Moist Chocolate Cake

Happy Birthday to my 2 colleagues that shared the same birthday ~ today. I baked the cake this early morning and brought it to the office. It's still warm when we eat it.

The only set back about this cake was .... there's a cracked line at the top (whereby i removed the ring before the cake is cool off) otherwise it's a nice yummy cake. :( Running out of time, otherwise i could have done a plastic surgery to restore the beauty of this cake to 一切完美

Now into the box and ready to office for the mini celebration. I've disgust the crack by placing the Happy Birthday tag there to kinda of block the defect.

This is my share of the sliced cake. Yummy ! not too sweet and moist enough.

Overall, I'm happy with this bake despite the defect.
