Make them small and you can eat them all.. well with these little cakes you are going to want to eat them all! At least if you like chocolate (if you don’t I’m not sure if I feel sorry for you or envy you!). I hope you like them as much as my husband who was very sad he only got one and the rest were shipped off to a local cafe.
I fancily decorated mine with a fondant rose and if you want to do the same they are extremely easy to make. Just cut out about 8 little rounds of fondant in any colour you like, place them overlaying each other a bit in a row and roll up to the shape of a rose. I could make a tutorial about it but honestly, there are so many good ones on YouTube and I’m still not very good at making them so I won’t even try! After you’ve made a rose cut out some leaf shapes out of green fondant and off you go into baker fanciland!
