Sweet and salty chocolate cake

Well, that last post was a bit of an experiment with the WordPress app on my phone. I am sure everyone else knew about that, but I didn’t, so am now feeling simultaneously very technologically advanced, and still behind the curve.

We had a joint birthday the other week for my stepdad Pete and my uncle Tim, and I was asked to produce a ‘gooey’ chocolate cake. Fancying a challenge, I set about making the sweet and salty chocolate cake from the Hummingbird Bakery’s Cake Days book. It involves making two lots of caramel, mixing one with chocolate, and making some kind of fancy icing out of it which I’d never tried before, having first layered the other caramel onto the cake. It mostly turned out absolutely fine, and received rave reviews from taste testers, but I would like to make it again and do it better next time.
