Once again I have been experimenting with making a variety of cakes, one in which may be the cake for my baby’s first birthday. I decided to try and make a chocolate and Nutella cake.
For this cake I used the same recipe I used for the double chocolate layer cake, but I instead made a Nutella filling and icing for the for the cake.
This chocolate cake has become a real favourite of mine, the cake is always so moist, chocolatey and delicious and when Nutella is added, it tastes even better.
The chocolate and Nutella cake was quite easy to make, the Nutella filling was made quite randomly by adding as much Nutella as I wanted so I got the right consistency for the filling and icing. The Nutella icing turned out to be quite creamy which was perfect for this cake.
When it came to deciding how I should decorate the cake, I decided that I would pipe rosettes on top of the cake and not put icing on the whole cake like I did previously. The cake ended up looking really nice.I was so happy with the outcome of the decorating of the cake that I did not cut a piece of the cake to try for at least an hour (yes I must be unwell).
I eventually had a taste of the cake and I was so impressed, once again the cake tasted really moist and chocolatey and the Nutella icing and filling gave it a nice creamy taste. The combination was perfect.
Next time I may add another cake layer.
I think I have found the cake I will bake my my baby’s first birthday.
The base recipe can be found on this website:
250 gram block of softened butter
2 1/2- 3 cups of icing sugar
1 tablespoon of milk
a couple of tablespoons of Nutella
Mix the ingredients together and then decorate the cake.
