Easter baking with bakingmad.com

I hope you've had a good Easter whatever you've been up to.  I had plans to do lots of baking, but I was struck down with a horrible cold for most of the Easter weekend :(  I'm feeling much better now and just in time to try out a chocolatey Easter treat from bakingmad.com

I was sent some baking chocolate and chocolate icing sugar to play with, so I headed straight for the chocolate recipe section and picked out this classic chocolate cake recipe.  Although it's labelled as 'classic' and also as 'easy', the recipe was a bit more involved than the basic chocolate cakes I usually make, and you can really taste the difference.  This one used muscavado sugar, which gave the cake a really deep and rich taste.  

To continue with the chocolate overload (no complaining from me) I picked out this fudge frosting recipe to fill and top the cake as I wanted to incorporate the chocolate and chocolate icing sugar.  

And here's the cake, which turned out pretty well.  The recipe was clearly laid out and very easy to follow, so I was expecting good things!  My cake decorating skills leave a little to be desired though I think - I'm more adept in piping swirls of buttercream frosting than arranging Easter chicks!  

The recipes I used are here - classic chocolate cake recipe and fudge frosting recipe - and there are lots of other very tasty recipes to try at bakingmad.com - let me know if you give any of them a try.  Happy Easter!
