What's left of it.
I decided to try out this recipe the other day and my God did it turn out gorgeous!
It doesn't look the same as it did in the recipe book (actually mine doesn't look that good at all but it's tastes fantastic!). I decided I wanted to see if I could make cupcakes with the mix too so i put half of it into a loaf tin (instead of a round tin) and the other half I made into cupcakes. The cupcakes were ok but the actual cake turned out gorgeous!
I'll definitely be making this again and using the round cake tin and also I'm going to use real white choc as opposed to cooking choc!
There's no stopping me now that I have my new hand mixer! If I make all the recipes I want to try I'll be as fat as a fool LOL
