lol made a little mistake, added 200g of cocoa powder instead of 100g! (the joys of cooking with kids) BUT still yummy, moist cakes a must for any chocoholic! and the perk to the mistake?? you can only manage 1 at a time lol - 06 Jun 2011


Lovely! Great to make with the kids too. I cut out the tops and spoon in some black cherry jam. Pop the tops back on and cover with vanilla butter cream for a very yummy black forest cup cake. - 22 Feb 2012
