The first time I had Bobbette & Belle Chocolate Hazelnut Cake was about four months ago (I posted a photo on my tumblr), for dad’s birthday I believe. He instantly fell in love with it, he likes anything with nuts and chocolate.
So for father’s day (June 21, 2015), dad requested the same cake. If you like Ferrero Rocher, I’m pretty sure you’d like this cake. The chocolate topping reminds me of the regular ferrero rocher. The chocolate layers are not too light or dense, just the perfect ratio of fluffiness to chocolate. I’m surprised that I didn’t find the ganache between the cake layers too thick. For me, the worst thing in a cake is when the cream layer in the cake is as thick as the cake itself. I love anything nutty, so having the cake covered with hazelnut is a bonus. (This is a six inch cake.)
Mom’s been to the shop. When she came home, she told me all she saw and asked us (dad and I) if we wanted to have afternoon tea there. At first I was like ‘nawh’, but now having seconds thoughts. I would like to try other cake flavours and baked goods.

For my birthday, I want a colour ombre cake, or something like that. So in preparation, I started experimenting. And from this, I concluded that I’m not good at tweaking recipes, never mind following the recipe.
Please DO NOT bake if you’re missing an ingredient. I learned the hard way.
I wanted my cake to have chocolate flavour and it wasn’t a good idea.
What happened to my kitchen skills? I had trouble separating the whites from the yolks.
Adding colour to the recipe when the mixture was brown-coloured because of the coco powder.
Whisked the egg whites too much.
Added the whites to the wet mixture.
The colours aren’t the greatest.
This was a disaster. The cake was mushy and not light or fluffy (which an angel cake is supposed to be). It hardly rose (in height). I am never doing this again withOUT a proper recipe.
Dinner for 23 people. A new world record.

A baked cupcakes! Yummy! Looks like it came from a cupcake/ dessert store.
More cake. Mango cake!
