Chocolate Cake for Children in Need

It’s been another busy week but managed to make a chocolate cake for the children in need cake sale at work on Friday. Experimented with a new filling to the cake I showed here a few weeks ago, made a white chocolate ganache. I melted 130g white chocolate in 100ml double cream and left it to cool. Then i gradually stirred it into 100g of cream cheese and left it in fridge to set before spreading it on the cake. It was a nice ganaceh but it disappeared in all the dark chocolate so still looking for a good filling…all was sold and eaten though so all good in the end 🙂

Chocolate Courgette Cake

Work and university have been taking up a lot of my time lately but I have finally worked my way through the last courgette from our garden. Have been tempted to try a chocolate version of my normal courgette cake and I think it worked well. The cake was very soft, moist and tasty.
There is a Children in need cake sale at work on Friday so I have been experimenting with white chocolate ganash today, it seems a bit thin to go in a cake but I have left it in the fridge over night, hopefully it will have set enough to be used tomorrow. I will let you know how I get on, hopefully I will get a photo before the cake is all gone too.
