It's a friend's birthday tomorrow and I need to make him a cake with a friend...
Anyone got a good recipe? Probably gonna make chocolate...but taking any other suggestions too...
And to turn it into a discussion...
What type of cake do you like? (If any.)
What's the best cake you've ever had?

Best I have ever had was a "triple chocolate fudge cake", which had a layer of dark chocolate, a layer of dark/milk chocolate and a layer of milk chocolate. Unfortunately it was so rich, if you ate more than one slice you would feel like chucking...

My favourite blog is about cakes Cakewrecks (http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/)

If you are attempting any complicated decoration check there to see ways in which it can go horribly wrong.

I think the coolest cake I've seen is this one:


I've made a few, best being a triple chocolate cheesecake that I'm constantly bugged to make for people (sorry, no recipe sharing...family secret). Although as far as actual cakes, I'm still fond of using our Mario mold, and I'm lazy enough that I normally use box mixes...

One of these days, I'm going to try and do a d20 cake.
