100 Days 100 Words #2 - Cake

Well its that time of the week again, so here is my second word Cake! Now I love cake, pretty much any kind of cake is good. I am also pretty lucky because I enjoy baking and like to think I'm pretty good at it (well the husband says I am!)
On Thursday night I decided to bake for the husband as I am away this weekend for a hen weekend! I thought I would be a good little wife and bake before I left him alone for two nights! You should have seen his little face, so happy! Anyway, I nearly always use Nigella Lawson's cake recipes as they always work for me, they are easy to understand and I secretly love her! (That's probably not a secret any more!)

So anyway enough about that, I was baking...

I decided I would make the husband some Rocky Road (receipe here) and then he could have it at home or take some to work for a snack! I was quite busy on Thursady night, what with in laws staying, packing for a weekend away, blogging and trying to bake! Its no wonder things got a little frantic and well I forgot to take a photo of the finished product and then it was too late. So here courtesy of Nigella's wonderfull website is what the Rocky Road looked like

I promise mine did look quite a lot like this!

So there you go week two, word two: Cake
