My friend Laurian’s birthday cake

I was too broke for a cappucino somewhere so I invited my friend over instead, rushed home after work and quickly baked her a cake. It’s such an easy recipe. I found it on the reverse of the Nestlé Cacao label quite a few years ago. I didn’t have dark chocolate for the icing so I dumped a load of cacao in it to make up for it. I used a step ladder to pick a lemon from the tree in my garden. Fresh lemon juice, vanilla essence and good quality coffee is my secret for great ‘chocolate’ icing:)
