Baking Adventures: Chocolate layer cake with cream cheese frosting

Baking Adventures: Chocolate layer cake with cream cheese frosting

It was S’s house warming yesterday, and I decided to take along a chocolate layer cake with cream cheese frosting for dessert. I followed a Donna Hay recipe from her magazine. I admit I was a bit apprehensive at first, as reading the recipe seemed to be greatly involved. She recommends using a 20cm tin – I thought this too big and hunted around (and found) a 15cm tin instead. It wasn’t an easy thing to find!

A similar recipe is the chocolate layer cake from the Junior Masterchef series, found here. I wanted white cream cheese frosting though, for a lovely contrast.

I halved the original recipe, and ended up with my chocolate layer cake. It was super tall, and somewhat difficult to transport. Hah. It was surprisingly much heavier iced too!
