Cake anyone?

Good morning to everyone hope you are all well.  Are we all sick of chocolate now?
My eldest daughter baked a cake for her sister the other day, it was a trial run as it isn't her birthday till the 4th but because she has coeliac disease and can't tolerate Gluten, she was making it using a Gluten Free recipe and wanted to make sure it would turn out ok cos it's not like cooking with ordinary flour I can tell you.
Boy did it turn out ok. It was soo yummy. A rich chocolate chip cake covered in butter cream.
 A trillion calories a slice!!!!
And we have to do it all over again......oh no (oh yes) hee hee.
This is the first cake she has EVER made so I think she did a fabulous job.
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Songbird and the theme for the next two weeks is
'Five Colours In her Hair'
Our fab sponsor is Saturated Canary
