A Very Special 13th Birthday Cake

My eldest daughter turned 13 and wanted to bake and decorate her own cake.  She is giving me some competition!  Her chocolate cake was covered in ganache then the top was decorated with chocolate beans, including her initial, before the sides were covered in dark and milk chocolate fingers.  She definitely shares the chocolate addiction that my husband has!

The cake was baked using this recipe and she baked, decorated and photographed the cake herself.  I am SO proud of her!


I think my 13yo could run a business selling these to her friends!  Perhaps it will be a future pocket money earner for her.
