Garden Home Tales from the menagerie! Timbrado canaries

Chocolate cake

Said goodbye to the canaries, the three had been bred here in the garden, they were happy enough in the small cage and hopefully will fill someone else’s garden with their birdsong.

I made this chocolate sponge at the weekend, the sponge is the best I have Chocolatecakemar2011made for years, practice makes perfect! It is topped and filled with milk chocolate icing and strawberry jam.
