  1. I have been wondering if I should use this recipe for my son’s birthday chocolate cake. Is it a dense cake? I was wanting to use half to make cupcakes with too.

    • Hi There…

      There is no doubt that this is a fabtastic chocolatey recipe, the cake mixture is relatively light, until you put the chocolate frosting on the top, and this tends to soak into the sponge a bit. Not sure how the recipe would work out as fairy cakes tho, but if you do decide to make it and do the fairy cakes too, pop over and let me know how you got on

      Thanks for popping by 🙂
