When Mr B started his new job in Melbourne, I made cupcakes for him to take into the office for Friday afternoon tea. Apparently they were a big hit, and he came home asking, “Can we have chocolate cake next time? Something impressive, with layers?”
I put together this chocolate layer cake with butterscotch cream and topped with caramel hazelnuts, using a recipe from delicious: simply the best (a cookbook given to me, ironically, by gorgeous ladies from his former team. I never got a chance to make them anything out of it. Sorry, Kay and Mel!).
