A cake to take...

to a dinner party.

Following an invite to a dinner party, I was issued the following brief when I asked if there was anything that I could take:
- Something with chocolate to please the children,
- Big enough to feed 9.

After being given the brief, I drafted in the help of my mum and used Lorraine Pascale's 'I can't believe you made that cake' as a tried and tested option.

I have posted the recipe for this before so I will just post a picture of the finished result.
Lorraine Pascale's 'I can't believe you made that cake'

It seemed to go down well although I did struggle to answer the question that I was posed regarding my cake.  I was asked how many fingers constitute the perfect portion. My response was that to experience the full array of colours, it is definitely 3, however, aesthetically, 5 might look more visually attractive. 

Any answers or suggestions would be much appreciated!
