Chocolate Feather Bed


This is my first cake recipe from Rose's Heavenly Cakes. You can find it here. All the recipes in this book are really detailed and complicated, and this one was too.

You'll need 12 eggs to make this cake. I only used 6 and made it half size. That's why it didn't come out as pretty as the picture in the book, because I had too little material to work with. It was hard getting the cake off the parchment paper, so I lost a lot of it in the process (and the parchment paper does not PEEL off!). But I seriously can't bring myself to use 12 eggs on a single cake. It was quite small, but very airy and chocolate-y.


The taste gets better the next day and I thought it tasted almost like my favorite chocolate cake from a hotel in my hometown. I haven't decided if I'm ever going to make it again, because there are so many more recipes to try out. This one really took me a lot of time to bake it, while the result wasn't that spectacular.

Tanja, you are so sweet! Thank you for thinking of me! :)

It's too bad that the cake wasn't spectacular after all the work, but it really looks stunning, especially with all the chocolate shavings on top! My mom likes chocolate but hates the density of most chocolate cakes, so perhaps I'll give this one a go :)
