Welcome to part 2 of Donna Hay's chocolate cake switch up attempt. This is a follow up from my previous post. Do you recall that I mentioned that Donna Hay's ultimate chocolate cake gets you an 8-inches, 8 layers round cake? Not anymore..
This is my attempt to think outside the box, showing you 1 great cake recipe, with 3 different simple approach to making some great tea time treats and adding 1 simple decorated birthday cake that will impress your family and friends. Though it's not some fancy-schmancy piped butter cream cake, in my opinion simplicity and balance of taste in a cake is key.

I've decided to make this cake a 6-inches, 6 layered cake instead. To bring out the chocolate cake flavour, I frosted the cake with my very own Hazelnut Butter cream (doesn't it sounds like Nutella) and covered the side of the cake with finely crushed Oreo cookie for some added crunch, and topped the cake with dark chocolate Godiva pearls. What do you think? Doesn't it sound divine?
Also, I have go think of a cake for a sweet 21 year old girl. Do you think this cake flavour will make her happy? Might have to change the cake decor though.. Any suggestions?
This post has a lot of questions ;). If not, and like me you like Hazelnut Cream spread or Nutella spread, give this frosting a go. A switch to the classic Chocolate Butter cream. I'm looking forward to hear all your thoughts or suggestions. Have a good week ahead.
