Chocolate Fudge Cake for Lee's Birthday
Today is my colleague Lee's 40th birthday. Happy birthday Lee! Lee is hosting a wonderful party for the occasion, into which she has put so much effort and planning. I don't think I have put so much effort into anything since I ceased having to choose then timetable University subjects. I hope Lee has a magnificent evening.
To celebrate Lee's birthday, I made her a cake for work. Lee is on a weight loss plan at present, so I made her a Low Fat Chocolate Fudge Cake from the Australian Women's Weekly 501 Low Fat Recipes. You can find the recipe online here.
This is the cake before frosting:
However, a birthday cake is not a birthday cake without decoration, so I made it a little less low fat by making up a frosting with low fat cream cheese (250g) and icing sugar (100g). The decorations are writing gel, silver cachous and crystallised violets.
This is what the cake looks like once sliced:
Lee seemed to enjoy her cake - glad she liked it.
Have a great weekend all.
