My (not so) Small Boy is 11 today. What a year for change 2013 will be...High School for J, and hopefully off to University for L.
This is his birthday cake. The loveliest chocolate fudge cake (recipe from Carnation found by my best friend Jo). It's now become the cake of choice in this house. The chocolate fingers were an inspired addition to ramp up the chocolatey calories!
P.S I substitute the corn oil with sunflower oil.
Also a thrifty tip to make it cheaper - Carnation Caramel is approx £1.75 for a 397g tin.
Morrisons sell a copycat version Farmlea Caramel for £1.15 for the same size tin.
