Sweet Sweet Summer

I made a quick cake for my cousin’s birthday this past weekend. A chocolate berry cake – the perfect summer cake. Yummy.

I used my favorite recipe for a chocolate Guinness cake from Nigella Lawson, filled it and covered it in almond buttercream, and topped it with sweet, sweet berries.

If you’ve never tried a chocolate Guinness cake, do it now. It’s splendid. I can say with all honesty that I never want my chocolate without my Guinness – it’s that good.

Unfortunately, the cake ended up a bit on the drier side this time. Chalk it up to the balancing act of parenthood 🙂
