But this post is really meant to be about the cake! I found this cake when I first joined Pinterest and bookmarked it to make in the future.
First I made a chocolate Victoria Sponge. I use the recipe from The Great British Book of Baking, leaving out 25g flour and substituting it with cocoa powder. I then made an industrial sized quantity of buttercream using this recipe doubled. I made two sponges and then sandwiched them together, then coated with buttercream and put a kitkat fence around it.
Today is a happy day full of celebration. In the back of my mind, I feel a little sad, as this day marks the beginning, 3 years ago, of our 3 month hospital stay. But today isn't about that, it's all about the Joseph that he is now, a happy, strapping, cheeky lad.
*Don't know why, but smarties and M&Ms are known as chocolate buns in this house!
