Strawberries Moist Chocolate Cake

Superlicious Moist Chocolate Cake


This is my second time making birthday cake. This is for my sister in law, Miss Jam Jam. Chocolate is always her all time favorite. As per requested, I made her this Chocolate Moist Cake. I had a great compliments from her and her family. HAHAHA. She definitely had made my day. I always feel delighted when someone enjoyed my cooking and baking.

Back to my cake review, the cake recipe is worth trying. It is moist and spongy. During the assembly of the cake, there are some leftover of cake slicing, strawberries and Ganache. I used them in chocolate fondue. The cakes go well with strawberries. TADAAAA....YUMMY Chocolate Fondue!!!
