OK so this is my first attempt at blogging and I have decided to share all my cooking experiences with you. I am 20 and currently a student and am cooking on a students budget at the moment, so sorry there won't be loads of gourmet food on here.
My first attempt of something kind of fancy was an earl grey chocolate fudge cake. I got the recipe for this from my friends book 'Gizzis kitchen magic' by Gizzi Erskine. The cake was actually surprisingly easy to make and turned out very well, (I live with seven other students and was gone pretty quickly) which I took as a good sign. The only negative thing I would say is about the earl grey cream. I felt that the cream cheese used to make it tasted a bit weird in the cake, if I made it again, (which I probably will) I would omit the cream cheese filling and perhaps just use a butter-cream one instead.
I also did not make the earl grey gold dust as living in a student house we do not own a pestle and mortar.
I have included a picture of the cake however this is not the one I made as I didn't take any photos. The one I made was identical though except for the gold dust on the top.
I'm sorry I haven't included any pictures of my actual cake I promise there will be pictures with the next recipe. the recipe is written in the recipe tab.

If you made this cake let me know how it turned out and if you liked it?
Lots of love
