Funny looking 15th anniversary cake


My husband and I are not the type who celebrate anniversary or birthdays. But this year as I was bitten by baking bug and i decided just for fun to bake a chocolate cake and would try to decorate it. I found the recipe here Old-Fashioned Chocolate Cake. I never decorated a cake before so i found out that i am lacking creativity ha ha ha....so ended up with very funny looking cake. But i like the texture of the cake, not dry but not so moist either. A good cake for decoration and nice tasting too. Sorry that the pictures were not very good as the battery of my digicam went dead. I got to use my crappy handphone camera. Could not delay the cutting as my in laws happened to drop by. I did not used the original icing as called in the recipe, i just used fresh cream and a little bit of my chocolate buttercream icing for the filling and the brown flowers on the cake.

I just whipped a bit of butter, icing sugar and cocoa powder for the filling and whipped the fresh cream to ice the outer cake.
