This was our birthday cake 3 times this year. So since this blog was officially a year old a few months ago, I think it’s only fair it’s also shared on here. It is rich and dense and owns all the characteristics of a mud cake.
The icing, when it sets, it creates a beautiful crackly covering for your mud cake. It sets really really fast, so you will want to pour and spread it quickly. If you find it setting too fast, add a tablespoon of milk. be careful not to add too much though as it will affect how it sets.
Optionally you can halve the cake and add a ganache, both dark chocolate or a coconut ganache go beautifully.
