Absolutely yummy! Devil's Food Cake & Chocolate Mousse Buttercream taken from Jill O' Conner's Sticky Chewy Messy Gooey. The cake batter is a bit tricky esp. when adding the cake flour as flour pockets might develop, so have to fold it really well. But it is the most delicious, moist & soft chocolate cake ever. Live up to it's name as Devil's Food Cake. Jill's Chocolate Mousse Buttercream compliments well with the cake and i like the fact that it is also relatively stable in this our hot weather. I was afraid that frosting the entire cake with the chocolate mousse buttercream will be too much and personally i prefer the cake to be covered with chocolate fudge icing.
I found a fudge icing recipe from Nigella Lawson but it didn't turned out quite what i expected and almost wanted to throw the entire frosting away. However, i was adamant to get it right and experimented further by adding a few ingredients on my own and finally managed to create the chocolate fudge icing that i wanted in terms of taste & consistency. I'm in love with this fudge frosting - it sets so well! But I am not too sure if i can repeat the same frosting though..lol!..i can't recall exactly what i added..:p
As for decoration, it was a last min thing and totally effortless..i couldn't stand seeing the cake un-decorated, so i just add a few butterflies and some flowers..not fantastic deco but i guess better than nothing..lol!
