Birthday Post #2: A Guest Post At Cake Whiz

Ok, so you remember how, to celebrate with my family, I made an apple strudel which kicked butt (G rated blog ;)) because it had added caramel? Well, one of the reasons for this choice was actually because my family is not particularly fond of chocolate. Like I am ๐Ÿ˜‰

So while we had fun, consumed vanilla ice cream at an alarming rate and enjoyed life to commemorate my 17th birthday, I also celebrated with my gorgeous, chocolate loving, chocolate obsessing, chocolate all buddies at school ๐Ÿ˜€

I decided to make something which just wasn’t full of average, normal chocolate…

It was full of quadruple chocolate… also known as four types of gorgeous chocolate…

And Nutella… so much Nutella… ๐Ÿ˜‰

But spoilers! (As River Song would say :P)

  3. Huhu Uru!

    Happy happy belated birthday wished from my side! As I can see, you know how to celebrate, and I wished I could have helped you in the tasting. =D

    Congrats to your gorgeous awards as well!! you earned it ๐Ÿ˜‰


  4. Hahah, it’s probably because you keep making stuff with chocolate, they are getting sick of it! Although I don’t entirely know how that’s possible. I eat far too much chocolate, and I have never been sick of it (that’s a lie. Never for too long.. :p)


  5. That ruffle cake is divine – what a beautiful job!! Did you change your site again? It looks lovely! (and strangely, though I always though I had “followed” you, it seems that it’s not showing up–will re-follow now :))
    ps- congrats on your awards!


  6. I’m so sorry – I am WAY behind on my blog reading! This is fantastic – I love the peacock. The most cool thing is I got a jar of Nutella and I LOVE IT!!!! Always thrilled to read your posts.


  7. Yum! That looks absolutely gorgeous. Happy Birthday. What a great way to celebrate your birthday with chocolate. My husband doesn’t like chocolate either so I never usually make chocolate cakes as I’d be the only one eating them…. on second thoughts, that might be a good thing!

    Must check out her site ASAP. Her decorating skills (especially the fondant) look great! It’s a new passion of mine (now that I’m whipping out birthday cakes, cupcakes, treats, you name it for my own kiddos) and I have tons of room for improvement. Oh, and happy birthday! I’m feeling a little old seeing as how I’m almost twice your age:)

    I bet you’re very popular at your school Uru, especially when you walk in bearing gifts for your own birthday. That quadruple chocolate slice would have given you just the right amount of buzz to get through those tedious subjects like maths and science. And I shared that beautiful peacock on my facebook site. She is so creative and clever xx


    • Haha I am pestered to bring my cooking to school all the time so a birthday is the perfect time ๐Ÿ˜€
      And it does make the day shorter!
      So glad you did my friend, Abeer’s creations deserve to be world famous ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. You’re always such a thoughtful blogger, CCU, thanks so much for awarding my blog!! I don’t usually follow the “rules” of these awards, but I always really appreciate receiving them nonetheless.. it’s a great honor coming from someone with a blog as wonderful as yours! Happy Birthday again.. and I’m off to visit your friend’s blog:D xx


  11. Mmm, chocolate and hazelnut are such an unbeatable pair, and the texture of those cakes look like pure fudgy goodness!

    Cake art is really inspiring, and these are some stunning examples you’ve featured here. I wish I could even approach that skill level…


    • Thank you my friend!
      And I know how you feel, it is beyond me how someone can be so extraordinarily talented (though I do think the same of you :D)
      I learn from you all!

    Congratulations to the awards … and to this colorful and calorie filled post. Loads of wonderful stuff here. My favorite could be that pink ruffle cake, but I don’t like frosting so I go for the cute and stylish sushi cakes.
