Sundays, swing, and stars. A veritable cacophony of alliteration in the Halo Baking Emporium and Chocolaterie in Birmingham UK, to which we can add sunshine, as there was plenty of that too today. A quick gluten free chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream frosting and mini chocolate stars was created this morning to take to the Sunday Swing, and a swinging Sunday it certainly was. A few hours of Charleston, a jump or two of Lindy Hop, and tea and cakes aplenty to replenish all us dancers for the next few hours.
The interior of this cake is made to the same popular recipe as the Gluten Free Love Cake, but covered with a vanilla buttercream frosting rather than any sugarcraft or fondant. It certainly hit the spot after a few turns round the dance floor, which is more than can be said for my errant left foot which had a beat and a bounce all of its own going on this afternoon. To the unendingly patient woman on my left, and in particular to your shins, I cannot apologise enough and do hope that a few slices of this cake eased the bruising!
