Famously not said by Marie Antoinette. Alas like Alfred, I am not the King of cakes. I love to eat them, but lack of cake baking experience is my downfall. I hope to remedy this in the future. I think my next attempt will follow a recipe to the letter.
Shit: that has not stopped Hummingbird making a fortune. Seriously my cakes are not as naff as their over sugared pap. Thinking of suing me for that last remark, take me for every penny all 67 of them.
That said I am using Willies 100% cacao, I want to use it again. It is a superb ingredient, hey it’s made in Devon, so it going to be amazing. Anyone has any tips on using 100% cacao in cake let me know. I made his gooey pudding a while back, heaven! Check out his sorbet made with Dartmoor spring water and Madagascan Sambirano Superior 71% chocolate. We had Wild watercress tonight which relies on that same water, amazing. His chocolate is made from the best beans, seriously good stuff.
I hope to buy some Duffys Chocolate in London; perhaps I might mail order some before then. For the other world leaders in chocolate visit:
