From the same bakery as the previous strawberry frosted donuts and Halloween cookies, it appears that the baker was so delighted with my other donut photo that it now hangs proudly behind the shop's counter. And they said they made more donuts with varied frostings (milk chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and white chocolate) especially for me, and it was my turn to be delighted! XD
Trivia: my neighbours contributed to the making of this photo, as the colourful bokeh lights in the background are actually their clothes pegs c: (so no textures applied)

Rich chocolate sponge filled with vanilla whipped cream covered with milk and white chocolate ganache, finished off with Lindt Lindors and chocolate coated oreos.
Chocolate cake recipe [link] chocolate ganache recipe is in the topping ideas for my basic cake recipe [link]
I have been baking with Oreo's long enough to know that once you start adding them on top of cakes and things they go soft very quickly so I decided to cover them in chocolate to try and slow that process down as it needs to stay good until tomorrow afternoon at least. It was fun but very time consuming, it took as long to decorate to oreos and Lindors as it did bake the cake and make the ganache! It still makes me laugh making such beautfil and cute things while listening to such bands as Marilyn Manson and Metallica!
It's been a very long time since i have got to make my rich chocolate sponge, the last time must have been my youngest daughters 1st birthday 1 and a half years ago so i felt a little rusty making this so I ended up making two, a trial cake for the family to try and approve (which they loved by the way!) The other for the girlfriend of an old friend i went to college with 10 years ago whose birthday it is tomorrow. I felt very honoured being asked to make this cake as i haven't really seen George since we all left college all those years ago, just the odd time we see each other in town and chat on facebook so i was very pleased he trusted me enough to make this for him after him saying he has seen all my food creations on facebook and thought it about time he try some of my creations himself.
