“Would you mind if we borrowed your cake?”
I watched Katey’s face contort in discomfort, as her mind wrestled with the thought of her hours of creative labour being marched out of the building to locations unknown.
It was my first visit to the foodie sensation that is Edinburgh’s Tealicious, and while normally I wouldn’t be so bold as to ask someone to loan me her cake, running this blog is having a strange affect on me.
The Tealicious event was held in the beautiful area of Edinburgh knowns as Leith, and I knew just the view I wanted to capture with this cake.
After a sincere promise to return it unscathed, Miss Will Travel For Cake and I took it down to a nearby bridge and VERY CAREFULLY perched it next to the water to be photographed.
Here it is basking in the Leith sunshine, the Mint Chocolate Chip Layer Cake.
Katey, who can be found baking and blogging at Edinburgh Eats, was inspired by fellow blogger Sweetapolita’s recipe. The result was a cake that resembled Viennetta ice cream and tasted like the birthday cake you always dreamed of as a child. Layers of chocolate between layers of cream and thick buttery icing and even more chocolate.
