This is my first cake recipe from Rose's Heavenly Cakes. You can find it here. All the recipes in this book are really detailed and complicated, and this one was too.
You'll need 12 eggs to make this cake. I only used 6 and made it half size. That's why it didn't come out as pretty as the picture in the book, because I had too little material to work with. It was hard getting the cake off the parchment paper, so I lost a lot of it in the process (and the parchment paper does not PEEL off!). But I seriously can't bring myself to use 12 eggs on a single cake. It was quite small, but very airy and chocolate-y.
The taste gets better the next day and I thought it tasted almost like my favorite chocolate cake from a hotel in my hometown. I haven't decided if I'm ever going to make it again, because there are so many more recipes to try out. This one really took me a lot of time to bake it, while the result wasn't that spectacular.
A few weeks ago I got the Happy 101 award from A Bit of Happy blog (thanks :D). I'm always so surprised when I get an award because I cannot believe that people are actually reading my blog. So, now that I got it, I have to tell you 10 things that make me happy (even though it's that time of the year when NOTHING makes me happy...) and pass along the award to 10 bloggers.
10 things that make me happy:
- my cat
- baking a perfect cake
- eating cakes
- passing exams
- being with my family
- watching my favorite shows (Grey's Anatomy <3)
- having free time, even if I don't know how to spend it
- going to the beach
- everything cute and tiny (especially cats.)
I'm passing this award on to:
The rules are:
- copy and paste the award on your blog
- list who gave the award to you and use a link to her blog
- list 10 things that make you happy
- pass the award on to 10 other bloggers and visit their blog to let them know!
