Chocolate Cravings

My Dad really likes my chocolate cake. No but really, he really really likes it. Everytime I visit home its one of the first things he asks me, "where's my cake?". He's joking, but he's also not. So of course, after not making a chocolate cake for christmas, I was obliged to make one for him just before I left.

Normally, when I make a chocolate cake I make chocolate buttercream to go with it. Why? Because its just the done thing. Decadent chocolate cake just demands to be covered with equally decadent chocolate buttercream. However this time, it being a new year and all, I decided to break away from the mould and have a little fun with the caramel sauce I had in the house.

Lo' and behold, the infamous chocolate cake with caramel buttercream icing...oh, and sprinkles on top. You know, for new year and all!

I don't know why, but sometimes I just find that cakes look classier in black and white, is this just me?

Til' next time!
