chocolate cake, because it really is very good and if she’d sent any more I know I wouldn’t have been able to help myself.
Rather than being a light sponge, this is a denser, moister cake with two thick layers of dark chocolate icing. But rather than being heavy, that just makes this cake more satisfying. Combined with the rich dark chocolate flavours, it adds up to a slice of cake that leaves you happily full without being too sweet or sickly – something that was a definite problem with our Flake Cake.
Based on this small sample, I’d happily recommend you check out The Cake Nest if you’re looking for something a little more eye-catching and upmarket than the mass produced Cadbury cake I bought.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got another slice to get through…
