Then it just needed a quick trip to the local shops for eggs and cream and some magic from Miss A and hopefully at some point during this week, I'll be able to furnish this pre-written post with a picture of the finished cake.
In the meantime, here's a link to the recipe online.

There's just something about me and chocolate cakes (excluding brownies) that just don't seem to be working well together on this blog. When we finally arrived at our destination, I realised that despite ticking them off from my holiday packing list, I actually forgot to bring my scales with me.

Lepard's cake is stuffed with whipped cream and jam before being slathered in chocolate icing. Because we already had an amazing cake in our holiday fridge on arrival (more on that another night - it deserves its own special post), I decided to cut down on the cream and just make a simple ganache for Miss A to spread over the top of the cake.
The flavour of the cake was really good. It just probably need a little less time in the oven and a little more filling/topping to disguise it's dryness. Miss A was really proud of her efforts and it was a good recipe to allow her to help with every single stage, apart from melting the butter and heating the cream for the ganache.
I owe it to this recipe to bake it in its true form another time. In the meantime, I'm off to polish off some more of the other cake before falling into a sugar-induced coma. Laters!
PS: It's been mostly raining with a tiny glimmer of sunshine!
