Today is my dear friend Punita’s birthday and tomorrow is dear hubby’s birthday. We have a small get-together with friends at home. Though I ordered out most of the stuff, dessert is something I wouldn’t give up for someone else to do.
I’ve baked this Chocolate rum cake for both S and Punita. One cake for two dear people. Actually it’s the first time, I’ve ever made a proper cake with icing etc. It looks pretty delicious, it’s to be seen how it tastes. Before it gets all smashed and eaten, here’s a pic for you!
Its two layers of chocolate sponge cake with whipped cream inbetween and on the top. The cream is topped by chopped dried apricots soaked in rum. BTW the cake is soaked in rum too 🙂
So much rum around that when hubby came in home, he said- “I smell rum in the air, are you up to something ?”
Makes 12 generous slices
