Daimler Cake

May 26, 2008

Today is my Uncle Ben’s 40th birthday, and to celebrate his wife organised a big surprise party for him – they live in the North Island, so she flew him down, distracted him with a trike race, and then brought him home, where about 80 people were waiting. He has a couple of Daimlers, which theoretically are being restored, so we decided a Daimler cake would be fitting.

The cake is chocolate mud cake with chocolate ganache… And it weighed a ton! (it didn’t help that the only board I have that is large enough for such a monster cake is my 20kg slab of marble)

Happy birthday Uncle Ben!



  1. This cake just seemed to get bigger the more we ate of it – It’s like restaurants where you get huge plates and the food looks minimal but turns out to be a bigger portion than normally served at home. Very delectable and rich….

  2. Well, it wasn’t small to start with! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 3.5kg of chocolate, 2kg of butter, 1 litre of cream… Not exactly super nutritous, either! ๐Ÿ˜‰
