Surprise birthday cake, part of my plan to cook/bake more and new things. No photoshoot, we were to eager to get to the eating part.

It is fun and easy to make, not too pretentious, but elegant and delicate. Despite its dense texture, it is not too sweet and chocolaty enough. As for the recipe, you can find it on videojug.

Have a sweet week, my friends!
