My chocolate cake collection is growing! I started compiling chocolate cake recipes from the very beginning. Chocolate cake is a frequent request from the guests which is why I try to keep myself updated with the recent trends. Although I keep my eyes open on the latest cake decorating ideas, I still do things spontaneously. Well, I've got to follow my instinct! That is what I learned after many years of cake making.
My list comprises of chocolate sponge, chocolate chiffon, chocolate truffle and moist chocolate cake. As for the frosting, its either chocolate butter cream, chocolate ganache, or chocolate mousse, a combination of vanilla and chocolate or chocolate ganache and whipped cream. It all depends on the flavor and design. Here's a peak of my chocolate birthday cake creations the past couple years working as a baker.
