Prize Winning Chocolate Cake

House sitting in Redcliffe recently I decided to enter a chocolate cake into the cookery section of the Redcliffe Agricultural, Horticultural and Industrial Society Show. So pleased that the  cake won second prize. The recipe is listed below:

BUTTER – 90g
Heat oven to 180degC (160degC fan bake). Grease a 20cm round cake tin and line the base with nonstick baking paper.
Melt butter, add cocoa and stir until smooth. Add other ingredients in the above order. Beat for 2 mins.
Bake approx 1 hour in mod oven

The cake was covered with a dark chocolate ganache made with evaporated milk [not cream] - still very yummy and more economic!

Combined cake for 2 guys - 80 and 21 years young.

Customer contacted me by email and asked for a birthday cake for her son and father. No specifications so just did what I enjoy. I thought black and white were 'blokey' colours. I hope that they like Collingwood!
The cake is a 10 inch [25cms] round of three layers - chocolate, vanilla, chocolate covered with ganache and topped with marbled fondant.

Pom Pom Fondant Bow

Thank you to this customer who had a specific design for her daughter's 21st birthday cake. Never having created a pom pom bow before my fingers hit Google and came up with several tutorials. THANK YOU GOOGLE  and all those who gave me inspiration and pieces of info.
Oh the cake is a 10 inch (25cm) RICH DARK CHOCOLATE MUD CAKE - and I do mean rich!
The satin ribbons are attached to the cake by soaking in water and laying on the fondant after eliminating most of the water.
