Tana's recipe was made in a tray bake tin, at the time of making I thought the mixture was quite dinky - once baked it was less than a centimetre high and quite dry. This has been frozen and is destined to be made in to cake pops! I then made Rachel Allen's Lamington cake. This produced a cake that was more the size I was looking for. So this is a bit of a mixed recipe as I had already made Tana's icing.
My only complaint is that covering the cakes in the icing is a bit messy! I speared each one with a fork and then holding it over the icing bowl I spooned the chocolate over. But then I found it hard to get the fork out without messing up the icing. I also tried a skewer but then several of the squares dropped off into the icing! If anybody knows an easy way to do this please let me know!
I took these some of these round to CrochetFriendS's house for coffee this afternoon. I had been practicing my treble crochet and me and CrochetFriendR had a lesson in how to do a granny square. Once I got past the first round I started to see the pattern emerging and found it easier to work - I'm not ready to show you a picture quite yet.....so I am off to practice some more.
See you next week.
