I'm back. I have not done any baking or updating my blog since my last baking of pineapple tarts and almond cookies for Chinese New Year in January. That's because I have to clean the house, cook for the family, chauffeur the kids and guide my son in his studies after I sent my domestic helper home. It has been a tiring one and a half months.
I salute those full time homemakers who do without domestic helpers. I dread waking up each morning to see the amount of housework I have to do. Yes, I have the choice to clean on alternate days, but I just can't tolerate the house being dirty and untidy. To tell you the truth, I do find satisfaction when I see the house so clean and tidy. And I took the opportunity to clear away stuff that were no longer needed. Not a bad springcleaning exercise.
My new helper is finally here. Yeah .... I resume my baking adventure. This chocolate fudge cake is specially baked for Jesslin's daughter, Glenda. It's a layer of chocolate fudge sandwiched between two layers of light & moist chocolate genoise cake. The whole cake is then covered with more chocolate frosting. Definitely for chocolate lovers.
Happy Birthday, Glenda!
