About this Bake

My mum isn't very keen on fondant icing or buttercream but I wanted to make a special cake for her summer birthday. It's chocolate cake with fresh cream and strawberries dipped in chocolate. The roses makes it look pretty.

Top tip

Let the cake cool in the tin and then turn out. Leave the cake overnight before icing with fondant icing.
