20th Birthday Cake

20th Birthday Cake

I made a simple cake for my girlfriend's 20th birthday (the second night of celebrations...:P). I took the recipe I had for a molleux au chocolat (chocolate moulds?), and adapted it to a cake form. I essentially took the same ingredients, flour, eggs, chocolate, sugar and so forth, but mixed them differently and at different times. The white tag is marzipan with chocolate writing (tempered chocolate in a small paper).

I am in a hotel school and thus have access to many recipe books in the library, but this one comes from experimenting with a pastry chef's recipe and fine-tuning it to my taste!

Is it easy to make?
-VERY easy to make, and thus much better to impress people! She loved it...

How long does it take?
-45-60 mins, including preparation and baking time.

Will you tell me the recipe?
-If people leave nice comments, maybe :P

This cake looks amasing, and I bet it's tasty as well :) But now I'm afraid I might need your help. Since you are from Lausanne, do you happen to know if there is any cake bakery that can deliver cakes on home adresses? It's my boyfriends birthday, he is in Lausanne, and I am in Montenegro ;) (probably never heard of it - small country across Italian part of Mediteranian sea :) ), so I want to surprise him . Please help :) thank you in advance
