No 3D chocolate printer? Get busy in the kitchen yourself!

Today, I sat in my car standing in non-moving traffic when the weather showed nothing but depression on my front window, I heard something that cheered me up: the first commercial 3D chocolate printer in on sale. Amazing, technology is not standing still, and apparently this is what it is leading to. Last year I already saw the news about “normal” 3D printer, but now there is also a specific chocolate version; for more information and movies go to this page.

If a chocolate 3D printer in not in your budget at the moment, the alternative is: get into the kitchen and get busy!

On request by my sister I made this delicious chocolate cake, for the and her work mates, which there better be many of because this cake was, like the last one, enormous. For the cake I used the base of this Bakerella cake, like I did the last time I have multiplied all ingredients times 1,5.

For the frosting I used this recipe of Nigella’s Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake, which goes perfect with this cake, and is quick and easy to make

The strawberries are my own addition

Enjoy!

We can’t eat unless it’s blogworthy

Everybody knows Nigella Lawson, the domestic goddess, she makes the most delicious looking sweet things!

So, when we Recently we had some friends over for a sunday dinner, I decided to make her chocolate and raspberry pavlova for dessert.

before we could cut even one piece, I had everybody wait for me to take some pictures, as I said, we can’t eat it unless it’s blogworthy….

so this time not a series, but a single photo, of what is a simple but really nice and sweet dessert.

the recipe you can find in Nigella’s Forever Summer, and there is even a clip of it on you tube.

Enjoy, and if you’re gonna make this, have fun!
