Chocolate Cake. Mmmmm.....

So I made a chocolate mud cake which is my first cake I've made all by myself! (sans those ready-made just add oil and eggs ones)

I was really worried that my mixture was too runny. And light in colour. It looked quite watery in fact. But it turned out okay. Whew! And i got not bad feedback -  that's always good. 

And I like the idea of glaze rather than icing:

This what it looked like when it came out 

Side on:

Why is it not flat?
Bad greasing of the baking tray (am going to use baking paper next time)

Now for the finished product:

Later that night:

It tastes better the next day. I had a little bit of this left-over piece. The texture is better.

  1. Yep, it does taste better cold (e.g. next day), and also better to glaze it when it's cool/cold, so it won't look bumpy.
