Any excuse...

My hubby starts his new job on Monday,
so that's all the excuse I need, to make a celebratory chocolate cake!



I thought it was going to be a disaster -  the chocolate cake wouldn't cook in the middle, but it was burning on the edge - I ended up covering it with foil and baking it as long as I dare.  The result is that the edges are a little crispy, but I just slathered more ganache on them!! :-)

That looks a bit dodgy and I wouldn't eat it if I were you but if you want to send it round to my house for me to test it first to make sure it is ok after all then I'm willing to volunteer for the job! ;0) lol

Looks delish especially with the mini eggs on the top. Might have to go and buy some now and maybe a cake to go with them...
