Double Layer Chocolate Cake with Flowers

20 November 2015

So this is not really a recipe sharing post. As in, I’m not sharing the chocolate cake recipe that I used, because it wasn’t that good.

I was actually just practicing my cake decorating skills and seeing if I could bake two small cakes at the same time in my oven. Answer is: Yes!

I snipped a bunch of pretty flowers from my mother’s garden and made sure that I washed them and patted them dry – because one time I found a whole lot of baby grasshoppers in them EEEEEEPP!! That’s because my mum doesn’t use any chemicals or pesticides on her roses!

Then I made up a bowl of chocolate frosting.

Again I’m not going to share the recipe, because I don’t know the measurements of the ingredients.

I made it from leftover ganache (melted chocolate and cream) that someone gave to me and I added icing sugar to it until it was a good spreading consistency.

It tasted amazing – rich and creamy, yet still soft, buttery and fresh.

I stacked the cakes up with a layer of chocolate frosting in between them.

I kept the whole thing looking messy and natural looking.

Then I decorated it with slices of oranges, raspberries, blueberries, chopped walnuts, pepitas, roses and flower petals.

It looked so good! I was so happy with it!!

(Everyone said it tasted amazing, but I thought the cake was a bit dry and crumbly…)
