Lopsided cake – how can you resist?

Lop-sided Liars' Cake

Lop-sided Liars’ Cake

It may not be the prettiest cake, and it certainly the least symmetrical that I’ve made, but its got chocolate and brandy and almonds in it, and its celebrating Lovers’ Lies. You may be able to recognise the passing resemblance to Annie Rickard Straus’ fish from the cover…

lovers lies fishI was going to ice on Lovers’ Lies but decided that freehand icing writing was beyond me and might do serious damage to my already bumpy icing.

So long as you aren’t allergic to any of the ingredients, you might like to try a slice, it is an epic among cakes.

Cake available for one night only, at Daunt Books 51 South End Road, London NW3 2QB. Almost opposite Hampstead Heath Station. Oh – and some wine and nibbles – and good company from some of the many authors whose stories are featured in the book – I did mention the book, did I?
