I really want to share a funny story about this cake, well I love cake a lot and i love chocolate, trust me. It was on my sister’s birthday and well we had to come up with a cake choice and we all voted chocolate cake for her day.
She wasn’t around but she was expected at home on that day. After preparation, the cake came out so perfect and so captivating.
I couldn’t stop staring in fact my throat was getting longer than expected, lol. The aroma was getting distracted; I couldn’t take my mind off the cake.
I couldn’t wait for my sister to come so we could lynch the cake as I kept calling her line to get her home fast. She came in finally and the party began, okay let’s move to the cutting of the cake.
The cake was finally cut and our first bite taken, to my surprise everybody’s manner changed completely as we rushed after the cake. I thought I was the only one salivating.
We lost our senses over this yummy, delicious, attractive record breaking (you can add your. Lol) cake. We almost ruined her party or maybe we ruined it, oh well thank goodness it was a family thing but trust me it was fun and enjoyed it. Family is bae. Back to the subject, preparation of chocolate cake is not something difficult.

Preservatives are highly optional but it is sometimes recommended especially for occasion cake that needs to be preserved or coated with icing or fountain. Preservative powder is used to extend the shelf life
I made use of squadron as a liquid preservative to keep the cake from going stale. Another alcohol can serve here like brandy or rum
