Nigella's chocolate cake recipe

I made a chocolate cake recipe by Nigella , instead of using sour cream I used homemade greek yoghurt. The cake didn't rise very high so I sandwiched it together with a little bit of chocolate icing on which I drizzled over some morello cherry sauce I had sitting in the back of cupboard, before putting on the top cake. I then iced the whole cake with the remaining icing, and decorated it with little pale blue sugar hearts. It was a hit especially with the oldest daughter who doesn't like chocolate cake or JAM.

adding a new string to my bow

I am in the 4th week of a waxing course, one of the many things on my - things to learn before I am too old - list.

It is amazing what people will reveal of and about themselves when there is a pot of hot wax nearby.
