Making a Special Cake with AO

Making a Birthday cake for my boys has become a tradition, something that my Mum always did for my brother and I, and so something I wanted to do for my children. Each year I do something a little different but the one constant factor is chocolate! I have been using the same recipe for the sponge and buttercream for five years now and we all love it.  The sponge is soft, light and wonderfully chocolatey and the buttercream is just addictive!  I'm no pro when it comes to looks and decoration but my boys don't care, they just like the fact that I made it and that it tastes good. I hope they will remember these cakes just like I remember mine.
