    One of my favourite topics! Chocolate cake is my favourite! Why not make a simple chocolate sponge and fill it with chocolate butter cream, and serve with lashings of (ideally clotted) cream. Simple and quick, but very tasty, as long as it's moist enough. I'll test it. :D

    Yep! Cooking is all about experimenting and trying different things without really knowing what it will be like. For instance, you could have a chocolate sponge with chocolate butter cream and jam. It may sound odd, but it is certainly tasty.

    Go for the chocolate sponge with choc butter cream and enjoy! It is important to mix all the ingredients very thoroughly and to spread two greesed tins equally with the mixture. You'll easily be able to cook it. :)

    Chocolate fudge cake
    Devils food cake
    Chocolate fudge brownies

    Anything with chocolate is good. As long as you don`t have to share it of course!

    Pineapple upside down cake is good too :)

    How about flapjack. Or shortbread (love the smell of warm shortbread) :yum: Or anything with chocolate.
    As you're going out on a date, how about covering him with chocolate!? :naughty::yum:

    When I have a baking day I start off with Corned Beef Pie, Sausage Rolls then go onto the sweet stuff, I make scones, butterfly cakes and maybe a chocolate sponge.
    Normally its a Sunday I bake and then we have what my Daughter calls a party tea. So we have hotdogs on sticks, egg sandwiches, pickled onions, crisps and the stuff we made on the afternoon :)

    That sounds lovely! It reminds me of when we used to go and visit my Great Aunts on Sunday afternoons when I was little. There`d only be about 8-10 of us there but there`d be a spread like they were feeding the 5000! No kidding. They`d have ham and cheese, salad, bread, sausage rolls, fairy cakes, big cakes, trifle, you name it!

    And they always used to ply my mum with sherry!!
