And then there was chocolate

or rather more chocolate in the form of Miss Gabriela's (or "Gabby", as she is known to her friends) Birthday Cake.

Can I quietly tell all of you who are Mothers out there exactly how thrilled I am that, after 30 years of making Birthday cakes for one child or another, I now have permission to go all out & BUY them. No more up until 4.00am trying to decorate the cake of their dreams in secret.

Just as well we have an awesome bakery called "Divine Desserts" specialising in cakes & deserts using only fresh ingredients to call on these days.
Although my first choice would have been the Tiramisu Cheesecake - I did bow to slightly less refined tastes & went for the Chocolate Mud Cake for this occasion.
Anyhooo - I managed to quickly capture the cake before it was devoured feverishly.... never to be seen again ;o)

As if they needed more chocolate....

Send some here, send some here. LOL That looks absolutely divine!!

Having a good chuckle about the early hour decorating the cake stint. We're still there, still doing that. If ONLY I could convince hubby to buy them. :)) Now my motto is you want to make them then you're the one who is up until who knows when and I try and make sure I'm snuggled in bed. LOL I should be so lucky!!

Hope you all had a fab weekend. We're having a beautiful summers day. It's still winter. LOL

Hmmmm, I want some of that cake!!

I'm drooling over here, too. Dang, the cheesecake does sound gooooooooood, but this cake looks so silky and smooth.

Congrats on supporting the local bakery and not losing sleep :) The only cake I make myself anymore is German Chocolate cake for Christmas or sometimes for the hubby's birthday.
