Happy to take any opportunity to bake, I offered to make a birthday cake for my future brother-in-law's girlfriend.
Chocolate mud cake with chocolate ganache icing and Jelly Belly Jelly Beans galore.
I had a slight drama in that I stupidly underbaked the cake.
As appalled as I was at my lack of judgement, the mini crater in the middle of the cake worked out well. I simply poured the ganache icing into the mini crater to give the cake an extra chocolatey surprise with each slice.
The birthday girl loved it!
