    The small but mighty cake

    I was asked to do a wedding cake the other day for a lovely couple, Fiona and Louis.
    It was to be a simple but stylish 8inch square chocolate mud cake.


    This sounded good to me, as I am not particularly a fan of the cake covered in layers of fondant, with every colour under the sun, and looking busier than the pacific highway during peak hour!!
    I prefer something a little classier, especially for a wedding cake.


    This would have to be my most pain-free cake to date. It cooked beautifully in the oven and rose well. I could have kissed my oven there and then.
    My choc ganache set well, despite the humidity, and I managed to apply it to the cake without to many tears.


    I was a little nervous with the fondant as this was only my second square cake, but, again, the kitchen gods were on my side and it was perfect.
    With some pretty ribbon and fresh flowers we had a beautiful wedding cake!!


    I loved loved loved doing this cake...it was such a rewarding experience, and I can't wait to do another wedding cake.
