Two days ago or rather two nights ago, my full of surprises son H, whose inspiration to cook something up always at an untimely hour is at it again. This time when I was getting ready to go to bed, he told me he wanted to bake a chocolate fudge cake. Oh, dear son...can't you wait to do this in the morning? Okay...mummy do not want to dampen yr cooking spirit...so do as you like. (He was feeling bored with so many days of cancelled class in college...the lecturers must be having paid holidays). So I told him I had not make any cakes for years so use what you can find in the kitchen. The last time he bake was some lovely brownies for my sister Karen's Christmas party. Here are some pics I took of him at work while losing some of my precious sleep.......

While the cake was baking in oven, he prepare his chocolate cream filling....creaming butter with icing sugar.
Adding in cocoa mixture to butter cream to be well mix.

Son H making some decorations for his cake from melted chocolate. He was quite disappointed as it did not turn out quite like what he wanted blaming it on the poor quality of chocolate and lack of proper utensils.....

After decoration with strawberries the cake was chilled in the fridge to be eaten as dessert the next day.....the recipe and our indulgence will be up in the next posting.
