This was for my niece's birthday today. She loves Gumball (it took 4 hrs to make out of fondant!) and she asked for a chocolate drip cake. She was pretty darn happy with it. 😍 I used Annabel Langbein's Ultimate Chocolate Cake recipe; my go to recipe as it makes 2 cakes at a time and tastes deliciously moist. I made a chocolate ganache and caramel filling, ganache around the edges and caramel on top. I used the Barker's Dulche de Leche to drip down the top after chilling the cake for 20 mins. I had to warm the caramel first to soften it and not all that happy with the drip result, but it tasted yum.

You can't beat a lemon cake. I have a couple of good recipes, with and without yoghurt. Thought I'd try doing a "naked" cake for a friend's recent birthday. Not sure why they call it naked, I'd say "semi naked"! Anyway, threw some flowers on the top and it was well received. I used lemon curd between the layers too.
