Clouds of Rain (and cake)

I might have guessed it would rain yesterday even without Louiz's weather forecast. Since moving house 8 months ago I would estimate there have been a mere handful of Fridays without rain and the majority of them fell during the period between my outdoor broom disappearing and MrV replacing it. "Que ¿" you say. One of my chores for Friday, you see, is to sweep the patio and it rarely gets done because it is raining, except when the broom went missing and then we had glorious sunshine.

So instead the FB and I baked a cake. A chocolate cloud cake. And it was delicious, very very delicious. I would offer you a slice, but we ate it all. Sorry.




(recipe from Nigella Bites, but with milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate)

The cake looks amazing, did FB decorate it?

isabelle lets face it it wouldn't win any awards if there was a Miss Universe of cakes but it was incredibly delicious and very light.
Stomper I know, terribly organised. Its Organised Mom's list. I just follow it and tick things off when they get done.
MrsT, no that was me. It's whipped cream with a light dusting of cocoa powder. Chocolate cake bit was part cake part chocolate souffle.
Xstitch coming along very well. I've done a whole section now from the top to the bottom and started on the next bit along.
