I made my first cake using the Primrose Bakery book.   A flourless chocolate cake - it was absolutely delicious!!  Can't wait to try more - thinking of making the Maple and Pecan Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream Icing next!  (Diet??  What diet??).  

I had made some very healthy broccoli soup before I started on the chocolate cake and of course, that stunk the place out a bit even tho I had all the doors closed throughout the house.  But, once the cake was in the oven, a really strong and glorious chocolate aroma wound its way around instead so I ran upstairs and opened all the doors to let it get in everywhere!!  Even when I went out to the shops I could smell chocolate from idea of bliss!!  I used Lindt 85% cocoa chocolate and I think that is why the smell was so wonderfully strong :)
